The Path of Generosity

What do you want to accomplish in this new year?  I have several resolutions that I hope will shape me into a better person.  One of them is to try to perform a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) each day.  Another is to be a better example to my grandchildren.  Children learn from what we do, not just what we say.  So I will try to be on my best behavior, especially when they're around.  Which leads me into my new canvas.

I created it for the Path of Positivity's January challenge, whose theme is GENEROSITY.  One of our monthly sponsor's is IKE'S ART, whose image, "New Baby," I used here.  I put a base of matte medium and yellow and pink tissue papers.

I printed Ike's digi image and colored it with Copics: R00,11; YR00; E31,95 and Spectrum Noir PL1.  I fussy cut the image (isn't it darling?) and adhered it to my canvas with Mod Podge.  The sentiment is a mix of glitter alphas and Stickles.

I played with leftover lace, sequins, flowers, buttons, stickers and ink until I got the effect you see above. Need a little positivity in the New Year?  Wander down the Path of Positivity-whether you need some positive words, some creative inspiration, or a chance to win great prizes from the following sponsors:

 ·   Ten digital images from Creative Bug Digitals for the person out of the top seven who receives the most votes during voting week.
·     Three digital images from Ike's World for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
·     Five digital images from Digi Stamps 4 Joy, our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
·     One digital designer paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.

·     One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles as well.

Such a beautiful creation Pat with an even more important message. As you state, children learn from what they see the adults around them do, not what they say; so, it is wonderful that you want to be conscious of your actions around your grandchildren and show them the best kind of person you can be. That is certainly one way to be generous. I'm sure that they will grow up to be better adults because of it.
