Be The Light

1) I have on my playlist Kathy Troccoli's song, Go Light Your World.  The lyrics were the first thing I thought of when I saw Valerie's December challenge, light and darkness, at Art Journal Journey.  (I'm #128)

Carry your candle, run to the darkness....light up your world.

2) This also fits well for the December challenge (until January19) at Mixed Media Place, having chosen the center photo from the mood board for inspiration:  your true nature is luminous. I'm #22

3) Lastly, when I read Karenkia's blog post, one paragraph in particular struck a chord, about letting your light shine and being a reflection for others' light.

It is a good way to start the new year, don't you think?....

I wanted to find a luminous "face, and ended up using a rather large copy of this Facebook freebie from Moonlight Journey.  In PSE software, I made the hue as yellow as possible for my printer.

Other Materials:
Daler Rowney Simply Acrylic Lemon Yellow Paint 
Liquitex Basics Acrylic Cadmium Yellow
Art Alchemy Metallique Ancient Coin Acrylic Paint. 
STAMPlorations script stamp from Mixed Media Elements
Red Lead Paperworks stencil 
trim from stash (I think the mini roses are Maya Road).
The beautiful butterfly that matched perfectly is a gift from a craft friend.

(I apologize for the wonky photo--indoors with Ott light with a journal page that wants to curl.)

I'm entering this also here:
