May The Fourth Be With You inspired Cards and Art Journaling by Cat Kerr

Hi, everyone! Cat Kerr here! When my kids were young I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I quoted Yoda to them. Ha! Yes, it’s true. He just always seemed to offer the perfect words after a fall or even a disappointment. His simple truths remind me not only of a galaxy far far away, but they also remind me that right here, in our small little lives, life is about getting up again after you fall. Just like Luke, all we have to do is…use the force and muster up some courage when we’re feeling lost.

With today being May the fourth, I decided to make some cards for my kiddos (now that they're off living their own adventures) because it doesn't matter how old you are, growing into who you are is achieved by making a series of mistakes and learning from them. We never arrive, we never stop learning, and even though it may feel scary at times, the ultimate purpose is to grow and be better than we were yesterday. We just need to have a little patience.

Patience you must have my young Padawan. Yoda

Today's cards were created by using some of my “Space” themed Stencils, because, hello Space, get it, heehee, as well as some of my other stencils. I started by picking out a handful of colors and then having a play session on my Gel Press monoprinting plate. I love using black card stock and I added texture with the stencils and then continued to play until I was happy with the layers!

Happy creating and May the Force be with you, my friends.
