Shock, lock, & barrel masks from the nightmare before Christmas... 1st: make desired shape with foil. Then cover whole thing with masking tape. Cut out holes for eyes and add extra tape around eye holes. 2nd: Paper mache front and back of masks. (I did three layers on each mask.) Once it fully dries, paint all masks white. 3rd: Paint each mask it's rightful color & add details. & now it's complete!
"I recently read in the book My Stroke of Insight by brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor that the natural life span of an emotion—the average time it takes for it to move through the nervous system and body—is only a minute and a half. After that we need thoughts to keep the emotion rolling. So if we wonder why we lock into painful emotional states like anxiety, depression, or rage, we need look no further than our own endless stream of inner dialogue." ~ True Refuge - Tara Brach
