Inspiration stones are stones with inspiring, positive statements or words written or engraved on them. Using positive affirmations and inspiring words, we can reinforce our positive thinking, reach goals, focus on important things, and even counteract the negative thoughts that may stream through our minds, sometimes unconsciously.
I've always liked the idea of inspiration stones, for me or to give as meaningful gifts. There is a huge variety of ready made ones, but if your budget doesn't allow you to purchase them, or you are a DIY kind of person as I am, you can easily make your own. Without breaking the bank and having much fun!
Yesterday, my hubby and I gave ourselves quality time together in the park, and while enjoying those special moments, we collected rocks to be transformed into inspiration stones.
There are many ways you can embellish your stones, I opted for a simple, white coat of gesso and a black felt- tip pen to write on them. I then sealed the writing with transparent spray paint. Easy peasy. But you can choose to make yours colored, with drawings, collaged, and on and on. Just play.
