Wings...

"I'm no angel, but i've spread my wings a bit..." ~ Mae West

Happy Thursday gang!! so sorry, i've beer super swamped the last 2 days and have neglected blogland a bit... but i'm back today to share with you my journal page for Week 8 of He-Art Journaling with The Greeting Farm....

the assignment this week was THE POWER OF ONE... use one word as the focus on your page... thinking about the assignment, it would have probably been common to use a word like love, family, happy, etc... common words that we use daily as an expression of life... i was actually geared to using something along the lines of dreams, wish, heart and then thought about my awesome fairy/butterfly stamps and said "WINGS" can be interpeted in many ways... so i bring you my 'wings' page....
i've gathered up my TGF images with wings, which is Flutter Anya and the fairies, Tink, Chloe and Ava... Angel Anya was um, missing for some reason... she has been found now... hehehe... anyway... i stamped Flutter first so i could get a feel of where i was going to put my main word... then i stamped the fairies around that... didn't give much color to them except for the burst on their clothing and wings... i kinda like it like that... =D by now you know if i can, i'll throw in a quote (they really do help to inspire and make you think of your obstacles) and i found a very good one this week...

"Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your WINGS as you fall" ~ Randy Bradbury

is this quote not true?! i certainly believe in it... if you don't take risk, you'll never know right... if you don't try, you'll never know... if you don't jump, you'll never learn how to fly...

i painted the word wings in gold paint with a hint of black to accent it... free hand so the writing is sorta, messy... hehe! oh and how could i forget to mention the little butterfly stickers i added too...

this art journal class/project has really opened the sentimental side of me... it makes me realize so many things i've either forgoten or couldn't see until now... wings has hit my crafting aspect of life... i've spread them to try many different things, meet new friends and take a step out of the comfort zone every once in a while... and the feelings have been remarkable!

thank you, my sweet and awesome blogging sisters and friends for helping me spread my wings into a whole new world of adventure!!!

be back again soon with some crafty sharings....
