Home Sweet Home
So I ran with it and using mixed media, made my page. If you don't recognize me, I'm the one in the skirt walking toward my lovely home, filled with the people I love and the comforts that soothe me.
I painted, ModPodged, stamped, collaged, and hand-lettered on my page. I even used embossing powder and distress paint to change a bright and shiny brass key to the old and flaky thing with wings on my page.
I found this very cool blog today called path of positivity. They spread positive thoughts, ideas and motivation, which I think is fantastic. They also offer monthly challenges, this month's theme being "optimism." I'm entering my art journal page in the challenge with a short description of why this page offers optimism to me: When I step into my home, I feel a surge of optimism that my day will finish off on a good note. I know that the night will not be full of roses and fairy tale goodness, but it's MY home and MY family and there is love. And wherever there is love, there is hope, a beacon of optimistic light piercing whatever dark thoughts I picked up throughout my day.
I'm optimistic about my art, too, which is why I'm working on my art journal.
