Me in March – 2017

I have a lot of different little projects going on all the time.  It’s how I relax.  It’s how I express my creativity.  It’s how I learn.

In picture #43 I talked about my One Little Word project with Ali Edwards and shared one of my February pages.

In March the prompt was to make some collage pages (or a big collage board if that’s what you felt compelled to do).  I chose to make four pages to keep in my planner.

This is the first one.  I really want to continue to craft and I know there are a lot of very talented people out there who can make cards and scrapbooks so I made this one to remind myself that I don’t have to compete with them.  There is room in this wide world for all kinds of creative voices and mine is just as valid as anyone else’s.  I only need to compete (be true to) myself.  I love the colors in this and I am really happy with the way the picture of the bird with the saying works so well with the background sheet.

 This next one reminds me that I may not always know where the stairs lead, but if I believe in myself and explore, reach for the top, take the proverbial leap of faith if you will, the magic will happen.  It also teaches me that I can’t just fly to the top, I need to take the baby steps and prepare for reaching the top.  Work at it.

Part of the planning and baby steps to climbing to the top involve journaling and listing and brainstorming and exploring the whys and why nots of what I want to do.  Love the flowing dress on this girl and the words on the background paper are like a glimpse into her diary.  

This last one, of course, is me taking my 365 pictures!  Keep taking chances and trust are the key words here.  Explore.  Watch the world around me.  Believe in myself.  I’m using this one as picture #65 in my 365 project.  

So, what do you think?  Do you ever journal?  Make collages?  Love to hear about it!

    I don’t journal, but keep a blog. I don’t make collages, but seem to redecorating this house endlessly which is all about putting eclectic elements together to form a pretty cohesive whole. Or so I tell myself! 😉

      Ha-Ha, I was going to say that my paper collages are probably cheaper than your redecorating but then I remembered how much I spend on scrapbooking supplies so we’re probably even! Thanks for stopping by Ally!
