STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 106: NEW ADVENTURES

Oh, yes!  It's Wednesday and that means another Stampotique Designers' Challenge today.  Sarinda Jones is our hostess and has an interesting challenge for us:
This time of year always has me thinking about embarking on new adventures. This could be travel, new technique, new idea, something that you have tried for the first time. Anything that is branching out on a "new adventure."
When I think of adventure, I guess I have to agree with Sarinda in that, first, I think travel.  But, that is not necessarily always the case.  Sometimes, just getting through life can be an adventure.  When I think of the challenges that have faced me over the now almost 7 decades of life, I am amazed at the adventures along the way.  This is the thought that has inspired my next entry into my "Judy Journal" (you can see details on that journal here).



Your visit both pleases and inspires me, as do your comments!

Joy to you!

  1. Kay, I am always inspired by your thoughts and artwork ... and today's is no exception. Really love this piece and what it symbolizes as that's exactly what I experienced yesterday ... an upside down way of looking at things. Quite an eyeopener. ;-) Hope all is well with you and yours and your summer is enjoyable! (((hugs)))

  6. Playing in my art journal is certainly a 'new adventure' for me, and I think your choice of colour and images/words are perfect!

  7. I love this new page in your Judy Journal and I agree with your message. I especially love how you created that background. What did you use? Dylusions sprays? It's just beautiful.

  15. I have to say Kay that this one really spoke to me today. I love that saying and it is so true. Especially as we get older and more stuck in our ruts ;) This is a beautiful piece of art and I love the the colours and the way you have put it together...
