I am...


artwork 009, originally uploaded by laenglehardt.

This weeks Inspire Me Thursday's challange this week is to try to sum up yourself in one word. I'm not sure you really can just use one word but the closest I could come to is the word Changing. I hope to always be changing and growing. I guess growing is another word that I would apply to what my life is about. I hope that I am always growing but I know for sure that I'm changing.

This piece started with trying out some techniques for backgrounds I saw in Taking Flight using bits of paper with paint brayered on and then I applied some techniques from an online class by Pam Carriker for journaling. I'm trying my hand at the jornalistic style of collage and doodling. I think I like the results.

Thanks for looking.

I like the piece because of the composition.

It is always great to change, and art is one way to find change in your life.

This is cool! Is it the cover of the notebook or a page?

I agree. It's hard to use one word. My word is similar, "adventure" because it is about that movement, always ready for change or the new.

I like this journal piece.
