"...who don't believe in sensible rules and don't believe what sensible people say. Because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes, keep building up impossible hopes, impossible things are happening every day!" Rodgers and Hammerstein
Since I've been reading about words for the year on some of my faavorite blogs, I've decided that "possibility" is going it as my word for this year. Several challenges inspired this journal page: Crazy Amigos' "Brand New Start" challenge, One Powerful Hour's "Inspirational Word" challenge,Wednesday Stamper's "When I Grow Up challenge, and Illustration Friday's word "Confined" sent me running in the opposite direction. This journal page started with a background from the dictionary, the page with "possibility" on it, although I don't know if you can even see that any more. Then, I added a handpainted image from a Tim Burton-inspired fashion spread I cut out of Harper's Bazar, acrylic paint, handcolored scrapbook paper, and flourishes with a rubber stamp. Now that I think of it, she looks a bit like a fairy godmother, which is exactly what I'd like to be wne I grow up.
"Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today." Mark Twain. This is what I believe. This is what my life as a wife, a mother, a teacher, a friend, and an artist have taught me.
