I confess that I am a person of order and structure. I have always thought that I would have thrived in the military with its rules, expectations and order. I try to break from the comfort of this at times and do unexpected things and be adventurous, but at times I find that I am easily frustrated when things break from the norm or do not go as planned. I stopped to really consider this after I heard a quote this weekend while watching College Game Day on ESPN. I didn't catch the guy's name, but the commentators were talking about all the upsets so far this year in college football. The guy said, "If everything always went as planned, we'd all die of boredom." Well said!
This page was inspired by a quote that I read recently: "Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others." ~Unknown
Journal Page Elements: Acrylics, stencils, glaze, black pen, spray paint, wallpaper, rub-ons, rubber stamps and collage element from Teesha Moore.
Have a blessed day!

Hello! I've been spending a lot of time in the studio lately. Now that it is more functional and I have my favorite supplies in reach, I actually want to work in there. I used to open the door and look at the mess and just turn around. One of my goals for this year is to schedule time to work and not just wait for moments of inspiration and so far I can tell that I am more productive.
For this journal page, I went back to my roots and used the darker colors, or jewel tones.
Have a blessed day!
