Fall Fearless and Fly

Hmmm....me participating in an art challenge. Me - the 'I'm not an artist  person.' Over at Artists In Blogland an art challenge (Fall Fearless and Fly) is currently underway. The current challenge has three prompts.
Headline Prompt: Inventing the Future: Where do you want to be 5, 10, 15 years from now. What's holding you back? What's propelling you forward? What do you need to do or stop doing to create your future?
Color Prompt: Warm colors (reds, oranges, pinks, yellows)
Quote Prompt: "The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time." Abraham Lincoln
You could use one or all three.  Since I was already working on something that fit the color prompt  I'm jumping in although not quite fearless about it. I have looked at some of the work by other participants and they have loads of talent. What I consider real artist talent. In a way the headline prompt which asks 'what's holding you back' fits my reluctance to share my 'art'.  Having begun this art journal in the past two weeks I'm not sure I'm ready to share it. It still has a scrapbook look to it that I want to get away from; but for now I'm creating and that's more important to me.
This two page spread centers around the making of an ATC card (see closeup below). I've seen many ATC's with lots of detail on such a small canvas. I kept this one simple and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I used a clear protective sleeve pocket to put the card in. I wanted to be able to take it out of the journal if I wanted to.
(Remember clicking the images will make them bigger and better.)

You did a great job with these pages-the composition is wonderful! Stay fearless and keep sharing your art and exploring. The more you create the more you will find a comfortable style that is just you. See you for the next challenge! :)
