21 Secrets - Words as your muse


I've been looking at another 21 Secrets workshop.  It's called "Words As Your Muse" and is being brought to us by Marah Johnson.  I know I'd have to gather words and phrases for this, so I started a month or so ago doing that.

Marah tells us for Lesson One:
"I challenge you to find a sentence... or a portion of, change the context and... create a statement of affirmation for yourself."
The phrase that I chose was "Open the door and step in!"


I'm not sure if I'm following the instructions exactly, but what I've been thinking about is creating a new and exciting home, where I'll be comfortable by myself.  And I'll be able to invite people to visit.  I forget what the original source of this phrase is from - probably Better Homes and Gardens magazine.


My art journaling page consists of a clipped magazine phrase, floral print paper, two kinds of stamps (postal and ink!) and mod podge.  I added some color with Distress Markers, Micron pens, and a lttle bit of watercolor crayons.  Bright and cheery, don't you think?
