When something you love so much shows up in your art...

It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I am obsessed with journaling - it is pretty much all I do lately. The hardest part for me, however, is getting out of my head. I am a perfectionist. Really. It is not easy to overcome that, it is even a bit counterintuitive when it comes to journaling. After all, everything in journaling is..in my eyes...the most organized mess ever. Maybe that is why I am so attracted to it.

It took me awhile, but finally got the courage to make an art page I have been waiting to make - a classic scene from my all-time favorite movie. My reservations about making it? That I would ruin the image and it will discourage me from continuing to make more pages. My encouragements? My passion for journaling and my love for the movie. So... here it is... I would say it turned out pretty darn awesome. The moral of the story? Put your heart on the pages, and it will show...
