I think one of the reasons I like mixed media so much is that I can convey a message or thought without too much difficulty. I really enjoy trying to get stuff out of my head and releasing it somehow, in fact , I guess that is why we are all artists is because we feel the need to release what swirls in our brain! This card is for a swap with the theme of "Things with Wings".. The thing can be whatever you want, as long as it has wings. This was the first thing that came to my mind. I often wish my heart could just soar, with absolute freedom, and art is the only place I think that truly happens for me. Life stuff gets in the way a lot in the real world, responsibilities, commitments, guilt, to be specific. So when I pull out the papers and markers, and glue, I feel I can easily say what I want. I adore the quote on the card, but also find it very difficult to live by sometimes.......so I keep it stamped by my table to remind me often to keep at it. And with all my blog friends, it is easier to do.
