“Do not be a beggar dwelling on the past,
but a ship on farseeing water.”

This was so much fun to make, you guys have no idea!
I've started art journaling and this ones theme is like "Be your own goddess." I'll be making my own inspirational quotes, or you know, whatever the hell I want. It's very freeing. :heart:

Material used:

Large Moleskine sketchbook
Inkense pencils for the background
National Geographic magazine clip outs
Book page from"Kissing The Witch" By Emma Donoghue
Gesso
Matte Medium
White Gel pen
Liner pen

Oooh. So cool. I've tried making one of these and they are really time consuming and difficult to do correctly (probably screwed it up anyway XD) :)

I took an art aesthetics class where we had to make similar poetry/collage type pieces. It takes a lot of effort and creativity so I appreciate what you have done here. It's a really great piece and I love the quote.

You just have to look at the material you have to work with, then pick a theme. :) It's not all that hard for me. Anyway, thank you so much! ^^
