At Artists in Blogland, the challenge this month is to colour this quote:
"The sun is shining...That is the Magic. The flowers are growing--the roots are stirring. That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic--being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me--the Magic is in me. ...It's in every one of us."
For me, creativity is magic, words are magic, and our fantasy is an ever blooming garden full of an inexhaustible magic. I have tried to show this magic in my pages. The background has been made from another smear, wipe and try sheet - they always make the very best backgrounds. I just love the blue and purple shades and the flashes of yellow and orangecoming through like sunshine. I did a lot of stamping to put lots of patterns and texture into it. The quote is my variation of Chesterton's, 'There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds'. The images used are from Gecko Galz.
I couldn't resist using fairy dust Stickles on the wings.
Oops, forgot to rub out the pencil lines!
This was a fun challenge.
Have a good day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
