good advice

Now the only thing I need to do is listen to it LOL. I guess art journalling can be very therapeutic and writing these quotes might just be helpful.
Don't worry no horrible things happening  here..........

When I saw the new alpha dictionary challenge at Craft Barn Blog was about the letter O, I decided to choose the word  Opportunity and made this AJ page, which turned out to be about the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try new things and the "fear" of not being good enough. I think these quotes say it all; don't listen to your fears cause if you don't try you will never know.  Just believe in yourself.

These quotes made sense so I guess it's working  :-)

The image is a Rick St. Dennis MFA image, it was originally drawn for me to use at the Tooth and Claw challenge in the DTT.  I ended up making another project and did not use this one. I loved the image though and was just waiting for the right opportunity to use it . I thought it would be perfect for this page. You won't find it in Rick's etsy, but there are lots of images you will  like in there.
and here the piece of the dictionary

The background is made using my Gelli plate, the paint colours used are:
