I'm so behind!!! I still need to show you this month's challenge over at Artastic, and it's a beauty!!!! I picked out the painting myself, and of course I had to choose one of our very own Belgian painter, born right here in Antwerp, Pieter Paulus Rubens.
The criteria this month are:
The LO must be about you.
Add wings somewhere on the LO.
Use a mirror image or use the same image of you multiple times.
For my submission I made a double LO, mostly because I had all these beautiful Graphic45 papers I so wanted to use!
I've spent the last month or so trying to sort out and scanning old pictures of my childhood, an absurd number of pictures which will keep me busy for many months to come!!! Anyway, looking at these pictures reminded me once again I'm not getting any younger and more and more I find myself thinking back to those younger days. Like my journaling says, which on both pages are lyrics of the song "It's five o'clock" by Demis Roussos, I feel that time has passed me by to quickly. When did I lose track?? Sometimes I look in the mirror and still expect a young girl to stare back at me ... gives me quite a scare sometimes when my actual reflection appears LOL. The black and white picture is me when I was 16 years old, the other pics were taken a few months ago. I thought the contrast in pics would be a good way to remind myself I'm as young/old as I feel, not as I look.
I've actually been working in my art journal as well, but I'll keep that for my next post. In the meantime, I hope you'll all find some time to join are Artastic challenge, I would love to see you participate!
