Words Of Me Project

I haven't worked on my art journal in a while... so I decided to join in on the fun over at "Words of Me Project"...  Six Words in six weeks. Just what I am needing, something to keep me on task! The first word of the six week challenge is "courage."

"Have the courage to scream! Yes. To SCREAM. Have the courage to voice your convictions... even if you have to scream. Be courageous enough to let down your inhibitions and raise your hands and scream as you go on lifes roller coaster! Don't be passive, have the courage to be you, no apologies. Have the courage to scream :-)

These two journal pages were created on top of a crackled patina....
 The metallic colors of green and pearl gray were added in a way to create a burst from the word "courage." Looks much better in person...
 
 I used rubber stamps and paint to create the rest.....

The next word challenge is "Embrace"...
 Very thought provoking subjects..... I like it!
