This quote by Alice Morse Earle has always resonated with me and I thought it appropriate for the beginning of 2017.
"The clock is running. Make the most of today.
Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the present"
The piece began with a tissue rainbow (for "Try it On Tuesday"),
and I added old family photos that tell my story along the centre. (for "Art Journal Journey")
and finally added stencils of hearts and a dandelion. (for Mixed Media Monthgly Challenge")
Now I have a constant reminder to live each day fully and not worry about past or future.
Carpe Diem - seize the day!
Try it on Tuesday
And of course, I have to link with WOYWW - the weekly challenge hosted by Julia Dunnit at "Stamping Ground" - where we are encouraged to share what we are working on and the state of our work spaces.
Here's my art table downstairs right after I finished with the stencils and had yet to fully clean up:
what it looked like from the door
and from in front
