ICAD #6 and Nautical Challenge

Today's index card  for ICAD uses black and gray  gelli papers. As I searched for a word, the  word "art"  seemed to fit.

                                                    " ART on Black"

Inspiration Avenue

This week at Inspiration Avenue the theme was "Nautical". As I looked at quotes, several appealed to me. I had bought an old copy of "Robinson Crusoe" a while ago and found the ship in rough seas. I placed it on an acrylic abstract painting I had done and added an anchor and 2 of the quotes.

My favourite quote though, was one attributed to Mark Twain:

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. "
~ Mark Twain

Joy Card
One nautical  quote (from Hebrews 6:19)  seemed perfect for one of my joy cards.

Linking as well with:
