Celebrate the Journey

Hi my friends,

Today is the birthday of  the Vintage Journey Challenge Blog and the theme was chosen by our lovely hostess, Brenda Brown, she is asking us to Celebrate the Journey that we have been traveling on.  Over the years we have celebrated many themes and artists and we love seeing what our members create.   Today I am celebrating my personal journey into the world of video.  I have made a few videos and created my YouTube Channel, so far I'm ok with them but see that I have much to learn.  I'm making it my artistic journey this year to make more videos and hopefully reach more viewers.

My card for this challenge depicts the idea of breaking free from our fears and the things that make us doubt ourselves.

I've used some great dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs and a phrase that I found in my stash that sums up the theme beautifully.  The wings, woodgrain paper and flower  I'm sure you will recognize from the Tim Holtz collection at Idea-ology.

Don't forget to fly,

  1. S@ndy what a delightful card and meaning behind it, the whole idea of celebrating part of jour artistic journey and personal development is exactly what AVJ has been about. We all experience those doubts and fears and need to remind ourselves often that it’s the journey that is important, we need to flex those wings and fly and yes the world is a beautiful place. Thank you for sharing your talent with us and our readers at a vintage journey, for your continuing support and friendship as part of this amazing team and continue to fly. Huge hugs xxx
