art journal - growing up

We drove down to Montana yesterday for some "back to fall" shopping (I dont like to use that nasty "s" word) and had much success! I like exploring all the stores we dont have here in Canada and the prices are alot better on lots of things. it was a great time :)
So about the project: I have another art journal page to share with you tonight! I did some stamping and collaging in the background of this page. I used alot of numbers on it to symbolize growing up and growing older. This is something I have been thinking alot about lately because I am going into my last year of school and I need to decide what to do with my life. It is a scary thing and this art definately helps a little...
to make this flowerish type thing I used part of a coffee filter. I painted it with watercolour paints and a bit of ink. I tried to capture a childish feel with the primary colours on the page.

I love this quote and I feel like it really relats to my thoughts right now. It is so true, children are always creating beautiful things and as we grow older we become self concious about our art. Maybe we dont share it as much or dont take the same pride in it and lots of people are just not motivated to create anymore. I am so glad I found scrapbooking when I did :)
