New Light and New Projects

"I have found you have got to look back at the old things and see them in a new light" John Coltrane

Getting back to creative projects again. . . .
May’s prompt for One Little Word was easy for me, quotes and positive affirmations keep popping up for me each month as a way of keeping the focus. There are so many words that come our way each day, what information you value and keep makes a big difference, the hard part is filtering.  A fold out page holds the journaling about my parents love of words and language that I experience in loving quotes.   The photos are from a recent trip to the Crystal Castle where we enjoyed an avenue of bamboo and a very quiet room that surprised us with banners full of beautiful words, worth remembering.  Thanks to the lovely folks at Maya Road for the cute bird trims.
Art journal pages using Luminarte Radiant Rain and Silks paints over white gel pen masking.
New to do lists were calling out for a pretty new diary, many thanks to the lovely Roadies from Maya Road for their friendship and support over the last few months. Their collection of stamps is pretty and amazing.
Took a quick break to catch up with Amy Tangerine on her tour down under and had lots of fun making new friends and fellow fans of project life. Amy was super generous with her time and take home goodies of embellishments.
And a tutorial on the Project Life theme using Crate Paper  and Maya Road.

Your heart wings on the last page is incredible, Mandy!
I also love your use of a dictionary page for the background of quotes. Great idea!
Sometimes loved ones say such wonderful words of wisdom and I wish I had always written the down.
It's great you are doing this.
Wishing you a lovely new week.

Ps. I used pic monkey to make the collages. It was easy and fun! I think you make them right on their website and then save them to your computer.

LOVE the mix here, Mandy! And that quote is wonderful... Lately I've made a return to quilting after some years away from that art, and really enjoying playing with fibers more. Looking back can be good, and inspiring! :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
