Here we are at the last day of February!
I had planned to participate in the monthly Sketchbook Challenge (see button on the side of this blog) and the month whose theme was "Opposites" was nearly gone.
Yesterday, in church, I heard "Worry is the OPPOSITE of Faith".....that started my wheels turning....and this morning, I pulled out a sketchbook and set to work. Mostly this is cut and paste with lots of random journaling thoughts.

I have a page about how it feels to be wrapped in worries and cares....isolated. I used the brown daffodil bulb as the visual theme. Even though it is dry and brown, there is a lot of potential there.

Across the page, I have my "FAITH" page. Mostly cut and paste from my art and magazine photos. The missing quote is "I don't believe, I know" ---Carl Jung. It shows the bulb's future as it developes and blossoms.

My "art" journals are not always wonderful pleasing works of beauty, but since I am a visual thinker, this method, getting it out here on the page, calms and centers me and often gives me insight into what is going on!
Now, off to add this to the Flickr group for the challenge and tomorrow,March, we will have another theme to deal with!

Great concepts - I like the daffodil idea.

That is what I love about art and being able to express yourself.
You do it well dear Lila.
