Ticket to ride...................




Wow, this was a fun project. Part of my "processing" project, actually. In the past 10 months I have been on a journey of sorts. Through this journey I have become keenly aware of certain words that have repeatedly come up and have caught my focus. I have gone from truth to meaning, etc. Most recently the word dream has been in my thoughts. This project has come to represent my realization that truly, I have a ticket to ride................I have this one life, my ticket and I'm gonna ride it!!! This is an inspirational piece that I am going to frame and keep close to remind me to ride...........



As for the challenges this week that have inspired me with their themes:

Simon Says Stamp and Show: Layers (I believe I have six layers not including the base.)



Supplies:

**Distress Inks: Black Soot, Tea Dye and blender tool by Ranger
**Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Arglye
**Sizzix Alterations by Tim Holtz die: On the Edge Ornate
**Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper Stacks
**Amusement Park charms by Karen Foster

Your work is beautiful, I think we all forget to stop stressing about the future and live for the moment, I find it hard to just RIDE, you have obviously had a rough journey these past months and I love the way you express your self in your art, something I should try, we spend too much time worrying about what we are going to do and before we know it the moment has passed, keep up the fabulous work

Hi Deanne, the papers used in my mini halloween album are Graphics 45 - Halloween in Wonderland, from my local craft shop, the stamp attic, I'm not sure if they deliver to US, if not Im glad to get you some and send to you.
