Believe - Thurs. "art journal" challenge

Believe - Thurs. "art journal" challenge

I saw the stage musical version of Mary Poppins this week, and the song "Anything Can Happen" has been stuck in my head. I used certain lyrics as the inspiration for this page.

I wanted an ethereal feel to my layout, so I kept blending papers (with help from a template) until I was satisfied. I knew I wanted blues and touches of yellow to represent stars and the sky, which are represented in the full lyrics of the song.

Thanks Marilyn for gently "forcing" me to step out of my comfort zone and try an art journal style layout with this challenge!!

Quotes from "Mary Poppins: the Musical"

    It certainly is ethereal. Love your word 'believe' & all the stars popping.
    Fabulous, Tiza! I love your quote and the soft blues - the little stars are a nice touch!
    Lovely Theresa. I love the background and the quote. Great blending.
    This is a lovely art journal page. I enjoyed discovering all the bits of wording scattered and that nice big Believe looks good.
    tiza this is certainly different for you - but stunning!!! We all use templates for blending, no need to feel funny there -or perhaps it was a nod to your love of templates?? Isn't is great when you find something you love and can use it in a whole new way!?!?! This is a magical page - so dreamy and 'wishing upon a star-ry'... the colours are so perfect for the theme and the swirly soft "Believe" is superb.. it is probably my favourite part as it is evocative... I like the snippets of song lyrics and the butterflies scattered amongst to echo them... you have found a hidden talent today Theresa!!
    Stunning, such a great quote and I love the word Believe as your centre quotation. Wonderful dreamy colors and the stars and butterflies are truly lovely.
    This is so wonderful and dreamy. I really love all the blending you did to come up with the different intensities of blues for an ethereal look. Looking up to the night sky reveals so many possibilities and to believe is the best of them. Beautifully done!
    OOOHhhhhhhh.... Theresa, I woke up to seeing this on my little iPod screen and was SO in awe of what you created. I love the magical, dreamy and yes ethereal feel to your page - you painted that so wonderfully on your background! I really like how your sayings almost peek in and out of all that gorgeous color and love your soft, flowy title. This is such a beautiful layout and so full of feeling I just keep looking and looking! I really like all the pieces you used and the work that you did and I love that you used a template, too! (That really gave ME pause for thought!). Fantastic page and thanks for adding a piece of creative YOU to the Thursday Challenge! :)
    Marilyn expressed my thoughts to a T. This is one of those LOs that you can get lost in. Beautifully done.
    Great dreamy page! Love the colors and the blending and the smattering of yellow stars really makes this page pop!
