Not a Moment Too Soon

I'm usually fairly critical of my own work (aren't we all?) but this is one of those journal pages that came together in a way that made even my normally chatty inner critic fall silent. Love when that happens! The figure is from a painting called Sapphires (c. 1877) by Albert Joseph Moore. I, of course, added the swallowtail wings and the lotus, which was clipped from the cover of a Coldwater Creek catalog. The journaling drifting around the woman's figure reads: "...not a moment too soon I stop to breathe, to take in the sights, to appreciate the world, glorious both above my head and beneath my feet...not a moment too soon I pause living to enjoy life, to discover wonders..."

While this piece of art is lovely, it is your journaling that plays a gentle chord with me.

Both your writing and your visuals are a pleasure for the eyes and soul.They make me wonder will I ever start the journal I have been longing to create for sooo long?
