Those ladies in the inspiration photo look so ethnic. That could be a tough page to take inspiration from. I love your take though. It makes a super art diary cover. and those ladies are quite beautiful too. I'm glad you are sharing with us at AJJ. This is a great entry. Thanks. Hope your new year is going well and everyone is healthy. Hugs-Erika

Very romantic, Tracey. That may not have been your intention, but I felt it when I saw the page. It's beautiful and absolutely perfect for Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey, too.

Tracey this is a stunningly beautiful and poignant way to transform your journal into something so positive and inviting. Your faces are gorgeous (a fabulous take on the prompt) and I think many of us can relate to your choice of phrase. Wishing you a peaceful, safe, positive and creative 2021 with thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique xxx

A fabulous transformation on your Diary cover Tracey and it's a great take on the inspirational sketch too. Love the quote, something we should all try to do.

I really love how you have transformed this cover, Tracey! A great quote indeed and your choice of colours is superb!
Thanks so much for your lovely visit on my blog and for leaving such kind and understanding words! I am sorry to hear you're struggling too with menopause and thyroid issues - never a good combination I've learned...but I have also learned that we are not alone...it's just that not a lot of people seem (or dare) to openly talk about it and therefor suffer and struggle on their own - so I appreciate your courage and comment even more, because I think it is important to show that one is not alone in this!

I wish for us all that 2021 will bring much more of the "better times" with lots of good vibes and energy, happy moments, good health and also serenity (for the less good times). Keep creating and inspiring - you do that so well!

I found your journal cover quite touching... perhaps it is the quote Tracey, but as always you have captured the mood of the photo inspiration perfectly. I love how you captured the light in the hair of those beautiful women. It really is a lovely cover.

Keep safe and well my friend. Hugs, Anne xx

Absolutely gorgeous as always Tracey. I always love how you colour hair, you get so much light and movement into it. I do hope that this year is better than last, at least there's hope of good things to come. Take care and have a very happy week, Sue xx

Wow that is AMAZING Tracey! You've hit the nail on the head with that quote which I think we all need to pay heed to in these uncertain times!!

Tracey, you have a knack with bringing these girls to life with their gorgeous, expressive eyes and shiny hair. The words you chose certainly are uplifting and encourage you to take the time to open your journal to express your thoughts. I'm so delighted you shared this journal cover with us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog! big hugs!

Tracey this is absolutely gorgeous! I've never seen this embossing folder before, but of course, I NEED it now lol. I think embossing folders are making a bit of a revival, which is good 'cos I've got loads that I've never used but just had to have. Your notebook is so elegant, and the flower has been beautifully coloured, but for me, the star is that fabulous charm. Thank you so much for your visit to my blog, and your very kind comments, I really do appreciate it. Take care and have a very happy week, Sue xx
