Creativity Queue Challenge Day -3

For today's challenge I did an Art Journal page.

I wanted to try a page in gold. I'd bought Tulips fabric paint a couple of months ago but never got around to paint on fabric. Another unfinished project was to make paper flowers. Yesterday night,I managed to do three different ones.

The flower on my Art Journal page is done using cupcake liners and the middle portion is done using a piece of ribbon.
The quote on the branch states: "If only you try, you can realize how much potential is there in your self."

On the lower branch is written, 'Try, try, try again.' This is a mantra that I introduced to my oldest son a couple of years ago(guess, when he was 3). He used to whine whenever things went wrong while he played. I repeated these words again and again and also personally tried to practice it in front of him. They say we're the best models for our kids.

Last week, he was trying a new puzzle and couldn't complete it. He was frustrated and upset but what made me so happy was when he told me, "It's ok Mama, try, try and try again right, and that's what I'm going to do" (Boy! I wish he had this kind of attitude for everything) After 2 days of sitting with it he managed to complete it -:)

Here is my page:

These are the other two flowers that I made: The first one out of cardstock and the second one using crepe paper. Aren't they pretty? I should make more and do something creative with them. There, that's my next 'to do' project.

Thank you
