Root-24- 29 and Good bye August and Day-30

An update: I have finally completed 30 Days of the Journal Project. Here is Day:30. Next month see you all with a new project.
                         "Keep a green tree in your hand and perhaps a singing bird will come."
The last week of holidays are here. So is August bidding us good bye. Summer was the quickest month and I already miss the long days. 

I have also come to an end with Lisa Sonora Beam's online class, Root: 30 Day Journal Project. I finished 29 days and though this is my second time doing the same course I still had a blast. The last prompt will be send tomorrow and I'm planning to create the page and add to this post.
 Day-25 I did a page using acrylics and spray paints. I did the girl's outline with a stabilo pencil.

 Day-26 A page created on deli paper and I love the soft feel of it. I'm sure I'll be doing more of such pages.

 Day-27 I had this background page for a while and never liked it. But now after adding these two 'ladies' I'm so happy that I didn't throw it away.
Day-28 "Have no fear of perfection... you'll never reach it." -Salvador Dali. I love all quotes that remind me about how useless it is to go after perfection.
Day-29 This is for today's quote. "There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it is going to be a butterfly." 
R. Buckminster Fuller

Finally, a watercolor sketch of a leaf that I collected while we were at a botanical park.
