'Taking the Leap'

 Week-3 of February challenge at the DLP Unplanner was "Love Without Hesitation" and"Taking the Leap" Loved both the phrases. One of my words for 2016 is "Grow" I could relate my word with this month's challenge. This year has started off with so many new adventures for me. I'm grateful for all the new experiences.  Each one has also been a learning curve for me. I trusted the Almighty and in my strengths and 'took the leap' I'm glad that I did...
The background is in watercolor. I doodled the flowers with my black micron.Added couple of my watercolored feathers , the polka dotted washing tape is from Ikea. I got 4 rolls for 50cents:-) Another one is the one with the word 'Love'on it. Finally I completed the page with the silhouette and the phrase.

The PAC challenge was to add something related to Gratitude. Again a favorite theme of mine. On my watercolored card I added the butterfly and jar stamps. All my Gratitude notes are inside the jar:-)

 Prompt-7 for the Gratitude 52 Weeks Challenge was Music. I drew my son's violin on a lightly washed background.

Waiting for Spring here:-) How about you all? I'm linking my page to PPF and Art Journal Journey where the challenge is to create something related to music.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
