Hello again, here we are in the last week with just five letters to go. I hope you are managing to stay the course and can finish the journey with me.
Today's letter is V and the word is 'Vision'. The common meaning of the word is the ability to see, and as this is probably one of the most important of the five sense we should all be grateful for this. But what about those who have the vision to want to change the future; whether by some deed or invention. Leonardo Da Vinci, Charles Darwin, Ghandi and Martin Luther King are amongst those who had the imagination and determination to bring their vision to fruition.Great people with great ideas.
Sometimes we need vision when we are creating, and we also need the willpower to see it through; especially when it is not turning out how we planned. It is easier to throw it away than to work through the challenge, but trying to 'see' past the visual impression is often difficult.
Today's tag is yet another from my box of 'keeps'.
I used Potter's Clay Memento to stamp the border from Decadent Brocade. A variety of inks were used on the trees, which are from Woodland Design-a-Tree, whilst the blossoms are from Glade Design-a-Tree.
I die cut the leaves and ran them through an embossing folder before inking with Spiced Marmalade and Forest Moss.
The bottom of the tag was punched to give the elborate edge and the leaves were loosely attached with wet adhesive. I quite like the simplicity of this tag. Must use it.
Okay so the next time you find it difficult to turn your art vision into a finished article think of those who have suffered to bring their vision to the masses; and remember the many people who have turned their visions into reality. If they had thrown their ideas away where would we be. Possibly not reading this blog post for a start!
See you tomorrow
