Love more … Fear less

challenged by some of my colorful monoprint journal pages

and inspired again by this Swedish proverb:

“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more, Love more, and all good things will be yours.”

I decided to get busy with my white water based Sharpie Poster Pen …

my first thought was that green might bring everything together … like it does in nature … but since I did not have a fine tip marker in green …

I got busy with my white pen …

speaking of colorful … have you seen these clever and creative paint commercials … visit here and here for a real treat …both are short and sweet

  11. wonderful with the white pen….I seem to always fixate on using a black or sepia ink……..thanks for reminding me there are other colors out there:)
    Those commercials with the paint chips…wow, wonder what ad agency genius thought those up…………nothing like burning the midnight oil….like some of us have to do here considering we are six whole hours ahead of you:) Maybe I should get a job at an agency instead of at a publishers…..
