1 Step

So I'm back with another page for Art Journal Journey. The theme this month is Journeys.
I decided to take this pretty famous quote and make a slightly different kind of page for it. I don't think Lao Tzu in the 6th century BC (or to some historians the 4th or 5th century BC) meant this to be about a girl in high heels out shopping.
I wonder over my whole life if I've walked a thousand miles while shopping?
But why anyone would shop till they dropped in heels is beyond me? Ha-ha.
So I sketched and painted everything except the store window manikin girl She's cut out of an old Italian fashion magazine I have.
I am also linking this page to Moo Mania and More. A new challenge starts today and the theme is Quotes.
I started a new journal the other day. This journal is one that is going to be about my spring and summer "journeys". I thought this page would  make a great title page.
Keeping it short today.
But I don't want to forget to say thanks for dropping by to visit.

Love your page, and it would be great to journey back in time and see Lao Tzu's reaction to the high heeled, leggy girl in your painting! Thanks for another wonderful piece for AJJ, Hugs, Valerie

I am laughing, because I considered that quote as part of my proverbs/sayings swap pages I'm working on now. But I didn't have the necessary artwork to make it work. YOU did, though, and I love this. If only I could draw as well as you! You have created a page even Lao Tzu would approve of.

Rains and bad weather have receded here, but it was incredibly cold until yesterday when the sun came out in full force and heated things up even warmer than I care for. Hope your good weather sticks around awhile.

This page is cool.. super! I thought about the same quote for a spread yesterday, but then changed my mind and took another quote - but maybe I will do at least one page this month to this quote..who knows? Always exciting to start a new journal!
You have so many ideas to the theme - I am looking forward to your next realisations Erika.
Half time of my brother-caring-week behind me...
I am just nervous to start journaling again!!
