Gloria J Zucaro's "Journal Page 5, All of Them Make me Laugh!"

The latest ideas flowing in from "Fall Fearless and Fly" are about people who you admire, colors you love and people or things that make you laugh.  I copied the prompts below from Artists in Blogland site.  Hosted by the team of Jessica Sporn & Carolyn Dube

Headline Prompt:  Lifelong Fan:  What or who have you consistently valued or looked up to in your life?  What lessons have you learned from people you admire?
Color Prompt:  Your favorite color now or from childhood or both!
Quote Prompt: "Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator; but among those whom I love, I can:  all of them make me laugh."  W.H.Auden

This weeks guest host is Marcia Beckett who did a wonderful journal page to share with us.

Well, it is hard to look up to  young children and small animals when they are smaller than you are!  But they are the ones I love the best.  They are pure, and in awe of all the wonderful things in the world, they are closer to their "real" selves, not "tamed' yet.  They show all their emotions easily, and love fully.  All of them make me laugh or bring a smile to my face.  I love all the birds, squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks and smile when  I see them cavorting outside my windows.

This is the full page view.  I used Silks Acrylic Glaze paints, patterned tissue paper, Elmer's Glue, Twinkling H20's, glitter glue, cutouts from catalogues, a bird stamp, white gel marker, black Sakura ink pen.  Below I show the dimensional views with sparkly glitter from the right and left sides.

  1. Wonderful composition, I like those colors.

  2. That is amazing texture -- so much yummy goodness on one page! I love the glitter especially and those happy faces! You won my medieval leaves stencil! So email your snail mail address to jessicabethsporn (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll send it out to you!

  3. Now that looks like it was just plain fun to create!! Nice! :)

  4. There is definitely something that lifts the heart when watching little ones. I like the dimensionality on this page. And great colours!

  5. Glorious colours,really yummy, and you are so right about children, they are pure and I just love the wonder they have for life.

  6. Bellissimo lavoro espressivo e comunicativo!

  7. Such wonderful texture and vibrant colors! The sparkle on this is just fabulous - and that is only in the photos (which I know is hard to capture the richness of Silks) so in person it must shimmer and shine! So glad you shared this with Fall Fearless and Fly!

  8. When we were sprinting in my exercise class recently, one of my friends said, when I run that fast, I feel like a kid again. And it's so true - kids exhibit such freedom! Happy FFF!

  9. The texture is absolutely gorgeous, and the snippet of the quote really fits with the rest of your page. Lovely x

  10. wonderful page. love the textures and colours. x
