Mixed Media Monday - "Inspirational Words"


Hi Everyone....This week's theme on MMM...is Inspirational Words....and I wanted to create something as inspired by one of my favorite words..."Dream".....
All my life I grew up believing that anything is possible if you truly believe...and my parents always taught me this....it was this phrase that made me Dream all the time as a child....I wanted to be so many things but mostly in my heart of hearts I wanted to create and be an artist....I always felt that art would be a way to leave a foot print in the world...that even when I am gone people and children will know that I was here....and that dream grew in my heart each and every day till I was lucky enough to finally take the leap of faith and follow my heart....
I think we all need to take chances in life ....always ones we are comfortable with...but let me tell you the day you take that leap of faith on something you always dreamed of......may be the day you get to live your DREAMS!!!
Hugs
Diana
