Mixed Media Monday....what a wonderful world.....






Hi Everyone....what a fun challenge this week on Mixed Media Monday....the theme is to choose a piece of music or song that means something to you, and make a piece of artwork around that. So I had to pick a song I start almost each and every day with.....

Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

It reminds me to be thankful each and every day....and reminds me to stop and pause every so often so I don't miss all the wonder around me....I hope you listen to it and I hope it also inspires you....

It also makes me think about my dreams and hopes .....and makes me believe that dreams can come true....if you truly believe and want something with your heart and soul.......

The song inspired this Hawaiian piece and reminds me of all the beautiful people that I have met that are so giving and sweet....bless you all!!!

Happy Monday!
Hugs
Diana

This is so lovely Diana..I'd totally love to be in a place like that right now..beach, sun, swimsuits...the sound of the ocean!!! Oh and palm tree's are my fav. Don't see them where I live, but I have in FL..
That is also a fav song of mine..I have it on my iPod!!!
Hope your weekend was a good one.
