Only You Can

This was going to be another simple page about my son and his boyish habit of playing with sticks. However, I decided to switch out the title. Something that simple can lead your journaling down a different path. in this case, that path led me to describe some of my son's best traits. I also, inadvertently, was able to place a little message in the text. I misspelled strength which led me to use acrylic paint to cover the error. It looked a bit unbalanced. This led to adding paint in other areas of the circle, including over some of the other words. I chose to use the words " capture, your and strength." Which leads to the little message for my son...Only you can capture your strength.
