Ready for Anything

Just like last year the Wanderlust 2017 set of classes also has a section for a Wanderlust Book where we get a prompt every other week and we can do with it what we want. I will be working in Finnabair's Mixed Media journal (with rings) that is a bit larger than the journal I used last year. It's 7.1/4" x 9.1/2".  This journal has both white and craft pages and I'll use whichever set I feel like but for this first spread I have simply used the first page.
The first prompt was: I am ready for......, and as you can see above I went with anything, even though I'm fully aware of the fact that it's not true. Sometimes you have to proclaim your courage to yourself before you're truly feeling it.
As I had such a great time with MaryBeth Shaw's lesson on Creative Jumpstart 2017 (see the New Doors spread here) I decided to use it again to make this page, hence no instructions here. I must mention though that it involves Distress Markers. I had a few but felt an urgent need for more so I'm very stocked up at the moment.
I collaged with a wide variety of papers, some from magazines and some wrapping paper, and used all the stencils from the January 2017 Stencilgirl Club.
I also used fluorescent acrylic ink as well as a mica spray but although you can see the former, the sparkle of the latter is lost in the pictures.

This is so good Frieda! And you have prompted me to look for the prompt! I have not dived into anything but the first lesson and so have not found that yet. Thank you, I will look!
P.s. Loved your Forest walk with Flora . . . the pups and I took a Florida forest walk yesterday and although it is colder here than typical, it's definitely not as cold as your walk! Yours looks very pretty & invigorating. I will take the photos of our walk out of my camera and share them soon. :)
