Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #26


The prompt for this week is hopes and fears. 


I'm really pleased with the background in this. I just pasted down a few bits and pieces, gessoed, then scraped some acrylics - both liquid and thick - until it felt done. 


After that a bit of black stamping was needed. I knew the words 'hope' and 'fear' would be next and I wanted them writ large. They were a little lost so an added shadow dragged them out of the background. 


Then came the thinking part. What did the prompt bring up? 
I thought about the shadow cast by fear in contrast with the light of hope. I don't want to be chained in the shadow of fear, unable to move forward, living in the dark.


I want to move towards that light at the end of the tunnel, the flame of hope. 


I choose to live in the light.

  3. I love this page and the way you've got the HOPE dropping down the page. Such a contrast to think of fear and hope, shadow and light. In Jesus we can all live in the Light of Hope. Thanks for sharing.
