Bridge or stepping stones?

Have you ever added an element to your page and it's not what you expected? There was a yellow arc through the piece of gelli-print I'd attached at the top right that I wanted to add a little green to. I have a concentric fractured circles stencil that fit nicely.

The addition of green gave me a bridge.

Or was it stepping stones?

Which set me thinking - there's more than one way to cross a stream. The bridge and the stepping stones will both get you across. One is not better than the other. They are just different.

Maybe if something isn't working, we need to look at it from another angle. Try a different way that will still get you where you want to go.

Sharing with Paint Party Friday. Go check out all the colourful loveliness produced this week.


  1. Lovely piece Tracy, and great that you made the stepping stones/bridge - we always need to find our way. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. I love how your mind works when you're 'arting' Tracy - you follows the stones/bridge so beautifully.

  3. Thinking outside of the box certainly can put a different slant on things Tracy.
    I love the way your artwork evolved and you went along with it. It has been said it's more about the journey than the destination... but I think you won on both scores here!
    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy PPF to you

  4. great interpretation of your painted page!

  5. I agree...I have done that my whole life...when one way didn't work I tried a new way! Realizing there are several different means to an end is half the battle!! Wonderful painting and post! Loved this metaphor!

    Hugs Giggles

  6. Hi Tracy! I agree about looking at things in different ways and I like your analogy about the river. Great paintings too! Have a happy PPF and a great week ahead. Hugs, Rasz

  7. Great thoughts - and so true! Beautiful piece.

  8. So bright and pretty! And a very nice outlook - stepping stones or bridge, there is often more than one way to cross. :)
