And now for something completely different (thank you, Monty Python. lol)

This was a fun thing I did yesterday, for the Affirmation Monday project created by the wonder-duo of Angi and Silas from Duirwaigh Gallery. [link] I have never really incorporated text into my artwork, so it was fun thinking of my own inspirational words, and fitting them into a picture.

I decided to go with a more 'collage' type of feel for this. I had to really fight my blending urges, and let the picture almost appear 3D. In the end, I really enjoy how it turned out! Almost like a journal page, or something like that.

I hope you like it too! :hug:

EDIT: OH! I almost forgot - the link to describe what 'by-the-wind sailors' are! :D
[link]
In short, they are a small type of jellyfish which float on the surface of the water, and have little sails on the top which help catch the sea breezes and move them along.
