Day 4 Smeared and Smudged art journal challenge- growth

Day 4 of smeared and smudge challenge was to use the focus on growth. So here is my rendition for my art journal. I used tattered angels glimmer screen of tree and glimmer mists. I have old oak trees and other trees in my yard. Some trees over two hundred years old. They symbolize growth and life to me.
I punched some flowers from scraps and stickled the centers. I love glitter! I added some wood cat pieces by studio calico then painted them black with glitter glam. I stamped some acorns using a Stampendous stamp.
You can check out the challenge at http://moresmearedink.blogspot.com/
I think as we get older we learn not to be afraid of who we are. To share ourselves with others creates beauty in life. Beauty does blossom from within.
