Prompt 6ix #5

I completed this prompt last night.  I'm a bit late in the game as prompt #6 came out this morning but here's my interpretation. The prompts were Aquamarine, Peaceful, Stamped Circles, Cactus, Symbol and Blossom.

I mulled over how to put these words and color together.  The idea of the ocean came to me suddenly and then I knew that was how I was going to put it together.  I used aquamarine for the water, peaceful is what I feel when I am by the ocean and the quote really relates to how I feel.  I get a yearning or calling every year to be by the ocean.  We didn't make it there last summer but I really want to try to get to the ocean this summer.  Stamped circles from a toilet paper roll was used as the base of the coral.  I made an island to place the cactus and the blossom on top.  The symbol is of Aquarius which is my sign.  I really like how this all came together.  It's more of child-like carefree type of drawing and that's the mood I was in when I worked on it.  I just wanted to play and not worry about how realistic or pretty it needed to be.  I love my art journal for that reason.  And I'm not shy to share my not so beautiful work.  It's all a part of me.
