Mixed Media Layout (More Than Words - January)

Hello and Happy New Year!!

Here I am with my first work for More Than Words challenge blog. I'm very excited and thankful to be part of this wonderful team. This month word inspiration is GOALS and creative challenge is JOURNALING, so I hope you feel inspired and take part. You'll find all the information here: January Challenge.

Hola y Feliz Año Nuevo!!

Aquí esto con mi primer trabajo para el blog de retos More Than Words. Estoy muy contenta y agradecida de formar parte de este maravilloso equipo. Este mes la palabra de inspiración es GOALS (metas) y el reto creativo es JOURNALING (escribir como en un diario), así que espero que te sientas inspirado y participes. Encontrarás toda la información aquí: reto de enero

So I just wanted to create a piece that summarizes my big goals and also my small ones, cause they're all important. I used Bo Bunny papers and Lindy's Magicals, keeping the composition quite simple cause I wanted the symbolic elements (such as the road photo, the thread, the stones and the glitter) and the journaling to be the protagonists.

Así que quería crear una pieza que resumiera mis metas grandes y también las pequeñas, pues todas son importantes. He usado papeles de Bo Bunny y Magicals de Lindy's, manteniendo la composición bastante sencilla porque quería que los elementos simbólicos (como la foto de la carretera, el hilo, las piedrecitas y la purpurina) y el escrito fueran los protagonistas.

The inspiration word GOALS is present in the words I've written, cause the text is actually about the things I want to do this year. And the creative challenge (JOURNALING) are the words themselves. To me handwriting it's very important, cause it helps to keep the ideas strongly present in my mind.

La palabra de inspiración "metas" (goals) está presente en las palabras que he escrito, pues el texto en en realidad sobre las cosas que quiero hacer este año. Y el reto creativo (escribir como en un diario) son las palabras mismas. Para mí escribir a mano es muy importante, pues ayuda a mantener las ideas fuertemente presentes en mi mente.

This is the text I've written in the layout and it's dedicated to the person you can see with me in the photo, my best friend Adi.

There are some magical moments in life when you meet a soulmate, a real soul sister, that person you can communicate with the eyes… and laugh at everything and anything, spend all the night talking and share all your fears and you dreams. 

I can’t stop thinking of how lucky I’ve been finding you in this vast Universe and now I know this connection is a gift. All the plans we’ve made, all the places we want to go, all the things we want to do… this road is taking us there. It will take us anywhere. And we will share the best breakfast in Barcelona, we will travel across India and we will count all the stars in Iceland. We will do anything we want, cause we build the road. No matter how far we are… distance is just a measure that has nothing to do with soul connection.

My goal this year is to make to the most of every single moment. My aim is to keep myself present, to share more with the ones I love and enjoy the little things of live. I want to wake up early and watch the sun rising, feel the fresh air freezing my nose and hear the toads signing in the pond. My plan is to grow and take care of my soul. My purpose is to be conscious of how fortunate I am cause I have a roof above my head, food on my plate, a lover and friends to share with. 

My goal this year is to make my dreams come true. The small ones. The big ones. 
Sing. Laugh. Travel. Discover. Create. Feel. Trust. Listen. Breathe. Imagine. Learn. Thank. Celebrate. Share. Love. Dream. Do something awesome every day. LIVE.
