What is it?

I decided to participate in the Art-Life Journaling Challenge over at Scrap Arts Studio. Here is what the challenge entailed:

"What is holding you back? What is stopping you? What are you afraid of? What is keeping you from your potential? WHAT?!?"
Start with a plain background… neutral color would be good because that will allow you to be free to create as you grow this page.  Put your journaling on the page.  Now we are going to cover it all up… or partially at least.  Grab some brushes and cover up the text on your page.  Use gesso or colors that move you.  As you do this, know in your mind that you are putting away all these things that are stopping you from moving forward.  You are taking away their power to stop you.
Here is the page I created for this challenge:
I really enjoyed working on this page. I must say that the process of writing my journaling about what is holding me back was a good process for me. It was very therapeutic and freeing to then cover up that negative journaling with statements that are positive. A good process.
