Colors and Keys Mixed Media Collage Welsh

Obedience is the mother of success, and success the parent of salvation; Aeschylus.

Parents can only give good advice or put them (children) on their right paths, but the final forming of a person lies in their own hands;  Anne Frank.



and finally,  a third quote which suited my theme is,

One can be the master of what one does, but never of what one feels;  Gustave Flaubert.

Terrie said...

I collect quotes too and I'm not familiar with these so will add to my inspiration list. What a cool idea for a collage - thought provoking but artistic and colorful.

I'm impressed with these quotes you have used to add even greater credence to your incredible collage. This is simply STUNNING! Super IA challenge entry.

I LOVE your collage on "keys"-the way you collaged all those rules and the key around the "choice" or keyhole......wonderful stuff and your quotes are great too!

Great submission! I love the colour bursts and the glimpse of a hidden landscape through the keyhole.
