I Spy!

May Journal Prompt
(Click on a sticker to see the details!)

When this month's journal prompt was announced in my art group: "Name something you would do if you weren't afraid to do it.", I knew immediately what I wanted to journal. Believe it or not, I've always been fascinated with the CIA, FBI and Scotland Yard. Old black and white movies about spies, as well as good novels, never cease to intrigue and fascinate me.


Everyone in my circle of family and friends knows that I'd make a terrible spy. It's just a shame that I don't have nerves of steel, a mind that doesn't freeze under pressure and a poker face that wouldn't give me away!

May your day be filled with laughter!

A girl can dream Terri......and it makes a wonderful journal page. Stay happy, Annette x

Oh my gosh. I'm with you. I'm a terrible liar. Terrible. And I have no poker face - at all. Not even a little. I used to dream of being a spy with Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin who coincidentally is still cute in his older age on NCIS...

I love the scrabble tiles and they way you gave her shifty (but nice) eyes ..... I think, for me, I would choose scuba diver :)

Fun prompt :)

Trudi Sissons said...

Ewwwww.....scary spy...this is great to read and also very funny! I've never ever thought of being a spy - but you've given me lots to day dream about! Thanks for this true confession Terri and the beautiful art that accompanied it!!

Marilyn Rock said...

Oooh, me too, or maybe it's just all those mysteries I have read, but I enjoy that problem solving. Your family is probably right, you are far too cheery to be a serious spy....xox Corrine

Lynn said...

Ahhhhh now this is something I didn't know about you Terri, and I have to agree, it's not for you, you giggle too much LOL
Beautiful work of art though, we are allowed to dream :)

Marit said...

My morning is certainly filled with laughter seeing this art journal page! Wonderful!!! Funny and marvelous! BTW: I would sit next to you in the 'observation car', wearing a hat and holding a newspaper with peeping holes... if I weren't afraid of being caught too ;)

Love this! One of my parents neighbors in the DC area turned out to be a spy. Everyone was so amazed. I remember all the government people and their cars all around the house. I often wondered who would buy the house once they were convicted and gone. I could be a private eye, but never a spy...beautiful rendering as always!

Kathy said...

I posted a comment but it must've gotten lost. I'd be a spy with you! I've wanted to be a spy since Man From U.N.C.L.E. with Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. Remember them, wink, wink, nudge, nudge... :o)

Yup. I'd be a spy. Definitely.

Cheers,
Kathy
