Super Powers

Journal Page
(Click to see the details!)

Initially, I had great difficulty creating a concept for my art group's June journal prompt of "If you could have a super power, what would it be?" What a v-e-r-y interesting prompt! 


To be honest, I've never really given much thought about possessing a super power. But the more time I spent pondering the huge 'menu' of various choices, the more I realized that I couldn't choose just one! There you have it - I suppose that I'm a bit greedy when it comes to super powers - maybe that's why I have none!!!

May your day be filled with wonderful choices!

omg my first thoughts here were the same as Lynn´s.....you made me laugh...really you have so much humor in your posts....thanks for making me smile:)

Astrid Maclean said...

Oh Terri, what can I say, I just laughed out loud, oh how I wished to have any and all of those powers!

By the way, for me you have loads of super powers: Sharing love, bringing happiness to many, creating the most wonderful art, and I have a strong suspicion being the most well organised housewife, spouse , mother and grandmother. Hey, if those are not super powers, then what are???

Have a wonderful day!

I think I would like to live both on land and in water. I would like to blink and be somewhere else sometimes. Like a sunset in Bali or a waterfall in Wales. Thanks for showing us your amazing art and this prompt! Blessings to brilliant you!

Diane said...

Oh yes, I'll take all of the them, but if I had to choose one, it would definitely be the ability to stop time--wouldn't that be great!!!

roc said...

Janet Ghio said...

Love this page! but I'm with you, I can't choose just one!! (Altho right now, i would settle for perfect vision!!)

Janine said...

Oh that is awesome.
And a hard choice. Flying is great. I could do that when I was a child (at least in my dreams) It was wonderful. But then I grew up and couldn´t fly nymore.
Yes, I think I take menue one.
Flying is great
Have a great day superwoman

Marit said...

I can't choose just one either... there are some I don't care about (do you really want to read the minds of other people? I don't want to know what's inside their heads to be honest...) but there are others... ohmy... wish I could fly and live forever and, and... You got me thinking. And I LOVE your artpiece!

You Terri my dear posses wondrous powers even if you aren't aware of them everyone who you have touched in this life sure is............

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love the idea that "super powers" come on a menu. Makes sense to me that you would want more than one. Love the accents, too, including your lovely woman.

Sharon said...

I am giggling. I can't pick just one...I must have them all!! I do believe you are a super guru, for sure. Have a great weekend. I shall be reading a new juicy novel and eating pistachio nuts as they are forecasting more rain. Hugs, Sharon

Outstanding Stranger said...

You do have super powers Teri...The power to make everyone feel special!! Your art is always fun and lively just like you! Hugs,Diane

Rosie said...

What fun Terri! I'd love xray vision if I lived at a muscle-beach - lol!! And the ability to pick a winning line would come in handy now and again! Great art as always! Have a lovely weekend! =)

Lynette (NZ) said...

Love this - I wish I had your art journalling powers! Gorgeous page :-)

Taluula said...

If I could choose I would have the ability to fly because sometimes my feet hurt at the end of a big shopping day! Your work is fabulous, Miss Terri, as always. Kudos to you.

kimmie said...

I love that list!!! And I can so relate to everything on it :)

I find myself thinking quite often lately that I wish I were Samantha in bewitched and I could just wiggle my nose to get the chores out of the way :)

Trudi Sissons said...

This is f a b u l o u s and I think I would have to choose MORPHABILITY just 'cause my imaginary island is Morpharchengigel so, well, ya, know, I'm already half way to being magical.
Terri - you should reconsider making a house!!!! If only because I would LOVE to see a Terri inspired house - it would be so cool!!!

Ozstuff said...

Are we going to see you in a super hero suit, flying over buildings in a single bound? Can't wait. This (picture and text) is wonderful, whimsical and gorgeous.

The best way of weight loss retreats is to join any health retreat Australia I had trouble getting to sleep tonight, as my brain simply would not shut off. I assume it's because I took the pill at noon instead of early in the morning. I will be certain to take my pills with breakfast from now on. Best Fat Burner - Phen375 And How Does It Work
