Art Journal Week 22, I Want To Learn

What a fantastic prompt, I would never think of some of these. I am quite excited as I have a stack of these altered playing cards growing & think the time has come to make the holes & thread them onto the waiting 3inch book ring. They will look amazing all 52 together. I think we have all done so well & I use this challenge as my weekly "ME TREAT". Time out to make a little piece of art just for me!

Well I really want to learn to play guitar. It has been a dream of mine since I was 3 or 4 years old & my parents bought me a fake electric guitar. I pretended to be Chuck Berry, playing "My Ding-a-Ling" to everyone & anyone who cared to listen! Or didn't as the case may be! (I always had a passion for sunglasses & pretended to be Ronnie Corbett, I was a very odd child!)
Anyhow, getting back to the point, I have had various lessons from various people & I just CAN'T learn!!
I am left handed brought up in a right handed family & neither way feels comfortable to hold the instrument. So I just daydream about being able to play. Rather like the daydream of being paid a better wage! Pipe Dreams they call them, we all should have them.
My excuse is I am a Piscean & we are dreamy, floaty people!

edit to this post as several people have asked about the background. It is paper. I purchased it from Lakeland Limited in a card making kit two years ago.

This is so wright!!! I just love to see my stack of cards growing, they are on a ring already but I need a bigger one, or just a small chain.... would look nice too I guess!!

Love your card, and you know what? It IS possible to play guitar when you are left handed, my BIL is lefthanded too and plays the guitar very good!!
