Default MIX364: Positively You

Title: Positively You
Hostess: Janelle S (a.k.a dizzymommie)
Keyword: MIX364


Today is a new challenge here in the Mix-Ability forum! I'm happy to be your host. Whether you have been here many times or this is your first, we are here to help you make easy and fun steps towards mixed media projects!

This challenge is to use key positive words from a favorite speech, quote, poem, or whatever you find inspiring!

Are you feeling adventurous? Use an online text analyzer to help you pick out the words! Type "text analyzer" in your search browser and have some fun! For example, the famous speech, and the catalyst for the challenge, from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Here are the top positive words (credit: *positivewordresearch.com blog).

  • WILL
  • FREEDOM
  • FREE
  • ABLE
  • JUSTICE
  • SATISFIED
*The Mix-Ability team tested the Positive Word Research analyzer tool and were unsuccessful, so experiment with a free online text analyzer from a web search.

When you have finished with your project, upload it to your member gallery and use the keyword "MIX364" so we can see it in this challenges gallery.

I can't wait to see how you complete the challenge, and remember ENJOY the process. Tell us your inspiration source, too!

Interesting challenge. I had to manually scan for positive words from the lists I found, I couldn't find a filter to screen them for me. My favourite poem gave me success, useful, beautiful and pretty. My next favourite poem gave me climb and true. Now the real challenge is to see if I can incorporate either of those into a card I would actually use.
The poems were How to paint the portrait of a bird, and Ars Poetica.

My Poem: 

Ars Poetica
BY ARCHIBALD MACLEISH

A poem should be palpable and mute   
As a globed fruit,

Dumb
As old medallions to the thumb,

Silent as the sleeve-worn stone
Of casement ledges where the moss has grown—

A poem should be wordless   
As the flight of birds.
                        

A poem should be motionless in time   
As the moon climbs,

Leaving, as the moon releases
Twig by twig the night-entangled trees,

Leaving, as the moon behind the winter leaves,   
Memory by memory the mind—

A poem should be motionless in time   
As the moon climbs.                               

A poem should be equal to:
Not true.

For all the history of grief
An empty doorway and a maple leaf.

For love
The leaning grasses and two lights above the sea—

A poem should not mean   
But be.


 My card - no relation to the poem at all!

MIX364 Climb any Mountain by Cook22 at Splitcoaststampers.
I guess Love might have counted as a positive word too, but I was having trouble finding anything to do the analysis, and was going boggle-eyed reading the alphabetical lists of positive words. But I did enjoy the challenge - thank you.

I am playing my "Challenge Catch-up" cardmaking and catching up on my SCS postings.

My quote: "How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains." by John Muir, which gives off a beautiful sun in a serene mountains setting. That is what I've tried to portray in this birthday card for my son. Mediums used: stamping ink, Wink of Stella, computer ink.

Here is my card: October Birthday (Paper Pumpkin--March 2021-Here's to You, Alternative #1) by Chatterbox-1 at Splitcoaststampers It is an Alternative Paper Pumpkin for the March 2021 kit--Here's to You. Its design is my own.
