Art Journaling on Staycation
Happy Thursday! My vacation has just flown by, and I've loved it! I have been creating every day, walking Asha lots and taking many naps.
Even though it's been a good week, I have had a few challenges. The anxiety is getting to me, so I turned to my art journal today. I created the above page in about 20 mins. I was not worried about technique, or a zillion layers, I just needed to get it out, and get it out fast.
I do like how it turned out, and it helped me quite a bit. It's important for me to step back every once in awhile and just let it all out. Let go.
Really love how this simple page turned out so well! I was given this postcard from a wonderful friend, and just love the message. Thanks so much Sharon!
****EDIT: I was actually given this beautiful postcard from the lovely Joyce! So sorry for the mistake, I LOVE you BOTH!!! xo
These colours were so fun to work with. I had written some notes on the right hand side of the journal that I didn't want to cover up, so I decided to create the spread to the left of it. I really like the way it looks.
This last spread is still a work in process. I am still deciding on a title for the left hand side. I had fun using the Mademoiselle Stack from DCWV.
Sorry for having to cancel my Ustream show last night, major thunder storm was passing through. Speaking of the weather, my thoughts and prayers are with those on the East Coast. Stay safe my friends!
Much Love xox
