I have gotten to play a bit in my art journal this week for which I am very grateful.
I know this is happening all over at the moment because I have heard other people mention it but time seems so crazy busy at the moment. Like there is so much on and the balls in the air are about to come crashing down around me. I feel dreadfully behind on everything, if only I could steal a few extra hours from the people who are bored. That would be a match made in heaven. Still I would rather have my life on full, than to be waiting for it on the sidelines, so this is a choice I am making. I just have to hope that the efforts I am making are enough!
Samantha Montgomery decided to run an online course in return for feedback, so because I had so much extra time on my hands!? ( :) ) I put my hand up. The next two pages are in response to prompts she suggested for this week.
While I was out on my walk/jog I took my phone out on one of the days and went a bit slower than normal on the walk as I clicked away. I do the same 5.5kms each day and I was surprised at the fresh perspective I had looking at the different sights through a camera. There are quite a few things I have been missing I discovered. :)
I narrowed down the photos I took to 10, because that is all that would comfortably fit on the page, and I decided on just plain brown paper. I love the way this looks.
The next page was a self-portrait page. The journaling reads: Your story will always have ups & downs – be patient with all of it whether you are crossing to the other side or trudging through the mud.
Finally, I am also participating in the Summer of Color, which you can find out more about here. The colours for this week were citron green and turquoise.
The journaling reads:
Sometimes it feels like everything is in the air, waiting for me to move so it can fall down around me. I need to take a deep breath.
*Deep breath* :)
