The last couple of months have been quite a rollercoaster ride with family challenges. But now I’m happy to say we’re on the other side of it all, and moving forward!
Well, at least that’s my intent!
Case in point: Dog on the left-1000 mph, dog on the right-5 mph, toddler in the lead-whatever direction or speed strikes his fancy. This has been my life lately! I don’t see things changing much in the future, I just see it with new eyes and a grateful heart.
I will be spending a lot more time on the other side of the mountains helping my daughter take care of this lil guy while she works, gets her education, and takes care of her new home.
Maintaining what I have re-established i.e.; my shoppe, this blog, and art journaling, from two bases of operation may get a bit tricky at times, but I’ll give it my best shot.
Before I took off to help her move in to her new home, I created a few pages to share on IG. Well actually, I got too busy to even do much of that.
Although, I did share this one, I didn’t say much about it. Cutting out images and giving them a new background is one of my favorite techniques. Polka dots and colorful birds, love it!
This is a journal I pulled out of my shoppe because the original book pages were just to fragile to work with, I’ve had to do that with several of my journals.
I strengthened this page with a layer of gesso, paint scrapes, and washi sheets I picked up at Michaels a few years ago, also some skinny washi down the spine. I decorated with washi tape, a doily, and images. There is definitely room to journal, so I may go back and do that later. This is an image I pulled from a journal I took apart. I won’t go into the type of journal, just that it wasn’t my style. Waste not, want not I say.
A cute little piece that was floating around the studio.
More randomness that needed a home.
I have so much to catch up on because of being away for a week, but I hope to find time to work on my journals too.
I worked on some newness for the shoppe before I left, and I’ll share some of that soon.
Have a great weekend,
Thank you for stopping by,
