Words & Art

I saw this picture and this journal page just over took my brain & I had to get it on paper! It is kind of funny that I reference holding glass crystals up to the light. We had just recently watched the movie Polly Anna
The always look on the bright side little girl!
This is currently my favorite, favorite page I have done. This is my go to word. It works under any situation. Good,bad, happy or sad. It is always good to take a step back & BREATHE. If it is a positive situation this helps me to remember & savor the moment. If it is a rough situation it helps me to clear my head & think.

So take a moment & BREATHE today!

Comment & Following Love

Thanks to those of you who are followers, those of you who leave comments & those lurkers (my sister!)

Pixie over at explains what Fat Balls are?!

Jackie over at left a comment on Abstract that led to a truly inspiring artist, Pamela Sukhum . I just love her technique. The way she uses her whole body to just flow with the paint as it is placed onto the canvas is mesmerizing.

Jackie has a survey for her upcoming magazine about letter writing and journaling. She has a love of pens & paper and finds all sorts of nifty links to such things.

Oh to be an Art Journal...................

Where it is Beautiful to be Fat & Lumpy!!!

These are just some of my well loved art journals! I do the covers last. Need to do the cover on the larger red covered one, as well as my The Decorated Page workshop art journal cover. That one is falling off the stack in the bottom picture. As I look at the pictures I realize that I need to do more edge embellishments.
How many do you have?
