This is today's page. Just playing with spray mists, stencils, stamps and paint. A good day, playing in my room and thinking about all the changes that come as a result of becoming a parent. What an incredible joy and blessing it is. My oldest turned 29 yesterday, seemingly impossible and yet very real. Once again, I find myself wondering where time goes. I seem to be spending a lot of time pondering this...no answers yet.

Posting some pages out of the visual journal that I am trying to keep. I have never been much of a diary keeper but I think I will do a better job of it if I mix it up with art.
The flowers on this page are made out of leftover painted parchment paper that I did in another class. Love that technique!
This was the result of watching way too much of the Olympic games. I am not a raving feminist by any means but I loved how well the girls performed and the fact that this was the first time we sent more female athletes. I also loved seeing the women from muslim countries participating for the first time.
First time to play with watercolor pencils. I really like them!
I love the way the book paper butterflies look with a wash of watercolor!
A reminder to slow down and really live in the moment! Part of the journaling says "How can I blink and suddenly days, weeks, months and years are gone. Lost in the midst of everyday life."
Enjoy your weekend...and create some art!!
