Here's another completed journal page.......er.......probably fuelled by a little more French Vino Rose and completed on the sun terrace of our hired house at about 10 pm, still about 80 degrees. And yes, we did really see a shooting star but my husband and I both saw this one together and it was really really bright. Ah, of course I made a wish 'cos I do believe that wishes come true sometimes :-)
This year on holiday, I was really struck by just how different two neighbouring countries can be and I spent a lot of time pondering on this. My wicked sense of humour is evident here too because every day people on the beach got caught out by the tide and every day I thought this was hilarious hee hee. (Why don't people just pick up their towels and move? Why do they wait for the inevitable to happen?!)
So, recently I have quite got into the physical process of actually writing because I don't seem to do it much anymore. I had neat handwriting drilled into me at Primary School - I distinctly remember doing handwriting practice every day before lunch at school....getting ascenders and descenders up and down at the right height etc etc and I always liked doing it. Even now I'm naturally quite neat and I have to try and break that mould every now and then because in my art work I would like to be LESS neat and tidy. Really, I LIKE grunge. But anyway, I kind of ran out of things to write about in my journal temporarily, so I decided to write out the words of my favourite song. HA HA! Did you ever do this as a teenager? I had note books full of song lyrics. In some ways I haven't grown up at all. 42, and still writing out words of pop songs LOL! I'm also trying to break a habit, or the need, to make every page to be a work of art. I suppose it doesn't need to be and I don't always have something deep and meaningful to write about. Sometimes I feel like being trite :-))
I only had a small pack of neocolours with me on my hols to create this but I stamped the heart (a Blonde Moments stamp from http://www.afth.co.uk/) at home beforehand. Creating this page also gave me an excuse to put my i-pod on for a short while on holiday and shut out the demands for a bit. Any Mums out there will know what I mean..........!!!I have some French Flea Market Postcards to share soon so keep an eye out. Bye for now.
