I have been thinking, and therefore I have been journaling. My taste in music over the years has always been a bit on the cheesy side, partly because I just LOVE LOVE LOVE to sing and I therefore I like music that I can holler along to, usually very loudly. I am a great embarrassment to my children these days :-))) When I was younger I had to pretend to like what everyone else was liking but here's the thing ... now I'm older I DON'T CARE!! I don't feel the need to pretend anymore! Don't get me wrong I do have some cool stuff on my i-pod, infact I have a somewhat eclectic selection, but given the choice, when I am driving along in my car I can usually be found singing along to The Carpenters.
And anyway, who decides what is cool and what isn't?
The images on this page came from the wonderful Tumblefish Studios (with the exception of the body which I found in a magazine). Hotfoot it over here to Marsha's Etsy shop where you will find masses of inspirational image sheets.
These days I'm loving splats and grungy paint efects in my journal:
And finally, last week I spent a couple of days in a local primary school doing some art as part of their enrichment week on 'moods and feelings' - perfect for a bit of art journaling. I love watching children make art - they have a freedom which we seem to lose as we get older. They were all painting without restrictions and without the fear of getting it wrong:
Bye for now :-)
