My next journal is based on a "Balance" theme, something that I am working on in my life. I thought I'd share a page completed. These are larger pages, so it takes a bit more time and thought, but it is a nice balance of thinking and non-thinking. Very relaxing and rewarding. Enjoy!

Today was the day to clean up old leaves and dead branches in the yard - and bring out my Spring wreath. I pulled the wreath from its box, only to remember that all the decorations had fallen apart, been picked off by our neighborhood bird (that nests in our tree every Spring), or knocked off by people going in and out. Off to Michaels to shop for new decorations! Yeah - I love shopping in craft stores! I bought a handful of picks, foam eggs, birds nests, and a cute bird - and hot glued everything in place. Looks great and spring-y on my red door, don't you think?

Yes, I know.. more birds, but it's that time of year. I completed Sanna's pages for our Round Robin. Her theme was vintage sewing and songbirds; colors, red and distressed brown. I made the first page very vintage by sewing paper, lace and vellum, but page 2 I wanted to be fun, since it would be the last page in her book. I will post my completed book featuring 9 wonderful artists shortly.

We had a wonderful Journaling class today at Blick Art Materials. Thank you, RaeAnn, Susan, Rosanne and Alyssa for your enthusiasm and talent! Everyone brought a slightly different style to their journals. It was so wonderful to see. We played with pattern pieces and foreign newspapers, juicy vivid ink pads, prompts, and more. It was a joy to see everyone's individual story come out through the process of journaling. It never ceases to amaze me to see everyone's self-expression come to life.
