january art journaling

Last week I dove back into my art journal and completed 3 spreads.
What a great feeling that is!

For this spread I used an old calendar that hung in my family's home when I was 13 years old :)
I chose pastels to add color to the water and the background of the calendar page.

On a different set of pages shown below, I used a number of image transfers . . . packing tape transfers of magazine images (those eyes!) and a transfer of a photo of Steven paddling in Canada. I transferred that photo onto fabric and another photo of bougainvillea onto paper. I combined these transfer images with some leftover Gelli Plate prints and old wrapping paper, then added color with watercolor crayons.

This is my positive affirmation journal and so I am always adding a quote or a few words that
speak to me and keep me feeling positive, I love looking through this journal!

The last spread - or rather the first one I completed last week was done with a background 
of two paints and some of my favorite marbled paper.

 I made a video showcasing these journal pages which you can view below or via this link!
There are a few photos at the end of a trip across the river in Dave Lucas' hand built boat, The Helen Marie, with Steve as the captain, just for fun! 

Thanks for stopping by!

And below, a video I created from all of the photos I took that day! 

This was the 3rd Annual dance, potluck and Jam on Siesta Key beach, 
organized by my friend Kathy Oravec who facilitates Conscious Movement.
The link is here if you do not see it in the post! 

Then later, Steven and I went to my mom's and had a lovely, quiet meal with her 
and all of our dogs, we are very blessed! Wishing you all the best! 

 Asia, Steve and Loki on Christmas night.
There were 5 dogs and 3 humans enjoying the evening!

Asia says, is this my place for dinner?
