August Art Journal Pages

that is what I was trying to capture..

August was a lovely month..
with travel and family visits..

a trip to San Diego
and lots of time at our pool..

it was blissful...

so I wanted to create that feeling of bliss
on my page,
and the star of the skies aligning
with the stars of the 


There was time to relax...
catch up..
take a deep breath..
and visit with family.

it wasn't until the end of the month,
that we became wary..

in the writing above, 
I am urging Irma to go out to sea..

Ingredients: gesso, acrylic paint, antique ephemera, personal photos, graphite pencil, walnut ink, watercolors, molding paste, pencil, pen and ink.

but alas,
that was not meant to be..

I am working on 
September pages right now..

and experimenting 
with watercolors and paper clay..

and mounting some works on board..
for Bis Gallerie
Les Jardin des Amants..
I found some pieces that were unframed 
in May..
but ..
that is a story for another 


Ciao, ciao!

I have absolutely NO idea how I missed this post. It truly DOES look serene and blissful, a time with relatives, a time with no thought of what lay ahead.

The textures you created make me want to reach into the screen and run my hand over these two pages. Such beauty and softness.

I imagine the September pages will be different...these are so peaceful calm and serene. You captured it so well. Hope the return is ogling OK as you deal with the many changes and things that need care and repair...go well.
