Flowering Art Journal







Last weekend, gentle reader...

I found some time to get back into the 
Flowering Art Journal and play a bit more...















So I thought I would share some of the little details









after sharing with you




some of the products that I have been mixing in this little
handmade journal..
Putting them all together makes for such an artistic soup...





Collage is wonderful to blend with
layers of paint and gelatos add such shimmer and shine..

I have been adding my drawings on tissue paper
which enables the viewer to see the layers beneath the drawing,
 the layering effect in my journal...
is almost like seeing all the layers of plants in the garden..






It is all about the details..







For me...
That is what art is..
paying attention to the details, 
listening to the heart..
and documenting the journey...







So I am back to work..
in between gardening and weed pulling
which is job security..
for a gardener...


The days are hot here and the pool is a lovely diversion..
but I have to finish June pages..
and I am working on another travel journal as we
will be visiting the Caribbean again soon.. 

and as soon as I finish the portrait..
I will be working on my new mixed media floral series..


Alas, no rest for the creative.. 
I am sure..

You are absolutely right about the details. That's what makes all the difference to the end result. I think exactly the same! I love your drawings over the lovely tissue paper. All gorgeous!
That is the perfect life as far as I'm concerned - working in the garden then working in the journal LOL!
Thanks so much for always sharing what you love so much!
Hugs,
Suzy

Lovely. As usual, I took my journal on our recent trip and didn't get past documenting the first day. :/ I need to play catch up on many things but unfortunately not feeling so creative at the moment. 120 F today and I am missing being surrounded by green things.

This is most impressive. The details you shared of this latest book are wonderful. The attention to detail is not overlooked, and your choice of images is as precise as your choice of words you use to describe your process. Sheer jaw dropping beauty.
