April Art Journal Pages

What you don't see..
dear reader...
is the writing,
below the paint and layers...

Ingredients: Acrylic paint, handmade papers, old lace, paper ephemera, pencil and colored pencils.

This month I wrote about my deadlines,
the show, my class..
our Caribbean journey..
and a small health issue I had to deal with..

I found a decrepit prescription in an antique book..
a page on bluebirds..
odd yes..
but I have learned to pay attention
to signs..

and it was the perfect ephemera 
to mark the page..
a small issue in a large sea of bliss..
but an issue nonetheless ...

yet another thing to conquer..

I learned so much about myself this month and how 
my learned beliefs continue to unconsciously
limit what I want to create..

 I am willing to
those thought patterns going forward..

 This is a busy week in the studio..
the last pieces in my collection are coming together..
and I need to address hardware..
photograph them for you..
and ship them out..

that is the top of the list..
but there is so much more..

I had planned on a YT video
on natural dyes this week but after two massive fails..
It won't be this week after all..

Alrighty then..
and thanks for listening..

Pressures can be helpful or destructive. Let's hope pressure works in your favor and not against you, dear Cat.

I am quite fond of your beautiful art and April art journal pages. The texture is incredible and the layers add such depth. These pages are beautiful and some of my all time favorites.
