Personal Journal

I have started a personal journal, to jot down thoughts and feelings, no pictures required. This is another cookbook I found. No harm in this one, it's a microwave cookbook from 1982. Microwaves have changed quite a bit since then, and it's fun to read the intro to the book!

This is my very first page using various Unity kits. It started off a mess, with the flower not wanting to color well. So I just water colored over the whole image and left it at that. I thought about covering it completely, but decided not to. I must embrace what it is. Just like in real life. I may cover over my true feelings for a bit, then I tell myself to just let go. Hold my head high, think positive, and count my blessings.

I random stamped a few more images, then sponged brown ink around for a bit of distressing. My thoughts were written pertaining to that moment, and in the end, it's a perfect start to my journal. I must embrace the mess, and move along!

Thanks so much for visiting, your time is much appreciated!

Yvonne has invited me to share this page with the Art Journal Journey blog, where the theme is 'Tell Me A Story'. I think this page tells a little story, so thank you!
