Splitter-Splatter and Pitter-Patter...

Tis me just flitting in with two new pages of inky ramblings. At the moment I'm leap-frogging - paintbrush in hand - between journal pages, nursery floors and DT work!

It seems my gentle stroll into a bit of art journalling is well-timed as it definitely balances out the demands of creating for set themes. It's nice to just 'do a bit', ponder the mood and come back with another layer, be it midday or midnight...
Although I started them separately, somehow these two pages really wanted to hold hands...
so I worked on both with layers of Color Washes, Dylusions Sprays, stencils and heaps of gesso. The words read 'being me' and 'It's simply done with shatter-proof life" which relates to me being tougher than I think, even on uncertain ground.
I'm on an often turbulent but I think also worthwhile journey with myself. Learning to just be, and embrace where I am today. All those motivational sentiment stamps we have look pretty on paper... in real life they take a bit more homework.
Wishing you all lots of Happy Weekending! Sarah.

I love your pages. The colors are wonderful and you have created so much depth and movement with the layers. I find art journaling to be the best way to be present with myself, connect with my center and many times come to a more peaceful place with myself and my circumstances Thanks for sharing!

love not only the page, but how you build it: i'm the kind of person who can't let go till it's done. so this is a very nice lesson of the day and i'll think of it next time i'm stuck: let go and come back whenever you feel it!
thanks so much for joining us at Art Journal Café! Hope to see you back for our next challenge :)
