Weekend, Wonderful and Porky Pig Trotters!

Another random Blog post title it seems, but it all makes perfect sense in my world! Just spent the morning chipping away at the - hallelujah, now shorter - To Do list as I waddle towards week 38 of Babydom. All the new blinds are up, so no more obscure angled undressing on the landing and just 6 DT pieces left to do! By jove, I might actually soon be kind of some how ready. Let's add an 'ish' just to be safe...
Despite deadlines I have made a little 'just me' time to work on two more journal pages - another double spread... another whatever I'm feeling...

The intrinsic thought behind these pages is "She found wonderful and wanted to stay..."

All to do with me being in quite a happy place in life. Moreover, me allowing the wonderful to be here.
Mixing up Ranger Color Wash, Dylusions ink with lots of gesso. I like scribbling with them as well as spraying, splashing  and stencilling... Sharing with Art Journal Cafe again!
The 'stay' bit is quite small and you have to look hard to find it ...  but such is life too -sometimes you have to hunt down the whole story!
I'll let the pages do the talking instead of me for a change - a miracle indeed! I'm off for a swim to see if it might help cool off my porky piggy feet. My ankles went on holiday as soon as the sun came out...
If you're up to anything flowery - doodly, shabby, painty, girly or grungy why not share your art and join in with this month's My Mojo Monthly?! It's a Floral Frenzy theme and there's still a week to go...
Happy Weekending to all! Sarah.

Wat ga je ontzettend lekker met je art journal. Heerlijk dat je je zo kunt laten gaan. Ik heb daar meestal een beetje moeite mee en dat zou ik ook wel willen :-)

You get A+ for effort and commitment from me! Hope you get the rest of the DT projects done, otherwise I can see you sitting up in hospital with all your craft goodies around you..........hope your feet/ankles are relieved after your swim.
