The sun is shining.........


It's Friday and it is a new year!  I love to see the Holidays come but I, also, am always happy when the hub-bub is over and life gets back to "normal".

I've had a little time this week to play in my journal......

IMG_3617 I'm still into drawing hands, as you can see. The flowers were made with torn and cut tissue paper on a watercolor background. 

The page on the left is a nod to the the class I just finished based on Julia Cameron's book "Vein of Gold".  Julia talks about "synchronicity" in her book and my running into my friend, Dianne, at a concert was such a shining example of that!  I felt a need to journal the memory.

Dianne, who I had not seen since summer, is battling cancer.  As it turned out, she came by herself but she had purchased two extra tickets for friends, who at the last minute were not able to attend.  So, my husband and I moved from our seats and sat with her.  So, we had a chance to catch up on each other's lives and share some meaningful time together!  It was meant to be!

Looking forward to a new year of chance meetings, happy mistakes and increased creativity.

I am linking this post up with Julie Balzer's Art Journal Everyday blog.  Please join me!

I like how your different elements (the tissue flowers & drawn hands) still look connected, I find it hard to do that. Lovely page.
