As you all know, I moved. I've only been officially moved in for 4 days!! I packed my art supplies first, because I KNEW, that if I didn't, I would make stuff instead of pack!
SO. The first of the year comes, and with it comes the email from A year in the life of an art journal, talking about getting your journal ready. I read it, I am jealous. I packed everything. I pout about it for a little bit, and, with a sigh, I went back to my packing.
Then, 2 weeks later, I get the next email, which explained the prompt above. Now, I am angry! I don't want to wait to unpack (which will not happen until fall), I want to get to work now! I don't want to be behind! What do I do????
I go into the boys room. There HAS to be something in there!! And there was!! There was a spiral bound book, with white cardstock weight pages in it, a box of markers, and some random paper from a previous book report. But, the big item I found was some water colors!! A strip of watercolors, that children use to paint with. JACKPOT!!
Now, I felt like this was going to be a challenge!! And, I liked it!! I was ready to spend, just a little time a day, for couple of days and get this done!!
I used the paints first, some on the white pages, some over the papers I put on the page. I also made a little envelope type thing, that I tied with some rope. Then, I used the paint brush and water to sprinkle some on the water colors so they would run. Inside, I wrote the things that I want NOW! And I wrote the word I have for the year. Last year was positive thinking. This year it's patience. I am not patient. I want everything done NOW. I don't want to wait for anything. I'm in a hurry to get somewhere, I'm always trying to get projects done before they are due. This is bad for me and for everyone. So, when things are going too slow for me, I have to take a deep breath, and be patient! Anywho, here is my offering.
This page has been on my gallery blog as well, but I wanted to share my crazy story, and post about it too.
Have a fabulous day!!!
