Art Journal – Future

I’m really liking this new journal…it’s a joy to work in so far.  This is the fourth page.  This one began with a wash, collage pieces glued down.  Then I started drawing little flowers and swirls in the background.  I used a Sharpie pen and Caran d’Ache crayons again on this page.  I am finding that I can use a Sharpie pen if the crayons have been thinned with water.  As for the future, I’m trying to stay positive about it.

bright future

    Every time I visit you I see something else that makes me glad I stopped in. You always make me want to keep trying to succeed- and success for me would be to create something that I am happy with. Your work is creative, colorful, and inspiring. I have the feeling I have told you this before, but I really admire the stuff that you produce!
    I love the blues and greens in this piece- but it is the quote that really does it for me- you have made a sort of “vision board”- something that I could live with, on my wall. The quote, colors, and drawings add up to a peaceful wish.

    the comment above is exactly the way I feel about your page and your work too:) As soon as I saw this page, it just took me to that picture I have in my head of the future-living by the ocean and everything is calm and peaceful, thank you!!

    ooh- one more thing- I have added you to my list of favorite sites, and I recommened a visit to your site in a quick blurb. I am not sure of the proper protocol-
    I hope that was ok!

    Thank you so much to you both…Trish my journal is a small Holbein mixed media book. Look on the journal page I did called “Alternating Currents.” I mentioned the kind and where I got it on that post. Jenny, thanks for adding me to your links, I greatly appreciate that.

    I sometimes find it hard to be optimistic about the future. Seems people are forgetting more and more the importance of maintaining a “healthy and radiant” world. Still, this makes me smile. 🙂
