This is a two page spread started on 2/29/12 in meeting one of my Visual Art Journaling Group, completed today, 3/1-12. Torn paper nests, blue acrylic sky, eggs stamps with a dotted texture stamp and cut out of bond paper, embossed and dye-cut leaves, watercolor branches. Journal entry written with a black Sharpie pen. Michael's bargin stamp (bird with note).
The theme for this group was nests and what nurtures your life and future. Big things in my journal: a studio, making art work, daily meditation and exercise, healthy food. Just found out today that my cholesterol is high and that I must diet, exercise, and take a cholesterol drug. Guess we do what we do until it hurts too much to continue. I have gained an alarming amount of weight in the last 5 years and haven't felt myself. Exercise is key. Getting started the hard part.
The funny thing about this group was that I just started it through Meetup and had 9 "Creatives" sign up but none RSVP for the first meeting. I went to my new meeting space and ended up doing the activity with three teens who were there waiting for their moms to get out of a meeting. They made great pages and we all had fun.
