Today hubby's working his last day, and then will be off for three weeks! Yeah! Finally time to spend some time together and relax :-)
This week I didn't paint on my large canvas nor in my bathroom. Reason for this being the two little fuzzballs I'm still taking care of. They need a lot of attention which makes it difficult for me to work any length of time. So this week, in between feeding the kittens, playing with them and doing all the other chores, I made another artjournal spread. It's a long time ago I worked in my journal, but I signed up for a workshop with Roxanne Coble "Creatures" and have been longing to try out the tips and techniques.
I love her style of journaling, and I'm still struggling with making artjournaling more than just painting in a book instead of on a canvas. Also, I needed an outlet for my feelings of frustration and fear and bewilderment and anger about the state of the world today.
Needed to put some birds in there and some hearts and an outstretched hand, to balance out the anguish.
Here's the whole spread. The quote is from the movie "the green mile", and I thought it fitted perfectly with what I (and I guess a lot of other people) am feeling today.
Now on to something that makes me still feel in love with the world and its creatures:
They will stay for a few more days and then will go back to my sister, who will keep them at their farm. No doubt they'll have a ball chasing after mice :-)
Well, that's it for now and for the next few weeks. I'm taking some time off from blogging to enjoy the holidays with my family. Linking this to Paint Party Friday, as always. Follow the link to see some wonderful creations!
And to end, in this world of misery, I think we can all use some laughs, so here are my funnies for this week:
Sorry to keep posting about Trump, but geez, I cannot believe there's actually a risk of him becoming the next president of the United States. That would be a nightmare for the US and for the entire world. I just hope every single American with some sense in his head will go and vote for Hillary. Let Brexit be a lesson!
Thanks to everyone visiting here, thanks for your comments and I wish all of you a day, a weekend, a week, a month, of joy and happiness and peace. Especially peace ....
See you in a few weeks time ♥ ♥ ♥
