I've Cracked It Open Again

These are a few snippets from some pages in my art journal.
These were done months ago.

It's been that long since I've worked in it.
I've missed it terribly.

Last Friday I pulled it out.

I blew the dust off of it
and cracked it open.

I slowly looked through the previous pages.
I like to do that often when I'm working it in.

Then I pulled out some paint
and sighed a big sigh.

PS.  The bread turned out great and so did the soup.
Despite what the "children" thought.

PSS. HELLO!! to all of my new visitors!

Oh how beautiful. I am so intimidated by the thought of an art journal. And yet every time I see your beauty it makes me itch to start one too. But alas mine wouldn't be in the same league not even close.

Your journal is so beautiful I wish I could do that! I love to paint and draw but it never looks that pretty!

So many questions. I must touch your journal. Is that blue flower painted on fabric? Lord have mercy, child...

Is this a remains of the day journal?

You are something.

It's funny...just this week I have seemed driven to start art journaling, and it seems that suddenly, everywhere I look, I see a beautiful and inspiring example. Yours is gorgeous! Your muse certainly didn't desert you there!

I need to click on your 3 links more. I found this cracked open post and am drooling seriously. I love the writing, as someone still searching for a "writing" style, nice writing tugs at my heart.
