Speaking of gratitude (don't you love my lead in?), Bright Owl asked us to think of something we were grateful for and incorporate it into our template. We could do this however we chose. I chose to do a simple drawing and list the most important 3 things in my life. Inside of template complete, I started tangling. I had finished two sections and was feeling very pleased with my efforts when low and behold there it was - a bobble! Oh no! What to do? Throw my lovely away and start again? I couldn't bear to. Post it and yet again say, there is a goof on this one. That was what I did. So here is my template - goof and all. Even with the goof, I still really like this one.
Journal 52. I love the look of art journals, but have not really gotten involved in making one. We are given a weekly prompt and however we want to use that prompt is up to us. I love the random, free-spirited look of collage art work. That however is not me. Maybe I will give it a try later on. Maybe. The prompt was "Up, Up, Away". I had several thoughts - eagles were high on my list. I love eagles, thanks to my last year's class and their affection for them. But a dream of mine has always been to ride in a hot air balloon (and on an elephant, but that is another story). I know if ever given the chance I would probably decline due to fear. I have never been in a plane for that very reason. Even with the fear factor, I do think to float in a hot air balloon would be thrilling (after the panic attack subsided).
