Had a fabulous day today with my Mum, we spent all afternoon, painting, chatting, painting, chatting, drinking tea, chatting, cutting, chatting, painting etc - it was lovely and I really enjoyed it - it's amazing what a mess two art journalers can make - it kind of multiplies - at one point the breakfast bar was barely visible and the dining room table was awash with acrylic paints, baby wipes, newspaper, paintbrushes etc! Thankfully my Mum helped tidy up before she went, I managed to finish off one in my large art journal that I've been fighting with since my return from Harrogate (I've gone smaller and so it's proved harder to supersize back up again if you know what I mean LOL). But I've not photographed that yet so I'll just show you a couple more pages that I've done for the book I made with Dyan.
Look a yellow page, my sisters favourite LOL! Photo combination is becoming quite a lot of fun, my Mum hadn't dabbled that way but I've managed to coax her into playing today and she had loads of fun!
Another favourite one below, I love the images on this and wasn't sure what I would document, but a little chat with my lad on Sunday provided the perfect little bit of journaling - it reads;
"So Dad (as it was his birthday) what time were you born? "
"I don't know"
"Why not can't you remember?"
Laughed until I cried honestly these wonderful snippets of conversation are beautiful!
Hope everyone is having a relaxing evening I've had a tremendous day, very contemplative thinking about people who aren't here any more and people who are no longer part of my life, hugs to everyone (see I told you it would be brief - you didn't believe me did you - now be honest you really want to read more - don't you LMAO?)
