"Springing forward" on this early March weekend sent me to my journal to mark the event in pastel shades of my favorite colors. I adore using molding paste through stencils and masks... the look makes my heart sing... The fabulous new Ranger Tim Holtz distress paints were used to give the look I wanted. I can tell I will need to get a few more colors in these, as they blend so well and are permanent when dry.
I have been working some this week in my aforementioned PONDERINGS 1 journal. My first page is a simple layout with a "library card" theme.
Last Monday was my day to go have my 2012 taxes completed by my accountant. After lots of looking at all the figures, the final verdict was... I have to pay a little to the federal government, but will receive a refund from the state... so I came out "almost even"... but a little to my good... whew.... So I came home and made a page to commemorate the day... with a little "tax monkey" and some clear pockets holding the plusses and minuses.
Birds are always a theme in my work. so I loved sketching and writing about the darling birds that live in my yard and eat from my feeders. I had a piece of bird-themed wrapping paper as the inspiration here.
This page even included a tiny packet of the seed I give to my bird friends. I love the analogy of the seed... so much abundance begins with the tiniest seed.
I find adventure comes my way when I open my heart. Adventure can take many forms, but is a large part of what makes life worth living. May you open your heart and have a week full of adventure.
