Spring Has Sprung - My Art Journal is Blooming

It is the first day of Spring !

How marvelous !

It is glorious here today.

Spring-y in very way.

I am happy to say that I have completed my "Journeys" Art Journal slide show and it is here for you to peruse.

Looking through it really makes me feel like my garden is blooming !

This is my third completed journal and most definitely, my favorite.

Some things I love about it...

The vibrant colors,

How much of the content is all my own,

The discovery of India ink,

How it shows how far of a journey I have made since I started it just over a year ago.

I guess these are like snapshots and postcards from my trip. :)

Enjoy the show !


**Edit - Here's a song I feel is like the soundtrack to the slide show...

Hope your garden is blooming too...

Happy Spring, Beautiful Ones !

Bold and bursting with beauty and creative juice. I think the one I like the most isn't one that is artsy or beautiful for what materials you used...it's the one of the house...the home of your dreams because of the people in it. Um hmm....YES! ♥

Happy first day of Spring Kim! You will have to fill me in on how you made this slideshow. You might not realize it but you are one of my biggest mentors. Looking forward to breaking bread with you again soon.

Oh my goodness, Kim - this is amazing. I started the song a bit late, but the soundtrack was gorgeous too. :)

The journal pages - so much to comment on! The color, the detail on some of those pages, the depth, the honesty, the messages, those quotes, the color (yup, mentioned that twice)...Wow.

Thank you for opening yourself and sharing it with us.
