Finding the Beautiful

Ah, art journaling….it brings me so much joy lately!

DSC00614_edited-1 {a much doodlier border than I ususally do…very random & free}

Blank pages covered with watercolors…wet and glittery {I love iridescent colored paint!}.  Left blank for a time until loved images are found and glued in place…

Bringing back to life my long-dormant love of hand lettering…something I’ve always enjoyed, but have long neglected. 

{We just don’t seem to write by hand much anymore, do we?  Keyboards and texting have taken over the pen…I’m going to be taking pen back in hand…}

Favorite quotes, poems or random thoughts from my own little head begin finding just the right page to come to life…

…filling my book and  bringing me joy.

Ahhhhhhh……………………….
