Enjoy!

I've challenged myself to work in my art journals regularly, so of course, signed up for two journal prompt groups. Colour Me Positive and Journal52. I figure I should complete at least one of them each week, and maybe combine the prompts if it works. We'll see. 

The theme for Journal52 this week was your word of the year. So I used ENJOY - one of my focus words this year. 
I kinda messed up this page... stamped with Versafine on layers of acrylic, which is taking forEVER to dry. And smudged it before I realized it still wasn't set. So I wanted to added the words "the process" with my Stazon black ink, except it need re-inking and of course, I can't find the re-inker bottle. hmmmmm.... O.o
So I wrote the words with my Pitt pen, rather than stamp with ink that still isn't quite dry several hours later. And am not totally thrilled, but there ya go. 


Life is a process and you may as well enjoy it as not, don't you think. 
It's all in the attitude. 


My Colour Me Positive spread was done in a tiny journal given to me by a friend. This week the theme was gratitude. I'm a bit happier with this spread :) 



I shall preserve! My mojo will get in gear any time now. *grin* 

Thanks for stopping by!

Both journals are lovely, and it's a good idea to join groups which keep us on our toes. Re-inkers have a habit of disappearing when you need them. Last week my black ink pad hid in the fridge, and then I discovered the Philadelphia cream cheese in the ink box....Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

Both pages are just wonderful. I always want to join in but always tell myself no, I don't have the time. Can't wait to see what you create for next time.
