Sharing for a neighbor; what I've done to a couple pages in my art journal.
This started out as a typical calendar page; filled with important dates and notes relevant to radiation/chemo AND DS's school stuff, etc. As the month progressed, I felt frustrated with all the holds and rescheduling; being unsure what each day would bring. More and more, I would find myself thinking of the title of a Spanish story I read back in college, Regressa, Usted, Manana (Come back tomorrow). So, I got artsy with it.
*I used my brick template and Poppy GM as the base; pretty pleased that I could still see the info underneath it. Oh, I also did the ghosting thing (yes? ghosting?) by using the template as normal on the left, then placing the right page on top to sop up the GM on the actual stencil.
*I outlined important days with a Tim Holtz Distress marker; to preserve them.
*The glitter tape just makes me happy; so I used it as backdrop for the title on the right.
*I outlined three bricks on the right as journal spots.
*At the time I made this, I'd only had 7 treatments (when it should have been 17); so I included the cute lil playing card on the right; taped it down and journaled on the back.
*The fussy cut flowers are out of a catalog we've had for several months. I desperately want to plant a garden full of dahlias and lilies.
.... I think that's everything. It's only my first attempt at art journaling; so I'm looking forward to more practice.
