So, my friend Steph’s comment on the last blog entry was to try some stitching….and since she is usually right with these things, I tried it out. So here are the 2 pages, with stitching around parts of the edges and I think they are finished. Thanks Steph!

A journal page with a favorite photo I took years ago. The photo on the left of the page I took looking through a tunnel at Central Park near the Bethesda Fountain. There was a man playing an instrument in an unusual costume that everyone is looking at. I just love the way the light floods in. The geometric image along the top is a Frank Lloyd Wright piece. The other images are from magazines. The brown framing is Japanese paper tape.
I have been woefully neglectful. Sometimes too much time creates a loss of focus for me. No excuses, just mea culpas. I have been neglectful of this space. However, I have not been neglecting art….so there’s an upside, lots to catch up on. I’ve been working on several journals, collages, and a few pieces I am working on to submit to CPS and Somerset Studio (so they will not be posted until I hear yea or nay).
To start, some journal pages:
I still struggle with words…to add or not to add….As I look at them, the first page does feel like it needs written word and I think the second stands on it’s own. The problem is even when it feels like words are needed I find myself at a loss, no words come to mind. Ahhh well, keep on keeping at it. TFL
Don’t know why, but I have been having a hard time getting myself to post updates. Perhaps it is because, once again, I have begun a new project. I’ve started a new facebook page for my “day job”…feel free to stop by if you’d like: “arttherapyinfo” is the name of the business page.
I have been busy on my journal, however and will spend some time catching up with posts.
This is a journal page I worked on while trying to figure out my next step to keep building my private practice. The main image of the ferris wheel is a photo I took a few years ago while at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. The title “All Roads” does come from “all roads lead to Rome”, it has been a theme in my life in such unusual ways that it has become a motto. ‘Nuf said.
