This Page . . .

. . . makes me happy. That's all I have to say.Okay, not really. I love the bright colors. I love all the layers. I love the messiness of it. I love that it just came together.

I have two visual journals that I'm working in . . . turns out that the reason I kept ending up with mud is that one must wait for the paint to dry before adding another layer. Imagine that.

Sooooo . . . while I wait for something to dry in one journal, I work on something in the other journal. This particular page is in my Aquabee Super Deluxe Sketchbook. (The other journal is an old encyclopedia.)

I have lots of pages started . . . and work on them little by little . . . I am becoming brave.
Speaking of which. . . . there is an article in the May/Jun issue of Somerset Studio all about Becoming Brave by Erin Kenepp. It is an excellent article and she has a wonderful blog.

Back to the the page . . . the style is very much inspired by Roben-Marie Smith. And I was able to do it by following the Workshop in . . . wanna guess? . . . Somerset Studio.

Really . . . this has been the best issue of Somerset Studio that I have seen in a long time. . .

Thanks for stopping by! May your day be Happy!


  1. Your page makes me happy too and so does the encouraging comment you left on my blog.
    I have done journal pages on Becoming Brave with Erin through 21 Secrets. Becoming brave is certainly something I aspire to in all areas of my life and am actively banishing fear wherever I can :)

  2. You don't have to wait for it to dry...I will show you. We. Journal. Saturday. (That was my caveman voice.)

  3. Thank you, Louise!

  4. Cannot WAIT for Saturday! I. Bring. Paint. (my caveman voice)
