Thanksgiving Journal Page...

Here's another page in my Book of Days that didn't take much time...
We were gone all day on Thanksgiving, so when we got home I was tired.  I still felt like journaling, but I didn't have a lot of energy.  Simple was the name of the game.  The background is just spray ink over wet gesso.  I cut the big flower out of some gift wrap, and painted the words with a big brush and more gesso.  The photo is one that Michael took of me that day, and I feel like it captures my emotion perfectly!  A super simple page, but it still says what I want it to.  My journal is about half-full now!  I will post a pic soon.

Did you see that Mary Ann Moss is having another workshop?  It's called "Ticket to Venice," and it's going to be a really unique adventure in travel journaling.  I'm all signed up and so excited!  Check it out here.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Would you consider turning off word verification? I have mine turned off and don't have a problem with spam.

Thanks for your kind words everyone!

Yvonne, I've tried turning off word verification, and I started getting spam right away. Sorry about that. Is it causing trouble for you?
