Art Journal Play

I've been playing in my Art Journal. These are my newest pages:
The crazy face image came from a paper bag that Sarah brought back from Italy and gave me my mother's day gift in. That just gives the page some extra meaning to me.
And here's the close-up:
The wording for this page comes from a Chrysler Town & Country advertisement!

In my case it was particularly appropriate after a whinefest by Rachel about how much she dislikes our family and how we never do anything "fun" together. Yet, she was unable to name a single "fun" activity she would like to do as a family that did not involve spending money. Obviously we have no intention of going into debt to take the ingrates on a family vacation.

I just love looking at your journal pages, Cheri! They are so fun and full of color and meaningful little bits.

Had to chuckle reading about your daughter's attitude about doing something fun. ;o) xo

Cheri, these art journal pages are fantastic - so clever! I love the comment about your daughter, sometimes I think kids just like to have something to moan about!

Just saw your post from yesterday about the hail. Make sure you have your insurance company check your roof. Hail can distroy a roof. You probably don't want to think about this now but have it checked anyway.

This spoke to me today, given that I'm supposed to sit through a three hour performance of Sound Of Music with TSO playing the flute in the orchestra tonight!

Your art journal is absolutely gorgeous, Cheri! I love that "Believe you can do anything at least once a day." I need to add that to my self-talk. :)
