Another month, and look what I found here.
Make an art journal page with just text. I have rid myself of so many of the magazines I'd hoarded in the sake of space but had some travel ones which was good. The older bits of text I have in my Words drawer were used mainly as journal inspirations a few years ago. I'd add the text to a blank page and write whatever the wording brought up. I also made a journal for a (younger) friend when she graduated from college. I hadn't added to that drawer much these days ...my digital life had taken over.
I knew right off the bat that I wanted to do a text follow up to the pre Hawaii page. So I cut happy, inspiring bits of text and got it all done last night, just sitting with dh and talking about ...electronic gadgets.
Then I laid them out and found that the texts just flowed the way I wanted them to. The larger bunches of words I left out deciding that the straight linear way was going to work. I could journal in the smaller spaces later. Once I had them laid out on a blank sheet of paper, I snapped a photo which I then kept up on my iMac screen as a template.
Then glue the bits down, leave out the big ones, and there it is ...a background I like for another Hawaii page. What I now feel about the trip will get written, someday. Probably someday soon.
Now I can go look at what the other Crusaders have made and try not to be too judgemental about my own work after seeing theirs. Mine looks very unfinished but it does tell a lot of my story already. It is what it is!
