It is Friday again. This past week went soooo fast for me. Here in the US we have a long weekend on our doorstep. The kids in my school district are off today, as we have a teacher workday. My hope is that we get out after our workshop ends at 2. Getting out a little early before a long weekend would be a good thing to help beat the holiday traffic and help with morale a bit too.
So today I have a journal page. The idea came from the 1997 movie GATTACA. Don't know if anyone has seen it, but it is about a world where people's DNA being engineered is more important than what someone can do or achieve with what they naturally inherited. I always show it to my kids at school, and while recently watching it I was inspired by one line that Uma Thurman says to her new boyfriend Ethan Hawke. GATTACA is the space center and Ethan Hawke plays a man named Vincent who is an astronaut (as is Irene, played by Uma). He is going into space for a year, and although he's worked very hard to get to that point, he is now uncertain if he wants to go. Uma replies to his comment about being gone for a year "That it is not that long. It is only 1 trip around the sun."
(If you haven't seen the film, I recommend it. I haven't given anything away in my description.)
This is a fairly quick page made with painting and some stamping and a little bit of collage too.
Since it is Friday I am linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thank you Kristen and Eva for hosting such a great site. And also I am linking up to Art Journal Journey where the theme is journeys. Although the month is winding down there is still a few days left to link up and join the fun.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, and if you are celebrating the long Memorial Day weekend, hope you enjoy the extra day off.
Thanks for stopping by my post!
