Happy summer everyone. It is now officially summer in every form-meteorological, astronomical and just plain in everyone's mind. I love these long days, and I celebrated the start of summer with my first swim of the of the year.
It sure felt nice.
The kids finished school today and we have a teacher work day tomorrow. I am mentally exhausted from a year with so many changes at work, and I am excited to have some time to recharge my batteries. And maybe have a few little adventures as well.
So I have another page for Gill's challenge: Inspired By over at Art Journal Journey. It's another spread in my Japan Travel Journal. On the left I printed out a photo and created a page using a piece of origami paper, a torn strip from a Japanese book. some stamped and an embroidered patch. On the right side I used this gorgeous temple die cut, a bunch of identical Japanese postage stamps, as well a embroidered fabric tag.
I'm hoping to wrap up this journal in the next week and move onto some other inspirations.
I have a few ideas I want to experiment with.
But first, I need to wrap up this school year-number 34 for me.
Enjoy this new season.
