Happy almost weekend everyone. (Or maybe actual weekend for you b the time you read this).
Every now and again I find something to inspire me to make a page in my night sky journal. It might be taking me quite awhile to finish it up, but I think it is one of favorite ever journals, so better to take it slow and be inspired than to rush and not like the finish.
This page started with some polka-dot and star patterned paper, a bit of stenciling over that, and then a lot of collaging. The sky chart cam out of an old atlas, and the words were cut from some junk mail I got. (but they are awfully good words I think).
And of course the polka-dots make this page the perfect link up to Art Journal Journey where this month's challenge is Polka-dots, stripes, plaids or patterns. There's still a little over a week to the month so I hope to see some more fantastic entries. And of course, big thanks to all the fantastic art already shared. And big thanks to Susi and Elizabeth for getting the webpage working so we can post!
I decided to take the day off from work today. It is a gorgeous day, that and I am fighting the head cold going around work. Too gorgeous to be inside doing some silly teacher workday activities. The kids have a long weekend (so I am not missing class time), and our district administration planned all these warm fuzzy activities that to me is no more than busy work since they couldn't find anything of value for us to do. (But they can't let us do the work we should and could be doing.) OK, enough said, you can guess how I am feeling about all that, but I did manage to get out for a walk this morning. Hurrah for that! There are certainly some signs of fall.
And there are so many caterpillars this year. Here's a few.
This one below looks like a crawling stick.
Thanks so much for visiting and hope you are having a great day also!
