Hi everyone. Hope you are having a great weekend.
Today (Saturday) was my day to get a few things done that needed to be done. I got up and finished some grading that wasn't completed so I can post grades Monday, and then my husband and I took off and went down to visit my mother. I hadn't been down to see her since the holidays and it was weighing on me as much as the unfinished grading was. But I must say it's good to have both tasks completed.
And since today was cloudy, damp and raw, it was a good day to get these things done, as well a couple of smaller errands, so tonight I feel totally relaxed. It's a nice feeling.
I am back with Something New for the Jo's fun challenge by that same name at Art Journal Journey.
Well sort of new.
You might remember this page from 2018. (Yup, lousy photo.)
Well I was looking through this journal recently and when I came to this page, I looked at it and just felt like it could use a bit of a facelight. It wasn't bad, but the man and his botany supplies just blended into the page.
So that's my "new". I used some watered down cream colored paint and smeared it around the page just to make the background a bit less white. Now the man stood out better but the page needed a little color. So I found these red flower stickers in my stash and decided they would work with the letters in word Paradise. and I outlined those letters with black Sharpie.
I still left the green gemstones , although I did a bed job including them in the photo.
I'm not sure the page is better than it started, but I like the change. For now at least. Maybe in a couple of years I will look through the journal again and think it needs another facelift. (smile)
And thanks to a suggestion from Alison I am linking up to the We're All Getting Older at a Vintage Journey
That's it for me. Thanks for visiting.
