ALTERED BOOK ART JOURNALING ~ SPRING

In celebration of spring this is one of the latest pieces I did as part of a year-long art course I'm doing called Life  Book 2014.  Nothing like a weekly assignment to keep you turning out the art work.  I do well with that sort of pressure.  Plus I'm always preparing for classes I teach and crafts I do with the kids in Sunday school  All of this with the back drop of possible war in Ukraine.  As you think of me, pray for peace.
The sun was a saw blade left behind by the roofers last fall.  I picked up several around the yard.  Some half pearls and glitter on top of yellow paint and waa-laa.  This is done in a 10"x14" altered book.  Though you probably can't see it, there is some found poetry in a couple of the flowers.  Left pages says, "Family, where everything begins and love never ends."  Right page, "Thank you for a house full of people I love.  Amen."

Coleen, this is ultra-creative and fun. I love the stems of the flowers. This is so neat. I wish we were closer together and I could join you in crafts. You have such great ideas. Praying for you and Jeff and your ministry there in Ukraine.

Wow! That layout is gorgeous!!! I haven't done art journaling in a couple years and this totally inspires me to get started and do it again! I love the use of the different mediums and the textures. It's inspiring! Thanks for sharing your work that you are doing with the ladies there. They are blessed to have you.
