SP Wednesday, musings...

Decided to play in my journal today after pulling a few photos out to do a SP entry. I keep the photos simple and cheap for my journals - inkjet on plain paper, nothing fancy. I do admit that I'm not one for self-portraits and so they are a bit of a challenge for me.

However, I'm on a mission right now to try out at least 1 or 2 new journaling ideas each week leading up to the Mixed Media Journaling class I'm teaching here locally in July. I want to have some solid techniques to share with my students.

'self-portrait', 10x10 journal

Evolution of the page: I'm always amazed when a page starts to come to life on its own, especially when I have nothing particular in mind for it. I have been very introspective lately and pondering many things so that's why I think those past, present, future 'balloons' popped up. The white blocks were stenciled in and are perfect for adding text, I'll get to that another day...

Why don't you join us over at Misty Mawn's blog for her SP wednesdays? I'm finally getting in on this weekly challenge - only took me three months to get around to it :>

Have a great week y'all!
