It's my birthday today and I wanted to celebrate by sharing two journal pages with you. The first one was prompted by a challenge to write a haiku by http://putitonpaper.org/. Haiku? I never wrote one before. So, I gave it a whirl. I really enjoyed writing it. AND I just discovered a blog that hosts haiku my heart EVERY Friday.......how fantastic! You can find it @ http://corazon.typepad.com/recuerda_mi_corazon/. yay!:)
I used red washi tape for the border around the woman and some Artchixstudio elements on the dress. They have fantastic art supplies for the mixed media artist. I especially love their collage sheets. Helga and James are the owners and wonderful human beings. You can find their stuff @ http://artchixstudio.com/. And Helga has a great blog too. You can find it at http://myartisticlife.typepad.com/.
The second journal page is a thought I have on getting older. Typical, right? But I had to get it out of my system. I think it's a shame that in the United States we almost feel sorry for women as they are getting older. It seems to me, age is celebrated in other countries for both men AND women. I'm choosing to celebrate today!
