52 Motley Journal Pages: #15-20 :: Glue Booking Notebook

Hello!  Playing a little catch up here while a little crate training is in progress.

Since we adopted a new four-leg-ed baby into the family a few weeks ago I have not had nearly enough time to paint or play much in the art loft. I'm seriously on the edge, emotionally. Not arting in the loft makes me crazy emotional, depressed, frustrated, angry and resentful. I have barely had enough time to keep up with some necessities; bill paying, dish washing, etc. It's like having a walking new born who doesn't wear a diaper. :)

I keep a small notebook in my faux-dori planner for glue booking (a.k.a. collage). For the most part it represents what I need to hear on that given day, or any given day for that matter. I thought I'd share them with you today as part of my #52motleyjournalpages series. I hadn't really thought of them as art journaling pages and had no intention of sharing them, but in essance they are. I simply chose to glue them together rather than paint them. Sometimes harder truths, deeper truths come out in a collage as you sift through piles of words and images.

Find what moves you. Do more of what you love.

Self care. Let go. Be free.

Overwhelm. Baby steps add up to movement. 

Be like a tree.
I absolutely love trees! To me they represent presence, being in the present and trusting life's process. They don't compare. They don't wish they were taller or more colorful. They trust that they are who they are; what they are. They don't look up. They don't look down. They are always living in the Now. And they are always reaching out, giving of themselves providing shade, shelter, food and beauty. 

Breathe. More. Inhale. Exhale. 

Love the skin you're in.

Thanks for stopping by today!  xo
