Another Afternoon of Art Journaling

Saturday's art journaling workspace... a.k.a. a table at Starbucks

This last weekend was quite busy and quite fun. It involved a trip to Potomac Mills, an afternoon of art journaling, and a morning of knitting with the girls. After a morning of some retail therapy with Alison (check for a post later this week on that little expedition), I met up with Valerie for an afternoon of art journaling. ┬áThe girls are meeting up later this month and due to some scheduling conflicts I won’t be able to attend, so we set aside some time at the beginning of this month to catch up, tear some images, and do some journaling.

The afternoon was pretty icky, so it was nice to be seated inside with a cup of hot tea and good company. And unlike my last afternoon of art journaling, I was completely ready to get to work on pages. I tore some images and articles out of one magazine, but then, I started to put some pages together. Today, I was ready to find inspiration and start pulling a mis-mash of images collected from previous afternoons together. I found myself pulling together ideas of where i want to be, searching for my personal style, and reminding myself of some of my intentions for the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a really fun afternoon. I expressed my creativity, caught up with a friend, and stayed warm on a cold and rainy Saturday. I even had an accessory consultation (check out my yogini’s knitting corner for the details). I really enjoy my mornings, afternoons, and evenings of creative play – knitting, art journaling, cooking. For this particular Saturday, it was a really nice way to spend the afternoon and I’m really looking forward to more afternoons of creative play coming up soon.

When was your last afternoon of creative play?
