    Jump In!

     "Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness
    has never danced in the rain."
    ~ Unknown

    Swimming season begins. The pool is a crisp and clean 76 degrees yet I usually take a ridiculous 10 minutes to get acclimated, easing in bit by bit. Yesterday things changed. I dared myself to jump in. Standing at the edge... anxious, wavering.

    Splash!

    The shock of cold water; rejuvinated + refreshed + kids cheering.

    Jump In.

    Are you wavering as to how to start an art journal? Don't let the concept of a crisp clean beautiful duck-white paper in the suede-bound journal psych you out.

    Fun. Color. Words. Paints. Tape. Glue. Paper. Pens.

    Just grab a piece of heavy paper, 5 things to get color onto the paper (crayons, rubber stamps), things to stick to the pages (receipts, gum wrappers, fabric scraps), a method of attaching this stuff to the paper (staples, electrical tape, painter's tape, glue), mix it all up on your paper.

    Wow this pic actually looks like an abstract artwork. And I really like the quote from the unknown author, I can agree to that as I have played in the rain once before.
