"Be kind and resist making assumptions about people. Each of us lives with choices --and the outcomes of other people's choices. And sometimes that is messy, painful and unpredictable. Resist judgment -- because you cannot know what you would do until you actually decide."
Teresa Robinson

Pages from the hardback I'm altering into an art journal called the noticing journal

When you are new at art journaling, there's a mystery about how art journal pages are created. I don't actually think magic is required, but there is a certain magic that happens when you are journaling or drawing or painting. It's hard to describe, I guess some people would call it happiness or flow or focus or being in the moment or maybe zen. But it's just good stuff.

Work is finished. Work begins. Work continues.

Love your pages. I am not there yet. It seems like I put to much thought into it, and they just don't get enough layers or something. But I love your blog, learning lots!!

I am glad you are getting away, rest and reflection are so very necessary and so hard to find/ capture.
I enjoy visiting Daisy Yellow and I am always inspired.
I see an authored book in your future.
Safe journey's . Enjoy!

I love the backgrounds, especially the blues in the 2nd page -- that dark part in the middle really pulls me in. One of the things I've learned from your site is that it's OK to do a background first. Sometimes I've found that it may turn out to be just part of a background, or maybe even something I like all by itself and don't feel the need to add to. Analagous to the quote above: sometimes you don't know till you decide!

I love the blue in your backgrounds. It is almost haunting. On both the backgrounds.
