Journaling

My journal/sketch book lazily lay blank staring at me until.... 

Inspired at a local meeting of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) http://www.saqa.com/, seeing how fellow art quilters Deborah Boschert, Diane Doran, and Karen Schulz evolve their ideas and refine plans as they go from journal to art, I knew had to put this tool to work

So I gave myself permission to journal however I want - not only sketches - but words and images! ideas and plans!  manhole covers and candy! unicorns and glitter! yes, I watch too much tv, but you gotta love Flo!!!

Color scheme emerged serendipitously
yes I really did use a 15 letter word, am I being supercilious?
I'd rather be super silly!!!


"I see circles ... All the time. They're everywhere", kinda like the Sixth Sense, but different totally different!

Circles, my latest delight!!!
  • simple - 1 line
  • eternal - beginning and ending and beginning again
  • moves you - remember "the wheels on the bus, go round and round"
  • embrace you (XXOO!!!)
  • this simple shape opens my eyes to the world, how many circles do you see?

 the O shape
  • starts off options, opportunities and oasis
  • found in the middle of love, mom, now, more, wow 
  • ends our greetings of Hello and Mahalo!
  • needed twice in good, food and cool 

"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour."
