Back...and Forward

 Journal today.

 Added texture first with Golden's Molding Paste...

...and Dylusions spray ink
in Vibrant Turquoise and Squeezed Orange.

...a little bit of washi tape...
and a new cityscape stamp...
with Staz On black ink pad.

And it seems I always go back to my fave
fine point Sharpie marker in black.
It writes on anything and never soaks through.
Can't beat that.

I am SO loving my summer vacation.
I have to pinch myself
because it just feels too right to be true.

I haven't forgotten that there were many days,
weeks, months
when I thought I'd never make it.
For having been born in the winter,
I really am a summer baby...!!

Remember, my dear bloggy friends:
to take some time to do
what you love
even when you are busy working.
It's so easy to forget...

Much love,

I love this, Kathy!. simplicity with splash of colors. Love the black city skyline, totally gorgeous. I should like to try use white background soon. Btw, your necklace package is on the way, I mailed it out this afternoon :). Have a great vacation :).

Lynn Fisher said...

You are so right Kathy...take time for yourself even f it's a few minutes scattered throughout the day.
So glad you are deep in the enjoyment phase of summer. So many of my friends are teachers and it takes a couple weeks to unwind : )
-Lynn (love the colors you chose for this page personal faves...and I have to try the molding paste texture...wish we lived near each other. It would be fun to go to an art store with you!)

Kathy, the texture on these pages is stunning. I love the city landscape, and the colors... I am a little jealous of your summer vacation. I once thought about teaching just because of it ;-) But I know it is such a difficult, trying career... especially now.
