Hi all! Just dropping in to share my latest journal page. Things are hectic here. We are leaving on a trip next week, so personally and professionally there is a lot to get done. Throw in a major national holiday before we go and there are just a few days to wrap things up before we head across the pond for a few weeks. More on the trip later…
Nothing radical or earth-shattering about this page. Just a quote I heard somewhere last week that stuck with me: “If you find a road with no bumps it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” Being someone who almost never takes the easy route this resonated with me. I can’t say why an octopus seemed like the thing to illustrate the page. I think it might have to do with the amazing video posted below.
To make this I played with: painters tape, tissue and art paper, book pages, modge podge, acrylics, spray inks, sharpie, white out pen and plastic netting.
Could this be the inspiration? Apparently, they do sometimes come up on land. Amazing.
