Looking for balance....

This is a journal page from January but works for me today. Been trying to put balance in my life, it's not been easy lately. My mom has stage 4 lung cancer and I feel awful about that. I picked up Life is a Verb--NO COINCIDENCES--Patty Digh's book is written in memory of her step father who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and lived only 37 days after diagnosis. This book is about living with intention and taking action. I started the 37 Challenge on Tuesday and committed to free writing for 10 minutes in a journal every day. That's it...just one thing...not 50...just one thing that is doable every day ;-)

Check it out.... Post a comment if you want to take the challenge together.

Playing in my journal....

I've been lazy lately and way over due to post. I've been drawing is one of them. It says in the heart, "always be happy". Not always easy to do, but always a choice. I am experimenting and finding my style. This little angel is in progress. I drew her in pencil over the background page. Then I gessoed (is that a word?) over her. The pencil blends in with the gesso but I like the effect. I went over her face in ink last. Next to do is find the flesh tones, but I'm liking the way she looks now. What do you think?
