A Piece From Heaven

Mad Girl's Love Song II This page is for TGIF and was the first page that I created using the extreme visual journaling techniques from Juliana Cole's "Empty Raw Creations" booklet. This is actually just the warm-up activity, but I took it a few steps further, adding extra ephemera at the end, simply because it was hard to stop! Today I'm going to spend the entire day in my studio for my own Extreme Journaling Retreat. I hope to finish several pages, and I also want to get a lot of work done on a big painting I'm doing for my son. I've planned to spend a day alone painting all week, but I've had so many unexpected errands, trying to get caught up after our trip, things to select and pick up for the house we're renovating, but today is going to be all mine!

I've been wanting to try Art journalling for some time now and this is very lovely and inspiring. The idea of a retreat really appeals to me. Do you stick a "do not disturb" sign on the door and lock yourself in with lots of chocolate and a bottle of wine?????
