I always try to be honest and open in my journal pages. My pages from the journal that I've been posting here the last couple of months are full of pain because I have been in a lot of pain since June 9th. I always try to be honest and open when it comes to art journaling. I post them here not looking for commentary but to encourage others to be open and honest in their journaling and so that some folks understand that journaling isn't always gumdrops and roses. My motto with art journaling is if I can do it, so can you.
Looking at this page, I remember exactly how I felt when I created it and what was running through my head. If anyone is wondering what the hearts are at the top of the page, they're from a Valentine's clear plastic goodie bag. I used micro permanent glue dots to attach them.
David, Tristan and I went to The Academy last night to see Jerry Lewis. It was fabulous. He was dead on, quick witted and very informative. I enjoyed hearing his stories about his behind the scenes work as a filmmaker. The evening didn't disappoint in any way! I'm very thankful that we had the opportunity. I'm also grateful that The Academy keeps ticket prices affordable. For $13, the three of us can go to see filmmakers talk, see clips, films, etc... We try to take advantage of living in L.A. as much as we can! Now if only Tristan would appreciate it. Hopefully, someday...
