Bonnie Rose: Look Closely
I’ll admit it.
I’ve been neglecting my scrapbooks lately. I have.
I’ve been playing so much with color and different mediums, that I’ve neglected adding to my scrapbook albums on a regular basis.
And time is going by.
I used to be such a faithful scrapbooker. So faithful.
Not doing pages in chronological order — because that’s just too impossible for me! — but I used to be a lot more into creating pages than I am now.
Now I’m more into evolving as an artist.
Playing with textures, different mediums, and exploring the color wheel. I am evolving.
Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t feel guilty about that at all. I am evolving. And there are days when I journal, days when I play with color, days when I write, days when I meditate, days when I learn, days when I read, days when I play with canvas, days when I play in my sketchbooks and art journals, and there are days when I don’t create much. I just get inspired.
I am always filling up
my creative tank somehow.
So this morning, I decided to create a new page for my daughter’s album. Something I hope she will look back on and realize how often her mom thinks of her.
It’s all about
looking closely as you travel life’s journey.
