Prepping pages….this is a new one for me! Since I will be traveling and you know how boring airports can be….lots of waiting, lots of people, no space, uncomfortable chairs, travel luggage, delays, deadlines, drudgery! I’ll try to make the best of it!
Sometimes I find it hard to read a book at airports, too much going on. I get too distracted to follow any decent story. I like to “do” something besides just people watch, but I get a kick out of that too!
I drew a bunch of random circles and colored them in with watercolor pencils! I thought the watercolor pencils will work well with these art journal pages, since I can write over them. Unlike markers where the ink is too dense.
Prep Page 2.
No real direction here. And that thing in the middle looks like the loch-nest monster. Maybe I’ll give him some eyes.
Chose to work with more white space here.
Just a little pep talk here.
This page isn’t done….hopefully far from it. I think the best pages are those that have been enhanced, colored in, marked up and where you can glimpse a small train of thought. The pages where you can hardly recognize the finished product from the base layer.
With these pages all ready to journal on, all I’ll need is a few pens and markers. I won’t have to lug around my usual stash. What a relief!! Now, to get over the shyness of journaling in public. Can you?

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
