Journal 52 Week 2

Here is my journal page for week two, the prompt was "somewhere simple".  I always find life at the beach to be much simpler, no phones, no t.v. and no intranet. 
I love to get up and out before anybody else is awake, have my coffee and walk the beach.  I usually come back with pockets full of sand dollars and interesting bits of shells, especially if it is a low tide.  These pictures I took last September as the sun came up over the sand dunes.  It was just breath taking and these pictures really don't do that sun rise any justice.  These are just three of about twenty I took that morning.  It was so quiet (no quads, dirt bikes or dune buggies)  just me, the birds and the gorgeous waves.

Yep! I really ready for a beach trip now.

The background was made with Gelatos and spray inks.  After I added the pictures I went around the edges of the page with Gesso and a dry brush.

Let me know you were here with a quick comment and I will try to return the visit.

  2. Golly, Krisha, you take this journaling thing to heart. I love your stylized handwriting in this one. And your photos are stunning, too. I can only imagine how warm and wonderful it is there, right now.

  6. I like the concept of being by the sea but in reality it would probably freak me out. I went to Elephant Butte lake in NM and was screeching about the giant fish in there who were going to eat me. I have some weird fear of deep water (and fish eating me apparently). Love shells and the idea of fresh sea smells and photos. No fish to eat me in those photos.

  7. I just read your question you left about journaling in my AB. To be honest, I am NOT a journaler. When I started the Journal 52 project, I didn't exactly understand the concept, only the idea that I could use anything I chose in a weekly project. I saw it as a good way to reduce the amount of scraps and such I have around the house.

    But to answer your question, NO, I don't add comments, remarks, or journaling to any of my AB pages. I often leave the pages devoid of words, which allows the viewer to interpret the page to his/her liking. That's the reason I started my blog. It was to document what I had done, the supplies I used, and my particular interpretation of the piece I had made. A rather long winded explanation when a simple "no" didn't seem enough.
