Omnijournal - Blues - The phlox has filled all the spaces under my thin sprawling shrubs making such a delightful view; and I found these bachelor buttons (corn flowers) in a field I never saw them growing before. Truly sweet surprises.

Journal -- After spending MUCH time on sorting and divesting many of my art supplies and now knowing where I can find each item I've kept!!, as well as being inspired by the work of Yippie Cahier's 'Omnijournals-- I thought I'd try to incorporate some of the BOXES of collage, stamping, ink and ephemera I still have into my journals.
Here's my first attempt ... I did a pen and wash of the wonderful Vibrunum abloom in my yard and the surprise Crimson Clover blossoms that popped up after 6 years since I planted some..I used card stock, watercolor, ink, tags, cut-out of tag holders and 'flowers' given to me years ago by a dear friend, some art paper and some clear 'words'.

Journal -- Cauliflower. More salt play.
It's been an intense week of spring cleaning, divesting, and reorganizing my art closets into a manageable space. Doing art has had to take a back seat while I combined two overflowing closets into one, cleared space in 4 rooms, and divested a HUGE pile of art materials to an organization that recycles and reuses such things in art classes and creativity events. Good to know my beloved supplies are finding a new home to continue bringing joy to other artists.
This cauliflower was painted using salt to create the 'clusters' of florets ... fun trying to make salt behave! LOL
