I was talking to a friend today about art journaling. That got me thinking about this page I did recently. I thought I would share it.

I took a long nap today leaving me wide awake.  I’d love to be working on a page, but I am out of computer ink. I can’t print any photos to continue the vacation journal. Maybe I should just do another one. A non vacation journal. I am way behind on that.


Another Art journal page-Fly free


Vacation Journal pages 1,2


I don’t know why it took so long to start my vacation smash journal. Fear mostly I guess. Materials cost money and money doesn’t grow on trees.  Is it really that though? I am addicted to pinterest where I see so many beautiful page layouts. I know mine look nothing like that. They aren’t perfect by any means. They aren’t even overly creative I don’t think.  So why bother? Why bother if they aren’t perfect? If they don’t live up to some invisible and unattainable standard?

Because it is a creative and great way to record and share about our vacation. Also because nothing ever has to be perfect or even is perfect.
