{points of two week #4: kindness mission}


Points of Two is an experiment in journaling with myself and Roben Marie! Check out our archives to see the previous weeks' pages.

This week was based on the following quote:

"I learned long ago that those who are the happiest are those who do the most for others."

Booker T Washington


And what's funny is we both brought someone cookies!

This week, I've been focused on setting the groundwork for a more consistent blog, starting stock for etsy, working on custom projects, doing samples for classes -- anything BUT journaling. So when the opportunity arose to make this page, I just sat down to play...and how nice it was!

I often go between randomly-spread paint and using a brush; for this page, I wanted chunks of color that I then wrote on or layered with papers. And I found my labler!

Part of getting ready for classes is using photos, which means I've been taking many, many more. I took this shot of my friend J (also seen up there in the banner!) while she was concentrating on beading her necklace; I loved how into it she was and her hair was really cute, so I snapped a pic. I then went on to take tons of super macro shots of beads because they looked pretty. What can I say? I do what's fun.

Blues and golds and stripes! All things I did to relax into my art. And stamping, because they were there. Nothing too deep; I kinda just went with what I liked and somehow pulled it all together.

Next week: Around the House. Take a pic of something in the house that's meaningful and journal about it. Won't you join us?
