It’s Sunday afternoon as I write this blogpost and in a few hours the European Championship soccer match Netherlands – Czech Republic starts**… when you read this, it will be old news who won and which country is through to the last round. I did watch a lot of the matches, especially in the week that I had to stay home from work due to cataract surgery. The surgery went very well but I had to keep calm in the day’s after (don’t bend over, don’t lift, don’t exert too much.) I couldn’t do much more than watch tv so I was glad some matches were played and broadcasted in the afternoon. I also watched a lot of (old) episodes of “Escape to the Country” – I fell in love with those lovely cottages in the Welsh countryside! But at the moment everything gets overshadowed by the Tour de France, my favorite annual sport event, hence the background page in my Chronicles art journal that’s on my desk right now.
(**Yup, I saw the match and know the score…. and you English people: congratulations!)
Due to the cataract surgery I wasn’t able to work in my art journal much and when my eyes got better and days passed, I did a little bit at a time, careful not to bend over or work too long at my desk. That’s the reason I used big bold images and lettering, and I kinda like the results!

The images I you see in Weeks 22 and 23 were inspired by the art journal pages Nancy Baumiller @crowaboutstudio published on instagram. I discovered Nancy and her – mostly “Zetti” – pages a long time ago but had not seen her latest work… I was surprised to see she creates pages in paint.
