Hello there sweeties, everything OK with you still? I sure hope so! I’m doing allright and spend most of my days in my atelier, especially on rainy days like today. Since it’s the first day of the month, I plan on writing a newsletter but I might postpone that and do it tomorrow ’cause I always write TWO newsletters – a Dutch and an English version – and it’s a lot of work so I might instead finish the art journal spread that is on my desk. (If you want to subscribe to my monthly newsletter, go HERE for ENGLISH and HERE for DUTCH– if you do that now you may be on time to receive the July-letter 😉 )
I mentioned it already: there’s an unfinished art journal spread on my desk – and a bit more ‘stuff’ too.
See those small photos on the page? Yes, that’s me. I went to the hairdresser and got a complete new look! LOOK!
Djeez…. the last time I painted my hair must have been in the eighties, when I did all kinds of weird things with my hair. After that, I never-ever had it paint or bleach anymore – and now this! I am so very happy with this look – thanks to the lovely stylist Demi who works at hairdresser’s Wolter Vos.)
There’s another challenge up in the scrapbooking challenge group where I am a guest-designer: Dutch Dares The theme for this month is: scraplift a layout that one of the team members made this year and use an old holiday photo. Here’s my take on it.
Detail/journaling: “On holiday in France, dad always wanted to go up some Tour de France mountain. We, Mommy, my brother and I, trusted blindly that our old car would make it and that Dad, as a former car mechanic, knew what he was doing but still it was pretty scary, to drive up and down those steep slopes.”
And here are my latest Chronicles spreads

I leave you with this, I have some more art pieces waiting in line but will save those for another day… when I look out of my window I see the sun began to shine, it’s lunchtime and I will get me a sandwich on the balcony and spend the afternoon creating. Thanks for your visit, have a wonderful day. Stay safe, go create!
