Hi there sweet ones… pfew, I made it to my blog! You know those days that you keep on running behind – as if hours fly like minutes and you have the feeling there’s something wrong because ‘how can it be afternoon already?” I have one of those days, in fact, all week went by like that! Did I even visit back the deskers that payed me a visit last week?
To save some time – in trying to get my mind to fit with the clock – I won’t type much today and just show you some photos, ok?
This photo was taken last week and it’s very special, ’cause usually I don’t sit at my desk in the evening (or did you think I drink wine in the morning??)
I came across this picture on the internet a while ago
…and it inspired me to use those kind of lettering in my art journal
The Chronicles of Marit 2020 – Week 23
I thought I’d use my white marker to fill in the lettering but that didn’t work well (the ink was not opaque enough) so I took a fine brush and paint to fill those words (twice!) Now that I write this down: that must be the reason I have the feeling I keep running behind; it took me ages to fill those lettering!
And here’s another small collague for the old/new project
Notes from the land of the screaming seagulls V
Thanks for visiting my blog today, I hope to find time later this week to visit you back. In the meantime: enjoy your day, relax, breathe, don’t hurry, be happy!

Hi Marit. I really like the sentiment on the Woody Guthrie page – I realize it was the script you liked, but I confess I like the thoughts. Too many folks out there love to belittle others… Let’s make positive comments. Well done on the hard work to get the effect you wanted to achieve – no wonder you feel like the day is running away with you when I read how much work you put into that one piece.
Take care. Stay safe. God bless.
I totally agree whith what you say about that Woody Guthrie quote Margaret! I not only loved the lettering but it’s a strong image because of that text too!

lovely words and i love how you have taken inspiration for your page. Have a great week . soojay #17
I have replaced into lockdown time so well that I no longer care what time it is, nothing to get ready for, so WOYWW means at least I know what day it is, lol! I wouldn’t blame you for having a glass of wine in the morning either, sometimes it’s gotta be done!
The lyrics of that song are fantastic, Woody Guthrie was a genius.

Hi Marit, great pieces as always. Laughing at Thinking you drink wine in the mornings! I hate it when days escape me like that- you look back and wonder where all the time went. Stay safe, Have a good week, Hugs, Shaz #5 X
Jo Betts says
Lovely work Marit – what patience you must have had to deal with that lettering – well worth the effort. xx Jo
Heather Marshall says
Hi Marit, sorry for the late visit. I fully agree the hours just disappear, but I can see why your lettering took so long, having to go over it twice, but it does look very good. I did wonder about the glass of wine in the morning… 😀😀 have a lovely week and stay safe and well, Heather xx #4
Not sure I will ever visit my blog again either in this heat, it’s too hot to think! 🙂
Summer hugs to you.
Susan Renshaw says
It must have taken ages to fill in all those letters! What patience you have!
I love the Woodie Guthrie quote, I hate listening to songs that bring people down, etc. There’s one Justin Bieber song that I really hate, about how “my mother never really liked you anyway”, it’s so awful. But the lettering is also something I noticed, and you did a great job using it in your journal. Sometimes we just have to spend the time to get things the way we want them! Have a wonderful week, Lindart #29
Your pages are always fantastic, Marit, and so different from anything else I’ve seen. White lettering can be a real pain, and going over the whole thing must have taken you hours! It was certainly worth it in the end because it looks amazing.
Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi x #26
