Goodmorning lovelies, a working week lies behind me and I’m glad to be back at work! I love routine, I love to work in the conservation and restoration studio at the Zeeuws Archief and an additional advantage is that my days off really feel like days off again! Friday is such a day that I can spend in my atelier, doing ‘my own thing’ and as you know, one of those things is to write a haiku to a photo my friend Lena took.
|De wereld beweegt.
Het water zoekt een weg en
de hemel spuugt vuur.
|The world is moving.
Water finds its way in and
the sky is on fire.
The photo was taken by Lena Schreijenberg
I submit this haiku to Recuerda Mi Corazon where our lovely hostess Rebecca brings us all together to share a haiku on Friday: Haiku my Heart
Dutch Dares scrapbook challenge
I decided to stay a member of the DD design team for now – although I have less time I think I can handle the one challenge a month – Dutch Dares presents a theme and a sketch and one can choose to use the theme, the sketch or combine the both.
It was my turn to come up with this month’s challenge and I choose as a theme: “A Special Place” and a sketch
And here’s my take on it.
I combined the theme with the sketch and OH how I enjoyed creating this layout … via a ‘region group’ on facebook (and my uncle, who used to own the nightlife venue where my friends and I went out on friday nights when we were teenagers) I managed to lay my hand on an old photo of ‘café Royal’. Years later I took the second picture that may look as a ‘meaningless photo’ but to me, that parking basement is also a special place… Together the photos and journaling depict a part of my teenage years complete with first kisses and ‘fussing in the dark’…
And here’s an art journal spread I created a few weeks ago
