This Friday, my haiku is dedicated to ‘Spadoman’ Joe
This one’s for you Joe – may friendship and healing surround you!

I stay at the beach with this next page… it’s the first page in the book
I made in Zeeland last weekend.
(Size of the pages: 13 x 17 cm - 5.12 x 6.7 inch)
The scrapbooking paper with seahorses has been in my stash forever!
I finally used it to cover up the inside of the cover. The photo was taken
by Elvy (put on a particular position her camera takes pics that look like
watercolour paintings. Awesome, isn’t it?) That pose is typical for me
and I love how she captured that with her camera!
I started next page last weekend too.
Margot had brought some little templates with her (6×6 inch) and I fell
in love with this one. I also glued the image on to the page but I got stuck
after that… I finished the page yesterday.
Size: 29,7 x 21 cm - 16.9 x 8.3 inch.
(For the Dutchies: ‘Puffin’ is the translation of ‘papagaaiduiker’ –
the name of the bird)
For you who need inspiration to art journal: how about making a page
using the new prompt at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal ?
THE PROMPT: Pretty
THE SONG: Fuckin’ Perfect by Pink
PRODUCT/TECHNIQUE: Pink Paint Dripped like Blood
The design team created some awesome examples to inspire you, so
hop on over, take a look and play along! You can take all or parts of
the prompt, and MAKE THEM YOURS!! You don’t have to use the swear
words or you can use them all you want. Just make this prompt into
your art! Then go to the AYITLOAAJ-site and share a link to where
you’ve posted your page on line. Easy, isn’t it?
I started this page with a lot of enthusiasm. Painted the background green
and transferred a funny photo of myself. I also dripped some pink paint
from top to bottom. Next day I looked and… bleeehh… didn’t like it at all!
I threw in some pink spray ink – which turned out to be purple.
I stamped pink paint with a toilet roll. I put washi tape at the borders.
It became one, chaotic page and I got mad.
I wrote the text.
I didn’t like that either.
I got more mad.
I colored the circles (pink water soluble crayons) and outlined the text.
After that, the page was full. I didn’t like it but there was no room left to
add anything else. I considered to cover the page with gesso and start over,
but then it hit me: this f**ing page is f**ing perfect for this prompt –
and I’m not 😉
(Size: 21 x 19,5 cm - 8.3 x 7.7 inch)
Thanks for being around today!
I hope you liked this ‘glimpse into my silly life’
It’s healthy to act silly every now and then –
now go and have a wonderful weekend.
(Throw in some silliness!)
