Laundry & Art journal page

When I woke up this morning and looked outside, I saw a typical Dutch sky…
Blue sky, white clouds, the sun was shining and wind was blowing
so the first thing that came to mind was: LAUNDRY DAY!

When I closed my eyes,
I saw images like this

Sweet dreams…

This is more
what it looks like
over in my little

(Only I have
white sheets
hanging on the
drying frame
right now.)

Between washing and hanging laundry, I finished the Leonard Cohen
Art Journal page I started this weekend.

This page is inspired by lyrics of the song “The Future

Used materials:
Heavy gel medium (shiny)
Acrylic paint.
Cut out circles from patterned paper
Dictionary paper
Black sharpie

(“Repentance” =
“berouw” in Dutch)

I bought the gel
medium last week,
and I’m very
content with it!
I like its texture –
see the strokes
of the brush?

OK now, this is it for today.
Off to take the dry clean sheets from outside and put them back on the bed.
(I love sleeping between clean sheets that smell like wind and blue skies!)

I’ll be back on Friday with a brand new Lotus Paperie lay out; you too?

Je t’embrasse.

    Je Art-Journal page is helemaal super geworden!! Wat een grandioos idee om woordenboek-papier te gebruiken voor de letters! Ik kan je niet beloven dat ik dat idee nooit zal gaan gebruiken…Zal de bron erbij vermelden hoor, 😉
    Wat de Shabby Chic challenge betreft: ik zou het geweldig leuk vinden als je mee zou doen!! Je hebt de hele maand de tijd hoor, dus misschien heb je ergens een heel klein gaatje in je drukke schema??? Kijk maar.
    Fijne dag in ieder geval! En bedankt voor je bezoekje op m’n blog!
