"So, tell me again, do you really like this face? The spread is kinda new for me but I can't get down and dirty yet. I can't and may not be able to get past "pretty".....not that my pages are pretty, but you know what I mean."
That's what I said to my friend Zorana.
and she said, ".............. she's great! And I do get the 'pretty pages' syndrome. I can't get pass that either. Maybe we should decide that it's okay to like pretty pages. I mean..... why would we want to make them differently? "
Well, Miss you-know-who....my muse....was obviously reading my e-mail. I know she has gone crazy and has really been jerking me around with the missing 'A'. I can hear her laughing right now as a matter of fact.
So anyway, I was really trying to play ART "out of the box". You will agree that this is very different for me.
By the way, the name of the book that I am using to make this visual journal is Chance, Luck and Destiny.
So, Friday at the desk, I started flipping through a magazine that came in the mail. It was one that I look at the then toss. Anyway, all I could see were these scrambled letters that said spelled Sharon. I had already prepped this page and it started out as "pretty". But then I saw those words......A Scrap of Paper. OH MY GOSH, this book is talking to me.
I must just glue these scraps of paper down and then see what happens.
New Challenge.......down and dirty.
I think I rescued the page and I'm thinking, it was suppose to end this way......out of the Box.
One more thing, I hope my friend, Zorana, doesn't mind that I shared a little bit of our conversation. She is moving today and on my mind. xoxox
