When I was a vendor at a Holiday Bazaar a few weeks ago, I brought my mandala coloring book and distress markers to keep me occupied. I got a lot of playtime in, and also sold three journals to old and new friends. One of the mandalas had butterflies in them, which was so pretty.
This weekend I decided a good way to keep the butterflies a memory for me was to cut them (along with the flowers) from the coloring book and glued them into my art journal. Next I cut strips of paper that I used to make my mini notebooks and added them to the outside of the spread. These mini notebooks sold well at the Bazaar; maybe because they were so inexpensive. Extra sets of four are currently in my Etsy shop.
I watercolored the background of the spread and added grass. If you know me, you’ll know I enjoy to journal with visual scenes. Doesn’t this look like a Spring day. Wishful thinking…
Monday morning I decided to write something about the early winter blizzard we had in Oklahoma during the weekend, with 4” of snow! That’s a record for this area in the month of November!
