'Reading'

Reading books is one of my favorite pastimes. Especially on a gloomy sunday when the weather is grey and awful. I like to sit down in a snug fauteuil, having a nice cup of tea,  and to read a story. With Moeska the cat on my lap I am am as content as I can be.

I found some nice quotes, which I would like to incorporate in my art journaling.
The pages turned out to be quite dark, so I used some glimmer mist and added a few sparkling strass stones.

And by the way,  Moeska says hello!

'Study the past' *

When I saw my pages again this morning, it was n't exactly what I hoped it would be. I decided to add a bit of gold color and a few flowers to add some sparkle and I made the lettering a bit darker to make it more visible. I like the result much better now!

'Study the past…'

Allthough I have been very busy this week, I still managed to spare some time to create two pages in my art journal. So glad I had a couple of pages prepared earlier by painting some backgrounds. Since I promised myself to do an art journal page every week,  I had to create something!  Anyway it is very relaxing.

This time I used a quote of Confucius: 'Study the past, if you would define the future'.  I chose a picture   of a painting of 'Megilla' by John William Godward, printed it with my inkjet printer and cut it to the size I wanted, printed another one and used that as an reflection of the first glued picture. It is as if the woman is gazing at herself in a mirror, thinking about the past or the future. It is possible both.

Enjoy your weekend! And if you 're in the Netherlands: it 's 'Museumweekend'!
