Finally! I finished these pages eons ago, but with plenty of family obligations
and other stuff too uninteresting to go into here, I haven't posted since September.
I almost forgot how to do a blog post!
Angie chose White as her color. White is simple (sometimes).
It's serene and pure, and at first it was a bit intimidating.
No hiding behind COLOR! Although as you can see,
some color has sneaked (snuck? no.) into my pages.
The right hand page started as a Gelli print in which I kept seeing
images like fairies, leaves and flowers. I picked those out,
and kept adding other pieces to the page.
I had been looking for a chance to use the beautiful Edwardian lady . . .
As I was gazing at the next two blank (white) pages a song popped into my head.
I've always loved the song "Happiness Runs" by Donovan, and hadn't heard it in years.
Somehow, there it was running through my head!
Happiness runs in a circular motion.
Thought is like a little boat upon the sea.
Everybody is a part of everything anyway.
You can have everything if you let yourself be.
The verse goes (first and last...I think there's only one):
Little pebble upon the sand,
Now you're lying here in my hand,
How many years have you been here?
Little human upon the sand,
From where I'm lying here in your hand,
You to me are but a passing breeze.
The sun will always shine where you stand,
depending in which land
You may find yourself.
Now you have my blessing, go your way.
Since the theme of these two pages is the sea,
I've included a few sand dollars I found on the beach in Mexico.
And of course a little pebble :)
So sorry I'm late posting this, Angie!
Since we are so close to the end of the Magical Journal Journeys,
I was afraid you might receive your journal back before I completed these pages!
Anyhow, only one journal left.
I have Priti Lisa's Turquoise book on my table right now
and will be finishing it up today!
