Wait, what? That last part is only my friend, Sharon? Oh okay, never mind...
Although this trip was planned in advance, I wasn't sure until the last minute if I would be able to go. At a photo shoot a few weeks ago, I injured my foot - turns out I have plantar fasciitis. :(. But I missed the girls, despite our crazy fun weekend at the Encore Dance Crop a few weeks ago:
So luckily, my bags were still packed from that trip so the stress of a last minute decision to go was reduced slightly. I did, at the last minute, throw in my Gelatos and some art journaling materials in case I didn't feel like working on something that a required concentration (or sobriety).
Once there, we spent so much time catching and laughing that we didn't get started until late on Friday. I got an idea in my head to do a quote and some Zentangling ( is that a verb?) so I searched my Pinterest boards for a quote.
And then the fun began.
Once I had all the lettering done in pencil, I used a combination of my Sharpie and my favourite journaling pen, PaperMate Flair marker. Once to lettering was done I started to add some tangles to a small circle... And immediately hated it! So I cut a circle out of book paper and used Gelatos for a watercolour look - instant love!!
Unfortunately, I had a spill and discovered the Flair is not waterproof! :(
However, those who know me know that I always say that there are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents! I used the bleeding to inspire me to add some strategic circles and rearrage a few letters. The smudge on the outer border was instantly covered with washi and voilà!
