S is for ?

In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them. This page had a little booklet sewn into the signature and the picture and words.

I was looking for something simple for this page.  I have to admit I was in a hurry and needed to do the page in a short amount of time.  The 'live, love & take pictures' made me think about skills which led me on to strengths and spiritual gifts.  I have done spiritual gifts tests and the top one is always Administration.

I've also done the Strengthsfinder survey which came out with these 5.

I put a variety of pictures in the little booklet - views, my work etc.

I printed out the words and pictures and stuck them into my journal.   The thing about pages like this is that I can always come back and add more design.

Thanks for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.

It's finished!

I have finished my final piece for the Master Practitioner Module 2.  Sadly it's not a great photo.  The piece is based on a walk along the canal.  You can find out about the sketchbook work and samples here.

Now to start Module 3.

Thanks for joining me today.

Further celebrations

I had such a lovely day celebrating my birthday last Saturday.  I took a group of my friends to Littleheath Barn Studio where Liske showed them how to print on fabric with wooden blocks and Thermofax screens.

Each person brought a plate of food and we had a lovely lunch together.

Ange made another birthday cake - chocolate this time.

And some mini sponge cakes.  I think we should put her forward for the Great British Bake Off.

Then Liske showed us how to use our printed fabric to make little lanterns.

 We had such a fabulous time.

Thanks Liske for a great day.  And thanks to my friends for celebrating with me.

Thanks for joining me today.
