I was one of the many amongst us who received the gift of a head cold over the Christmas break. Yet, as my head began to emerge from days of feeling like a broken brick packed tightly with pain ... and mucus [apologies if that's spoiled your lunch], I began to feel my crafty fingers itch once again.
Clearly however, my brain was still under the cold's influence as I just ended up making a journal page reflecting how I felt - and looked -at the time:
I think the journaling speaks for itself:
- Your eyelid skin is a ‘canary in the mine shaft’ when it comes to allergic and irritant reactions. [source]
If the comparison I made for myself - between the colour of my eyes and Rudolph's nose - made it to a journal page ... then surely it's only a matter of time before this new eyelid / canary / mineshaft imagery does the same!
I'll let you know. [No pun intended].
- Do you make journal pages about something that's happening / something you're feeling at that very moment?
- Or do you just take out your supplies and see what strikes you then and there? Maybe it's a colour, an image, a technique?
Maybe they can't be separated.
What do you think?
