Journal 3-project completed


This was a good one.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
It must have been a good journey to do this journal page, you should see my work space.

What do you think?

I love the photo of this statue.
My sister, Carol took it.
I believe it was from a church in Italy.

A bold statement, yes?

Here is the fun part:

Some times I have to search for this, other days, I know it inside and out.

Sometimes I think, "really? why?"

There I days I long for this look of serene contentment.
And there are times the light bulb goes on and I think:

I'm pretty sure that's what this lady is thinking.

Can't you see her saying, "Thank goodness that's figured out! It took long enough."

I can.

That gives me what I need to now go clean up my art room where a small bomb of creativity exploded.


  1. That is a beautiful page and a beautiful quote. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Your finished journal page is just beautiful...so thought provoking and meaningful. Your creativity is just amazing. Now I guess you'll have to go clean up your creativity mess. (Until you get inspired again and make a new mess).

  3. Love this journal Lynn! You are sooo creative! Love the message! So very true! Like you, I sometimes wonder why!! But He sure didn't create any junk!! And we are His crowning creation!! WOOHOO!!

    Did I tell you how much I love this new background, too??

    I also know what you mean about your workspace! Mine gets chaotic pretty quickly when I try this and try that!! Then I have to fix it because I can't function well with it like that for long!! HA!!

    Blessings, sweetie!
    Have a wonderful evening!

  4. Love the unfolding of these pages Lynn ... both posts are really wonderful!
    SO uplifting and inspiring!

  5. Love this one,and my favorite part is the "hidden" message. I love the way you did that.

    I think that when I get my current projects completed that I would love to try some artistic journal pages like you. I don't have your gift so I would never show them, but I really love what your creativity inspires.

    I have a mess to clean too.
    Blame mine on that "sweet" Denise up there...

  6. Lynn,
    This is so beautiful! You captured it perfectly. It just makes me want to cry. i must get this book!
    Your sister in the Anne Lamott Fan Club

  7. This is such a beautiful page.. It has so much meaning that rings true for me... I love it..
