|From Week 1|
like just yesterday I made the decision to try Art Journaling this year. I am having a blast. My goal was to learn a new technique each week. That is not happening, I simply cannot find the time with everything else going on but I am still hoping to learn as much as I can throughout the year.
This week has been a very trying week. I spent some time in Atlanta, Georgia with a friend at the hospital while her father fought for his life in CCU. I had to be home by Monday (I was scheduled to work at Pinkie) so I left on Saturday to visit with my son in Bowling Green on the way home. Got home Sunday. Monday morning found out a friend of mine from high school, her son had been in a horrible motorcycle accident. A couple hours later found out he didn't make it. A few hours after that my friends father died. Two in one day! What are the odds of that? Now, add in that my grandfather died on the same day three years earlier. Come on now, that's a lot to deal with.
This is silly, but my puppy was spade on Wednesday, when I dropped her off I had my first breakdown from all that has happened. All I could think is, "if something happens to my dog"! I think that was my breaking point. Anyhow, she's fine. Crazy fine, actually.
Same day as Miss Pepper's surgery, found out my brother is having some addiction issues and has been admitted into a rehab clinic in his area. I knew he had issues, finally he's taken some action and hoping and praying he can face some of them and begin a path to recovery.
Now, if that's not one heck of a week I don't know what is! This week's card is a reflection of dealing with the many things going on right now.
Now, for the back of my card. I simply wet it down and started adding paints. I used three different colors, a coral and two shades of teal.
I hope you all are having a better week and learning a little something new every day.
