So, here's a little sneak peek at my art journal! I'm loving exploring 'Delight' using mixed media and other juicy ideas for discovery. In the example shown, I've handwritten various things about life that bring me delight such as birdsong, a glass of wine out on the patio on a warm Summer's evening, family picnics etc.
Delight - the dictionary definition is: pleasure, joy, satisfaction, happiness, ecstasy.
We all have far too much to do these days with various of stresses and strains but you know sometimes, having a look at our lives and the many things that delight us can magically transform us and leave us feeling uplifted, renewed and grateful for what we DO have and also more equipped to deal with the here and now.
Also, these days I find I'm really curious about my childhood, special days like my wedding day [sigh] and the birth of our children - 'my boys' [aww]... However, it's not just the 'once in a lifetime' things I remembering, it's also the everyday happenings that touch my heart and it feels wonderful to be able to capture snippets of my life past and present in a way that feels creative, meaningful, inspiring and playful.
