I missed last Sunday as I spent the day driving home from Montreal - an eight hour trip. We had spent almost a week there, attending my father-on-law's funeral and being with family.
In the car, I actually made a few more small zen cards (on old business cards - great way to use them up).
They were relaxing and fun to do.
This is a new challenge through Bernice at "Newly Creative". I had started this challenge at the beginning of the month but am now returning to it. This is the 2nd day - "Creative" - using plastic wrap on wet paint.
Here is the background I created:
Then I added photos of what I am thankful for and 2 quotes.
(This journal page is also being linked for Journal 52 - using photographs)
Full Flower Moon Dreamboard
The 14th was the full flower moon and I finally created a dreamboard. The question to focus on was" "How do you wish to bloom?"
Writing and art are where I want to bloom, but as well I want to thrive and live my best life.
I was able to make some Heart Inchies:
Spring brings flowers and here are a few more from our gardens:
I have been absent from my blog for a short while. My father-in-law was ill for awhile, went int hospital over 2 weeks ago, but then passed away May 5th. We spent a week then in Montreal, for the funeral and to be with family. It was a tough week.
But I am back and ready to get back on track.
Today has been cloudy and rainy, as it has been for the past few days. But what a day - Montreal and New York start their series today in Montreal. Then at 6:18, California Chrome may make it 2 out of three on the march to the Triple Crown. An exciting day indeed. I'm rooting for Montreal and Chrome to win!
I have some shadows I took a while ago to share.
In honour of Chrome - another horse photo:

This past week I worked on a few collages, but the main creative projects were writing.
I am behind in the weekly challenges, but I thought the new one for this week would be a fun challenge:
I made a hand print on the painted background, then brainstormed what we can use our hands for - I ran out of space, not ideas!
Bernice at "Newly Creative" has started a new challenge for May, on expressing gratitude.
The first project was to create a "Give Thanks For" journal spread so that each day you can express something you are grateful for.
Here's my May Calendar for the monthly calendar challenge at "Kathryn's Wheel"
Had to share some of the flowers sprouting today! Yeah for spring!
Chasing shadows has become a necessary occupation. It is often the first thing I notice when composing a shot. Most times people avoid them, but for "Shadow Shot Sunday, it is a must.
Here are a few shadow shots from the past couple of weeks..
