my art journal has been falling apart at the spiral binding
so I took it apart to reinforce the edges
I took 1 inch strips of paper, folded them in half, and glued them to the hole punched edges. Then I hole punched them again.
.... and reassembled the book with the newly reinforced pages ....
... this was my finished page today ...
Art journaling is a wonderful way to put my feelings down in a sort of obtuse code, known only by me. Unless I explain it, the journal entry's interpretation is completely open and flexible.
Today's page is about resisting my automatic role as wife/mother while school is out today - and making myself virtually unavailable for mundane tasks - instead immersing myself in creating. Have I been missed? Breakfast and lunch happened - the dishwasher was emptied - laundry is being done - and none of it by me.
