This summer is going by in a blur of playdates, outings to museums or parks, water fun and meals at restaurants. We've had lots of occasions, visitors and special events where we end up out somewhere. I think we cram all of our social life for the year into the months of nice weather. In the winter, we tend to hibernate.
The top art journal page is in progress. I found it while looking through some old art journals and I never finished it. I like the tie-dyed colors a lot in this picture, which were made by painting watercolor on paper towels.
The bottom journal page I made by spraying inks through stencils. After it was dry, I took it with me on a long car trip (I was not driving!) and added the collage pieces and doodles with pen.
The quote spoke to me. I find it hard sometimes especially with Facebook and blogs to not compare myself to other people. Lately I've been having a hard time seeing everyone's awesome vacation photos. But yet, I still go online far too much.

Playing with pattern is a simple way to create collage elements when you are stuck for what to make. Create patterns using watercolor paints. After they dry, tear or cut up into shapes to use as elements for your collages and journal pages.
