I've finished the journal page I started the other day. The inkling I had about what the writing would be about pretty much came across as I expected. Sometimes the writing portion of a page doesn't manifest the way you think it will. Once that pen is in your hand and you touch it to the paper your thoughts take over and the results are sometimes surprising. Obviously the phrase that had been running through my head (It's none of my business what you think of me) was strong enough that it ended up making its appearance on the page like I thought it might!




I love to create all different types of art. One of the things I do on occasion is wood-burning. The piece shown is one I burned free-hand, with no pattern at all. I started with a nicely sanded wood slab that still has the bark around the edges, burned my design into it then completed the piece by adding color with fluid acrylics. I like using fluid acrylics with wood because they add nice color while still allowing the natural wood grain to show through.

Once I get a hanger mounted on the back of this I'll be adding it to my new shop. I hope someone loves it as much as I do and decides to make it a part of their home.
