Spring is Here

The air smells sweet here in AZ, and the temps have been in the 80s. Spring is here. Of course, the temps are expected to go back down, which is GOOD. Not ready for the heat of summer YET.

This leads me to this journal page that I don’t think I ever posted. I may have posted the girls but not the whole page. I did this one quite a while ago.

Lately, I’ve felt as if I’m in a creative rut, something of an impasse. I want my pages to look more layered, but when I do that, it’s not quite what I want. Crazy? Yes. Uncommon? Not at all.

We all go through peaks and valleys with our art. This is good. We need to evolve in our creativity. I want to evolve, but not totally lose my style either. Sometimes I go back and look at past pages of mine just to keep that sense. This is one of those pages. I like that it's simple, but doodley. I like the use of the vintage photo and the writing.

The struggle to evolve is a continual one. I guess I just need to go with the flow. Literally!

Have a great Wednesday!
