Melange Weekly Challenge, Fly

Here is my Melange Weekly Challenge page for the word ‘Fly’. I find it really fun to work the challenge into my journaling. It makes for a stress free way to participate. If any of you want to play along you are welcome, no need to be a member of the team.
This page was done in my Moleskine Journal. ‘She dreamed of taking flight’, these words capture the feel I have as we enter summer. I long to take off and explore some new place. The traveling itch. When I go I will of course bring my journal along…

Cover Art

My husband has finished his first novel!!! Much happy dancing going on around here! He is now in search of an agent and had asked me to do a piece of cover art for him, along the lines of ‘A Silver Ring’ which was published in Somerset in May. His novel is loosely based on his Uncle that is portrayed in this heroes inspired work. The book has the same title. He really liked what I came up with and I’m hopeful that it will help his submissions to stand out a bit. It can be long process at this stage, so we will sit with fingers crossed. I also wanted to show you a couple of extreme journal pages that I did. These were done while waiting in an airport and I only used things found there, napkins, ticket stubs, newspaper, drawing things around me, and the background is stained with Starbucks coffee! I always carry, a gluestick, charcoal, black pigma pen, white gel pen, and water soluble crayon with a brush that holds water in the handle. All of these pass through security just fine. This is a great way to challenge yourself to be creative. So my friends, go and stretch your mind for a bit of creative exercise!
