Flow (and an art journal page)

Have you ever had one of those days,were creatively speaking , things just seem to fall effortlessly in place?Now this may not seem like a strange phenomenon  or even an idea worth bringing up. However, if you are like me,a mother trying to have more than 15 minutes of uninterrupted time to create, it's like trying to finda diamond buried in your hall closet. The odds of that happening seems slim at best.One day this summer,thank the Lord , I found it!  . Zaria slept in  longer than usual and right about now the time she did wake up ,  Joshua , who had gotten up earlier than he normally does, actually went to sleep.
I couldn't have asked for a better block of time had I prayed for it!  With only one child to entertain/distract at a time  I managed to:

  • make a couple of sheets of patterned paper
  • make back grounds for my art journal(the above page was one of the results)
  • Begin a writing project for church
  • I even had a moment to check out this blog
The last time I flet this good about something related to creativity , is the one time I had more than $35 to spend at Hobby Lobby and they seemed to have a sale on several things I was looking for . However this was better because I didn't have to spend a thing to get the same result.  So how do you feel when you get that block of uninterrupted time to create  or just be?  What was the results?

Project Life App : Digital Scarpbook Page

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

Project Life App : Digital Scrapbook Page

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
