Hello!
I am taking part in Laurie's Five for Friday challenge over at her Lone Blackbird blog.
Each friday she will post a topic for a list and all you need to do is create your list in any way you choose.
I have chosen to do mine as art journalling.



This week was five fun things. I really had to think about this one which surprised me. I suppose as I have gotten older I don't do many fun things, or at least what I would consider to be really fun, like things I did in my youth. I lead such a boring life now!
This page already had the painted stencils on from when I was working on something else and used this as a mop up page. I added some spray ink, some washi tape and some stamps and doodled on it with black paint pens and a white out corrector pen.
Why dont you pop over to Lauries blog and check it out?

Are you kidding Sam, you need to swap lives with me for a week then see if your life is boring - LOL. Not that I'm complaining with my life though (well, not much anyway!!).

Your journal page is lovely - I thought at first glance it was a button for the blog you linked up to.

Lovely work, Sam! Hugs, Valerie

Wow that page is amazing - I love the colours, so incredibly vibrant!

Lovely lovely page, Sam. I guess our definition of 'fun' changes as we get older - I have lots of fun rummaging around in charity shops, for example. Maybe I'm not much of a thrill seeker!

Laurie's idea is brilliant, I look forward to seeing what you come up with every week.

Great page - I love how the 'mop up' page turned into such great art. Especially love your black and white doodling - makes the page sing.

thank you so much for participating, sam! your page is like an amusement park for the eyes - you lead the viewer through the space with delight. :-) and i would say the word "fun" definitely describes you!

Mop up pages sometimes turn out better than the ones we spend hours on don't they? This one is gorgeous!

What a fun idea, I'll definitely check it out ;)
