Art For Artsake1st page(only 13 weeks behind!)

I came across a very cool blog this week called "Art and Sole" , where the amazing Darcy is inspiring people to make an Art Journal. Each week she posts a word+definition for you to use as inspiration for that weeks page.
This is week 14, so I have some serious catching up to do if I want to make the whole 52 pages for 2011!!
This weeks word is "TODAY"
I'm a big believer in "worry about it WHEN it happens, not IF it's going to happen", so I used a lyric from on old folk song as my journalling. Every verse ends with the line "Cares of Tomorrow must wait, til This Day is done!"
I really truly have no desire to rush my life away, I take each day as it comes and enjoy the wonders it brings my way. Each day a new adventure!!
As my old Dad used to say "It'll be rayt!" :D

Stash used; Brenda Pinnock dp(scrunched/ripped/sanded+inked), photo of my youngest chillin', acetate overlay(image from Wendy at Digital Doodles),Tim Holtz grungeboard(heart+arrow), Tim Holtz Distress inks
The paper texts are hand written(could you tell?) on a piece of scrap paper I used to protect my table while inking stuff.

Be Inspired.It's fun to just play sometimes! Enjoy :DXXX

ps I used my Keepsake Bookatrix board to cut out the page shapes, to be bound at the end of the year.
