Reflective journaling ...

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get away for the weekend with some great friends.  I spent this time reading, reflecting, eating chocolate :) and had a go at some journaling. 

Here's my first attempt, reflecting on Matthew 10:29-31.

I used Smooch Spritz, Distress Inks, stamps and journaling pens...

I love the shimmer of the Smooch Spritz (hopefully you can see it in the photos).

and another attempt...this time using mainly watercolour pencils and journaling pens...
This one was very basic but I found the whole process very therapeutic.  There's something about creating as an outlet and expression and not having to meet any deadlines.  It was more about the process and not the finished product. 
Anyway...enough rambling -  will definitely be doing it again!

I so enjoyed my 'time out' but when I got home reality met me at the front step (quite literally) and had me thinking.....when is the next weekend away!

Take care and happy creating!
