Week in A Life Art Journal Day 3 (Quiet Time)

This week, inspired by Ali Edwards' Week in a Life project, I'm featuring pages from my Art Journal which reflect typical, daily activities.  They are examples of using an art journal as a visual diary. Today I took a little time for myself.  Background is paint with pastels worked into the corners for emphasis. Miscellaneous clipart images and yellow pastels stenciled on top.

I really struggle with 'my time' and not feeling guilty - something I am working on!

A good thing to think about. I was brought up believing I always had to be doing something "useful" so it has taken me years to understand that doing something I enjoy, just for fun actually is useful.

Do you use a watercolor pad for your journals? I usually make my own - on a smaller scale. But, I have been considering different options.
