Note to self

Small journal page spread: intention setting for the new moon,  which was at 2.24 am, 16 july 2015,  but I didn't do the page until after I came back from my walk with Toby, around 11 am.

'Walk more, eat less', art journal page, mixed media.

I thought I'd give intention-setting a go in my little art journal.  Its a bit like a new year's resolution but you do them at the new moon.

I hope it has an influence on my habits so that I walk more and eat less.

I did some writing on the page and then covered it with brownish textured tissue paper.  I added the elephant which I got in a Tag swap, and the green rectangle is actually an ace of hearts playing card painted over.  The rest is a bit of doodling.

I am making postcards too as I am in a postcard swap.  They should be done by next week.  I'll post them when my partner receives them.

Sir Joshua Reynolds birthday today!  Portrait painter.  Born 1723, England.

Here is a portrait by Joshua Reynolds from wikimedia

That's all for now!

P.S,  I got interested in new moon journalling from +Effy Wild .  Visit her moon journalling site at

I so adore the lovely elephant, June, it's a lovely journal spread, a perfect way for affirmations, I'm also on a walk more and less carbs plan. It helps to write it down. Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie.

Love and hugs
