Some more journalpages.

I painted over some text.

Although this is my learning journal I chose to paint over some text that just ruined the page. I'm still not sure if that was the best thing to do but it was so irritating that I couldn't resist.
I'll definitly remember this issue so I think it was ok to paint over it.


It's nearly midsummer and we still have cold weather. Every day I read of people complaining because it's too hot, if we could mix we could all be happy. As you see this page is about summer and spotlighting all the good stuff about it.

The other page just happened, but the stamp gave me the idea. I have some letters from back then.( 1926-1929) A Norwegian girl that lived in Chicago and worked as maid for a couple there. She talks about how everything was in a hurry in The US compared to back home. So many years ago and the same issue was discussed as is today. I think she would have been overwhlmed if she was alive today.

And that led me to this page. My husband is a collector and he has almost every Norwegian stamp made. They are so beautiful. Pure art.
In this page there are only old ones exept one.

The last page was made because I needed to try that very old paper and feel if I could use it. Just an experiment.

Wish you all the best.

  1. Many times I paint over things I don't like on my journal pages. I especially like the last page. I like the graphic look, the words, and all the bright colors.
