Soul Journaling - Doodles

I should have spent more time today working on art, but I'm exhausted from working in the garden all weekend, and have got "weekend warrior" syndrome (strained lower back from planting about 20 plants including some large palm trees, bug bites, and a lovely bruise where I took on the edge of the barbecue grille one too many times) Add to my excuse list that a friend sent me one of those "why don't you join Facebook" notes, and although I've always maintained that social networking websites are for kids...well, I have spent far too much time today messing around with it.

Anyway, Kathryn's prompt for the Soul Journaling group was to create doodles and put in your journaling somewhere in your doodled lines. I kind of took it to the next level.....see above. I have to admit, I LOVE this page! It's all about my fantasies of exotic foreign travel, including India. Unfortunately my husband has beyond no interest in visiting there (although he's a great and patient travel companion in all other respects) so this may have to continue to live in the realms of my fertile imagination. Perhaps for the best, I'm sure it doesn't really have spice-laden breezes wafting in from the swaying palms of the Indian ocean....

Your page is beautiful. I love the sense of freedom and adventure. Oh, and the glitter too :)

Oh Jane, I love the vision, one partially shared by me too. In reality I know I'll never go there and India is probably far too crowded and hot to be enjoyable! But, hey, dreams are great, and it makes for a wonderful doodle spread :)

This is a gorgeous page. I love the colors and all of the interesting details.

Sounds like you've had a very busy weekend. I'm happy that you made time to play with the Soul Journal prompt!

Your India tribute is wonderful. Love the gold pen? or is that a special paint? my hubby is fascinated with Caribbean so we head there every anniversary in Dec for last 5 years. I would love to visit China, maybe I'll do a page on China. You have me thinking. thanks.
