After the ICAD Challenge ended I took an impromptu blogging break. It was only going to last a week (that was my bday week) but then the longer I went the harder it was to get back into. Week 31 of Journal52 is 'friendship.' I got stuck and stayed stuck for 2 1/2 weeks. Plus I'm in a love/hate relationship with my journal right now. As you can see it's busting at the stitches and getting really stiff. I won't make a journal with this paper again unless I make one with fewer pages. But it's all a wonderful learning experience.I love the pages from the side and I look forward to making the cover once it's finished. This thing is going to be so thick!Here's week 31. I used watercolor and acrylic paint. It's totally abstract and nonsensical but it was exactly what I needed to get out of my rut.
