simple things



sometimes i think journal pages are a lot like ice cream sundaes.
the simpler they are, the better.  
a little (or a lot) ice cream, and a lot (or a little) of chocolate sauce......





and when you realize that the journal page you've just created
coordinates beautifully with your glasses,
well, i'd say that's the cherry on top!!

i hope your weekend includes a perfectly
 coordinated ice cream sundae!!

{this journal page was created in my pocket watercolor moleskine using
pitt artist pens and a 3B graphite pencil.}
