Day 3: Give Me Wings

Give Me Wings

This joyful spread started with the image of the little girl.  In the magazine where I first saw her she was jumping into her dad’s arms in a swimming pool. On the very next page was the butterfly.  It wasn’t very hard to put those two pictures together in my mind and only a little more challenging making it all work on the page.

Butterfly Girl

The phrase is from a song by Ali Burns, though the full verse we sing in choir has a more bluesy quality than this picture suggests.

Lyrics Give Me Wings

I also went back to yesterday’s spread because I just wasn’t happy with it.  One of the things I like about an Art Journal is that it is pretty easy to change a spread.  You can pull something out, or paste something over.  Here is version two of Day 2:

This includes a postcard showing Pt. Montara Light Station which is where our hostel was located.

I added one seal photo, moved another, and removed two. Duarte’s Tavern is where we ate lunch in Pescadero.  We were quite hungry after our hike to see the seals and inhaled the shared burger and shared slice of blueberry pie which was served complete with a candle for Rem’s birthday. I was practically licking the plate clean before I even thought of taking a picture.

However, as it was his birthday, we had dessert (banana and Nutella crepe) with dinner (chicken, spinach, caramelized onion and Swiss cheese crepe) and I managed to capture that:
