Hello all and welcome to week two of the Season of Connections. This week kicked my butt so I didn’t have as much time in my art journal as I thought. I did manage one spread in my Connections journal:

I went with a quick rendition of a continuous line self-portrait and some writing.

“Tempus fugit” means “time flies” and “Memento mori” means “remember that you are mortal”. I put these in my art journal as a reminder that things are constantly changing.

 Good or bad, they never stay the same.

The roses are there to remind me to “smell the roses” and take the time to look up and see what is happening.
I also managed a mixed media self portrait in what is turning out to be my Fire Burning Bright journal. This is still a work in progress, but I have an idea of where it’s going.

Stickers are by Elly and the Mucha is from an old notebook cover. Khaleesi approves!
