Art Journal pages...

some AJ pages/ backgrounds

waiting to be completed...

these pages were done at different times...
have been pretty busy lately...
will be leaving tomorrow morning to Yunnan, China again..
Although we'll be busy with work
but I am looking forward to meet the wonderful people there...

This quote from the Dalai Lama represents my sentiments right now...

"It is important to understand how much your own happiness is linked to that of others.
There is no individual happiness totally independent of others"

Yunnan, and our friends and our work in Yunnan makes me happy...
and although the birthday celebration next week may be different this year, but hey, it's the best
birthday present ever...

Take care and be back soon...

Tea and Kimchi..

Today's tea is a mixture of dried red dates and longan with radish kimchi.

Brew red dates with the longans for about 10 minutes
and add a dash of pine nuts

sounds like a Korean themed evening? Pretty much..
we love korean food and it's very convenient to purchase ready made authentic kimchi paste and other ingredients for a Korean meal.
 well I hope you've had a good start to the week and go check on Kimmie and my Tea Tuesday
friends for a lovely tea day and creative art...

stay happy!!

PS: I'll be away again next Tuesday (for work) and may not have access to the internet
but will catch up next Sunday. :)

Pay it forward.....

Yes we're back and I've been:

cleaning up
doing the laundry
nursing a back injury
listening to Christmas carols
filling up my travel journal
prepared some textured backgrounds on canvas boards
trying to making some collages
catching up on emails at work
wading through my travel photographs,

and found this lovely quote:

"There is a wonderful mythical law of nature
that the three things we crave most in life...
happiness, freedom, and peace of mind..
are always attained by giving them to someone else.."

"Ascension"  8" x 8" collage on cold press paper

this piece was created with this background.
I printed the background on normal paper and applied Polymer Medium onto it
which made the colors looked deeper. 

this is in high res  you may wish to download this. Enjoy!!

" We see that life, composed of this mind and body,
is in a state of continual transformation and flux.
There is always the possibility of radical change. 
Every moment, we are dying and being reborn, 
we and all of life."
