Let's Get the Shovels

The prompt for this week's Journal 52 page was "Friendship".

I was very inspired by THIS PIECE from Michelle Mathey.  (FYI, her blog is called Pigment of My Imagination which is such a great name!)  I really loved the square of watercolor on the page and how she worked over stinking AWESOME!  So I spent a good part of one of my evenings making watercolor squares (and squares with my Inktense pencils as well)...  I love this look so much I may have to make a dedicated journal just for the this type of page...  I really do adore it!

So then I was scrolling through Pinterest, searching for a good friendship related quote, still not sure exactly what direction I wanted to go, when I came across this:


And then I had a direction...

"I know exactly what you're thinking..."

I thought it might be too incriminating to actually put the shovel bit on the page...but you know the truth...

It really is fun to have those people in your life whom you can share a look with...where you know exactly what the other person is thinking.  It doesn't necessarily mean 'get the shovel' could be about that hilarious joke from two weeks could mean 'did you see that hot guy over there?'...but whatever it is, you and your friend know without a doubt what the look means.  It's one of the best parts of having a close friend.

So my page is dedicated to fantastic wordless conversations between really good friends...and perhaps, to a lesser extent, a silent homage to shovels...

I'm not quite sure...


  1. Sweets, *giving you the wordless look* and I know you know what I am thinking. So hugs, Pamikins

  2. Awesome art! Isn't it odd what we say to our friends, that we wouldn't say to anyone else, for fear of being locked away, either in jail or a mental institution! :)


I'd love to hear from you!
