Art Journal - You're Gonna Miss This

I really liked this prompt for my art journal from A Year In The Life of An Art Journal.  Anything that speaks to me about my family is worth recording.  Looking back and not having regrets as a Mom is a priority for me.  The day to day grind seems to distract me from stopping to take note of the day - the beauty of the earth, the love of my husband, and mostly how quickly the days go by and the girls grow up.  There is a gift in being able to stay at home and take care of my family. 

Oh ya', does the green clock seem odd right in the middle of the page?  I accidentally knocked over my green bottle of ink.  I painted most of the picture with inks.  So, the clock originally began as a big ink spill.

The Prompt:  Memory Lane
The Song:  You're Gonna Miss This - Trace Adkins
Technique:  photo of a road

I love your personal drawing and journaling Sherry! The way you wrote the title in/as a road is awesome too! Great take on the prompt!

I love your page!!! Isn't it funny that something can happen that is a mistake but it ends up being perfect for the page?
