That's also a way of looking at things :) - Art Journal spread

That's one way of looking at it...
I wanted to make a page on housekeeping and this is how it turned out. The men are collageimages I received in a swap and the awesome Woman, don't you just Love her expression, is from a swap with Lori Dennis, thanks Lori. I've gessoed the background of my canvas journal and glued down bits and pieces of scrap paper, gessoed over the top of it and used Distress Stains, Caran D'ache and oilpastels to colour and distress. Paint dabber arond the edges, some black pen doodling, and some stamping.

The Quote is from Arthur Helps: The man of the house can destroy the pleasure of the household, but he cannot make it. That rests with the woman, and it is her greatest privilege.
Thanks for looking,
hugs and smiles,
