The fireworks crackle around me loudly, but the big trees block most of the lights in the sky from view. My 12yo son stays at the computer in protest of the consumerism and wasted money blown up in flames, and my husband would rather watch the fireworks on TV. After shuffling around alone and trying to set my digital to slower speed (don't try to learn to use your camera during the event in which you are attempting to gather pictures!) I settle on hanging out for a short while outside and then settling in with the newsfeed-celebration.
This art journal spread is one of my favorite, white pages painted black with craft paint and then liberally doused with childhood photos plus doors and taped hinges.
