Journaling can lead to a finished piece "outside the book" or it can be used to work out ideas for a project. In this case, it was the second reason. I had a saying in my head and an idea to go with it but it wasn't fleshed out yet.
The page on the left was the original idea and the page on the right came to me as I was working on the final project. Kind of cute together. I've always liked ladybugs.
This is the finished project. It's a canvas board with a ribbon hanger. It's for a friend who is undergoing chemo and radiation.
The Princess Pig cheered me on while she took a nap but roused long enough for a photo! It's hard being a princess!
