Art Journal Journey

For today's art I have chosen to do a Matisse inspired page. Actually it really chose me. As I set with my journal.... sort of watching TV. I was thinking of the dental work that I need to have done.... sooner rather than later... and the cost involved. How I wish the "Tooth Fairy" still visited and would leave a large amount of cash to pay for all this work. 
I had already decided to do something inspired by Matisse and so the 
appeared in my journal .

 If only she would appear at my home ♥

This week I harvested what I think will be the last of the Chocolate Mint for the year :) 
Will be bagging it up into teabags as soon as it's dried out. A hot cup of Chocolate Mint Tea on a cold winter day is soooo good ♥  I am amazed at the herbs and flowers still blooming in my garden this late in the season and after several frosts and a couple of hard freezes. The mints will be the only thing I harvest this late... since they are so aggressive and I don't mind if I kill off a few of the plants by harvesting so late. 
Today's random thoughts...
