Art Journal Friday - Stop and Smell and the Coffee

When I want to smell the calming aroma of my favorite coffee...I can turn to this page in my art journal. It was fun because this particular page in my Smash book had a liquid theme, and months ago, I wrote a quote on this page about water, and that is all it had on it, until this week.
Real coffee beans
I was in the kitchen, grinding up my starbucks beans, and making the coffee. A few beans had spilled onto the counter, and I picked them up and realized that they needed to go in my art journal! And honestly, the aroma is amazing on that page. Of course I added some packaging from my coffee, and also from a tea I've been enjoying lately, and even the Bath and Body Works gift card I got in my stocking for all the other liquids that are calming and amazing. This page is so me, and so fun.

Eat, Write, Dream, Sip
