Flashback Friday: A Canary Song brings Joy #art # ink #canary #pets

ArtJournal_4_4It’s the simplest things in life that are worth celebrating the most. This Flashback Friday post is proof that the smallest things can bring us the most joy. It’s hard to believe that our little pet canary, who we lovingly named Kernel Sanders, has been with us for a year. Who knew such a small creature could bring so much joy and life to our home? For the past year we have listened to our little guy fill our home with his cheery little songs, watched his funny antics as he splashed in his bath, and hop around his cage like a mad birdie while music played in the background which I think this is his way of dancing.

Kernel has watched us from his cage during the happiest of times and some of our saddest moments this year. Regardless of the moments we had, he happily chirped away in his cage often bringing comfort and companionship during those heart-wrenching moments.

I am so appreciative of our per canary and the smiles he continues to invoke in us. Sure he can be messy and get water all over the place when he is taking a bath, but these are such minor annoyances compared what he has given us. So I dedicate this entry to our smallest companion best little pal – Kernel Sanders.

A LITTLE ABOUT THIS ART JOURNAL PAGE

This journal page came together very quickly for me. I started out using Dylusions ink sprays for the background and used both white and black Stabilo’s All Pencil to sketch our new addition on the page. I loved the distressed look of the ink and pencil so much, I decided that once I added the wording that I was done. It just felt right.This journal page came together very quickly for me.

So this concludes another FlashBack Friday. Until nex post…
