Today Mavis writes a few quotes and a series of random thoughts....April 3, 2015, 6:30 AM...Japan is my archetype.....Consider the lilies of the field they neither toil nor spin....Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself - Matsuo Basho....Today's Tea: Tan Yang Jin Ya, one of the finest teas from China, Tan Yang Village in Fujian.....Thinking about Zed and that beautiful kimono I got from him years ago - and the peacefulness he found in his meditation practice....The Japanese know that oftentimes the best way to honor you is to leave you alone....I need a space designed to honor the private experience....Space and time are what people want. 

Materials: Golden high flow acrylic paint, 6x6 Gelli plate, original stencils and stamps, purchased stencil (hand w/ spiral) tea bags, Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, UniBall blue gel pen. Faber Castelle Pitt Artist Brush Pen. 


  1. I'm enjoying these posts, Jan. I hadn't heard of International Fake Journal month, so it's fun to see your pages. So creative and a feast of things to look at!

  2. Jan, your pages are just delicious! I love the layers and depth to each and every page! Very wabi-sabi.


Please leave a comment! It makes me Happy!
