On "Colden" Pond






One of my favorite movies is ON GOLDEN POND.    I must tell you the truth - I made an art journal page but what I wanted did not turned out but when I turned it up side down I found something different.  Oh lucky me!!

Hi there, what a fabulous JP, the colours are fantastic, it certainly looks very "colden".
You were asking if I'd ever thought of doing a journal and the answer is no, but who knows now that I have stopped work and have more time it's something I might have a go at.
Hoping you are well and getting back to normal after all our family visits and the festive season, Kate x

A wonderful page and it reminded me of climbing up the mountains in the Lake District and reaching a frozen Tarn near the top of the mountain. Great memories for me.

Thank you for joining in at Art Journal Journey

Love Chrissie X

OH! Sandy, I love your page, and what On Golden Pond inspired you. LOL... I could not help but smile when I read that what you wanted to do did not turn out as it should have... Does it ever turn out as one wants? ...... In my case, it never does. Sending love. xox

Dorothy Donna Parker said...

ha ha ha! You do make e laugh, dear Sandy. It's magic when something doesn't work and it works so beautifully in another position. I'm in your cheering section my little piece of apple pie! LOVE it ... and your sense of humour? Simply Superb! Love and hugs, Donna

Annie said...

It looks pretty amazing. And definitely looks like you know what you're doing! Most of the time nothing I do looks like it does in my mind. So usually it's better or it's rubbish bin worthy. Beautifully "colder" is exactly how this page looks.

Sara Barker said...

Sandy, I tried turning my head so I could see what your original plans are, but it sure looks like a Cold (en) Pond to me, even if I'm standing on my head! I think you are in the right place, dear! LOVE these colors and the snowy banks! Your pond looks downright REAL! Well done! Big hugs!

cathylynn said...

Your Colden Pond is done fabulous! I love the colors and this would look great in any position, You should know that us crafters always change as we create. I think that's part of the process. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it) lol. Keep up the fantastic art. Sending hugs with love, Cathy

Christina C. said...

Also one of my favorite movies, Sandy! Love you journal page....so serene! I find it quite relaxing just gazing at this page.

Sue from Oregon said...

I can relate to ending at a different destination but this is just super!!!!

Redanne said...

Well done you for turning it, although without standing on my head I think it probably looks just as good the other way up too! I just love your 'pond', the colours are fabulous and the mirrored image in the pond looks brilliant. Personally, I think you did a fantastic job on your journal page! Hugs, Anne xx

Lau W said...

Hello !
This is fabulous, My God, so lovely ! Love the reflections, the colors (brrrr it's cold :-))). A serene scene, congrats my Sandy ! xxx

(often for my cards, I say "I'll put bright colors", and end up in very light colors hihi).

Rainey's Craft Room said...

Love this, it looks so calm and serene. How fabulous that you were able to retrieve what you thought had gone wrong and create this lovely journal page. That is the beauty of art - there is never a disaster just an opportunity to create something else.
Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Myrna said...

Like someone else in your comments this reminds me of a hike in Colorado. Hours to get to the top and last part climbing boulders to get to the most serene lake surrounded by mountains. It was just breathtaking! Isn't it fun to realize that with art journaling there are no disappointments either you can do it over or as you did flip it around! Your colors send chills down my spine as it is below zero here. You made an amazing page Sandy! Well done my friend!

Marilyn said...

I love this! The colours are fabulous and I really like the sparkly paste.
I don't know Sandy... I tried to visualize this the other way around (upside down) and I can't. I think this is how it's supposed to be but to be honest, with your wonderful flair, downside up or upside down... it would look great either way!

SARN said...

Looks fantastic Sandy. All icy blue and snowy. SUPER.

Paper Profusion said...

This is stunning Sandy - beautiful depth and chill. Yep I remember the movie - loved it too - seems so long ago. Saw Jane Fonda on TV the other night at the Golden Globes ceremony - She looked fantastic tho her makeup may well have been layered very thick. She wasnt looking too impressed with the antics of the horrible R Gervais and his nasty hosting and I shared her disdain! Enjoy your weekend. Nicola x

Zoe Tant said...

Hi Sandy I'm from Christmas Card Club and popped by to say hi. Love your card it is a stunner. See you again soon. Zx

Pat said...

Lovely Journal Page Sandy, the colours are beautiful (whichever way up). Have a good weekend.

Kelly Neis said...

You never know how art will turn out, I am the same way. This one is gorgeous and looks like you totally planned on winterly scene. I love the chill and peace it has and the colors are fabulous. The texture is beautiful and pulls it all together. Perfection. Is your son and his wife giving you another grand baby? How fun. Hope all is well with you and wishing you and Art a Happy New Year.
Hugs Kelly

Hi Sandy
Terrifically atmospheric card in beautiful shades of blue.
Best wishes.

butterfly said...

The view across your Colden Pond is stunning, Sandy - and the cold colours are icily brilliant... I wouldn't want to dip my toe in that water - I think I'd lose it to frostbite. Stunning textures and so atmospheric ... a really wonderful page of art (and who cares which way up it started?!). Magical.

Hope your Sunday is being good to you.
Hugs,
Alison xx

Neesie said...

How fortuitous Sandy,
To just turn something upside down and ‎voilà! It's gorgeous and I love the words. Very clever indeed.
I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a fun-packed week ahead ;D

Lisa Minckler said...

Well I for one don't know what the heck you were going for, BUT whatever it was, I don't care that you didn't achieve it because what you've got here is AMAZING! It honestly looks like you set out to create this beautiful pond with trees and snowy ground and the fabulous reflection. It looks a genius sat down and knew exactly what she was doing when she started. I'm happy to hear that the art took you on a journey instead and you had fun just playing with your paints. It really is a fantastic piece of art and of course your humor is HILARIOUS!!!
Big hugs to you Sandy,
Lisa x

Colden-pond - HAH! Serously, you turn it upside down and it's fabulous??? Love those blues. Have a lovely week, Sandy!

Charlene said...

I haven't seen that movie is ages! I should watch it again! You've captured it beautifully!!!

Jackie said...

Art journalling isn't my cup of tea, but I do love this page, whatever it was supposed to turn out like, I do love it as it is!
Thank you for visiting my blog, and for leaving a lovely comment on my card :o)

Mrs.B said...

HI Sandy, don't know what you had in mind, but this is absolutely stunning. You've created a fabulous view and I love the reflection on the icy blue water of the snow covered hills, so pleased I'm not there - it looks too cold for me!

Bonnie said...

I don't know what you're doing but I can tell you that I like it! Looks cold and icy to me!

Pam Sparks said...

I haven't tried the journaling either Sandy! This definitely portrays cold! Beautiful work Sandy!

MaryH said...

You're in the right place, kiddo! This looks tremendous & oh, so ice-y. Clever play on words (and I like Golden Pond too! one of my fav movies of all time. Love Hank & Kate together). TFS & Hugs
