Happy Friday everyone! Back in July, I did a little Flow Magazine haul and bought a few of those lovely weeklies. They are basically one week planners with little illustrations, planner pages, to do list pages etc. Other than the English sample inside the international magazine, the ones offered in the shop are in Dutch.
Although I initially bought them for the lovely art inside, the planner part is relatively easy to figure out. That being said, yes they sort of sat on my shelf, or were used as back drops to pictures, until I realized, these would be fab as a little trip planner/smash book. I love the idea of one trip being contained in one booklet, and there seems to be just enough pages inside.
Any who, I did a little flip of the Flow Weekly of my 16th anniversary / hubby's birthday celebration. We did a long weekend in Las Vegas with the family and fit in exploration time, spa for moi at Canyon Ranch, a fantastic Circ du Solei show called Ka, a little clubbing of all things haha... and of course a lot of delicious eats.
It was such a wonderful little weekend :) Any who... here is the little flip of my weekend fun!
Recently I came upon an amazing surrealist painter named Remedios Varo. She was born in 1908 in Spain and studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. During her lifetime she lived in Paris, where she was influenced by the surrealist movement, and finally Mexico City where she lived and passed at the height of her career from a heart attack at age 55.
Although this is a documentary in Spanish, if you click on the subtitle icon and then go into the menu for automatic translation, you can some what get a gander on what they are saying. Another option to learn more about this inspirational artist is this website.
