How Do I Begin

Today I want to share an art journal page that I created. This page came about because of a post that I put up in one of the facebook groups that belong too. The title of this post was suggested by one of the ladies in the group for our journal page to get us creating. So from the words How Do I Begin I went on to have fun.

This journal page started a little differently to how I normal start. Sometimes writing down how you feel helps you move past the thing that is blocking you. I wrote down my feelings on my water colour paper and because I did not necessarily need it on my page I covered it with gesso and then some paint.

I had so much fun creating this page, my hands were stained for a couple of days afterwards.

Some Days

Some days I just don't feel like creating, some days I want to create but the mojo is not there, some days I want to create but nothing works and some days it just happens. Lately I have been in the I want to create but the mojo is missing, so this morning I was asked to create a sympathy card. I decided to keep it nice and simple.

 Really love this colour combination.

All products used are Stampin' Up: Ink - Island Indigo and Pool Party, Stamps - You've Got This and Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Cardstock - Whisper White

Poetry and Hearts

Poetry and Hearts that is the new challenge at Show Us Your Stuff for the month of May.

Sounds easy for a challenge doesn't it and so it should but me being me made it harder that it should have been. First I had to find the right piece of poetry. Rose are Red, Violets are blue is the first thing that came to mind, I mulled it over for a little while but then rejected it. My Country (I love a sunburt country, a land of sweeping plains. Of ragged mountain ranges.) by Dorothea Mackellar was the next poem that popped into my head, love this poem but I just couldn't picture how it was going to work. I decided that I need to search the internet and found Dr. Seuss. Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive, who is youer than you.

I had every intention of creating a layout I even started it but just couldn't work it out in my head. Will work on it during the month and hopefully come up with a completed page to share.

Instead I created a journal page.


Products used: stampin' up decorative masks - hearts & stars, whipped spackle, water colours paints, prima art basics - heavy gesso, kaisercraft paper - art of life  6 1/2" pad, stampin' up - tags and labels framelits dies, the resin rainbow - continuing circles black, charms creations - heavenly hearts, mixed media paper.
