Well, it's at least 2 weeks since I had my paints out and I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms LOL. Last night I managed to get the kids to bed at a reasonable time (all routines seem to go pear shaped at Christmas...) and then I snuck into my craft room and got messy. This is the result - a page for my art journal. As you can see nothing too deep and meaningful here, just a few smaller things that I will try and do in '09. I'm not making up any grand new year's resolutions because I know full-well I won't keep them. Not sure if I can keep some of these smaller ones........ drink less??...........eat less chocolate??.........get out of bed earlier ha ha ha! Anyone who knows me well will know that I will find that one particularly difficult. I added 3 boxes after every statement so that I can return to this page next December and see how many I managed. The boxes are for yes/no/sort of.
I used my Claudine Hellmuth acrylics and LOOK I did it in BLUE although I did sneak a tiny bit of pink in the corners. I got a new Faber Castell Pitt pen which works great for journalling, even on these semi gloss paints. I doodled round the edge in black and white, and added an image of a crow (don't tell me it's not a crow, it looks like one) and gave him a black and white hat. A little touch of zetti. A couple of rub-ons and ta-da! Finished. I shall report back in 12 months on this one to share whether I have been successful or a dismal failure!
