Journal backgrounds TO GO!
We're off on our hols soon for some much needed sunshine, but I have a dilemma. Much as I love being on holiday I get twitchy without all my art stuff. Can't sit still for more than two seconds (ants in my pants as my Mum has been saying for the last 42years). What's a girl to do? Don't know if I can get away with taking my acrylics in the suitcase so I'm compromising. Thought I'd paint a few backgrounds ready to go and then I only need to fit my PITT pens, sharpies, pastels, felt tip markers, charcoal pencils, water soluble crayons, pritt stick and a few images in the suitcase LOL (Do you think he'll notice?!) Better not forget to pack the journal.
This is completely backwards to the way I usually journal and it's been quite liberating. I usually know what I'm going to journal about and try to make the background and images relevant, but not this time! I'm just slapping it on in a happy fashion. Maybe I should always do it like this? Oh, and I lost my one and only bit of sequin waste so I had to make do by punching some holes in a scrap of card with my crop-a-dile but it worked ok.
Bye for now
