Do you know I spend my whole life wishing for more time? I like to imagine that if I had more time I would create art endlessly and I would never run out of ideas :-) As you know, this week I lost my voice completely - not even a squeak - for three whole days! That stopped me dead in my tracks as I can't teach a class with no voice so I had to come home from school. Great - an ideal opportunity to make art. BUT, somehow I didn't feel like it. I didn't feel ill exactly but I felt (and my sister has the perfect word for this...) limp. Yes, I felt limp. Couldn't be bothered to do anything which is sooo unlike me as normally I can't sit still for any longer than 5 seconds. I tried a bit of journaling but I'm not completely happy with it but here it is anyway. A page I created using my favourite Teesha Moore image, and here it is once I scrawled on it:
Here's another page from my journal using one of Tim's new stamps. I just love this bunny and wanted to put him in my art journal. This page is about the non-arrival of Spring here in the north of England! Still no frogspawn in the pond! Maybe the frogs died in all the cold this year. Hmmmm...... time will tell....
When my 9 year old daughter said she would join in the calendar challenge I went along with it but I didn't think for one moment she would keep it up. But, you know what? She has! Her great opportunity to say 'I told you so'! I'm not allowed to help her of course. Oh no. That would put an end to it immediately. So, I just stand back and let her do her own thing. And here is her March page finished:
And her April page ready to go:
Finally I have been tagged by Sarah aka Mucky Pup here. I have to show you the 10th picture in my art folder so here it is. This is one of my early ATCs as that is where my mixed media journey began. I made this on 18 April 2008 - I haven't been doing mixed media art for that long really. Some of my early attempts really make me cringe but I looking back at this one I still quite like it. I made the background using the emboss resist technique, one of my favourite techniques at the time.
Right, that's me done for the day. Happy Easter day everyone.
