I had a lovely lovely day at Art from the Heart yesterday on an art journaling play day - 5 hours of journaling fun with a great group of people led by the wonderful Dyan. Admittedly I didn't get as much done as I could have but that's because I was...
1 Talking too much
2 Singing along loudly to Garth Brooks HAHA!
3 Talking too much
4 Eating delish food from the new cafe downstairs
5 Eating delish rhubarb crumble and cream, kindly brought along by chef extraordinaire Olive
6 Still talking too much
However I did get as far as this on the next two pages in my huge A4 Moleskine. I have to be in the right mood to journal on them so I shall wait until the time is right.
You might guess by looking at this next page that I have a birthday coming up this week. 43. FORTY-THREE!!!! Yikes, how did that happen? I think I blinked and missed a decade.

I'm still loving the new inks by Altered Originals at Art from the Heart. I love the different effects that I can achieve with them such as this, a fine mist of colour over the top of acrylic paint. It really helps to blend the colours on the page and bring everything together:
Luscious dribbles like this:
And more dribbles like this. You can't have enough dribbles:
And yesterday I learned something new. I had already tried mixing my inks with Pearl Pigments Powder for a bit of Mica shimmer, but I discovered that you can also top that up with water to create a lighter effect. Aha! Love it :-)
I am enjoying working on a larger scale at the moment in my A4 Moleskine, but for some reason I always work on single page spreads. I noticed that everyone else at the Journaling day yesterday was working on double page spreads. Not sure why I work like this, but I think it's because I like the look of two different pages together like this:
Right, I'm off. I'll publish these again when I get round to journaling on them. Byeeeeeee.
