Life's been a bit hectic lately (do I KEEP saying that?!) Finding time to play in my journal has been hard, and I miss it. So, I managed to squeeze a little playtime in earlier today, in between a visit from the bathroom planners, and seeing to my kids' various needs :-) The page isn't quite finished yet - I'm waiting for a quiet moment to journal on it.
So, yes, we are in the process of having our bathroom done ... it's going to be a major renovation job and I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end but I find it hard to get excited in the bathroom showrooms.... Seen one toilet seen 'em all ..... And it's soooo time consuming .....
I'm stuck on these grungy, painty, messy backgrounds lately, and I LOVE making them. I like to get my hands in the paint and feel it, and I'm loving doodling on everything and everywhere after being totally inspired by Dawn Sokol. I'm stuck with this colour combo of pink, green and turquoise too, but I always get stuck in a colour combo ... it will pass LOL!
I made these cute little houses to add to my journal pages. I am drawn to houses .... I think it may be because I am a home-loving cancerian :-)
If you are a member of the very fabulous 21 Secrets, then you may have joined me for a live chat last night. If you did, thank you so much, it was amaaaaazing! I couldn't type fast enough LOL! I scrolled back through afterwards and realised I had missed a few comments / questions, so if I missed yours please do pester me here. When I first agreed to teach as a part of 21 Secrets I didn't really know too much about it, but I can honestly say it has been the best experience. It has been really wonderful to connect with so many art journalers and see and share so much fabulous art. (Still 6 months to go if you're thinking about it!)
And finally, this weekend I am going to teach at a mini retreat at de Craftorij in the Netherlands WOOHOO! I'm so excited. I was there a few months ago and had an amazing time with the very enthusiastic Dutch girls. Hope to see some of you there for some very messy, painterly, colourful fun ;-)
