Yup, it's January which means more stuff from me about the whole new year thing. I don't really DO the new year's resolutions thing, because if I do then they are the same every year which means I fail to keep them on a spectacularly regular basis. But I do kind of evaluate and have a think, and promise myself things for the year ahead.
I don't think anyone can deny that 2016 was a horrible year on many levels. I am hoping for much better things for 2017 but I really do worry a lot about the state of the world...... So my message for 2017 is very simple: You had better be better than 2016.
I brayered a background because right now I am in love with my brayer (or stuck in a rut LOL!) and added some pattern with this very cute layering stencil by Tim Holtz. When you draw round the design with a white pen it looks like daisies :-) What's not to love?
I gave my faceless girl lots of wild blue hair and added extra colour with Polychromos pencils and Stabilo pencil, and then journaled in the hair with a white pen.
This page became part of a class I was teaching at Art from the Heart this weekend ... but once again I forgot to take any photos. Doh! You can check out all of the workshops at Art from the Heart *here*. And just a heads up ... due to a couple of late cancellations there are LIMITED places available on a mini journaling class I am teaching on Sunday 22nd if you fancy it?
And finally, guess what? Wohoo! I am joining the DecoArt Media Design Team for 2017, alongside some fabulous artists. You can check out the DecoArt mixed media blog *here* it is full of lovely tutorials and inspiration.
Byee for now
