Art Journal meanderings ...

So I escaped tidying the studio for a couple of hours today by going to the Bridge (wine bar/ cafe kind of a place) & playing in my art journal ... this is what I did today :

I like the idea of adding tags, pockets, doorways etc into my journals, similar to the altered books that I do ...there will be many more in this journal I think !
I've actually just about finished the studio tidy up now & it's Soooo much better .. I actually feel like creatuing again ... I can't work in a mess, I love a tidy desk lol :D
So hopefully now this is done much artwork will follow !
thanks for stopping by x

What I get up to on a 'day off'

So the kids were back at school ... DH was back at work & I went out with my art journal, It was SO right after weeks of being stuck at home through illness etc ... So to cut a short story even shorter here are some of my pages .. some are complete some are not but thought I'd share the process with you anyways :o)
*Think we've still got a few places left on the Art journaling from scratch workshop next week if you fancy having a go at this fab & fun playtime ..see the link at the top of the page for workshops for more information :o)
Thanks for stopping by x

Happy New Year ....

I'm finally back in my studio after 4 out of 5 of us having Flu, Christmas & New Year ...My mojo took a backseat for a while, but today I have been back playing & it's a GOOD feeling !
I've been working on a mixed media, beeswax canvas and I've also begun designing my own art journal sheets ...this is partly what's on the desk, also one of my art journals being prepped ready to take out to a cafe tomorrow once the last of the kids returns to school, I wanted to go before they broke up but we were all ill, so I've been waiting three weeks & can't wait any longer ... I NEED to go lol :D

Thanks for stopping by, sorry it's a short & sweet one, but some is better than none I reckon lol :D x
