Happy February my friends, I hope you are all well.
Just dropping in with something I actually finished. I say that because I seem to have
several unfinished projects on the go and am having a hard time deciding where to go
with them. Do you ever get like that?
This in an art journal, I insert mixed media paper, water colour paper and some of my inky papers in the journal for artsy friends to create on. Or not, doesn't matter :)
This one I am keeping for myself because I gave all my others as gifts.
I love the bright colours on this journal too, lots of layering and finished up with some
You can still take Roben Marie's workshop on her process to creating these journals. I took
it last summer and really enjoyed it, I just put my own style to the finished product which is good, because we don't all want to look like we make the same journals or papers :)
The thing is you can use these papers for backgrounds on atc's or collage, and they are a lot of fun to create using spray inks.
I have had a hard time focusing on art to be honest, maybe that's why the unfinished projects. We found out a couple of weeks ago that my sister has breast cancer and there has been a lot of different feelings and emotions flying around here. I am not sure when her surgery will be, but they are thinking a lumpectomy to start with. It's such a shock when you get news like this, then after a while you start to accept it and do what needs to be done. My sister is being really good about it, so I know she will do well :)
I am happy that January is over now, it just seemed like a very long month.
How's things with you?
