Self Expression

I’ve been playing about in my art journal. I love the fact that I can sit quietly (or not so quietly if I fancy the music on) and just play with paints, pencils, crayons and whatever else I fancy and really lose myself. My mood has been a bit low of late, blame it on the weather or hormones or both so I have not been the most chatty person to be around but sitting with my art journal has been great therapy for me. I feel calm and peaceful just playing away.
For this page I started out with the image which is from Crow About Studios. She’s funky and I love her orange hair.  I took colour inspiration from the orange, red and yellow in the image and I also tried the image transfer technique using gel medium. It’s the first time I’ve done that and I really like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I think you've found your creative spirit, same as Suzy .... Art journaling really suits you x

  5. It's a wonderful page. Brilliant bright colours.

  6. I love your page, lovely warm and happy colors. I use my art journaling in much the same way. It does help get rid of the thunder clouds in my head. And a little bit of sunshine, be it sunshine on a journal page =), makes everything better.

  7. I can totally identify with that sentiment! Love the warm colours.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment I do appreciate it :)
