Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. Mine was lovely and relaxing. Life is a little more relaxed around here lately.
So, as the title suggests this post is about art journaling again. Most of you will be hoping for some quilt making tales. Well for the moment are none because art journaling has been my solace during these strange times. Rest assured though that these art journal pages are giving me inspiration to take this craft and translate it into arty quilt making. So, you’ll have to keep tuning in to see what happens, if anything.
Today’s effort started out like this …..
And now it looks like this …..
As always, I kept it simple. For those of you who have never done this type of craft, it’s a lot easier than it looks. After the doing the background I simply layered some paper cut outs, a bit of Caran Dache water colouring, pencil doodling and water colour pencil shading. You can get quite good results from simple art supplies that you already have in the house. The internet is full of inspiration and suggestion. I can recommend this type of artwork for anyone who is having a hard time finding something they can concentrate on.
For anyone who may not be able to keep up with what day it is …. it’s Monday. I’m getting a little better with keeping track of time now. I have kind of settled into my new normal. I haven’t quite found a proper routine but ever so slowly things are falling into place. The only thing that I do on the same day every week is put the rubbish/recycle bin out for collection!!!!! I used to do my laundry on the same days every week, well that has gone by the by. If nothing else it’s quite liberating rebuilding a schedule.
Well, my friends, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
