Be Yourself

I always struggle with journalling, especially when using my own hand writing when completing a layout so I was challenged to undertake the  Kraft+ January Challenge which required us to use our own handwriting. So, this is my entry for the challenge which includes a gorgeous picture of my youngest daughter who is now 40. Wow! how time flies.

Wanderlust 2016 - What do I really want...

I love these prompts by Kasia from #Everything Art as they make one think even though sometimes the answers are very obvious.

Everything Art - 2016

My journey with Everything Art has kept me very busy for the month of January. I have completed three mixed media journal double pages and one still life painting, listened to numerous video classes several times and generally had a lot of fun, oh! and learned a lot.
This is my still life acrylic painting.

And this is my journal page where the inspiration was a word to describe what we were feeling. My word was "challenged"

Everything Art - Wanderlust 2016

I have joined Everything Art - Wanderlust 2016, a year long journey consisting of videos from 24 guest teachers and 2 resident teachers, one each week.
This is my first project, a travel diary made from scratch, taught by Kate Crane.

This one is a challenge inspired by the quote " Sometimes what you're most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free", using the composition  building techniques taught by Kasia Krzyminska.
