Well I saw Sandy Poppins this morning and she said - get your blog updated and I thought - do you know what I think I will! Didn't think I'd have a lot to put on but pleasantly surprised. This page was started some time ago but I didn't complete it, it's in my A4 art journal and I took it away to Center Parcs last weekend and finally finished it, me and my sister had an art journaling night on the Friday and we were both really pleased with what we finished off with!

Had a bit of filling to do on both pictures to cover up words etc, but overall quite happy with the finished results.
Now I know we've all had to deal with the hideous weather this last week and I've certainly done my fair share of moaning about it, due to school closures last week I decided to take my 9 year old with me to work and because we were literally snowed in on the estate we had no alternative but to make the journey by public transport and using those things called legs! The round trip took 4 hours in total - absolutely crazy when you bear in mind I can do the journey on a normal day in 10-15 minutes each way! However, we were greeted with an awesome sight at the bus stop - I've no idea who did it but it brought a smile to everyone who saw it!
At first I thought they'd used some sort of charcoal but on closer inspection I'm fairly sure it was spray paint!
A few people have said the one on the right resembles our only ever female prime minister - what do you think?
I just love the expressions - absolutely fantastic!
Warning - Change of topic LOL
A few of you may be wondering if I managed the Journal Your Christmas - simple answer - yes and here it is completed, I ran it until the 11th January (even though the prompts stopped on the 6th) primarily because I wanted to include our Center Parcs weekend away!
Did it end up as thick as last years? - You bet it did!
Now an A3 double page spread - apologies for the poor photography - I'm still tattooing my pictures have you noticed?
Close up left page
and right page
and an A4 one that's a work in progress
Orange isn't a colour I usually play with, but I'm loving this up to now, can feel some more painting coming on though.
Loving my art journaling at the moment, it's proving great therapy. I've got my first ever circle journal heading off this week - quite excited about that - well I am now it's finished! Didn't know if I'd manage it - I've chosen the top "Quotes to live your life by" or "Favourite Quotes" can't wait to see what it's like when it comes back!
Done a photo order recently so need to kick into mini book making when they return!
Hope everyone's got that Friday feeling!
If you pop along and get to this point (presuming I've not bored you all silly before now) then leave a message I love knowing who has taken the time to read my waffle!
