Life Book Week 1/52

In my first week of Life Book 2015, I have created three pages, which I will upload a little later, or you can check out on my Flickr or the Crafted Arts FB page.

Week one is jam-packed full of awesomeness, courtesy of Tamara Laporte (of Willowing Arts) who is just FANTASTIC.



We are three days – and two awesome expressions of creativity – into LifeBook 2015 and I am LOVING IT!
It gives me an excuse (not that I really needed one but hey now I’ve got one) to get my art on. The only problem is that now I’m going to be waiting for every Monday (afternoon here in Aus cause of the time difference) with thinly veiled impatience!
Hahahahahahaha little bit crazy

New year

It’s weird to contemplate what my life would be like without art, or writing….. Shudder I don’t even really want to think about it.

This year I have signed up for Life Book 2015 (I will put the link below when I get onto a computer), so hopefully I’ll get into more of a routine in my creation. I’m soooo excited to be embarking on this creative journey, who knows, maybe my brain will actually retain some new techniques and sparks of inspiration instead of my muse just firing pictures and feelings (to capture in my art) through my brain 24/7.

In the wise words of the awesome Tigger, TTFN 😀

Creative Nights

I have been loitering among various art journalling and creativity-inspiring blogs lately (linked at the bottom of this post), and it has really helped get my creativity flowing. It’s not that I haven’t been able to create things using various mediums – I’ve just been a bit blocked in terms of themes, or subject matter.

Scrolling through various albums & pictures, and prompt lists & inspiring quotes, has given my muse mucho ammo – and she’s firing fast! I haven’t been blogging much lately because of the sheer amount of paint, gesso, journals, glue, needle & thread, crayons, pencils, etc that have been cluttering my life. I’ve been creating works in my art journal from various meditations, visual & reflective exercises, and passages from books I’ve been reading.

I may post some pictures of the art that has been occupying my time recently, with the link to my FB page 🙂
