Getting my mojo back!

It’d been about a month of okish, it’ll do, kind of pages in my journal. They weren’t especially inspired or exciting but the outcome isn’t the reason for keeping an art journal. That said, when I managed to create these pages this weekend I was pleased/proud/relieved. Relieved because a month of so so pages was starting to feed the voice that says I’m not creative, I can’t do this etc. Some pages, not necessarily the most attractive pages, feel right. They make your heart sing a little. This is how I feel about this weekend’s pages.

These pages were in response to a wanderlust prompt: what do i see in the mirror. My face was a photo printed in grayscale, glued onto the gesso and covered with gesso, paints etc. Much easier than trying to draw it and far less painful for my hands.

And if that wasn’t enough, I even unpacked (yes, I’ve moved house, whoop! But that’s another post) my scanncut machine to make a few cards.

Sea Pinks in Ireland

I’m feeling very pleased with myself having finally uploaded the next couple of items into my shop.  This time you can buy pretty little sea pink cards, perfect if your new years resolution was to keep in touch with friends and family.  Order a card, grab a coffee and mull over your letter.  Alternatively, there’s a framed print version available.
