Art journal withdrawals..

Been such a long time between pages...

I have been busy beginning a new business, opening a vintage stall in the city. All much funs  - but it has left me temporarily with less time to art and I am missing it...ALOT!!
The store is now up and basically stocked... (even with a little art) but now I need to get back to the journal!!

Here's my last spread...she looks a little melancholy at being left alone with her wattle

Mixed Media Art - Journal Page - MAKE MISTAKES

This journal page was started with a spread that I had put leftover paints onto. It is a really good way to start a page and use up leftover paint from other projects or classwork. All good in theory mind you, until I had to close the book before it had dried and once opened the paint had stuck the pages together!!This is where I began this page as the prompt was - EMBRACE MISTAKES

The quote is from Neil Gaiman's keynote addresss to the Philadelphia University of the Arts, class of 2012.

"Go, and make interesting mistakes, 
make amazing mistakes, 
make glorious and fantastic mistakes. 
BREAK RULES.
 Leave the world more interesting for your being here. 
MAKE
GOOD
ART"

Art Journal Social

Have been getting together with some interested arty ladies over the last few weeks. The number are still small so it has been quite relaxing.
