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.
...some of my pages from last Friday

Art journaling aka page wrangling


New things for me in this page - using aluminium foil, string and gesso experiments and having fun with my new Lumocolor permanent pencils

This page was started without a plan , as usual, felt quite lost in the middle but managed to wrangle it together in the end. Hope you like taking a look at the process...Enjoy!!

Meanwhile...on the crafting front.

Having fun doing this online course.



I am doing it pretty slow and a bit slap dash really but have enjoyed trying out new supplies and techniques.

The journal I have been using is just an old novel from an op-shop. I think it was 10 cents. Much less pressure for me than what I feel from "the white page"

This is the most recent. Nothing overly original but I think the face is getting a bit better as I go.

More journal page experiments over here

blame it on baby!

Oh dear! I think I returned from my holidays only to take another holiday!

I have been up to things in real life and the start of the school year for the girl and lil'z starting kindy aswell has kept me busier than usual...but I have decided that the only real change that is throwing a spanner in the blogworks is...

...THE BABY

Not that I want to burden this new bundle with blame before it is even born, but really... I had forgotten about the breathlessness, tiredness, brain fag, bending problems, embarrassing clothing malfunctions and the ligament strains in all kinds of places I didn't even know I have ligaments!

Coping relatively well though and pretty exciting really. This will definitely be our last - I think hubby-j thought that about lil'z, he is taking a bit to catch up with the idea he agreed to a while back.

So...baby number three is headed to arrive in our arms at the end of June (Do you think I can order labour up to coincide with the school holidays?)

I am sure that with a 7 year old, a 3.5 year old and a newborn, that at least two of the things in my blog byline (kids, craft and the usual chaos) will be getting the full workout!

Sweet owl

Finally home from the holidays!

This cake wasn't a bad effort given the supplies that I could find in rural NSW. Next time I might just transport everything with me.

Lil'z loved it, and really....that's all that matters!
