As I shared in my last post, I've been having a very social and busy couple of weeks so haven't had as much time to create art as usual. At least I've managed to mainly keep up with my art journaling.
black and white. If you click on that link, you'll see previews of what was presented to those of us who have joined this year. The new theme for April is "Reaching for rainbows - creating outside the lines". I was looking through a wee gifted birthday quote book and found the perfect page to tear out and use as the base for a black and white challenge piece
I know this spread isn't artfully fabulous, but there's a reason I share it. I just finished looking at one of Alisa Burke's most recent blog posts where she's created a new colourful giant mural on her bedroom wall. It was what she had to say in the words of her post that really resonated for me though : creativity (even painting giant walls) is more about the journey than the destination...It truly is ALL about love and passion for the creative process. And that's how I feel too - that's why I keep playing in my art journal, and making PACs and experimenting with new techniques. It's the process of creation that clears my stress and makes me happy. I just love to create stuff and share it with others in the hope that will in turn inspire someone else to find a pathway to happiness.

This weekend sees the beginning of 2 weeks of school hols. Looking forward to a change of pace.
