I’ve had a pretty hectic week recently so I was glad to book a few days off this coming week and have a four day weekend. I’ve already planned my days as indulging in my new journaling and scrapbooking obsessions! I got a Smashbook and just adore it, even though I have done one page! It is luscious. I think I need to have more focus on the kind of pages I want to make, although the page I have done was experimental and fun to play around with. I’m going to put up some pictures soon. I’ve also been having fun with mixed media in my art journal and my room just looks like it has exploded when I have everything out! I don’t have much space so I use a laptop table and have my materials and tools in boxes around my bed. One day I would really like a whole craft room!
I’ve felt a little under the weather recently, possibly a bit stressed, but am hoping this will go as I really enjoyed making my art video last weekend and am planning another. I have borrowed some equipment from work (handy working in Media!) and am going to make one showing how I do an art journal page. This time I will have more of a solid idea in mind, maybe a theme or word to build an image from. I am enjoying using different mediums and textures and how I can combine them for different effects. I’ve got a few other ideas for projects I have been thinking about for ages, so I am going to busy on my blog again! I’ve found blogging a cathartic experience and gained so much through connecting with other liked minded people. I think it is a great way to share your passions and interests, but also an interesting way to journal your life. I keep a written diary too which I wish I would write in more. Thank you to everyone who takes time to read and comment on my posts, it means a lot x
