Happy Friday Everyone! I posted on Wednesday that today's post was going to be special, something that has been a long time in the making, and I wasn't kidding!
Several months ago I broke down and purchased one of the Art Journals that Ranger makes, just like the one Dyan Reaveley uses with her Dylusions Ink. I thought this would help me in journaling my thoughts, and help me try out products to see what they can do. I stared at the blank book for weeks and weeks, before finally jumping right in and smearing some ink on a page. I worked on one double page layout for weeks, letting the various layers of paint, gesso, and glue dry well.
Then it finally hit me! You don't have to concentrate on one single page until it is done! Now I have 6 or 7 pages started with backgrounds, and each day I have time to work in it, I add a little something to the pages I have started. Wednesday I finally completed one page, and here it is in all it's glory! Taa Daa!
Learning new things, trying out new products, and creating something that speaks to me.
Sharing it on my blog will also give me the opportunity to receive constructive criticism from my bloggie friends and help me produce pages that I know will speak to others, too. So feel free to share your comments with me, but just remember I am NOT a professional artist, I do this for fun and my own personal enjoyment. I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive weekend. Stay safe, and if you get the chance, "Create a little something that makes you HAPPY!"
