I’ve been creative!

Hi everyone :)

Today I finally got my arty stuff out and did something creative.  It’s been a REALLY long time since I actually got inky/painty hands and it was well overdue!

I know I usually take step by step photos but today I just got completely lost in the creative process and forgot all about that until the page was actually done… and of course by that stage I had stuff EVERYWHERE!!

Here’s my finished page before it got put into my art journal.  The page actually curled up quite a bit… must have been all the layers of paint!1

It looked heaps better once it was attached into my art journal:2

And here it is again as a full spread:3

About the only think that I know is not on my page anywhere is Distress Ink… and that’s because I haven’t been able to find ANY of them since I moved! 

I’m still going to carry on with Project Life this year but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep to the same format as the last two years.  I have been taking a lot more photos on my new phone so I’ve got plenty to work with but for now I’m busy adjusting to life in Gisborne, a new relationship and a house that is far too small for all my stuff!
