Cripes, a week has already passed since my last post. Time is running away with me. So I thought I'd better post something before you start worrying whether Nick has buried me under the patio, finally.
Well, my mojo and I have taken a holiday during October. It was great fun doing the 31 Objects challenge and thank you to everyone who read them and those who left kind and encouraging comments too.
Trouble is, I haven't done anything creative for a few weeks now. In truth, I've been feeling a bit burnt out. So rather than fight it, I took a break. Not that I was completely idle in my spare time. I've taken a couple of online classes and spent my hours playing and practicing. Which was all great fun but not stuff that is blogworthy. Frustratingly, getting back in the saddle is proving harder than I thought.
So in an effort to start the ball rolling, I sat down and put together an art journal page.
In my time away from crafting, I've been looking up different styles of art journal pages, soaking them up and finding out which ones appeal to me. And from what I have perused over, it seems that Teesha Moore is the original and biggest influence on the current designs of pages. They are bright, colourful, quirky in their collaged images and lead the way in how journaling is added.
And yes, to start adding something, anything, to my art journal, I turned to Teesha and made an imitative page. It has wings, hats, funny eyes and swirled lines of writing. Yes all the typical elements are there. But it's a good place to start. I'll need to make a few more before hopefully seeing more of my own personal style being added to the mix.
Right, off to open a tube of paint. These pages aren't going to colour themselves.
Hope you are all staying good friends with your own mojos.
