Since I don't have time at the moment to start a new painting, I'm back to art journaling. I forgot how much fun it is. I'm experimenting a bit with shapes and forms. This one is a combination of a sketch and a doodle:
I also tried my hand at collage again. But it was a struggle. This one was pretty straightforward, but I'm working on another one that I'm really stuck with at the moment ....
And our round of the Face in the World challenge is now officially finished! Here are all the pieces:
This one was started by me, the face is done by Shelle and the background and hair by Sandra. I love what they did to it! Thanks both of you :-)
This one was started by Sandra, hair and lips by me and face by Shelle. Love her!
This really is a fun challenge. It's really exciting to open up the mail not knowing what you'll find inside.
And last but not least: you know I was in a kind of a slump last week, wanting to do creative stuff and not getting anything on paper? Well, just when I was all frustrated and bad-tempered, I stumbled upon Clare's blog, where she showed a sketchnote she made about an "inspiration crisis". It was so recognizable that I asked her whether I could share it on my blog. Here it is:
Love love love it! Thanks Clare, it was just the thing I needed to see at that time :-)
Well, that's it for now. I've almost finished my new calendar and am now trying to figure out how to self-publish a book. More about that later ...
Thanks so much for visiting and for leaving your wonderful comments. They are so appreciated!
Linking this again to Paint Party Friday, don't forget to go over there and check at least a few of the links out. Hope your weekend will be peaceful and sweet .... ♥ ♥ ♥
