and I keep going ....

Yes, another artjournalpage :-)  Can't get enough of it. Didn't have much time left for art this week though, so I had to work on it in between other things.


But I managed to finish it. I was hesitant at first using so much black, but on the other hand I think it makes the colours really pop, so I just went with it. Raw journaling, remember ....? Doing what I feel like at that moment, without too much thought of how it will look later on.


This time I saw all the figures right away. First the girl that's hanging in the air, her image was so clear that I couldn't ignore it. Then the big face on the left, and then the other faces. I love it when I see figures everywhere.


Here's the whole spread:


This week is a week full of promotions in my Society6-shop. Every day there are different promotions, and on top of that, until the 14th of December it's also free worldwide shipping and 5$ off every item in my shop! I made some new shirts this week. Takes a bit of time to get them all in my shop though. Here's one:


Also, every week another instructor from Soul Food is introduced here. Keep your eye on there, because every week there's a chance to win a free spot in Soul Food 2015!

Well, that's it for now. I'm linking this as always to Paint Party Friday.  Thanks so much for visiting, and for leaving your lovely comments. I really appreciate it :-)

Here's my funny for this week:

oh yes, and don't I know it ... :-)

Hope you're having a good day, and a lovely weekend waiting for you! See you next time!   ♥ ♥ ♥

  7. It's marvellous how you can coax these wonderful images out of your page and you achieve such unusual paintings. Love the girl hanging in the air with the purple flowers around.

  15. Denise - love those journal pages. It's good to just play and see what works and what doesn't - with no real expectations. The colors on the black background do really pop.

  21. The black is really effective. I like this piece-is quote dark (aside from the Black i mean) with the girl hanging in the air like that-what do you think it represents for you?

    1. Thanks Nic! The girl falling was the first thing I saw, and then I saw all the hands reaching out for her. And when I was looking for a quote, this one jumped out to me, because it told me what it represents for me: we are all connected by visible and invisible lines, and there's always someone willing to help and pick you up when it gets too much. Even though you feel like falling, there's help around you, even if you don't see it yet....
