Face #13 was part of a journalpage:
And here's the whole journalspread:
I had an accident on this page, shaking a bottle of white fluid acrylics that I forgot I had already opened.... I just let it all drip across the pages, and in the end it turned out okay. Love making these weird figures, just following lines that are already on the page from previous layers :-)
Face #15 was another lyricsgirl, with lyrics from Heather Nova:
Face #16: watercolour and marker
Face #17: watercolour
Face #18: yes, I finally made another floodle (doodle combined with flowers)
And the last one for this week: #19: pencil and marker:
And I got a nice surprise this week! Sweet Carol from "pouring my hart out" nominated me for a Liebster award! I have received this award a few times already, but every time I feel privileged to have my blog chosen. One problem however is that it's getting really hard to find fellow bloggers who want to accept this award. So I'm going to bend the rules a little bit. I'll answer the questions Carol asked me, but I'm not going to nominate other blogs. I think all of you out there in Blogland are great, and I want to give it to every single one of you. So go ahead, if you want it, you can answer the same questions Carol asked me, and pass the award on to others if you want! Hope that's okay with you Carol, and I want you to know I really appreciate the gesture ♥
Okay, here goes (I'll try to keep it short):
1) How did you get into blogging?
When we emigrated to Australia 4 years ago, I started a blog to keep family and friends informed, and I liked it so much that I decided to start one for my art adventures as well.
2) How did you come up with your blog name?
That's easy: the first 3 letters of my first name, and the first 3 letters of my last name :-) It's the name I was already using to sign my paintings.
3) What is the best bit of blogging?
Without a doubt the connections with like-minded people all over the world
4) What is an art/craft you have always wanted to try?
5) Where do you do most of your art?
In my kitchen, and while we're living in my sister's house I have a nice big studio I can use !!
6) What would be your dream job?
Paint and create all day, either alone or together with other people
7) Where is your favorite place in the world?
Phew, there are so many .... I guess one of my most favorite places must be Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia
8) Can you speak more than one language?
Well, growing up in the Flemish part of Belgium we have to learn 4 different languages in highschool: Dutch (mother language), French, English and German. So I speak 4 languages, although I admit my French and German are a bit rusty ;-)
9) Where/how did you learn your art?
By experimenting, doing workshops (online and in person), getting books in libraries and practicing practicing practicing .....(or maybe playing playing playing ☺)
10) What is your favorite film?
That's a difficult one, since I haven't seen a film in ages. I guess "life of Pi" must be one of my favorites....
11) What is your dream for the future?
Being able to live from my art :-)
Phew, that were quite a few questions. Hope I didn't bore you ... I'm linking this as always to Paint Party Friday and to the 29 faces challenge. Hop on over there for some serious eye-candy!
Thanks so much for visiting and supporting me, I love the connections with all of you and hope to get to your blogs this weekend! Have a lovely day, and a weekend without stress!
See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
