Art journal Flip Through

My Friends!! I’m stick alive and kicking, and yes my hair is still crazy LOLΒ Thank you for all the messages you have sent to check on me, I’m ok πŸ˜‰

The Mixed Media Store has been keeping me busy packing orders, and I’m happy because I get to bring mixed media goodness to all my fellow Aussie artists!

I will be honest with you though… Losing my little Poppy did take it out of me, more than I realised…

It’s now been a year (just over) since he left us and it I still cry (it took me 3 years to get over the hump of losing my first dog so I’m in it for the long haul!).
I sometimes feel like my brain is trying to make me feel bad about things I can’t do anything about anymore, making me feel guilty or a bit angry at myself but… They are just stupid thoughts with no foundation. I cared for him for 16 years and we shared sooo many beautiful moments together! Having my new best friend Elliot has been such a blessing though πŸ˜‰

I have also been feeling a bit unsettled in my art studio, moving things around, trying out new corners of my house… I have supplies in the lounge, in the Store, in the studio and that makes me feel a bit disjointed… I need to have it all in one place but when I move it all in one place, I won’t stay long there hahaha
I need a studio outside, one in my lounge for when I want to watch tv and spend time with my family, one downstairs for when I am teaching workshops, want to film videos and have time alone…

Basically I need a studio FIRST, with a kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom, not a house FIRST with a studio as a secondary need. Am I alone out there constantly moving things around, never feeling very happy for long with my setup???

Anyway, let’s get on with this art journal flip through so you can see all the goodness in my small Dylusions Journal here! It has been years in the making because I work on several journals, and art tags, and deli paper and loose paper etc at the same time!

I hope you’ll leave me a comment below with some of your thoughts πŸ˜‰
