Lately, the last thing on my mind was creating heavenly art journal pages lol
My head has been buzzing with a new exciting project I can’t quite talk about yet…
And let’s not forget the release of my 2nd book ”Secret Stash”!!!
It’s not really a ‘book’ as such though, please check it out and let me know if you love or hate the idea 🙂
In between all the work craziness, I have also been dealing with house renovations…
Pete and I (and fluffy Poppy too of course!) were supposed to go away for a week but, we ended up staying home to renovate every day.
Yay. Not. Really.
If Pete and I weren’t so stubborn, we would pay someone to do the work for us but… We are both the kind of people who think ‘if we can do it (or learn how to do it) ourselves, why get someone else to do it?”.
Commendable I guess… But of course everything takes 10 times longer 😉
it’s been 7 months since we kind of moved in and the disaster zone will eventually stop, right? lol
And if you need someone to tile your bathroom, demolish walls or ceilings, patching holes etc then I’m your girl 😉
(Just give me a few months for each project hahaha)
Now all that stuff didn’t leave me a moment to sit at my art table to create anything for a while so it was really time to open up my art journal…
How did I get to my heavenly art journal spread?
Well, I was adding colours over some leftover Dylusions inks and playing with stencils… And eventually was led to using that set of Pentel oil pastels I bought ages ago but hadn’t really touched… And suddenly I had this gorgeous abstract journal spread that felt so harmonious I didn’t want to add anymore to it!
Except… for my magical Opal Dust which turned my pages into heavenly art journal pages!!!
Watch the video below and let me know your thoughts at the bottom of this page…
