The Guardian

Today I wanted to share my latest art journal entry, my second project for Life Book 2014 - and totally inspired by Tamara Laporte. I can really see how far my style has come in the past year, and though I realise my work isn't perfect I am still loving where I am at right now. And hopefully, it will only get better and better. 

I've painted this on heavy Fabriano watercolour paper using gesso, Neocolor II watercolour crayons, graphite pencil and Ceramcoat acrylic paint. I've also collaged some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue paper - Composer into the background which you can just make out if you look hard enough. 

A Brand New Adventure

It's been a little while since I've posted here and I feel I've been pretty neglectful. But with the beginning of the new year I have started a new adventure in my art journaling journey and signed up for Life Book 2014, which you can find here. It goes all year so I have no excuse now not to update more regularly and so far it's been truly wonderful.

My first piece was just a warm up exercise, but it was so much fun and Tam makes everything so easy with fabulous instruction. And I'm really loving how this has turned out.

Enjoy the rest of your day x
