Art Journal

Thought I'd share some pages from my Art Journal. I use it to play around with techniques and ideas.
Here are some older to very recent pages.
Some of these aren't finished yet, they are just backgrounds. As I've experimented more I've decided I prefer the ones that I've used book pages as the base for the backgrounds. I also like using magazine images, either as a main image for the page or as a silhouette.
I joined Nathalie Kalbachs Creative Jump Start Summit. It's FREE. You receive an email each day to Jump Start your creativity and they have been brilliant. So pleased I joined in. It has really made me think about spending even just 10 minutes, when I can, creating something. ANYTHING. It doesn't matter, just playing is the key, a little or a lot whenever you can.

Goodbye Xmas 2011

Finally packed away my Xmas tree on Monday. I try to hold out as long as possible. I love looking at my decorated tree with its pretty lights and the lovely spirit it gives the room. I wait till the very last moment lol. Then reluctantly pack it away.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

What a busy few days it has been. Had a great day for my birthday. Here are some photos.
Had a nice lunch with James and my BFs.
Walked around the market at Aotea centre. Colour and patterns everywhere.
The old Farmers Santa still hanging in there. Now on the Whitcoulls building in Queen St.
Then we had dinner at Daikoku with family. That was so much fun! Definitely going back. Emma couldn't make the day, she had to work. 
I had scallops. They were goooood.
I do love nights in the city at Xmas.
Been working since. Despite the rain we have had a fairly busy Holiday Park and today is finally our day off. Hence the blog update.
