Feel the fear and journal !


Remember I said I was not feeling it with journaling as I’d got stuck. Well, I’ve found that strong emotions can trigger journaling ! So, I am worried about an up and coming op. I felt the need to journal my feelings, and two pages just appeared!!! The first one wasn’t instantaneous, as I had a leave and come back to it, but the more I worried, the easier it became to complete. Today’s (with the girl) was done in a couple of hours!

Here is my first one (Saturday) :



I have called this “knots of worry”

today’s – called feel the fear


I hope you like them! 🙂

Happy new year and first journal page of 2016

I hope you all saw the year in well. I certainly did! I found myself tango-ing with my husband!! We did have fun!

So, today was the finish of the Woman Unleashed course. I drew how I felt – my heart was sparkly, and it felt glowy, and as though it was being held. So here’s what I did:


I got new sparkly paints, and that’s what I used for this. They are pastel colours and they only cost 5.00 and there’s 30 colours so I’m very pleased and I love the gentle way they look! 🙂

see you soon!

A happy page and the Ugly page:)

I was putting  candle wax on my pages to stop them sticking( a tip from Mimi Bondi) , and I came across this happy page – I obviously did this In a moment of happiness , and it shows, the colours are great and it’s just an altogether happy page!


The Ugly Page

well, it had to happen sooner or later – a page that is ugly. I have managed to bring a few pages back from the brink, but this one was lovely to start with, and I’m not sure what I was thinking (indeed did I think?!) I must say that I enjoyed it though! It’s called “enjoy the process” but even the words aren’t clearly written, but I truly did enjoy this though, and my art journal is for me, so there’s no real judgement there 🙂


Have a crafty day!

Latest journal page

Well, I’ve been busy, but I have been doing this journal page as I walked by it from time to time. I’d put a layer on, then walk off to do some work, then as I walked back, I did another:) I’ve not finished it yet, but I wanted to share because I really like it. 🙂 for some reason I can’t put the whole picture in here! But this gives you an idea of the page anyway!
