The quote says: don’t be afraid to go out on a limb, that’s where all the best fruit is. 
I do feel rather like thats me now 🙂 – im going out on a limb!! 
Heres my first ever painting: 

I am going to give it to my friend brenda, who gave me a painting a couple of weeks ago. 🙂 its done with water colour pencils and i really enjoyed it! Im pleased with it! 🙂

A happy blog page!

After the darkness of the last journal spread i wanted to be a little less intense. So, i was inspired by the You Tube videos of Nicoletta Zanella, and did this happy page. Its the first time ive collaged, and as yet, incomplete, but i wanted to put it up because it makes me happy 🙂 

Ive used gelatos for the background, and a Stabilo all pencil in brown to outline. Ive yet to put some doors on, and more “stuff” 🙂 i must admit i am enjoying this page!!! 🙂

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!
