Where do I start?

I wish I had kept up my blogging, so much has been happening lately and I have been busy….

I have signed up for the FREE Whimsical Workspaces Workshop “a month long nurturing of your creative space”… I have photos of before on the previous post….. even though I haven’t been in the forum much, I have slowly made my workspace a little more organised and easier to work in.

Last weekend I went Barwon Heads near Geelong to a Scrap Retreat with 9 other wonderful girls…. it was a nice size group, lots of sharing, laughter and FOOD!! Oh and scrapping and even mixed media art.

The 2 storey beach househouse


Here are a few projects I did on the week end:

In my Art Journal… these are from sketches I did a couple weeks ago, I just sat and sketched the first thing that popped in my head.




I also did this  18x15in canvas of the ‘Gratitude’ I did in my AJ a while back which I really loved!!! I love the colour combo, the texture and pretty pleased with the girl too!!

Last night I finished Day Of The Dead in my AJ, from the GOTHIC DREAMS WORKSHOP by Adrianna Almanza


I know it sounds gruesome, but these are sweet dollies! They call the skull a Sugar Skull, and you paint and decorate it to make it look pretty. I used acrylic paint, and paint markers.

The title is Celebrate Life, I added a quote I loved :

Don’t cry because it’s over –Smile because it happened!

I have done the sketch for the next Goth Dolly – A Little Black Angel, which I will share when she is finished……Winking smile

and guess what? I can use these…


Supracolour soft watercolour pencils and Neocolour II Watercolour crayons Smile

WOOHOO!!!! I was excited when they arrived by post, I was too scared to use them the first day! HAHAHA…

Hopefully I will do better to keep up with all the goings on here and blog more often…
