The Documented Life - week 25

The prompt for week 25 was to 'cover your flap in hearts'. So that is what I did! My flap was a postcard of a stained glass windows by Matisse. I didn't want to cover that up, so I added my hearts to the back of it. The right-hand page and the strips on the left are deli paper that I have decorated and then stuck into my journal.

I came upon this quote, probably on Pinterest, and it just seemed so true, at least for me, so I wanted to add it to an art journal page. It says, "What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be."

Art Journal Caravan - week 23

OK, I know I am behind, but I am doing my  best to catch up! The overall theme for June was music. I found it difficult to start my first piece as I love so many different types of music, but in the end I plumped for J. S. Bach.

Holiday doodles

This piece is similar to the piece yesterday, except I used a Picasso piece we saw in Sorrento as inspiration - the dove with the head of the girl within it.

These are just bits and pieces I created for use in future collages.

Holiday doodles

Here are a couple of pieces I played with whilst on holiday. My supplies were very limited; some paper, a glue-stick and some acrylic pens. The first piece is a collage over which I drew the flowers. The second piece is just a butterfly I drew on decorated paper.
