time to play...

art journal page....


its been ages since i got all my favorite arty products out and just messed around...here i was playing with putting all different greens on a collaged page. and for those of you who i got hooked on oil crayons then get yourself shiva paint sticks,[jenny got me hooked on these!] they are so creamy and easy to use, no more blisters for me:)

these backgrounds will part of the next class we will teaching locally in the coming months, more to be on pink possom blog later on....

i am trying to be good and reply to comments and if i havemt replied its because you have 'no reply' blogger in your settings...

Not much other news in thislitle corner of the world however i was shocked to hear about the gunman in Norway and all his poor victims. What goes thru some people heads ?

oh and oi oi oi Cadell...:)

*edited* i meant to add that i was realy inspired by the cover of the cps mag for the skirt spots....i had doodled ovewr the skirt and smudged it all so then i painted it in. I was wanting something funky but after much deliberation walked away from it to tackle another day... sitting on the coffee table was the cps with that beautiful dress on the cover....i hope i havent flouted any copyright laws...

I agree about Cadell-what a guy.
The other thing is the comment about the bloke in Norway-when I saw his photo he reminded me of the nutter who went crazy at Port Arthur in Tasmania all those years ago.
What drives people to do this to their fellow human beings.
Oh and I love the page too.

Loving the greens...fab page Jen.
I just read about your classes on the other blog...wish I could attend!
I bought some Pan Pastels this week...had never heard of them before. Tried them out today and love them!

Yayyyy! How exciting for Cadell Evans (and all of us Aussies). What an accomplishment winning the Tour de France. I've had a few too many late nights lately though, so glad it is over tonight.

Jen your journal page is GORGEOUS. I have 'one' shiva paintstick, can see I will have to get more. What is the class you are teaching (and where?), sounds like fun.

My thoughts go to all the people of Norway too. So sad.
