My Poor Neglected Blog!!

Wow it's been way too long in between posts! I have been so busy with the shop and family (damn school holidays!!) that I really have not done much creative stuff.
But I have just booked to do some classes with Donna Downey in Sydney next month!!!!
So I decided I should get the mojo flowing and try a few of her Art Journal pages. The top double page is from Donna's Inspiration Wednesday videos. It was the first page I did and I LOVE it! The words read ''As I begin my creative journey embrace mistake not as error but growth'' I pulled it out of my butt, but I like it. It suits what this journal means to me, learning to not care for perfection, I can't paint master pieces, but I can enjoy the process!
This was my second page. I need to get some india ink and a nib pen, writing with a paint brush is not my thing!!
The cover of my art journal. Lots of texture and different mediums!!
Both my beautiful babies on the first day of school! Ethan is grade 2 and Imogen is in Preps!!
She was so looking forward to her first day and just chatted non stop after school! Except for the 'little bit bad' where she fell off a rock and cut (TINY) her hand!
A card I made recently for one of James' co workers who had a baby. I used my Copic markers to colour the cute Magnolia baby stamp and the mesh. I wish I didn't have to give it away!!
A finally my layout for the Fat Cat Scrappin' February Challenge kit. I really challenged myself to do a shaped layout.
