A bistre page in my art journal

.

A few weeks ago I received a number of small plastic bags containing ‘bistre’ from my blogfriend Elvy. I showed you an art journal page last Friday (here) on which I’d used bistre, but that was not the first time I used the stuff. Today I show you how my first excersices with bistre turned out – and you will see why I am totally in love with that coloured powder!

Found Poetry Friday #26

.

I love poetry.
I am especially fond of ‘found poetry’, and I mean found in all its forms… found in book titles, found in magazines, on book pages, cut out words and sentences – you name it. There is so much possible when it comes to ‘found poetry’… and this kind of poetry is also great to use on art journal pages also.

I therefore started FOUND POETRY FRIDAY – everyone is welcome to play along!

There is an “Inlinkz”-list at the end of this post. If you want to share your found poems, you are welcome to add your name to the list that will link us to your blogpost.

You can post your found poem on your own blog any time during the week, so you don’t have to make YOUR Fridays all about poetry – you just link us to the post that contains your poem. Please use the url that goes directly to you ‘found poetry post.’

woyww #278 & September Chronicles

.

Goodmorning beautiful people!
I got up very early this morning, it was still dark and I had to wait ’till sunrise (and a little bit longer) before the light in the atelier was strong enough to take a proper picture of my desk – but at around 8.30 the things on my desk became visible enough to take a photo.
Come on in and view what is was on it – oh, and I have some art journal pages for you to see too!

Chronicles: April to July

When you saw the title you probably thought this would be one of those ‘picture overload’ posts… but it isn’t. Chronicle pagesĀ  from April to July may sound like a lot but I have only a few pages to show you from that period ’cause April, May and June were the weeks that I did not work in my journals…

First I could not do a thing because of the stress of looking at a deadline to find a new house and after we found that, by the end of April, my weeks were filled with packing and moving to the new place. Living in the new appartment brought new troubles and more stress (a noisy neighbour lived above us) and instead of relaxing after a difficult period, we faced yet again firestorms.
