Goodmorning lovelies – how’s life going? I didn’t blog all week ’cause I had a lot of other fun activities going on – but I dived into my atelier after the weekend and went wild with images, glue, paint and markers. Now you may think my desk shows that wildness but no… you will not be surprised to hear I kept my desk neat. Ha – yep, that’s me, the ‘neat artist.’ However, the evidence of my hard work is in my journals. Take a look.
The art journal spread in the middle of my desk is not finished yet. For the ones who saw the calendar I bought last week (it was on my desk-photo I published in my former blogpost) – I used a photo from the calendar on the page (the lady on a bed on the left.)
The spread I made for week 9 in my Chronicles art journal (on the left table) is finished, but I haven’t showed the former week pages yet so I will publish it later. Instead, I show you what I created for week 7.
The ‘week journaling’ is on a card inside the pocket and I used a quote from Ludwig Wittgenstein to go with the horse on the page: “I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse.” (By the way, it’s only half of the quote. The complete sentence is: “I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse. I only owe it to the horse’s good nature that I am not thrown off at this very moment.”
Well… I am still riding and intend to stay on the horse: hence this!
|ONLINE workshop Let it Loose €35.00

This workshop will loosen you up and take you a step further in creating your own, unique art journal pages.

Yep, I’m teaching this online workshop in April & May and I’m looking forward to it!
This is what former students had to say about Let it Loose:
“I had such a wonderful time with this workshop. I learned so much. I am still using all that I learned everywhere I go! Marit is a wonderful teacher, and if she is offering this workshop again, I highly recommend it!!” ~ Danielle
“I’ve just started a super cool art journal class with Marit – I wish I’d had teachers like her in school! When you visit her blog, check out her work – wow! And if you have the chance to take a class with her – do it! You won’t regret it.” ~ Anne
“Let it Loose has been such a fun and inspiring class! I highly recommend it – whether you have never tried art journaling, or you’ve been doing it for awhile. The lessons are fun and easy to follow, open enough for interpreting in your own style, and the atmosphere is super supportive!” ~ Michelle
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it and hope to visit as much woyww-posts as I possibly can this week so: see you! Have a sunny, fun and creative week.
