Last week I was over my head busy getting issue 3 of FEATURING
ready to go to the printer’s office.
Yes, that’s right – you heard well:
Because the second issue was later then we originally scheduled,
we worked our *** off to catch up so that we can bring out this third
issue before Christmas. I’m so proud of my team, my beloved designer
and all the contributors who pulled up their socks to make it happen.
And you know what? There’s just some finishing touches to take care of
and then we have a go!
You may not believe it, but I managed to get some art journaling done
in between. Just a few minutes here and there… but the result is that
I can show you two pages in my ‘weird journal.’
Two Lost Souls
This background with silhouettes was laying around, waiting to get finished
for weeks now. Finally, I journaled some text, gave it some splashes and
called it finished. I still don’t know what to think of it. “Weird” maybe?
24 or 6 to 9
I know… I know… the song by Chicago is called “25 or 6 to 4”
That is the joke! (This is a spread in my “weird journal,” remember?)
I painted the face over a photo and it is kinda all right, but I found it a bit easy
to do it this way (use a photo as a basis I mean) so I challenged myself to paint
a similar face without the help of a photo. That painting is on my Chronicles
page – but I cannot show it to you as the journaling on that spread is not done
yet. I will definitely post it next Friday!
On another note I want to remind you about my upcoming Art Journaling workshop with Michelle LaPoint Rydell. It runs from February 4th through March 14th, 2013. It’s called MIXED EMOTIONS, and it’s all about expressing your emotions through art journaling. We are going to have tons of fun!!! Here’s what you get…
- 12 lessons with assignments in pdf format. Each lesson will focus on a specific emotion and an art technique that goes with it. Techniques will be clearly shown through photos or demonstrated on video. Both beginners and advanced art journalers will find pleasure in working with the lessons.Access to inspirational videos to inspire you and help your creative juices flow.
- Extra printable collage sheets with photos, illustrations and quotes to use in your work.
- Access to a private group discussion forum where you may share, ask questions and interact with the teachers and other class participants.(Access will be activated a few days before the workshop starts or within 24 hours of payment.)
- Access to group albums for posting your completed assignments and seeing what others have done. (Access will be activated a few days before the workshop starts or within 24 hours of payment.)

It’s evening in The Netherlands and there’s an action movie on TV
in 15 minutes. Just what I need after a day’s work… so I’m off to relax
and watch – what’s his name again – oh yes, Bruce Willis.
Thanks for stopping by dear ones, I see you at the end of the week!
