Some of you were a bit worried after my Friday post.
That’s so sweet of you (you know who you are) but there was nothing wrong
with me. It just was the end of a very busy week and when I finally had the time
to create, my energy was all gone. I had a beautiful half-finished page waiting
for me, but somehow my mojo was gone.
I ended up doing nothing and felt slightly frustrated … and I went to bed early.
The next day, the guys and I started the weekend with an English breakfast
(waaahhh … sausages, bacon, baked beans … how many calories is that?)
I hoisted me into a skirt instead of my worn home suit – which made me feel
all ‘girly’, and the mojo came flying in. Woohooo!
I kept on going, and it’s too much to show it all today.
I’ll save something for my Friday post, so you won’t find ‘nothing’ again…
Ofcourse I finished my week page!
The Chronicles of Marit – week 6
A little bit of this, a little bit of that…
I experimented with bleach (stamped on the right page) but I didn’t like
the results this particular stamp gave. I do like the technique though,
and I learned a lot during my experiments!
Last Summer, my son gave me this fabulous journal!
I showed the inside pages on my old blog in this post
(you can also read the conversation I had with him back then)
This weekend, I started working on the first page.
It’s quite large – 25 x 35 cm (9.8 x 13.7 inch) which is nice to work on
for a change. Here’s the page I made
It doesn’t really show on the photo, but the black lines and doodles on
the borders are made with liquid pearl pen.
It’s all shiny and dimensional, and I love the effect!
Oh, and I’m in love with my water soluble oil pastels!!!
The pages in this new journal have a little bit of structure,
and the effect when I used the pastels on the page is amazing!
My beloved gave me this large box from Caran d’Ache,
and I find myself wanting to use them all the time!
Thanks so much love!
This week, I still will be busy writing articles and there will again be little time left to create (but I got my Friday post covered 😉 ) After that, it will be done for a month and I have lots of plans to fill March with! More about that later – Ha, I thought it would be nice to leave you a little curious…
Enjoy your week beautiful ones!

Her blog is worth following by the way!)
