“Ik ben vandaag zo vrolijk, zo vrolijk, zo vrolijk
Ik ben vandaag zo vrolijk, zo vrolijk was ik nooit…”
Today I'm very happy, so happy, so happy Today I'm very happy, as happy as can be...
You wanna know why?

Lorraine of Love of Collage! Congratulations, Lorraine!
I was in ooh and aah when I visited her blog. Lorraine is an amazing
(collage) artist and my art journal will find a creative and warm ”home’!
I want to thank all the visitors who stopped by during the “One World
One Heart” event. I never thought I would get that many, lovely comments
and I was a bit overwhelmed to say the least… I met so many amazing
artists and found inspiration on every blog I visited. THANK YOU ALL!
Also, I’d like to ‘virtual’ embrace all of my followers – both old and new.
You are the wind beneath my creative wings, and I am very grateful that
I am part of this creative, supporting and loving group of bloggers that I
can call my friends!
OK, that should be enough compliments to get you through the weekend.
Let’s talk about me now… or better – let me show you my latest work…
The next prompt for A Year in the Life of an Art Journal
THE PROMPT: Fight
THE SONG: Breakin’ Dishes by Rihanna
I never worked with bleach before so I had to look up some tutorials on
the Internet. After that, I went crazy – experimenting with bleach and
stamps (you saw some of that on my latest ‘Chronicles’ page) and brushes
and ink and watercolor paint.. woowheee… I had a blast!!!
I ended up with this page, but I’m sure I will use more bleach in future work.
I would never have thought of using this technique if it wasn’t for this prompt,
I used adirondack spray ink and a brush to make the strokes and some
splatter with bleach (be sure to wear old clothes if you try this!)
The quotation marks were done with a stamp dipped into bleach.
I cut the images of pointing hands out of a magazine.
Next is a page made by the marvelous Eliza, from druga szesnascie
(That’s Polish, no idea what it means 😀 )
Some time ago, E. started a collaborative project with a friend: a special
kind of conversation. They both made their own altered book in which
they ask one question and sent it to the other to answer.
Questions and answers in ‘art’ – WOW!
This collage is E’s answer to the first question that her friend asked:
Her answer is: “Courage!”
Inspired by her collage, I made an ‘answer to her answer’.
“I might drown in my own thoughts”
And now, my friends, I’m going to dive into my new stamps!
I won’t drown… but I have enough stamps to take a nice bath!
I wish you all a nice and creative weekend.
And Jenneke, Jeanet and Petra… see you on Sunday! Woohooo!!!
