you must have missed me...

I didn't realize it but people miss my blogging! I never expected that! a few of you darling people posted comments about missing my artwork! and that touched my heart. It has been a while since I've blogged, and I apologize in advance, my little one started school, we went to brissy for a wedding, and I have had a hard time creating anything worthy of blogging about!

I've been doing alot of random collages, printing photos just taping things down and adding colour, here is a sketch I started at the bus stop after dropping my kids off at school and daycare, the lamp post is right near the bus stop, so I sat and sketched it in the heat of Monday morning sun. Came home and brought it to life with paints pencils, copics whatever I could get my hands on.

I started printing some of my day to day photos that I snap randomly, to try and give my journal a personal touch. I had steered away from faces for a bit as I lost a little confidence with them, so to get back in the groove I just collaged.

and another bus stop art piece, even though my bag is extra heavy carrying my big journal around, its a few mins a day by myself while I wait for the bus, and it all adds up. This girl still isnt finished, but she will get a few more tweaks before I'm done with that page.

when I pick up my art journal from my partners mums place (forgot it yesterday) I will snap a few shots of what I'm working at the moment. I'm glad people care enough to comment on my blog, to bring me back to this realm, meant alot.

    P.S. Thought, I ought to share this w/ you: I've thought about taking Jane's Supplies Me class for months (Since she 1st annonced it over on Willowing. I was rather intriged...she seems like a lot of fun & a wealth of info; yet, I was still unsure.). Well, it was following your journey, here, that truly convinced me, that this was, indeed, the right class for me. So, I joined...just this week & started yesterday...yum! LOVE IT!!! THANK YOU so much for sharing your heArtful journey!
