Paints and inks by Dylusions
Rub-on by 7gypsies
A couple of weeks ago I taught an art journaling class with a theme of repeating images. We created a background using finger painting *my fave* and then hand drew our houses onto old text before colouring them in with paints and pastels and adding them to our pages. We can all draw can't we? Drawing doesn't have to be 'perfect' (whatever that is!) and mine certainly isn't perfect LOL!
Occasionally I like to add a random rub-on to my pages, and I love these by 7gypsies:

Next we chose an image to represent ourself, so here I am as a crow. It's not the first time I have been referred to as an old crow ;-) We added hats to represent the different hats we wear in life. Here my hats are:
1 wife and mummy
2 teacher and instructor
3 general dogsbody and picker upper of things and stuff
Now, lookie what has landed at Art from the Heart this week.
OMG I am loving the new funky people and they are a fab size for art journaling. They are selling out fast already so you had better be quick!
I am going to take a little blogging break while my children are on holiday from school. I have scheduled a couple of posts to go live over the next couple of weeks but I am going to step away from the internet (it's gonna be hard LOL!) so I won't be around to reply to comments or e-mails. Missing you all already!
I am going to spend a bit of quality time with my children doing things like this:
Enjoy your summer wherever you are :-)
Bye for now.
