Just checking in to show you a doodle I recently did at work in my lunch hour. I had my new collection of sharpies on hand and just used the black, blue and purple. Started with a circle drawn around the bottom of my coffee cup and went from there.
I have been working on a couple of art journal pages for a class I am going to be teaching so can't show them just yet and really haven't had much time do do anything else lately.
My new studio is nearly finished; it just needs some finishing touches and then i can show you my space.
I also am late in acknowledging this but i was the lucky winner of this beautiful handmade journal and purse from the lovely Anna. I was so thrilled to receive the journal and can't wait to add to the beautiful work Anna has already done. Thank you Anna:)
In the absence of arty offerings by myself I offer you some inspiration from some blogging friends of mine, enjoy.
Paula, (Journal Artista) continues to amaze with her weekly Ustream videos and sharing of journal pages and techniques.

This Friday I am off to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Melbourne and will try really, really hard not to buy things I don't absolutely, positively need..... well maybe I won't buy things that won't fit in the car to bring home :)
I'm not a quilter but I just love the different patterns on the materials and find them inspirational for art journal backgrounds.
Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door is also going to be there with her stamps and things so I may just have to have one of her new stamps to try it out.
My quote today, which is actually an affirmation is from another of my favourite authors, Cheryl Richardson. I can feel a journal page coming from this affirmation
