My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Journal January days 3 and 4

Day 3 was printmaking and you won't believe how long I have had some lino and cutting tools and done nothing with them.... so this was the perfect excuse to get them out and play.  Carving zebra stripes was difficult enough so I think it will be a while before I tackle anything more complicated but I do like the result.  I used acrylic paint to stamp with and it was a bit messy but fun too.

Day 4 was to do a face with zebra accents... went a bit crazy with this one...using copic markers, acrylic paint and oil pastels.  I have journalled in white but it doesn't show up in the photo... will have to re-do that I think.

I enjoyed day 4 so much that I got carried away and while I was sitting watching TV I did another page... this time using coloured pencils (they are fast becoming a favourite of mine).

Bit freaky this  My imagination is working overtime!!
Thanks for looking

These are great, I like all of them, but the work with the lino printing must have been difficult, love the coloured pencilled one. x
