The three Muses "Quotes or Quips"

Here is my contribution to the three muses. I am sure that ultimately we create our own reality. Active dreaming and imagining is a part of that...

One World One Heart

Many of you will know there is another One World One Heart event taking place between January 25 and February 15

I will have 2 give aways. One includes two pieces of art, an altered CD and a Gothic Arch with a polymer clay frame. The other is a brand new still packaged unmounted stamp set. I will announce my winners with the help of a random number generator on February 15 at mid day GMT. I am happy to ship world wide to anyone who has an active blog. Hope everyone visiting will have a fantastic time riding the magic carpet. Can't wait for the event to start tomorrow.

The Three Muses "There is something in the air"

Another theme from the elements at the three Muses. Lots of possibilities with this one. There was a very first hint of spring in the air here, I think that inspird me for this.

The eyes see

I decided that 2010 would be the year when I would learn how to draw and paint proper portraits and figures. I would like to use less and less ready images and more and more my own figures in my artwork. But of course you have to start small. I found this brilliant face drawing class by Monica Zuniga at the hands and heart Ning site
Monica takes you really through it step by step. Here are my first efforts at drawing realistic eyes. Unfortunately the scans have come out pretty badly...

Mixed Media Monday "Wings"

I have not been able to blog for ages, nor did I have time to create art much... work was just too busy, also I had a friend to stay. But things are slowly getting back to normal and I decided to use some of the themes on challenge blogs as art journal prompts. The theme at MMM is wings, and as I seem to be right into angels at the moment,that was easy. I also wanted to use one of the images of William Bouguereau. I got a whole Lunagirl CD full of them. I love his paintings and I know I will use them again and again. Angel and girl don't really go together in style, so I tried to tie it together with the colours I used....

The Three Muses "Angels of Friendship"

My journal page today is about friendship and is dedicated to you dear friends who come and visit my blog. Your kind words and encouragement mean a lot to me. Visiting your blogs gives me daily inspiration and as I was working in my journal today I felt so grateful for all the wonderful contacts I have made in blogland.
When I noticed that the theme at "The Three Muses" was Angels this week I felt really happy. All of my blogfriends are like angels to me:0)

A rather melancholy day

Today was the day that my oldest son left again after having been home for two weeks over the Christmas period. This page was the result of me working through my feelings about it....

Another page

Managed to complete another page today. I know I will not be able to keep this up when I go back to work next week, but it's great fun, while it lasts. For anyone who has not started on a journalling journey yet, I highly, highly recommend it!!!

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
