I am still working on my art journals. Same thing really. I gather inspiration from what others do and from pictures I find. A few are just my own imaginings.
I liked making a stamped on background to just make it a little different
I found it difficult to remember what Tulips looked like haha, anyway, I made a couple of attempts
The next done with coloured pencils.
This little picture was a practice from a book of watercolour projects, I modified it somewhat and then one of my favorite poems came to mind.
This one was just made up, a misty morning. Then I did a poem to go with it but only wrote the first 4 lines.
A bowl of flowers
This next one is another made up picture and its a practice for white flowers, to make them stand out from the background.
I did several more but will save for another post. I really appreciate it when I get some criticism because that helps me see what I do not. I love your comments
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
