Hi everyone & Haaaaapy Monday!
I hope you all had a very enjoyable weekend with some crafty time thrown in!!
I am without my iphone, which is bound to make life very tricky for me this week.
I am hoping it will be back in working order soon but I have my doubts, seeing
as it just switched itself off without ever having given me any problems before.
I have been quite productive lately & have some new projects to share with you
later this week & am onto August now too, now that my Design Teams are less than
I have had for a while now I am hoping I may be able to get a bit ahead of myself for once!
And once again I jumped on the art journal wagon this weekend!
I created a very eclectic page & really enjoyed it. It is only my 2nd page
but it was quite enlightening for me to work on it in layers of painterly
texture & to actually experiment "for reals" which is not something I do
too much on my scrapbooking pages as I have more tried & tested recipes
for those, to give me the results I require. Here I actually PLAYED &,
even though this WAS for a design team assignment, it was just on a deeper
level of true artistic freedom than I have really ever experienced before in this field.
Which brings me to this quote, by Saul Bass.
I've got to the point now where I no longer try to think up clever answers
to non-creative people's questions. Why do I do this?
Because I just want to create beautiful things...even if nobody cares :)
