A different focus

A selection of some of my current journals

For a number of years I was joyfully involved in rubber stamping as an independent demonstrator and personal stamper. It was a way for me to be creative and share my positive wishes with my friends and loved ones through cards and handmade gifts. Over the past couple of years my focus has shifted.  I still love sharing my art and positive wishes with everyone but, I started to feel a little restricted using other peoples designs and artwork. I really wanted to branch out and begin using my own ideas from my own hand. I am not trained to be an artist, I am a work in progress. So, with a little trial and a lot of error I started doodling and trying this and that and keeping art journals to try my ideas in. I looked all around the internet and saw so much lovely work and at first and still, I have trouble identifying my own style but each new attempt brings me closer. 

There are several artists that I have drawn a lot of inspiration from.  Jane Davenport, Jane Lafazio, Alisa Burke, Claudia Nice, and Joann Sharpe to name just a few.  

So I am going to start a new little adventure called Friday Flips, a chance to flip through my art journal to share my baby steps toward...who knows what?!

small journal page, playing with paints and pitt pens and white gel pen.

Talk to you again soon.
