Feeling the creativity!



I have been a bit uninspired recently and felt I needed to spark my creativity! I found the most wonderful videos by Teesha Moore, on how exactly to make an art journal, bind it, paint it, collage it and embellish it! so I was inspired and felt I had to give it a go!
Well I made the 18 page book from a large sheet of water colour paper...yes really!, bound it and had great fun painting all different colour backgrounds. The cut out pics from magazines and collaged, and then finally the pen work, all on the first 3 pages!! I loved it! I have a lot of trouble letting go with my art, I can be very up tight, so this is a good excersise for me! I followed Teeshas examples, so the next few pages will be more "me"

Heres the link to her videos on youtube
