Before I start I’d like to ask, How are you and how was your week? Did you have anytime to do some things you wanted to, cross some things of your to do list, spend time with people you like? I am really enjoying writing blog posts, but sometimes I feel a little bit like it’s all about me and if you met me in real life you’d know that I’m not like that, I’d be wanting to know about you too.
This week in my watercolour class I was making a big colour chart with watercolour pencils and learning more about colour along the way. I love learning about colour and colouring lots of squares was quite relaxing. Hopefully I can share the finished product next Sunday.
I got to try some more new collage techniques and combine them with my art journaling, or creative journaling. I also enrolled to do a class over at Big Picture classes called Art journaling 101 by Caylee and Lauren and felt so inspired after it to keep pursuing the art journaling (starting that night!). Lots of useful information for a beginner like me. I have a free month and can see that will keep me busy learning new things.
Lucky me got to go away for the weekend with my good friend on our annual creative retreat. It started as a scrapbooking retreat years ago but has morphed into a creative/relaxing/ drinking wine and chatting weekend. I was a bit reluctant to get out my lap top and face the overwhelm of being so far behind, but to my surprise after a while found that I could just enjoy the creative process of making a digital scrapbook of some of our photos. I also noticed that it was a bit like collage. This is our cat who looks like he wanted to come to!
One of my favourite things to do is walk on the beach in the morning, and this is one of my favourite places. Beach walks are just the best don’t you think?
So now to prepare for the busy week ahead. I hope you have a good one too.
p.s 1+4 = life is a Pip Lincolne inspired post. I’m enjoying this idea so much, thanks Pip 🙂
