Music On / World Off

Music is the last true voice of the human spirit, 
it can go beyond language, beyond age
 and beyond colour straight to the mind and heART of all people.
Ben Harper

Sharing a quick music inspired layout completed last month 
at the rad Flutterby Designs Retreat out Tamworth way on the grounds of Lake Keepin-it Real.
(very little country music to be heard-yippee) but lots of cool tracks on Anitas i-pod
Using a combination of Stencils from Flutterby Design and CWS this piece celebrating this
 rockin Music man fell together in a flash. HB to him.
House paint, Thickers,Stamping ,Me & my Big Idea music notes,a little more rad Flutterby Design Flair love and this piece was complete. 
Music gives a soul to the universe,
 wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination,
and life to everything else.

 Music is the strongest form of Magic.
Marilyn Manson.

Peace , Love and Music x

Be Brave with Art Dolls

Howdy Folks , long time no Blog, well it seems that way.
 Lots of Arty stuff happening ,for other rad sites but I seem to neglect my home here.
So anyway,I've been playing with Art Dolls from Mischief Circus
They are fabulous to add instant impact to your art journal.
I've created a fab background in my journal 
Next I fussy cut the Art Doll and then Matt Medium'd it into my journal
After appropriate drying time I attacked the page with my Posca Paint Pen to add a little fun details 
Be Brave and scribble or doodle over your page.
i finished with the Stabilo Magic pencil around the Art Doll to add depth tho the overall look.
Here's the result ... I love it !
Big thanks to Heather for always taking time to comment .
You are awesome xx

He's My Bestie

Sharing a piece recently from the Colour Blast Blog.
If you would like to know how i did this , check out the website HERE 

Art Angel

Howdy Bloggers. Here today to share a mistake made right.
You know those times when you make a background and its not at all what you wanted.
Yeah this is one of those pages .
I vomited colour onto a page and it was blerrrrr. 
wtf do I do with this mistake??
Well, firstly hit it with a little Colour Blast coloured texture and look at it as an Art Journal piece. 
I drew in a face ,body then added a wing to make the most of the  colour and texture on the page,added some house paint drips, waited till it was dry and painted out the background.
Because it was a 12"x 12" page and NOT in my art journal ,
 turning it into a Layout was an after thought .
Here's the piece before scrapping it .
A little stamping, some Stabio pencil magik, a few butteflies ,muslin,tissue paper 
plus a few embellies highlight this Art Journal Scrap Page about Camp Mojos dressup night 2015 and sharing it with my Charlies Angels roomies, Jo and Peg.

         Have you every created a mistake that you made good? 
Share a link with me, Id love to see it !

getting my artJOURNAL on

 "Keep busy doing the things you love and destiny will find you"
 Howdy Bloggers , another art journal update.
Do you struggle finding appropriate words to incorporate on to your art journal pieces?
I'm not a big lover of cliches,or single word titles(not that i haven't used them before) but finding something that is interesting and works with my pieces is sometimes difficult.
For these two pieces I've grabbed my phone and googled 'life & love' quotes for the above piece and 'heart' for this piece below.Up pops a a plethora of known and obscure quotes and one finds the best quote that work for ones piece.
" Let my soul smile through my heart ,
 and my heart smile through my eyes,
that I may scatter rich smiles to sad hearts "
For this piece I tried to make it a little random.
So I love listening to music when i get arty,it helps my work flow
 and I find it inspiring to the whole creative process.
This week here in Oz ,it was Australia Day and 
the annual Triple J Hottest 100 is always a part of our celebration.
As I'm listening to the radio,I wanted to create a piece that incorporated words into my background. so I shazzam'd the Courtney Barnett song on the radio, Pedestrian At Best and used the words within the song to facilitate the background and the direction of the piece.
From that ,this Silhouette piece was born.
I would love to know how you add journaling to your art?
