Am I Crazy?

Last night I did a very bright and colourful entry in my art journal. Yesterday marked one year since I started in my current job and I wanted to celebrate it. Below is a snippet of what I put in my journal. My new butterfly flourish, an attempt to use some paper doileys, viridian green (love it!) and ...  my very favourite ... gloss gel medium! I've never worked with it before but I love it! I was going to use is again tonight in my journal but I needed to evict some pesky little creatures from my girl's hair, so that took precedence!

What I did manage to do tonight in between hair treatments and combing was do a sketch on a canvas board for a Christmas gift that I'm going to paint. I can't wait to share what it is - after Christmas! I don't want to ruin the surprise for the recipient just in case he looks at my blog page! I do ask myself if I'm crazy to take on painting this (yes, it's a bird!), but I'll never know if I don't try!

Anyhoo...that's it for today's creativity. Sleep beckons, and hopefully another early morning like I had today where I worked on my commission piece, added some detail to two small canvas boards for Christmas gifts and admired yesterday's journal entry!


  1. Love the creations! ~perfect for AEDM ~ namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor)

  2. Wonderful journal pages! Ah yes, it's that time of year when those pesky little creatures love to make their presence known at schools. We've been lucky to escape them for the past five years.

    I'm keen to see how your Christmas gift turns out. I'm sure the recipient will love it.
