Time Flies!

Wow where did February go? can't believe we are in the last week.  I intended to blog before this but life and viruses took me over.  I've been feeling quite rough for the last two weeks but hopefully I'm on the mend now - I need to be as i'm off to the Artsy Crafty Tim Holtz event!!! I'm in the Friday morning group but will be there on Thursday evening as its an early start on Friday!.  I've not felt much like doing art at all and just seemed to stare at blank pages in my journal -nothing inspired me.  However I managed to do a couple of postcard size pieces over the last two days - sometimes tackling something a little smaller gets me started again. oops I meant to put these pics in the middle of my ramblings!

The little guy is a stampotique stamp, german scrap wings, dabber aqua and orange paint, grid stamp with distress rusty hinge, the music paper is from an old piano music book found in a charity book shop.
The little lady (Love her) is a Tim Holtz stamp ( I think!) the background colours are distress inks dusty concord and olive green which I spritzed with water , background stamps are paper artsy and the stars are from a tim holtz set.   It felt good to be making art again! get me in the mood for Friday!

I have also treated myself to a new book - Art at the Speed of Life by Pam Carriker Its fab am going to enjoy trying out all the techniques and ideas in it. worth a look if your looking for inspiration.and motivation.

I've started my March calendar page I must warn you that I'm Irish (all be it Northern Ireland) so expect a lot of Green!

If your'e lucky enough to be at Artsycrafty on Thursday or Friday have a fabulous time.  Look out for me on Friday I'll be in the corner with a box of tissues and a red nose!

Have a creative weekend
