Art Journaling From The Couch
Welcome my friends! I have missed you all so much. I have had a challenging week, a week full of migraines and coughing. I have made a doctors appointment for Monday morning to figure out why I've been so sick, so frequently these past few months.
When I am not feeling well and can't get into my art room, I take my art to the couch or my bed. This week I took my little tote of supplies and my Moleskine and spent some time colouring.
I enjoyed the relaxing feeling of colouring with coloured pencils (pencil crayons as I call them). I had previously painted these random faces with watered down craft paint, so adding colour with the pencils was easy. These faces were inspired by the wonderful Dede
I also had a great time playing with the Sennelier Oil pastels that I got on clearance at Michael's in the pages below. It was great just to learn how they blend and layer. I didn't worry about the outcome of these five faces, it was about the calming process of creating them.
I also enjoyed finishing a few pages that were partially complete with some doodling and bits of ephemera.
It has been a challenging week, I am truly exhausted. Through this exhaustion I found comfort in doing some art, playing with supplies I don't use all the time.
Thank you so much for all the love and support, I am truly thankful to have you all in my life.
Much Love! xo
Ps, back tomorrow with a little link party! ;)
