Lately I have become aware of how much my moods are affected by the sky. In the winter, in Edinburgh, the sky is frequently a great big flat expanse of nothingness, and this year it has really got me down. I think, with the exception of people, a big blue sky is what I miss most about Australia. Last week the sun was shining and the sky was blue and I felt so much happier, so I sat in the garden and did this page in my art journal.
First I painted my pages, then stuck some scraps of patterned papers down, and doodled. They reminded me of surfboards. When I had finished the page it looked really familiar and I think I have been inspired by something I saw somewhere on the internet. So, in the unlikely event that someone who visits my blog recognises this, please let me know.
In other news, it is Day 2 of the Kaisercraft giveaway. Today you have a chance of winning the Loire Valley collection. This is my favourite of the new collections. Remember to check back each day, leave a comment and be in with a chance.
Also Gauche Alchemy has a little competition going to create a pice of art using something recycled. Why not challenge yourself to do something a little different this week?
