Hey another day blogging my 3rd day in a row wow ! so had a good day today did my 5 mile power walk along the trails and it was so pretty. I am so lucky living right besides the trails and Belwood lake i see so many different birds and then there are the rabbits and chipmunks and the odd deer a few grass snakes and other little critters. It is so pretty and anti stressing i love it !
I also Went out for lunch and shopping with my best friend all in all a very relaxing day !
I decided to blog along with Effy on her 30 days of blogging yes i'm late but better late than never i say !
So today i bit the bullet and went for a Hemocode test well that was an event in itself ! I guess i have thick blood as i got every finger pricked two or three times and could only produce a morsel of blood. It just kept stopping. I am so desperate to find out what is causing my stomach upsets headaches and bloatedness. I am still waiting to see a GI specialist and a dietician but it seems to be taking forever.
So the Hemocode tests you for 250 items to see if you react to any of them i hope and pray it is a solution to how i'm feeling so i can get feeling well again.
Some days i feel so tired after eating i just can't be bothered doing anything but i try and force myself to do at least some art journalling. I find this so therapeutic and satisfying.

Hi, i am trying to catch up after being away in Cuba and doing some renovation work..
I have completed 3 more weeks of my life book lessons and they were all so much fun really loving being part it. I signed up for 21 secrets but i have not done any yet soon though !
I finished my Paper Traders March art journal page, the prompt this month was Live in the moment and we had to use an element of time you can join in this challenge anytime. there is a link at the side of my blog.
I have been busy doing a little art journaling ! I finished week 12 of my life book with Mindy Lacefield i struggled a little with this lesson but i am pleased with the outcome
I also joined a group called Art Geeks there is a link on my side bar ! i joined one of the challenges hosted by Kim Beinschroth and i really enjoyed playing along this is my page
I love Teesha Moore and so i tried to create a page using her techniques i love it !
And my last page is one i started quite a while ago it was one of those pages that just didn't go anywhere so eventually i have been adding colour here and there and then the white pen came out ! love the white pen !
Here is my art journal page for paper traders monthly challenge ! This challenge's prompt was Follow your heart and you had to use a heart on your page well i went with several ! so many layers of colour on these pages with paint inks gellatos, copic markers which i used with my airbrush, my home made washi tape etc etc. click on the picture for a close up ! thanks for looking.
I had a busy week but i did catch up with my life book so here i am sharing two art journal pages... the first was taught by Kelly Hoernig it was based on a game board layout for my years journey. My word for this year is TRY so i made this my game layout . I sometimes feel i don't try enough and give up easy or convince myself i just can't do it ! so i really want to try lots of new things this year and finish and learn projects and techniques. I have made myself the caterpillar but i do have my little skates on just the push i need .. and at the end of the year i am hoping to have evolved into a beautiful creative butterfly.
My next page was taught by Tamara Laporte and it was about courage ! I chose an old oak tree as my image for strength and courage. i love this tree to me this tree represents courage and endurance as well as strength and balance. I need to find balance in my life and the courage to find the strength i need to take me on my creative journey. I enjoyed this lesson.. click on the images for a closer view and i would love to hear from you ...
I have had a great couple of days creating, I had my friend over to play on tuesday and we got out our Gelli plates which we have never used ! so i am sharing a few of my prints with you... It was very trial and error with some real disasters which we managed to salvage by the end of the day ! we had so much fun.....
Today i had a try at making home made washi tape i used napkins and tissue paper which i stamped ! i found some double sided tape at the dollar store in three different widths so i thought i would just give it a go seems to have worked !
I also played around with my week 4 life book art journal page scales of light taught by Dion Dior what an interesting class !! although my hands are not perfect i loved the look i achieved the chinese symbol means light i apologize if it's not very accurate !
Happy monday friends !
