Hope you are having a sunshine yellow Monday! Mine is a bit blue as Blogger decided that she doesn't want to load my project for today. If you want to blame someone - she's the one. In the end Windows explore just ignored me and I ended up using Google. Well, at least I got it done.
Now for the project: I always try to do something new. Not always successful but at least I keep the experience (and sometimes the goodies). Well, art journaling will be my 2013 attempt at trying something new.
I can't believe it but I really suck at this. After I've wasted about a whole block of water color paper (and they don't come cheap) I decided to copy something and then move forward. Not even the copy was up to my expectations!
So, I tried my own idea - AGAIN!
Still not the best attempt that I've seen but I'm going to live with it and keep trying - maybe it has to grow on you. This effort will go on the first page of MY LIFE MY WAY 2013. Perfect for IMPERFECT ME.
And it's going to The Play Date Cafe challenge of the week. These are their colors:
My blue was a bit too blue but that's because I couldn't decide on what type of paint to use. First I tried watercolors and then ended up using fabric dye and wax crayons. Please, if any of u Bloglanders knows about a great tutorial, let me know!! I've seen some but they only show how to do it and not what to use. I don't want to go out and buy more stuff - want to use what is in my stash.
That's it from me. I'll be back tomorrow to share some more of my projects. Please come back to play.
PS. For my non SA Bloglanders:
HOOP = HOPE
VREDE = PEACE
VREUGDE = JOY
LIEFDE = LOVE
