Colour me positive

Detail of the strip along the edge...

And now for something totally different... I went to a jewellery making class yesterday and made this spinner ring using my maternal grandmother ‘s wedding ring as the spinner!

Our leader at Art Prompts Galore is having some health issues at the moment so has not been giving us a list of “wacky alternative days” recently....I decided to try to find a/her list.....and located one!

And so I have created a couple more spreads in last years journal, at this rate I shall actually be able to complete it and go back to previous years that still have space and fill those too....happy dance!

                         The colour of this one is slightly off as the sunshine comes & goes!

The storm is here... or’s really not too bad here!

A practice piece..

Colour me positive.

Space test, pen test, works better on smooth paper than watercolour paper!

Well, we are past the Battle of Hastings when we first became part of Europe.....and Brexit day is past too.....all that’s left is to sit out all the arguing about who gets what.....just like a D.I.V.O.R.C.E!

I just kept on making art in the hope of retaining my sanity and, fingers crossed, I may yet succeed!

Most recently I’ve got

Life documented

Then comes Colour me positive 

And another wacky day (handwriting)

Art journal journey has a new prompt for February so I’m going to be working on those next!

Home sweet home

It’s a week since we set off from our chalet in the alps and that was some trip.....we had barely been on the road an hour before some idiot decided to overtake us as we were overtaking a lorry! End result .....the car is scraped down both sides but we are all safe & the car can be fixed.

We eventually got home on Sunday and life is getting back to the usual routine....

I have managed a little art as I’ve stolen 5 minutes here and there....

We have a lot of new members at Life documented so the idea was to use watercolours and summarise where we come easy matter for me when I have spent so much time travelling!

Bill picked up a leaflet on Newark quite by chance whilst we were on the ferry....perfect for the prompt as this is where my parents families both came from, I stamped a couple of thistle images for the Scottish link, Libya is where I first moved abroad to and started my education in French which in turn led to further education in France and my parents moving there. The map strip is a token sign of one of my passions.

Colour me positive is again a quote 

Art prompts galore are late this week so no wacky holidays yet.....
