First of all I’d like to thank everyone for the encouragement! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing this, all 7200 diamonds of it! It took me about 30 hours in total, and I dropped approximately 30 beads in the process.
I don’t like the wolf’s nose, it’s not obvious enough so I’m actually going to replace the beads before I seal the picture, if I can 🙂
Here you go!
I hope you like him, and I hope my friend does too ! 🙂
Really, my workshop is more like a glorified shed. Part storeroom and part art room it serves well. Except that in summer, I fry, in winter I freeze!
However, I’ve been doing my painting and whatever else in the house, sitting at the table I also use for work. I decided that it was warm enough to go back to the shed, gain a bit of peace and clean up a bit.
Below is the desk I salvaged from all the stuff piled on top of it. I have MUCH more to do, but that can wait until tomorrow! I’m really looking forward to getting back up there and putting some music on and chilling out:)
Sometimes art journaling has to be done with a degree of secrecy. This is because you probably don’t want everyone to read all your words. When I was 14 my mum read my diary, not that it was scintillating reading or anything, but I wasn’t impressed and to this day my journaling is sort of hidden as in this picture.
I wrote and painted over what I had written, though probably it’s still legible, and in this instance I don’t mind because it’s positive and true.
How do you do the words in your journal? Do you do what I do? Do you do everything in pictures? I’m interested to know 🙂
