Value creative friends..


The prompt at milliande was to make figures with gessoed, painted newspaper bodies. For the background I have used some pale blue and pale green paint pot testers from wilkinsons..I love using paint pots for backgrounds as they come in lovely colours and are only £1! I think friendship is so important. I have made some great arty friends through the internet and have met two in real life who are now my good friends (Linda & Pat)...we get together now and again and have great arty fun. So whether in reality or online value creative friends..

These gals are very very sweet - I love how they are 3 different heights. Super journaling too.

The online world is great for bringing together like-minded people - no one really 'got' what I did until I started blogging and all of a sudden I 'met' loads of people who loved similar styles of artwork. This has helped me to develop my confidence and ability. I have now met some in reality which is such fun.

You have been an inspiration to me over the past couple of months and I have finally start an art journal due to the influence of you and creative women just like you. Blogland is a wonderful place to find courage.

Beautiful collage, I love the faces on your art work, so distinctivley you! Lovely sentiment on your journalling. When I started art journalling I wasn't sure what I was doing and it was all the positive, wonderful comments on my blog that encouraged me to carry on with it. It has been so wonderful to discover so many amazing talented artists (like yourself) through blogland.
