☆ More Journal Page Play [Friday Art]


I have had a super busy week, I have managed to finish off a few commissions, start a few more, organise + execute a family dinner for Bean's fifth birthday (Oh my baby is 5!), organise the return of her three Barbies who have been on 'holidays' for a couple of years (a long story I might share another day!).

But while I have been busy, it has been a good busy + an organised busy, so instead of feeling flat and uninspired and bone weary, I feel energised + accomplished + inspired.

So inspired that even after a whole day of painting yesterday, (thank you Beastie for being such a good baby + sleeping heaps!!) I went back into the studio after dinner + finished off this journal page, started a few weeks ago.

Sometimes everything comes together - colours, posture, an expression, some whimsey + last night felt like one of those nights...


How has your week been? Smooth sailing or have you been derailed? (oops mixing of metaphors here!) I would love to hear how it's gone for you!

(And speaking of leaving me a comment - I want to share with everyone, that I always try to email everyone who takes the time to leave me a comment, a reply, but sometimes I am unable to because apparently google + has changed settings + your email may have been changed to no-reply-bogger. So while I try to reply to everyone, I sometimes don't have the time search for an email address. So if you haven't heard back from me that may be why!)

By the way - have you had a chance to enter this months awesome give away? It has a week left to go - I hope you will pop over to enter!

  5. Your colors do certainly "come together", Kirstin. I love the pinks because they aren't Pepto Bismol pink but a softer grayer mauve-related color. Your face is beautiful.

  12. Lovely and happy journal page - that is a wonderful girl and I love the background. Glad that you are feeling energized in spite of the busyness. It's a good thing that only the kids get older and we don't (LOL)
