It has been 11 months since I have uploaded anything. I have wanted to come back to blogging for a few months now, but hesitated because I was not sure I had the time to devote to it. The last thing I want to do is hit this hard and then tap out. Part of me thinks that blogging is in the past. It is fading out. With Facebook pages and Instagram accounts that are easily updated on one's phone the thought of actually sitting down at a computer to do a blog entry seems like a lot of work -- especially considering you may not feel as though you have anything new to share with the world. Now that I am back home again and not holding down a job I really have missed my hobby. I also have missed completing challenges online as well as being on a design team (although right now I am far to rusty to even try out. However, with practice I hope to be back in the saddle again). It is for those reasons that I come back to this blog. My home in the cyber world.
One of my goals this year is to complete an art journal! I am using the prompts provided by "Journal 52"( Click here to check it out) for the year. I decided to use the prompt "Strange Word". Although, I turned into my favorite word: SERENDIPITY which means finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for. This word to me is happy, whimsical and fun! I wanted my page to reflect those characteristics.
As a side note, I have come to terms with, at least for me, art is about experimenting with different mediums and techniques then fixing them. Nine times out of 10 my finished projects are a result of something going wrong, but it works for me. It is my serendipity!
I liked how the crowns turned out and decided I wanted a little sparkle on the page. To achieve the sparkle I used a yellow glitter glue on the hair.
Until next time -- happy scrappy!
