My poor blog and all of its readers have been neglected lately! I have been so busy with school because of grad (which was amazing!) and diplomas are now here (1 out of 3 are done) and work too (the LSS that I worked at closed down! I was devastated! I recently started a new job as a busser at a local restaurant). Next fall I plan to attend school at Mount Royal University and take a few interior design courses. In the winter semester I am thinking about applying at Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) because I know I would love everything there but I dont know where I will end up. Life is such a challenge. Today I thought I would share with you one of my happier art journal pages in attempt to cheer myself up :) here it is! First I journaled all over this page using plack ink. This is a fun technique for me because I can jot down all my personal feelings then cover them up with layers of paint. It allows me to express myself in a creative way, yet people cannot read my private feelings. (this is the same idea I used on my previously posted page- "The Unknown") I find this to be a metaphor for myself because often I cover up my own feelings or keep them hidden. After writing everything down I added layers of paint and tissue paper.


Thanks for reading and putting up with my sporadic posting! Hope you enjoyed :)
