ask a friend round who wants to play! My friend Sue came round and spotted my Scripture cards which I did all through last year and wanted to make some too. I couldn't say no of course, so we took out paints and stencils and stamps and played and I'll show those in another post soon.
It was just the encouragement I needed.....it was fun! So next day I picked up my art journal and though I still felt 'rusty' and like I didn't have much inspiration I got on with it. Here is my page:
I started off with a bluey wintry backround, inspired by the wintry theme at Art Journal Journey. I'd felt like I was hitting a brick wall when I was in the middle of the doldrums so it seemed like a good thing to add, plus I love doing walls!
I added more stencilling and finally the hearts which is the theme for the current challenge at PaperArtsy and seeing all the projects with hearts which I love using was also wonderful inspiration.
This heart was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine:
I stencilled some hearts with texture paste and sponged in red for a splash of colour:
and I added trailing string to each heart to make them seem like they are floating up and away:
Do you ever get in the creative doldrums and what do you do to get out of them?
