I have decided to move my blog over to Tumblr as it is easier for me to post my regularly from my ipod. Plus nowadays I don’t have much time for written blog posts (being self employed keeps me very busy).
Here is the link http://journal-addicted.tumblr.com/ I reblog others journals as well as my own.
Or if you prefer I also have a personal blog over on tumblr where I reblog strega fashion, cats, weird stuff, vulture culture etc http://goingnowhereslow.tumblr.com/
Thank you for following this blog though guys 🙂 I have enjoyed it but time to change to something thats more manageable for me.
I can’t believe I haven’t posted here since March, time has been flying by this year. Before we know it it will be Christmas. Yay 😀
Over the past few months I have been mostly working, making dreads for my shop, Black Sunshine. As well as colouring in and doodling. I have acquired a few new journals and books since I last posted, so expect to see some new posts about them.
I also have quite a few outfit photos to share with you guys along with some great charity shop clothing finds.
So stick around and let me know what you guys have been up too?
At the begining of the year I came across three china masks in a charity shop. At the time I had no idea what to do with them but at £1 each I snapped them up anyway.
So they stayed as they where (above) for a while until one day I had an idea after digging out my out water colour set.
And here is how they look today
The other week my lovely friend gave me an amazing gift which was this ‘fanciful faces’ colouring book.
I have only completed a few of the pages so far but I love it!
The other day I felt like painting, which is something I have not felt like doing in a very long time. Mainly because I have found it a quite difficult medium to work with in the past. But I decided to dig my old water colours out and give it a go.
These are my first two experiments so far I find the back ground washes of colours the most enjoyable to do and hope to improve on the black silhouette ‘doodles’.
None the less, not to bad for my first attempt in quite a few years. What do you think? 🙂
Do you have any tips or hints for working with water colour?
Since my last Anti Journal post I have completed some more pages so here they are.
Time for an outfit related post today! Its been quite cold here over the last couple of weeks so I have had a chance to practice my clothing layers.
