Over the past few weeks, I have really been inspired to create some more artistic pieces. I still love crafting but am exploring how to develop what I've learnt over the last couple of years and combining it with the mixed media art I've loved forever. There is no reason why delicate vintage lace can not be combined with tactile layers of oil paint and Hipstamatic photos. Text and writing has lifted my spirits when times have been tough and journalling as a documentation of life, has been something I've done since a child.
Inspiration journals and artists sketchbooks fill me with excitement and so I aim to put one together to try and collect all my ideas, techniques and the inspirational artists. Today I have been blighted by some nasty bug that has confined me to my bed. I watched a beautiful film about the life of Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
