Lady Bug Journal Page. Jane Davenport Inspired. =)

My first journal entry in my new beautiful journal that I brought from Jane Davenport, during a recent visit to her gorgeous store 'The Institute of Cute'.
Obviously inspired by Jane's store and her love for cute lady bugs.

Speaking of Jane, she has a new online workshop 'Supplies Me'
 Supplies Me is an online workshop about art supplies with an emphasis on use in visual/art Journals. Jane has designed a program of intensive (not scary!) drawing lessons, to truly understand and unlock the potential of your art supplies and journal. The focus in this workshop is on faces and the figure. So as you are experimenting with using your art supplies in different ways, you will also be learning the basic structure of the feminine face and how to shade, colour and render it. Jane will also share her fashion illustration experience and get you drawing the female figure with ease. 
So if this sounds as good to you as it does to me, you may sign up here.

No, I am not an affiliate, I just love her work. =D

As usual, your feedback is most welcome. Prints will be available from my store shortly.

Inspired by Mogdalini

Inspired by Mogdalini 1 of 2 by Blissful Pumpkin

Inspired by artist Amedeo Modigliani. 
The theme for August's ATC swap over at was 'Inspired by famous paintings'. These are my two contributions, which now belong to Beth Gould. You can find her blog at Dreaming about Tomorrow.

I'd love to hear what you think. 

After I created these two ladies, I was still feeling pretty inspired by Modigliani's artwork, so I created several of my own girls. Stay tuned, as I will include them in an upcoming post.

You are exactly where you are meant to be

I've always liked to think that this is true, 'You are exactly where you are meant to be'. I created this a few weeks ago now, maybe even a month ago, as I've always liked this saying. I had planned to post it a couple of weeks ago and didn't get around to it.

I experienced a death in my family last week, when my dear Aunty passed away, which I'm trying so desperately to keep out of my mind. In reference to what has happened over the past week, I am not as satisfied with my work, as the words just don't ring as true to me now. How can my Aunty be where she is supposed to be??????
