Travel Journal Sneeky Peek & WOYWW

Here is a sneaky peek at my mixed media art journal that I used while I was in Europe recently, as promised.


I quickly whipped up a travel size watercolour journal to fit into my carry/hand bag that I kept with me throught my travels, using 300gm watercolour pages as well as some beautiful scrapbooking pages. Yes the front cover lacks some pizazz,  but that's a job for another day.

 This is the AMAZING Peerless colour palette I made before I left so I didn't have to take too many supplies. I learnt how to create this from the talented Jane Davenport. You can see how to make one for yourself here.


 I used only the Peerless Watercolours for this page.

Yes it did rain in London, surprise, surprise. A great excuse to play in my art journal I say.  ;)

The following two pages were inspired by Teesha Moore's unique style. This is certainly not my usual style, but was a lot of fun. The first page I finished off on returning home. The second page still needs some more work.




 I thought I would add this image of my studio to celebrate 'Whats on your Work desk Wednesday'. Artist Julia Dunnit's blog Stamping Ground hosts an international party full of a variety of artists sharing their work/studio spaces. So I thought this week I would join in. This is what my work table looks like at the moment. Lots of 'works in progress'........as usual. he he he. =)



Wherever you may be in the world I hope you are feeling blessed, loved and supported.
Hugs, Kyles =D

  3. I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.

  60. Even with mortgage loan rates at historic lows there are far more loans that get turned down then approved. This hurts potential home buyers and sellers. So what are the options? Renting to own a home is more than just a catch phrase. It does have its place in the world of home ownership. When done properly it can be a win-win for buyers and sellers. When banks aren't lending the seller essentially has the option to become the de facto 'lender of last resort'. room for rent
