Sometimes you fall down...

...because there is something down there that you are supposed to find.

Skip the blabla about...'here I am again' and 'is it really almost two month since I did a blogpost?'..
No blabla about blogging once a month or once a week....or about getting things done...
I bumped into this quote on Pinterest a while ago and this is more the way I feel now:

Which also means I'm hanging on to my art journaling...
Having two jobs, three kids, a dog and a household...I got a lot of balls to hold up in the air! But I'm getting pretty good in this juggling now and then I try to sneak in a ball named 'art journaling'...

I started a new 'Teesha Moore-style' journal, cutting up a big sized piece of watercolourpaper and simply binding it with a thread. I feel these journals work the best for me, having different sized pages.
Here is the first page..I even thought of making a 'before' and 'after' picture for you!
This is the page with only a painted background and the collage:

And the finished page:

I have the beginning of the next page also for you...

A lot of penwork still to be done...I hope to get back soon with the final result!

Wow mooi zeg! Ik vind dat ook zo'n leuke stijl, maar ben er nog niet mee begonnen. Jij bent er super goed in, echt knap hoe je verschillende afbeeldingen combineert! Groetjes Frea

Heee meis... 'hang in there' zeggen ze dan hè? Ik weet hoe het leven tegen kan zitten... en het is soms gewoon k**T dus ik ga niet nog meer clichés roepen hoor (je kent ze vast zelf ook al wel: 'what doesn't kill you..." enz.) Ik wens je gewoon hele fijne dagen met je kindertjes en/of art journal en een nieuw jaar waarin alles wat je maar wenst uitkomt. Liefs, Marit
