October Art Journaling

As you can see my lyme green paint and I are becoming best buddies again. My black IDentipen and my blue and white Edding 751 markers got in on the fun. Parts of my black table have been introduced to Tattered Angel's electric blue glimmer mist. I'm slowly getting reacquainted with my art supplies and am rediscovering the relaxing and therapeutic effects of art journaling and of crafting in general.

I didn't do a lot of art journaling in october and some of it is too private to show here. So how about links to a few artists who's work I like to check out for inspiration?

I have been visiting Danny Gregory's blog more often lately. I can't remember how I first heard about him, but I've had his books 'Everyday matters' and 'The creative license' on my shelf for at least four years. His other books are on my wishlist. Yes, Sinterklaas and people who feel compelled to buy me a birthday gift, that was a HINT ;-) And still, despite how inspirational his books are to me, I can barely get myself to draw. I know that the only way to become better at it is to just start and keep practising. Just need to kick myself in the butt. It's not just his art that draws me to his books and blog, but also his ideas on creativity.

I have known Marit for years now, you might have noticed the link to her blog in the side menu. I think we met online through Scrap in Style. We've also met in person a couple of times. She has had formal art education and does a lot of mixed media/art journaling. Check out her blog and galleries for inspiration. And if you live in the Dutch province of Zeeland or would be willing to make the trip, you might want to check out her workshops!
