What Dreams May Come

Hi Bloggy Friends,

Wanderlust 2017 week 4 and we have a rest from lessons so we can play with some of the techniques we've learned so far, and join in with some of the fun activities which Kasia and Jamie have devised for us.

First, I decided to have a go at the Wanderlust Book challenge (though I'm not going to work in a separate book so I just found an empty page in my art journal). The challenge for this month is to complete the phrase "I'm ready for ...." and I had intended to finish it with "... new growth" which works on several levels for me in January. However, as the page developed, the phrase, "What Dreams May Come" popped into my head and wouldn't go away, so I wrote that directly onto the picture with a pencil ...


I may go in and work on this some more, but for the moment, I decided to call it a day and move on to something else. It's getting easier to just play in my art journal and not get hung up on the outcome. AND it's getting easier to paint layers over the top of what I've already done ... in fact, now I'm talking about it, I'm itching to go and do just that :o)

Thanks for visiting me today, see you again soon!

Good for you Annie - this looks great just the way it is. I'd like some of your freedom with Art to rub off onto me this year.

Oh my gosh! That's YOU. You drew/ painted / sketched YOU! That is sooo clever! I couldn't touch it. I'd be afraid to ruin what I'd done...but I guess that's what you're talking about pushing through barriers..... must be fun to be able to play and create and then do it all over again!!!
