Art Journal 2014 Title Page




Today I enjoyed a lovely few hours with my friend Chris creating some art and setting up a blog for Chris to showcase some of her artwork.  Her blog can be found at http://chrisemers.blogspot.co.uk

This year I want to get into art Journalling more after dabbling with it over the past year or so.  AJ bought me an extra large art journal from TKMax which is perfect for me to create in and try new techniques.  I'm looking forward to filling it and growing with my art throughout this year.  Today I created the first Page.  The quote which I thought was perfect for the way I'm currently thinking about art is by Pablo Picasso and reads Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.  
It resonates with me as I definitely need some art relief from my everyday life and as I have also written on this first Page - I want 2014 to be the year of art cleansing my soul, of finding myself and restoring my spirit.


Good Evening from Pickle Land
Speak to you very soon
Love Lesley

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.




Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.




However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
