It's Getting There


Yep, I can feel it trickling in. I think I'm about half full now, so all is good. And a big ol' Thank You for all of the "well" wishes... pun intended... heehee. No really, even though I knew it would fill back up, your encouraging comments have helped a lot.



A couple of other things that have helped too, I think, was junquing with a friend and just getting outside and taking a walk. I think part of it was "winter blues". I know down here we haven't had it nearly as bad as the East Coast or the Mid West, but as per North Texas weather, it's constantly up and down. Seriously you just never know what you will get from day to day. But, it has warmed up and I think Spring is really finally here.



And speaking of "winter blues", I thought I would share a few of my art journal pages. Remember the art journal from this post and how I said I was going to try really hard this time to fill it? Well, I'm quite proud of myself, simply because I haven't gotten off track with it so far.



Back to "winter blues".
So I signed up for Kari's Year of Color blog back in January and decided then that I would use my art journal to help me explore all that is shared through out the year in the blog. Well, I'm sure you've figured it out by now, if you are not subscribed to it, that the colors for January were blue and white. I took my white to a more ivory and cream shade, however.
Anyway, all the pictures here today, are just a few of the journal entries from January.



Again, Thank You! Now, I'm off for another inspiring Spring walk. Have a beautiful Monday.

Yay, you! I'm so glad you're feeling creative again! I'm with Marianne, if this is your "running dry" creation... LOL. Of course, I'd like to do as well as you even on your "BAD" days! Love the way you're working the blue and white together.

Hi Alisa~

I hear you about the weather and how it can affect people! You know, my mom and her whole side of the family are Texans and I so wish I lived down there! I would take your weather over Indiana's any day!! :)
Thankfully, it's Spring now, and maybe that can get our creative juices flowing!!
I love your art journal! That is so pretty and your handwriting is incredible!!
Have a nice week Alisa!!

Oh my, I have to agree with many others, if this is what you create when your low on ideas, I would love to see what you can come up with when you are full steam ahead!! Fantastic work. I look forward to seeing more of your journals. Debby
