currently creative ...........

 Hello - hope you are having a great week.  I'm linking up with Give a Girl a blog this week to share what I'm currently creating ...............................

 About a month ago or so, I decorated the cover of a journal ..... in an arty kind of way ** reflecting the things I love - paper, yarn and paint. 

 I love how it turned out - it has heaps of texture on it, little words and notes and includes a photo of a little spot in my craft room.
 Even the back has texture and words!
 So being my first art journal, I found I really needed some direction and inspiration before I started ........................................
A bit of searching on the net and I came across Daisy Yellow Art!

This one here really appealed to me, so I've made a start, getting inspiration from the prompts and video tutorial.  Can I say, I'm so excited that I've finally started!!! Here I'm sharing what I've currently created on my first page --

 I covered my page in gesso before drawing on the starburst design - I like the way the paint flows on your page when you have gesso as your base.  I've used a waterproof black ink pen.

I've used watercolour paints and crayons to add the colour to my page.
I still need to put in some finishing touches and add a little more depth - but I love how it's turning out. 
I can't wait to share more each week - thanks for coming by ☺

Creating with love + happiness ♥

HI Chantelle, thanks for your visit to my blog today... I love to see all the different takes on the 'starburst' tangent... how lovely that you integrated those 3D ornaments - it gives the page something special! Hug from Holland, Marit
