Willowing along...

Yesterday was the start of free Art of the Heart class over on Willowing.ning (there's a link over on the right if you'd like to join in).  The class runs for four weeks and each week is a different project.  This weeks project is an art journal page - see why I joined!

Part of the class is drawing a representation of yourself on the page.  I have never been much cop at faces, feet yes, faces, no, bodies yes, faces no.  So I had a little play in my mini AJ first and here is the result....


Not bad, but by no means great, but more importantly I thoroughly enjoyed doing it.  I'm almost done on the double page spread in my bigger journal, although (don't laugh too loud) I have wonky eyes and a moustache on that one....hmmmmm.  maybe my inner self is trying to tell me something I hadn't realised...I'm wonky or have a facial hair problem.  I've certainly never noticed the latter, and I'm sure Chris would have offered me his shaver if that had been the case, so it must be the former.

So after this expect to see more of "me" on my pages.  I love it because it's yet a different style.

Doesn't it feel good when you try something out of your comfort zone and discover that you love it??
