Ive been playing around with making backgrounds and journal doodling for the Artistic Alchemy Workshop I signed up for all week and been having the time of my life 🙂 Ive only managed to complete one page so far as Ive been having far too much fun playing!!
The page below is all about my personal art space and how I get ‘into the zone’ to create and make stuff. I dont have a garden as we live in a block of flats, theres a communual courtyard but I wouldnt go in there if you paid me cos theres too many nutjobs around here!
Inside our flat is not much better because its tiny and cramped , we’ve got too much clutter and theres simply not enough room to swing our cat 🙂 Even my art desk is piled high with junk! I darednt touch anything for fear of causing an avalanch! I supposed I could tidy it up then I could use it BUT …..Im having far too much fun creating art to do chores!!!
To find my mojo and get into the zone to make art I find I can just switch off and tune out, maybe its because Im deaf that I find it so easy to switch off and shut out the outside world and make stuff….this got me thinking about a virtual garden in my mind and since Ive been picturing this garden in my mind and I can picture it quite clearly – a gorgeous place to create and journal in!
Ive uploaded some of my work in progress pages on my flickr here:
