Express Your Creativity - Week 5

   

Welcome to Express Your Creativity. Here you can share paintings, sketches, art journal pages, poetry, photography, fiber arts like knitting and weaving, favorite recipes, organizational and decorating ideas, and more. The only requirement is that it is something that you have created in some way. I hope you will join me here and please pass it on. Please make sure to list your posts url and not your blogs url. This makes it easier for any late comers to find your post. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, this is how it works. You type in your name in the first box and the url/link to your post, not your blog address about your creative efforts this week. When you return your name will already be populated, you just need to paste in the new posts link.


I have created a blog button for those participating who might want to post this on your blog. You'll find it on the sidebar to your right.




















I made this page this morning in an old book.  I am teaching a class on art journaling and we are using an old book for a journal.  This started out with distress ink and then I collaged a lot of thing on to the page.. The face was black and I added colored pencil to that face to spice it up a bit.




















This is an exercise in the Mandala Magic course I am part of.  Needless to say it is to symbolize me but not be realistic.  It was fun to do.  That's all I have to share today.
