I might not be posting.... but I am still creating and my "creative zone" is messier than ever :-).
My time is limited nowadays so now I have to choose between blogging or creating..... so I choose creating. I sometimes only have 10 minutes a day, just enough to glue down the photo and the paper that I arranged on the cardstock the day before. This way it takes like a week or so to finish a layout or a page from my art journal.
So now I have to find myself some time to make pictures of my recent projects and show them to the world... see ya later!

For the first page *Begin* I used a photo that I made from my bedroom window and made the background with watersoluble crayons and Golden mica flakes. The prompt begin inspired me to the ask myself the following question: if that pot of gold can be found at the end of the rainbow....then on which side do you begin searching?
The second prompt *truth* inspired me ask myself some questions about "the truth" and how this concept can mean something different to everyone. I also wonder if it is really appreciated if you tell someone the truth. I personally think that truth is an overrated concept and that in most cases the best thing you can do is keep the truth a secret. Of course this doesn't mean you have to lie all the time.....you are just not telling the truth...to protect friendships..family ties...your job...etcetera etcetera...
The transparent nude stands of course...for the naked truth... and I guess you can figure out the rest of the imagery on the page.
For the last page the prompt was *life*. Quite a difficult concept but while I was going through my stamps I saw the one with the boots and the lyrics from Nancy Sinatra popped into my head immediately :-). And I thought... isn't that what life is all about? You just keep going...whatever happens. Sometimes you'll "walk" a little faster than other times..but in the end you'll keep on walking...
