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!

Art Journal 2008- Begin*Truth*Life

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 are just not telling the protect 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...
