Creative Every Day

My word for 2013 is Focus, and one of the things I want to focus on is journaling, I only discovered it last year and I am hooked. Perhaps because I can combine art with my love for words. This is my first journal page for 2013. I realised these holidays that I love my home, it is my bolt hole or sanctuary. This is quite a revelation for me as I have been a bit of a wanderer. I wonder whether it has something to do with the fact that I like where I am at the moment and I have many blessings to be thankful for. Anyways, I felt inspired to do this watercolour. The lettering was done in acrylic.

As part of my efforts to focus I am going to take part in the Creative Everyday Challenge and this is my first post for it.  Here's looking forward to meeting all the folk taking part.

  1. Nice to meet you Sharon. Also doing CED and hoping that my enthusiasm stays strong through the year. I love journaling as well and have just started doing more. Love your first page of the year! Blessings!

  2. What a beautiful page. I like all the soft muted colours & the scratched texture, it gives it a lovely worn feel.

  3. Your page is beautiful. I love how you are open to discovery along your path of "one word" combined with art. I haven't done much with my one word, but I feel a nudge of inspiration coming on. (Thank you for that!)

    I am visiting from CED and am so grateful I did!

    I hope you'll visit my art - almost free to make - today!

  4. I love all the blends from purple to blue. Very soft colors and so pretty! Visiting from CED!
