Splash of Colour



I love the studio and boutique shop, Pickleberry Papercrafts, where I'm taking my art journal workshop.  It's an inspiring and creative space.  Surrounded by beautiful art supplies, paper crafting goodies in an array of colours and textures.  So yummy!  I come away wanting more.  Motivated and inspired.

These colours are out of my comfort zone.  I guess sometimes you just need colour in your life.  Real colour.  Positive emotional colour.  Uplifting.  So bright and bold.  And I'm not really sure why I chose them to work with for my art journal.  I was drawn to them and loved working with them.  I usually choose muted tones.  These bright and bold colours are happy.  I need happy at the moment.  It somehow balances out the sadness that's in my life.  I don't know how my art journal will unfold.  I don't have a theme in mind.  I want it to be organic.  Already though, I'm excited about the choices I've made and how its evolving.

Happy.  Yes.  Happy.  Bright and beautiful.

Just got my Pickleberry newsletter and saw your name so had to check out what's happening with you!
It's great you're enjoying your class so much, and I hope it's helping you to cope with the sad news about your dad.
Will keep an eye on your doings on the new site!! Good luck with everything!
