I’m feeling the need for a bit of a change soon – my scrapping style feels a bit stale and I feel the need to get a bit more tactile and textured in my work. Not so much lumpy bumpy – more like layers but then refining the whole thing again and bringing it back to a traditional format LO. I know that doesn’t sound like it makes sense yet, but it will.
I have been reading the Diary of Judy Cassab (famous Australian Painter) and her work and personal thoughts have completely inspired me.
This is her portrait of Robert Juniper (also an Aussie artist). I don’t know if you can see it but the way she paints texture is something close to what I am trying to achieve in a scrapbook LO. Layers of papers and meaning. Light and shadow. Balance and Harmony.
I think I have turned to a more “arty” approach through stress. I usually turn to creativity when I am feeling a bit “put upon” and this week has been no exception. Back to school and the usual chaos that it entails. I feel a bit like the world is a giant merry go round and every so often we deserve the chance to step off it for a bit. That’s what school holidays are around here! A chance to recoup.
So, time for a quick share before I go diving head first into the studio for some creative time.
Have a wonderful day, everyone,
