life has been busy yes but really i just feel slack that i havent shared anything in forever, but really i was at a loss for what to share. Its no secret i stopped scrapbooking, as many i know have. And then we moved, so i faced no garden, shared family housing of which i thank my parents for while we sorted ourselves out and then of course the return to full time work. eek about sums up the second hard of 2011. And then i added to it all by starting my fine arts degree! like i have the time, rolls eyes...lucky i spend part of everyday creating anyway, and so i dont see scrapbooking returning to this fair blog anytime soon, ive lost the passion i once had and its been replaced with ART!! not really a stretch after the uni statement!
So i thought i would share my journey into this fine art degree, a way for me to watch my own progress, esp this year after i start studio units in painting and sculpture. Ive started and finished two units and did really well, both general art based units. A high distinction and a distinction, i was chuffed after 13 yrs of not studying. this term im slogging my way through my last two general ed units, and critical thinking and popular culture are both kicking me in the tush! I know im working on a credit in one, but the other god only knows! but i will be pleased to see the back of them in a few more weeks. sometime in march its back to arts units in arts departments thank god for that!
this was my final art and creativity work, its a stop motion animation. You dont even want to know how long i spent on the stupid thing, how many times a drew that damn bird, took photos etc, insane!
I shared some of my art journal after i started it last yr and this we moved and i disappeared, i did keep the journalling up and that journal was eventually filled with lots of uni stuff and whatever else was happening at the time. This week i shouted myself a 2012 journal or two one that i will keep personal and one that will be filled with uni type stuff. i was naughty and sprung for one filled with really nice paper, thankgod for sales right :) I also sprung for the blue bazaar mixed media kit, which seems to be my go to shop for art journaling stuff. Ive been lead and inspired to some great stuff from their site and journaling friday challenges.
Heres my first 2012 page, and i will share what i get up to with my kit when it starts in feb.
We moved as i mentioned, and in december finally decided to be adults again and leave my parents house, rolls eyes. such is life but hey. anyway we bought of the south side of brisbane, a very very large ridiculous house that I LOVE! lol im still sorting out and painting said ridiculous house, but will share pics shortly.
And to finish off this large post, heres some of the art work ive done in the last few months, some of it in the last few days :) gotta love the holidays even if they are rapidly finishing! cry!!
until next time...:)
