Art, Heart and Self Healing - Part 1




Hi,

Now this is a whopper............A4 size (twice) of Part 1 of Art, Heart and Self Healing which is a free journal course, which is totally amazing and am loving every minute of it. Although I must admit to be totally freaked when I saw those huge blank pages and on second thoughts I should have used something a lot smaller. Now I know its not perfect but neither am I. Why Green hair you say, well when I was a lot younger I dyed my hair for the first time and yes it went Green.......lol The theory of Part 1 is that you get rid of all your negative thoughts and think positive (left side of the page). After seeing this picture it looks quite dark against the black background of my blog, maybe better if you enlarge it.........only don't look too hard......lol


If you are considering starting a journal I cannot recommend this course enough (see side bar for info) I had started a private art journal but this course has already taught me so much that I can incorporate the techniques I've learn't into that, so am one very happy lady.


Thank you for popping in and for your terrific support which I value greatly and thank you to all you terrific bloggers who continue to inspire me.


Am going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp & Show Whatever Makes you Happy, because this really has made me very happy.


Better get dressed as still in PJs and am due out in 30mins.......oops. Take care, Annette x

Netty said...

Thank you for all your smashing comments. I forgot to say that all those swirls represent the chaotic ideas that go around in my head..........if that makes sense....ooh so deep and meaningful......nice colours though..lol

Netty, I love the start to your journal. The green hair story is so funny. I think you are the second person who I know has started this class. It is not often you get something so good for free.
I am looking forward to seeing the rest.... your drawing is amazing, by the way.
Have a great week

Beautiful journal page Netty, love the green hair i think its pretty and love your art. I also have had a disaster with hair colour ... put it this way .. if we had stood together at the same time, all we would have needed was a red head and we could have been a set of traffic lights lol.

Nancy said...

Thank you for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge.

MarleneMAZ said...

Ooh this is gorgeous, love what you did. I must go check out this class if you think it is good.

Annika said...

I think I should sign up for painting courses or something...although they definitely won't give me your talent. So probably a waste of time. I'll just plod along with my Copics and pencils and inks and leave the art to you, so I can come here and admire and be humbled again.
Hugs
Annika
