Week 4 of The Strathmore Workshop - Recycling Journal Pages






Whoopee have now completed Week 4 of the Recycling Journal pages run by Strathmore free online course, tutor is the amazing Pam Carriker. On week 4 we finished it off by highlighting, redefining, words etc and this is my page complete now. Have shown Week 3 again so hopefully you can see the difference............. Have to wait now until March 1st for the next one which is 'Visual Journey', haven't a clue what thats about but will give it a go......


My homework this week from Art Class is a child ballerina in watercolour..............eeeeeek, never done arms and legs before, well not real ones.........and drawing those hands, what a nightmare. So between you and me, think I will go with a misty look so hopefully my tutor will just like the effect rather than my lack of artistic skills....... Well you have to use artistic licence don't you........lol

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday, its freezing cold here so am off to cook the Sunday Roast which will warm us up, then a little sleep afterwards......... Thank you for popping in and having a nosey; will catch up with you all later. Take care, Annette x

Hi Netty! I love the class at the Strathmore workshop. I have not come to the point that I dare share my attempt of this art called journal pages, but love looking at yours. Hugs and take care!

Thought your page was brilliant before but all your additions have made it even better. Good luck with your ART homework. That would give me nightmares. I am just having morning coffee and you are already cooking dinner. Isn't time mysterious.

Elaine aka Quixotic said...

Love your journal page!

I keep meaning to take a creative leap and start the art journal I'm always thinking about...

Shelley said...

Hands are the hardest thing to draw. This page is lovely!

Faye said...

Netty, you are so brave, taking these online courses. I feel that I would probably fail to understand what was required. I think you will probably be inventive about the arms and legs of the ballerina.
Your journal pages here are delightful and very pretty.

WrightStuff said...

I always love a bit of drawing on a face - pretty pictures - and you've done this marvelously well.

Gerrie Johnnic said...
