Through the lens...

Sometimes we all need to just take the time to stand and stare...

Visual Journal (2)

Here are my doodlings from my second page spread.
I am aiming to complete a page spread each week to challenge myself to keep creating and experimenting in my sketchbook regularly. Doodle out all those tiny details and 'things' from inside my head onto the pages and see what evolves.

Inspiration: hyacinth

As much as I think we could still do with a serious cold spell to get rid of all the nasty bugs and germs that still seem to be ailing people(!), I do love the new growth that starts to appear with spring and fresh greens on the horizon. Be inspired by new beginnings and fresh starts!

scented loveliness
brightening up my room
I know that the scent of hyacinths isn't to everyone's taste but these ones in particular are so lovely and fresh, quite a light scent even for hyacinths. They are brightening up the spare room where I create. Thanks to my Mum for these lovelies x

New visual journal

Remember a while back I said I had purchased a new handmade sketchbook to journal in? Well I decided to save it for this new year and have now started to play in my new book. Here's some of my doodlings from my first page spread.

My journal is to be a place to doodle, experiment and play. If something doesn't work then it doesn't matter and it's good to make mistakes to learn from them and they can often be better than what you first set out to do. What are you doing new for you?
