The Beginning....

OK. It is time to take the plunge....

I have been planning to start this Blog for some time now. To quote a well-worn slogan: "Just do it"!

A bit about myself:
I was very creative as a child. I really enjoyed drawing and collage. As I came into my teenage years, arty play had to take a backseat to the 'more important' & more productive studying. I do not recall any art classes in school so they were obviously not very memorable. After 25 + years of focusing on study, work, being a wife and mother, my creativity has now resurfaced (with a vengeance).

The last 5 years has been a journey of discovery for me. My creative expression has progressed from card-making to altered art and mixed media. I voraciously explored the internet and learned scrap-booking techniques which I used in card-making. I knew that pure scrap-booking wasn't for me. I always gravitated towards mixed media type art. I then stumbled upon the one and only, Suzi Blu and discovered the world of Art Journalling.

Interesting how things have come full circle. I am now doing what I was attracted to as a child. Faces and busy & dimensional collages. Hmmm....funny how some of us take a while to listen to one's soul.

I am not exactly sure what my blog will be like but I am prepared to just let go & share my Art and my thoughts and see what develops. That is a lesson I have learnt from art journaling.

Until next time.
Lena :)
