I hope you all have a wonderful time ....

Some in-progress pictures:

Browns and pinks for the face, pink and red for the lips,
in the hair I used purples, blue and white...
Made clouds with a sponge and white gouage,

Art Journal page: Acceptatie

I found the text about accepting in a magazine.
This page has black gesso as base, the face and hair are painted with oilpaint. I like to experiment in this Art-Journal ;).

Needle felting/Naaldvilten 1ste werkjes

This is a new craft that I wanted to I picked up some wool and needles in the art store.
I first made a little bird, and a cow....
I know... I need to practice...
But it's a lot of fun creating cute animals from wool.

I found some great tutorials and demo's on the net, just listing a few of them:
Amazing what people can create, I love the "dolls".

I'm back with some new pages in my journal

Ok, this was a long time without posting...
This is what happened :
My son (age 11) has autism, Tourette and ADHD, he had a lot of problems in school lately. So I started home-schooling him today! I had to (temporally) stop my job to do this.
The next pages are a little about my feelings about this...

I used a lot of Neocolor II on these pages. 
The details are markers.
