Don't Wait For the Perfect Moment - Art Journal Every Day

Sometimes (well this time for the first time of many I hope) a journal page just comes together like magic.

I look at this and can hardly believe I created it. It was done for the Jane Davenport course I'm doing. I could have gone further with it but it felt right to stop here.

Coloured pencil with watercolour & artists cellar stencils.

How do you know when to stop with your pages?

  1. I just stop when it feels finished :) This is lovely - the art and the idea.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment. I am really enjoying Jane's course, it's making me draw every day in a way that I find really inspiring. And there are lots of pretty things coming out of my paints/pens/pencils which is an added bonus!

  5. I like this page, it's very bright and refreshing. I also like the quote, which is certainly something I strive for. My journal page is done when I've had enough of it! :-)

  6. Your ladies are amazing. I love the beach girl here- makes me just want to go sit on the beach and soak up some sun. Thanks for leaving the comment on my post. I will check back to see what other ladies you will be showing us.

    1. Ladies and what else? :-) Who knows! Thank you for your lovely comments, I live 5 mins from the beach myself and spent yesterday afternoon soaking up some sun too.

  7. Wow! I want to take one of Jane's classes so bad and seeing this awesome page just makes me want to more.

    When to finish? About four steps before I usually stop. LOL. I really struggle with that too.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice things you said about my fairy :-)

    Warmly,
    Nicole
