It's been too long!

Hi everyone!

I cannot believe it's been over a week since I've posted!  It feel terrible!  I went back to work for the first time in a month this past Monday.  Never did I imagine that my body would feel so exhausted.  By the end of Tuesday I felt like I had run a marathon.  I'm thinking a month on the couch is definitely not good for the body.  :)  It's a long weekend here in Canada (Happy Canada Day!) as well as the US (Happy Fourth of July!) so I will be relaxing for the most part.

Here are a few completed pages!

Messy

Lots of yummy layer going on here!  I titled it "Messy", as it was what was going on in my mind at the time.  Since this picture I've added a transparency to the right side.  A page is never really complete is it?  ;)

Let GO

I enjoyed playing around with painting flowers here.  I think I need to add some black around the edges of the title, but I really like how it turned out.  My favourite part is that teeny tiny picture on the top right.  :)

Here is the completed page from my first LIVE Ustream which you can watch every Wednesday night at 9:30pm Eastern here:  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/journalartista  I've recorded my two shows so far, so you can watch anytime.  I truly appreciate all of you that has supported me so far, it has been a GREAT time!

Ustream Love

Mind the bottom right where there was sunlight.  We used multiple layers of acrylics, some Molding Paste and a lot of fun.

In other news, I drew the winner of my blog giveaway on YouTube here.  I'm still blown away at who won.  :)  I have another small giveaway this week from my favourite stencil company!  Keep watching for that.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Much LOVE

Keep up the great work. You are a true Art Journaler and I love to watch your progress. You are my hero. And since we are Sister's in Safety, even more connected. I still would like to see you to do a tutorial on how you make a YT video and get it published. I simply can't do it and you make it look so easy. Look at me stretching this out like a crazy person. Can't wait til Wednesday evening again. Hugs!

Love your pages Paula and so glad you are back to blogging. It would be a bit of a jolt to the system to go back to work after so long. Hope you stay well rested.

We have missed you in blogger land, but I've been enjoying watching your vid's and especially the recordings of your live demonstrations. Enjoying getting to know you better :-)
Going back to work had to have been challenging, no wonder you're worn out.
Love the pages Paula. That first one I find very compelling, the colours and textures, beautiful.

Hey Paula, I've been playing with layers after watching your videos on u tube. You are so fun and inspiring. Thanks so much!

Ophelia said...

Love, love, love what you are doing!!! Glag you shared! I always love seeing your work!

It is amazing how our bodies get used to less activity, and how tiring it is to get back to normal after an injury. Take it slow if you can.

I love watching your videos, and listening to your lovely voice!!!!

Beautiful journal pages Paula. I've only just stumbled upon the concept of art journaling. I've been doing it for years without knowing that it even had a name. It's a real joy looking at the work of other art journaling creatives. Thanks for sharing. I'm inspired!

Jeanne Nelson said...

Hi, Paula. Just found you while hopping around blogland, and LOVE your journaling! Looking forward to viewing some of your videos when time allows. Hope you can get some rest this weekend. So great to "meet" you! Wishing you a restful, but creative weekend, ;)

Now I know how I missed that you were doing a UStream video show...I haven't read blogs in a couple of weeks (I am behind on everything!) so I just hadn't read about it. Pfft! I'm such a slacker. LOL
But I know now...YAY!!!
Love the pages...all are gorgeous and the kind of pages that capture my attention. Niceee!
Peace & Love,
~Barb~

Hi Paula, I believe we "met" in Connie's Art Journal LOVE letters in February. I've been sort of "Stuck" with art journalling since then. I don't know why. But I think I'm going to try out a brand new journal and start watching you on Ustream too. I love your work! =)

Gloria said...

Hi Paula. I'm a newbie here and just added you to my reading list. I come via Connie's blog and viewed a couple of your tutuorials. Awesome. Nice to meet you and I will be back.

Mary said...

Hey Paula, it's been a while since you have posted, is everything okay??

Nancy said...

Hi Paula,

I'm a fan and follower of yours, and I have noticed you haven't been posting or making those wonderful techniques youtubes. I see you have been doing alot of streaming lately. I hope you will go back to making some videos. I am on a satellite system and have limits on my usage--so I can't do not even one streaming video a month. I am sure I'm not alone--I have really enjoyed your videos, and I miss them! Please make more!!

Thank you,
Nancy
