Missing my Mojo so I'm Doodling Instead!

 My stitching mojo is on walkabout again so to get the creative juices flowing I decided to give art journalling a go, here's my very first double page spread
I'm no Pablo Picaso but it's fun trying!
My pages incorporate paint, images, water soluble wax crayons, black pens for doodling, stamps, rub-ons and scrapbooking paper. The quote was from this inpirational art journaller .

and I have to show you this photo from when we were in Melbourne recently.
These fabulous gold bees are on the side of the Eureka Tower, they are huge!
Fee and I didn't go upto the skydeck but I hear it has awesome views of the city.
I just love Melbourne's Art Installations!

I hope your mojo returns quickly Jo... the journalling should do the trick.

Love you journalling. It is OK to swap one craft for another. Your sewing mojo is just taking a break.

I love the bees on the Eureka tower, no matter how many times I go I always take a photo. Did you know that they are there for good luck? So is the gold on the windows at the top. Something to do with Chinese traditions and bringing luck to the building. Whatever it is, it's an amazing building...

I love the way you've written "dreams" it looks wonderful!! Maybe I should try and do some like this, but it's so different to what I do, I'm not sure if I could do it as well as you have!
