Anyway, I did finally stir myself to do this journal page. My daughter has had to do some portrait work for her art homework, so we had been researching some different drawing styles, and I fanned a tiny flicker of motivation into this page. I debated colouring the face, but decided that the grey pencil kind of summed up my mood at the moment and that the colourful hair could be all the ideas that are there, in my head, but I just haven't found the oomph to let them out yet.
In the mean time, I am writing lists. Loads of them. Lists of all the things that I am going to do, when I do find my oomph again. As we all know, you can't beat a good list - it's the grown up version of a revision timetable!

The background is a mixture of hand carved rubber and foam stamps, with a little collage, washi tape and doodling thrown in, the sentiment I typed out on my vintage typewriter. At the moment I am using almost exclusively the Amsterdam acrylic paints, I love their vibrant, unctuous gorgeousness!
