Imagination Journal Page *RR Spoiler* IA


This week's Inspiration Avenue challenge is Art Journaling which fits in perfectly with the fact that I've just finished my June pages for the Round Robin journal swap I'm taking part in. These are my pages in Maggie's journal who incidentally is the IA member hosting this week's challenge. Perfect timing!

Below is the tag created for Maggie which has my details on the back.


This journal swap is helping motivate, focus and inspire me at a time that seems busy and disorganised. Thank you Lisa! My production rate is very low at the moment and other than this swap, making cards & a small bit of writing I've not had as much creative time as I'd like. But this is in part due to the fact we've been very busy with (mostly) pleasant activities/celebrations/events. I'm not complaining because I've been well enough to enjoy them. The novelty of driving again has also tempted me out and away from my art supplies and computer. However, I carry a notebook, camera and am collecting inspiration where ever I go. It will surely all come in useful. I'm only sad that I seem to be a little out of touch with you lovely people in Blogland but I shall try and remedy this asap.

  • What keeps you away from your creative work? Do you view it as a distraction or an opportunity to gather inspiration?
Wishing you all a happy & creative weekend :-)

Community, Diamond Jubilee and Creative Connections

I finished these journal pages last week but life has been so happily busy I haven't had chance to blog about it. These were pages created in Lisa (priti.lisa) journal for our round robin swap. I could hardly bare to give up the gorgeous journal she'd created, adorned with her lovely painting and Angie's stunning artwork. Now I knew I couldn't compete with these ladies' talents so I simply aimed to create something from my heart with my own style. I hope Lisa likes it. The journal is now back on its travels.

 The quotes are my own and are inspired by the people in my life who remind me how much the people we share our lives with (however briefly) affect our lives, supporting us, helping us grow and learn .

 From close friends to a wider community, cyber contacts and neighbours - each and every person touches a piece of our life.
Below is the tag that Lisa asked us to create in addition to our pages:

This last few weeks we've had lots of community celebrations to mark the Olympic torch and this week the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It was wonderful to have days in our ordinarily quiet village where everyone came out of the bubbles of their individual lives and gathered to make historic memories together. We've also a few friends turning forty this year and have already been part of some memorable celebrations that have affirmed friendships and reminded me of how blessed we are to be surrounded by wonderful people.

On the internet I've made creative connections with many inspiring kind people through blogging, art challenges and swaps. I've been supported and inspired by people around the world. At times when I've been limited by health these online communities have helped me feel part of the world and their creativity has lifted my spirits.


  • How have other people, community events or/and creative connections enriched your lives and influenced your creative work? 
Wishing you all a happy and creative week!
