Jump for Joy!

Jump for Joy

Hello friends

Sorry I missed posting on Sunday because I was sick – same thing as happened to me when I was on the Art Retreat, blinding headache and sickness only this time much worse and I spent two whole days in bed!  But I am much better now and went back to work today, so it’s time to catch up 🙂

This is the second page that I started in Teesha Moore’s workshop and I finished it yesterday.  I really do like this way of journaling, it’s so different to my usual style – it’s bold, sassy and ‘in your face’.  I like doodling all over my pages, but I think I need to try some different styles, I seem to be stuck on the same few motifs at the moment 😉

I am going to link this page to Challenge 2 of Fall Fearless & Fly over at Artists in Blogland.

This time the prompts are:

Headline prompt:  Taking a Chance, Color prompt: What color do you like least? Use it! Quote prompt: Don’t refuse to go on the occasional Wild Goose chase – that’s what wild geese are for. Anonymous

Click on the link Fall Fearless & Fly for more information and the rules.

My page is all about taking chances and doing something different, I’ve used combinations of colours I wouldn’t normally use and I picked my quote because it seemed to fit with the image on the page and also it made me laugh because I misread it at first as “To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily, not to dare is to lose ones elf”   Well you wouldn’t want to lose your Elf now would you?  You’d be lost without it!

Take care everyone and I’ll see you soon

Big love

AJ 🙂

  1. FAB-U-LOUS! Sorry for raising my voice since you are getting over a massive headache, but I am in love with this! The chances you took and the fun just jumps off the screen at me! This is just what Fall Fearless and Fly is all about for me! Glad you are on the mend!

  2. Heaven help us should we lose our elf!!! LOL! I love your bold art with the white pen accents and the huge eyes and gorgeous colors. I love Teesha Moore’s stuff and have one of her books, but I just can’t seem to do it authentically myself.

  3. This is Brave, Bold and oh so Beautiful! Love how you thought it was “elf” instead of “self!” And you’re right — one should never lose one’s elf! Glad you’re feeling better, and thanks for joining FF&F!

  4. Your page caught my eye on Fall, Fearless, and Fly and it is awesome! I really like how you filled the whole page with color, texture, and doodling. Teesha is a great artist and seems to be a great teacher too!
