Can you spot it? Nobody I've shown the page to so far has.....


So I'm still art journalling every day.....I don't think I've ever had any kind of resolution that lasted this far into January! :) 

This page is in response to the first set of prompts on the A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal blog....  the requirement to include a foot photo on the page gave me the opportunity to illustrate being 'different' in a 'different' kind of way....love it!

I tried out my new calligraphy fountain pen for the first time on the bottom bit of journalling, not sure if I like it or not, but then everyone hates their own handwriting don't they?

The photo above doesn't show the sparklyness of this one, as the background is 99% glimmer mists, gotta love glimmer mists, especially now that I've refreshed them with a pinch of perfect pearls to add a bit of extra shimmer.  This pic gives you a better idea:

Oh my goodness... you have six toes!!! Well, that's worth journaling about! I think everyone is special in his/her own way, but you have something VERY special! Thanks for joining the "A Year in the Life of an Art Journal" - I do hope you keep playing with your art journal ánd with our prompts!

@Marit, sorry to disappoint, but that's not actually my foot!

love the green! i know, its a bummer that photos dont communicate the glimmer and texture well. But at least you have this to have and to hold forever!

how many little piggies went to market lol great image to go with the wording...a page I'd like to see in real life, to get the full effect of the work gone into the background.
