Distracted and Forgetful

Happy Belated Valentine's Day! I hope everyone had a pleasant day. 

February has been an interesting month. I sprained my wrist, but didn't want to slow down too much so I practiced using my left hand. I'm not so good at it, but I did improve. Practice makes perfect...well, not perfect. In my case practice made less unsightly.

I used my time to lay down some backgrounds in my art journal. Something a non-dominant hand can definitely handle. 

Meanwhile, Life Book 2016 has captivated me....the only problem is that I'm still on the warm up exercise from week one. I don't really care. I am enjoying it at my pace. 

Here I wrote and used the paper like they did in the past by writing crosswise as well. Great for the background. 

I had some fun taking the photo into my Diana App and juxtaposing it with other art I've done. I love this affect. 

And you can see various stages of color and texture below.
