I am continuing my month of faces for June's "Art Journal Every Day"
Again I am using a page of grids done for Strathmore Workshop 2 as they give me an ideal "canvas" for this project.
Some time ago I worked through Sarah Ban Breathnach's "Simple Abundance" - this is a wonderful book which encourages you to review your life and value the everyday.
This is not an art journal, it is a kind of scrapbook of anything and everything that interests me, I clip all sorts of bits and pieces and every so often I put all these clippings into a scrapbook, just Pritt-sticking them in. However, they have become a wonderful resource of ideas, images, poems and sayings, pretty greetings cards, tickets and theatre reviews.
So - when I was scratching my head for face number 1 today I had a flick through my scrapbooks - see above - and found a wonderful image of the Madonna and Child by Jean Fouquet and there was the inspiration!
