Woman unleashed



During the mid winter break I've enjoyed parts of the Woman Unleashed Online Retreat, especially the beautiful Tamara Laporte's fabulous journal tutorials. I used a picture from a magazine and made it to something completely different. This journal spread is about authenticity and following your core values even when they are challenged.

The light is very dull today so it was a challenge to take a photo too :)

The real colours are more like this!



Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! I'm having a getting things done weekend; cleaning, sorting, filling the stocks and dusting off. The best part of it it that I reward myself to some new stash, yeah, I know, I work that way! Otherwise I would be spending the entire weekend cuddled up in the sofa with a cuppa reading  a book or two:)

Love and hugs
Maarit

  27. Oh my, you are so talented at drawing & sketching. I would think faces are not real easy to capture, and liked the opposite page with the subtle scene too. This is very brave of you to venture into this art experience, love the colors and it's just impressive that you can do this!!! Good luck in the challenges...TFS & Hugs
