I’m still here…

Hi all, things have been a bit quiet here of late, but I am still here! :)
I basically had to ban myself from painting during most of February so that I could work on other projects.
Painting is so addictive, once I’ve set up all my gorgeous colours and surrounded myself with tubes, pots, crayons, pencils etc etc I seem to go into a trance and lose track of time. I felt I was neglecting my paper projects, the house, the garden! etc etc so I imposed a ban! :P
I have allowed myself a little playing in my art journal but my main focus has been on making a handmade book.
Here is a sneak peek at the cover

I want to use this book as an album for some of my photography and drawings, mainly focussing on architectural styles and design features.
I tend to snap these on my iphone and upload them to Instagram, but a lovely person gifted me a zoom lens for my DSLR and last Sunday I took a trip to Greenwich in South London to test it on my fave type of photography.
Here are a few snaps

I hope to be back soon with photos of my finished book and February’s calendar art journal page :)
