sleight of heart-in-hand


one thing is for sure,
no matter how hard you try to keep a date with your favorite journal,
life will conjure up reasons not to…..
until you've completely lost your creative focus.





and just when you think you're gonna have to resort to seeking out a magic wand 
and shouting "abracadabra" at the top of your lungs to find it again, 
you notice this week's DLP challenge…..





and you tell life that everything is gonna have to wait...
because you're taking a nose dive into 
the middle of your favorite journal for some well-deserved, 
and long-awaited creative time!  


here's to putting life on hold, 
and pulling a rabbit out of your creative hat. 
not because of any hocus-pocus……
but thanks to good ol' inspiration and sleight of heart-in-hand!  
:))


{supplies for this week's DLP "focus" challenge:
wings journal, derwent inktense pencils, micron pens, 6B graphite pencil}

Love your page Lori. It frees me up when I see your work because it shows me that I don't have to follow everyone else with lots of layers of paint, stamps, lettering, ephemera, etc., etc. all the time for art journaling. So thank you for sharing your wonderful art work and your up beat attitude. It sure gives me a boost......Linda E.

Lori - I love this page as it speaks to such truth that every artist faces when focus and time refuse to align. Hope you find yours soon!

Oh my dear Lori I am so happy I have found your blog once again. My computer has been petulant and misbehaving like a two year old toddler throwing tantrums! You have no idea how I yearned for your artful inspirations! I could also use some Hocus-Pocus Focus!!! Creative Focus Bliss...
