More pages...

Catching up posting my pages! This first one was for Monica's moon prompt at Bohemian Shadows. I've been thinking a lot lately about the balance between being myself, and having to do what I do for my job. Recently the two have collided, and I've been involved in the harsher side of the work I do which has left me feeling pretty bad! I wanted to tell myself that what has to be done has to be done, and you can't always please everybody when you have to do the right thing.

This second page is for this month's Art Journal Friday prompt ('time') at The Scrappy Tree. As I said yesterday, I've been having some problems finding enough time to get things done, or at least to get them done well - it was great to just scribble down some of the frustration I've been feeling and then gesso over the top! Very liberating :) As I keep telling myself, you can only do as much as you can do.
This last page is just for fun! I am totally head over heels in love with the Avatar movie at the moment, and as I just got the soundtrack it's been going round in my head a lot! I want to practise drawing some faces in my pages, so it seemed to make sense to have a go at a Na'vi! :) I liked the eyes, but the rest of the face - ugh! Going to keep practising! lol
Thanks for looking :) if you like using flowers in your work and you want to win a BUNCH of them, don't forget to enter the Spring Blooms competition at The Scrappy Tree, not much time left! You need to upload your pic by the end of today :)
