Art Journaling At Work

I don't know about the company that you work for, but the one that I work for is pretty amazing! When there is nothing for me to do, when all my work is done... they let me do my art work! Isn't that just the most fabulous thing! As long as I'm there to answer the phone. So most days I am finished my work by 10am and I work until 3PM Monday-Thursday. I can't bring out my paints and set up my easle at work but I can get some art journaling in.

The above page is the result of one slow day at work. There was an old magazine that I usually just recycle at work but I decided to cut out the border for this page, paste them on and color them with my Copics. The mask is a piece of work that I have worked on a little bit at a time on my "Desk Calendar" ~ I doodle when it is slow and when the month is over I cut out my doodles and past them in my sketch book!

The mask got me thinking about people and how so many where masks, pretending to be something they are not. These thoughts came into my head because of my girlfriends experience with on-line dating. She noticed that there were so many men on the site that were simply "players" like they are collectors of women! GROASE! These men REALLY have no clue as to what real life is all about! Needless to say my girlfriend is no longer on the site and she only lasted one week until she gladly gave up!

I feel so very blessed in my life ~ I have an amazing hubby who is God fearing, loving, caring and kind. He is the man you see, not hiding anything about him. He has been like this since I met him - however we have both grown up since then too! LOL!

And while I was searching around online for inspiration I came across Milliande and her amazing zentangles. These two pictures are from one of her pattern pages.

Well I wish you a most amazing weekend. Happy creating everyone.
Hugs and blessings!

wow, you DO have the best job! How wonderful that you can journal at work!! The page turned out great and I love how the border looks. Do you really like those Copic markers? Are they really better than all the other markers out there? I've got the Faber Castell ones and I like those just fine. I am wondering if I should ask for some Copic markers for Xmas! :)
Anyway, love the journaling and thanks for sharing!

Hello, Dear Kelly! I just love this mask spread - and how very fortunate you are to be allowed your creativity on your job! I want you to know that I read EVERY comment on my blog even though I don't always find the time to acknowledge each one. When I see your name it always puts a smile on my face and encouragement in my heart to continue what I do and to know that my tiny bytes of info are heard and appreciated by others. As always, much love. And, oh BTW --the paper dolls are precious! Your nieces will love them :o)
