Tuesday Tease....True Story

Short But Sweet

True Story Tuesday

I went on a brief sea-side holiday with my family.
I normally pack everything EXCEPT the kitchen sink,
with grand ideas of doing SO much more.
I inevitably come home from holidays
feeling like I've somehow failed myself
for not achieving more in my 'break'!!!
So this break, I gave it up...I let go, I just let inspiration come to me.
I welcomed in with open arms

I have been having withdrawals NOT doing any art that was for me...just me NOT a bunch of other peoples children,
instead of nurturing the child within...
my own inner child.
I even played with my, my camera and my wireless remote :0)

So this time all I took were two pad, one black & one white
A white chinagraph pencil.
I black and white paint pen
and a fineline black marker!
Water paints in a tin and a few paint brushes.

The water paints and I didn't really 'gel' on this break
The Chinagraph pen and I had fun :0)

It was nice having inspiration at my doorstep :0)

Can you spot the inspiration for the
second picture in amongst
this flotsam and jetsam??

I went away on a short break
and I actually did a little bit of art.

Pop on over to
and see what tales others
have to tell Rachel and Mr Daddy

Thanks For dropping by


  1. Wow you are one talented lady! I am glad to hear that you truly 'got away'. I'm a planner and inevitably I always over plan my vacations. Going with the flow is sometimes harder then it sounds, but we leave in a month for a trip and I am going to try really hard to take your lead! ;)

  2. What great art!! I see the inspiration as the shell on the hat, am I right? Kudos to you for getting away and doing what you love.

  3. I love seeing your art. Please keep showing us. Hope you are well.

  4. Jewelz where is you?
    I miss you and I hope you are okay, sending you lots of love right now okay.

    All the love in the universe from me to you.

  5. I just got a preview of your prezzie.........all I can say is OMG!!!!!

  6. That's some real talent, Jewelz! Kudos to you for putting yourself in a situation where other "stuff" couldn't get in the way... look what came out of it! That shell awesomely rocks; how exactly do you use a Chinagraph pen? I've never even heard of it before. Thanks for sharing your talent!
