When Loose Pages come Together

When Loose Pages come Together

I love working in a handbound or altered book for Art Journaling, it’s awesome for so many reasons. But also, I’ve found working on loose pages gives me something else. I even named it A Favorite Method of Art Journaling a while back. And it can be, even though I like to bind them together […]

Cat sitting is a great Photo Opp

Cat sitting is a great Photo Opp

I’ve been cat sitting again, for another boy cat. Though this one is totally adorable and fun. And orange. And adorable, did I say that? He likes to sleep on the top shelf of my bookcase, just under the roof. He likes to nudge me with his head – and he can jump really really […]

Journal it! 19 Perspectives in Creative Journaling

Book review time today again. Yay! I’ve been reading and enjoying Jenny Doh’s book Journal It! and thought you might like it too!

Spring Inspired ATC

I haven’t created any Artist Trading Cards lately, except this one, inspired by my huge longing for spring (read less darkness and snow): I want less ice and more flowers in my life. Pronto! Related PostsSnow covered Landscape Instafall Dear Photo Diary | Pumpkin Season

Why you should show some Link Love

Why you should show some Link Love

If you read this blog you know I love something that’s called Link Love in the blog world. It’s when you as a blogger share links to someone or something other than your own content. Yes, you lead your readers away from your own stuff and into the arms of others, but you do it […]

Evidence Pages: More Washi Tape

Evidence Pages: More Washi Tape

Oh-la-la! Beautiful rolls of decorative masking tape (called washi tape) and ordinary plastic tape but with colour or pattern (called deco tape). Yes. I’ve splurged on several rolls of tape, as previously mentioned. I really like this stuff because it’s fun to use, it lasts a long time, it’s easy to handle – and has […]

365 Collages | Week 13

Illustration of Love This collage is oh so very pink and romantic, don’t you think? I’m also continuing experimenting with black and white collage. Not typography this time, but instead I am combining painted b/w papers, b/w photographs from vintage books and some hot magenta pink. The dotted paper in several of these are painted […]

Video | Artsy Watercolour Experiments

I’ve uploaded a video where you can watch me paint in my Art Journal. I’m using a lot of water and one of my favorite mediums – watercolours! It’s my hope that it will inspire you to doodle with a paint brush (here I’m using a Tank Koi Water Color Brush), to play and empty […]
