May is over already, can you believe it? Spring exploded after a very long winter and now everything is lush green. Next up: summer days. How will we spend our summer days? I could revisit last years Summer Manifesto, a lot of my ideas never became excursions. Maybe this summer they will. At least there […]

My Desk, No Gloss

My Desk, No Gloss

I know lots of people who function brilliantly within a chaotic studio. I’m just not one of them. I need spareness but… I’m no neatnik (!) so order doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s an ongoing effort. A big effort. But the feeling of spaciousness it opens up inside is narcotic bliss. Mary Ann Moss […]

365 Collages | Week 21

One of this weeks collages is called When in need – anything goes. It means that any bit of paper you have can become a collage. That a collage can come together in a gazillion ways. If you have three scraps of paper that you like, you can probably combine them into something that “works”, […]

The last pages of Vol 2

The last pages of Smart Journal volume 2 are as full of summer and brightness as the previous pages of this journal. It’s about time I start with a new summer journal, though I still have a few pages left in my hand bound journal. There’s still some blank pages for painting, drawing and sketching […]

Art Journal Idea: Create a Sub Page

Art Journal Idea: Create a Sub Page

A sub page is a extra page attached in some way to fold out of your journal and extend it even further. I haven’t done this much before, but in the square smart journal (with the rather small pages) it was a natural progression. On the spread above the right page has a sub page, […]

Cut & Paste with Kids

Cut & Paste with Kids

Everyone loves cut and paste – if they get the chance to try it out. You get to choose images from a magazine, images that you really like. You get to use a scissor. You get to glue them together in a nice composition – and you get to keep them for ever. A friend […]
