Painted circles ad infinitum

Painted circles ad infinitum

I have painted circles, because I love circles. Love them! Well, I do love polka dots, spheres, and most any roundish pattern I find (or make), as you might know. And painted circles can be done in a couple of thousand different ways. There is no end to a circle, and I don’t imagine there […]

Mixed Media Collage

Mixed Media Collage

Collage time! Circles again, inside my brain, on the cardigan I’m wearing – and then from my hands onto the paper. Cut out, drawn, or sewn – they appear in all colors and forms on my polka dot desk. Mostly circles are present when I paint or doodle, but now also in my collage work […]

Creativity in Snapshots | Circles

Creativity in Snapshots | Circles

Drew a quick pencil flower, not in my Sketchbook or idea book or on a piece of white paper, but in my to-do-list notebook (#GTD) of course! Where else? Feeling more inspired now. Because I take a gazillion awesome photos of colours, inspiration, creativity, beauty & life I am publishing a series of posts called […]

Art journal peek: home of random things

Art journal peek: home of random things

Another quick glossy collage in my art journal, contradicting the “art” part but very much feeling like “a journal”. Like a home of random things, of my ephemera. Again, a thousand circles living on one spread: polka dot wrapping paper and recycled office/meeting doodles! Each page includes so many different elements and ideas. If you’re […]

Taking time for what you love

Taking time for what you love

I fell in love with painting on fabric when first tried it on fabric patches three years ago. I later used those patches to sew my Magic Mixed Media Bag, a bag I still use almost every day. Recently I got a compliment about it at a Knitting Caf event. Only those who embrace creativity […]

Art journal peek: Circle Fascination

Art journal peek: Circle Fascination

I have an endless fascination with circles. It goes round and round and never stops. Sometimes I work with a form intentionally, sometimes I look up from my art journal page and to my surprise notice the same form everywhere. Here it’s the circle, reoccurring everywhere in different ways. Does this happen to you too? […]

Art Journal Peek: Doodles on paint

Art Journal Peek: Doodles on paint

I think birthdays and springtime (and birthdays in springtime) are a great time to think about all the things we love. When I need a dose of youth, I can draw from the positive energy of all that is good in my life and in my world. Andria Related PostsArt Journal with almost “finished” pages […]

trying to figure it out

trying to figure it out

Important in life. I’m trying to figure out what is important in my life. What is the most important parts of your life? What makes your world go round? What makes your heart sing? Lots of circles on the left page – after reading a prompt over at Inspire me Thursday that I didn’t post […]

No sharp edges

No sharp edges

Studio Friday theme is all round things! Life can feel very boring and square sometimes, but if we look around carefully we see the rounds in life. The rounds don’t have sharp edges, the round moves with grace. It’s in the details, the view you get when you go close to things, that you get […]
