Roses & Gold Washi Tape

Roses & Gold Washi Tape

Another collage time video! Yay! This time with a lot of rose illustrations. Roses are always in fashion around here, so I keep cutting them out and keeping rose fodder and inspiration around. I think I should call this Traveler’s Notebook Art Journal “Collage time with iHanna” since that is the name of the video […]

Can new washi tape make you Happy?

Can new washi tape make you Happy?

True confession time: I balance between knowing that you can’t buy happiness, and then doing it anyway at times. Yes, spending money on “things” can make a girls mood lift, just like doodling can. Some shop for clothes or shoes, or buy new towels in matching colors even though they already have enough of them… […]

Art Journal Peek: Find your Passion

Art Journal Peek: Find your Passion

When you find your passion, keep at it! That’s what I wrote on that little label in my Art Journal. I believe in it. And it sounds easy, but it’s not. Especially if you’re anything like me, and are passioned about a gazillion things… How do you divide your time between it all? How do […]

Yellow like the Sun in Artsyville

The Artsyville special design tape is yellow. And awesome. I so love it! And I think yellow is my new favorite colour, at least this summer. I think yellow is perfect in the summer, don’t you agree? So warm, happy and bright. I didn’t mean to leave this little blog without posts this week, but […]

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 […]

Washi tape Ideas

Washi tape Ideas

It’s Week in the Life (read more about it here) and I am full on documenting my life. I notice how fun it is, but also how beautiful my life is.

Evidence Pages

Evidence Pages

An evidence page is a page in your Art Journal or notebook where you break out new stuff! An Evidence Page is a way to document new art materials. Try it out, make a kind of sampler page to get started using that new material you just bought or got as a gift… This is […]

Washi tape is patterned masking tape

Washi tape is patterned masking tape

I caved in after lots of inner cravings. I bought “a few” rolls of what is called washi tape in Japanese. It’s really patterned masking tape, and there are all kinds of pretty patterns. Dots, stripes, squares… Some came in “cakes” with ribbon and topping, so cute you could eat them! All of these were […]
