Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

When I started dabbling with art journaling late last year,  I ended up making some tags as well. I loved the small work surface of tags, and how I could just use up clay components I've already created, or just whip up bake up a component or two quickly (which is great use for scrap… Continue reading Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

Henna on Blue Earrings | We’re All Ears

A brand new year means checking out Colors of the Year from various sources. 🙂 And the We're All Ears January challenge has done exactly that - Erin provided a list of Colors of 2020, and asked us to base our earrings on one or more of these colors.

I'm almost at the end of my intended 100 art journaling sessions. I'm chuffed that I've kept up with my goal for so long, and that you've been with me all this while! 🙂 In the first page, I tried a salt-induced texture like I did earlier, but it didn't take. I journaled on it… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (10)

100 Days | Art Journal (9)

I discovered in my previous batch of art journal pages that I like to draw in my art journals. I seem to continue doing that in this batch. The first page is a series of concentric circles that I used graduated cutters to trace out, which I then filled in using gel pens. This was… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (9)
