Fly Little Bird | Art Journal

It's fun to impose mini challenges on yourself once in a while. These days, I'm attempting to use a single stencil as much as possible for a given spread, and it's amazing to me that ideas occur when I thought there's no way I could stretch just one stencil for an entire session. And sometimes,… Continue reading Fly Little Bird | Art Journal

Be You | Art Journal

I've been drawing and coloring more in my art journal spreads lately, and it's interesting to observe colors play with one another, and how one medium affects another. For the background of this spread, I mainly used the paint lifting technique and acrylics pouncing. The acrylics are metallic, so the checks in the background shine… Continue reading Be You | Art Journal

Burnt Metal Earrings | Inspiration Station

It's Inspiration Station time! (This is where my sis and I work on our respective creative projects based on themes that we think of.) It was my turn this time to come up with a theme, and I chose a modified version of a picture that I'd clicked of my sister's alcohol ink experiments.

The vagueness surrounding us during these unprecedented times was making me go through pretty unhelpful emotions.

Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

My recent artistic inclinations are towards art journaling, so it's a different sort of creative high when I make the occasional jewelry. 🙂 And what better to motivate me to work on some earrings than the We're All Ears challenge! Erin's prompt for April is based on our current reality - since most of us… Continue reading Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

Art Joins Hearts | Art Journal

A recent art journal spread of mine. I started on this when one of the ATCs that I was working on just vanished - just vanished! - from my work bench. I debated between starting another set of ATCs and starting a new art journal spread. The art journal spread won, and I'm happy with… Continue reading Art Joins Hearts | Art Journal

Safety, Support, Strength | Art Journal

I made an art journal spread recently, starting on it when I was feeling really frustrated, working on it intermittently, and ending it when I felt especially grateful to my near & dear ones for being there for me. I started the page with some scribble journaling, which I planned to cover up. I pasted… Continue reading Safety, Support, Strength | Art Journal
