XOXO

Here's a recent art journal page of mine - In my handmade art journal, I'd included a tea-dyed textured paper sheet as well, and for this art journaling session, I used one of those pages. I started the session by spreading acrylics on a gel plate and smooshing the page onto it. I then ran… Continue reading XOXO

Faces – 1

When it comes to using faces in my art journaling, I enjoy making abstract, distorted ones since they only need to roughly conform to the semantics of a human face. The proportions can be off, the lines can be haphazard, the coloring can be wacky--it still reminds me of a face, and it renders quickly… Continue reading Faces – 1

Inktober 2022 Doodles

We moved house recently, and in the ensuing madness, it was hard to keep up with my usual creative therapy of art journaling. I mostly stuck to doodling during this transition period, since it does not require a lot of supplies--and it helped maintain my sanity. 🙂 We're settling down now, and in between the… Continue reading Inktober 2022 Doodles

Inspiration Comes From Within

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's a recent art journal page of mine - I made this on kraft paper. After a couple of attempts at making art on kraft paper, I've found that it is a completely different experience than using plain uncolored paper. I like it! 🙂 I first… Continue reading Inspiration Comes From Within

A Dash of Doodles – 2

Here are some more Zentangle-inspired doodles that I made recently - As usual, I used gel pens for drawing, and discovered that the ink has dried away in some of them. In my art journals, I don't much use gel pens that are not black or white--not intentionally, it just turns out that way. :-)… Continue reading A Dash of Doodles – 2

All Good Things

Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - I made this spread on a page made of wax paper--I'd used various materials for the pages of this art journal, and I've been loving working on all of them. I started off by brushing acrylics on the page. I then adhered lots and lots of… Continue reading All Good Things

You Matter

Another Monday arrives, and brings with it my third week in the designer spotlight on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this month! This week, the challenge is: Sparkle and Shine. Sparkle and shine is not really my cup of tea. 🙂 I do own metallic acrylics, however, so I tried using them in an art… Continue reading You Matter
