Faces – 2

Continuing with my series of faces / portraits, here's another one I made a while back - I still don't have a style of my own, and it's fun to create these faces however I want to (or rather, to create them however they end up turning out. 😉 ) I don't create them as… Continue reading Faces – 2

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's a recent art journal page of mine - I made this on a wax paper page that I'd included in my journal.

A Taste of Pastels

I mentioned a while ago that I've joined Wanderlust, a mixed media course, this year. The course started out with pastels, which is a completely new medium for me. A long time ago, I'd tried working with one or two oil pastels from my stash since they were not being used much, but I didn't… Continue reading A Taste of Pastels

New Art Journals

The year's almost ending, and since I've managed to fill up my A6 journal and mini journal--most of the latter during Inktober--I made new art journals for the new year. Until recently, I used to enjoy my arty sessions on loose sheets, which I'd bind into a journal when I'd used up a fair number… Continue reading New Art Journals

You Are Sweet

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge][Challenge win: Winner at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's an art journal page that I created recently - I started this page with some gel-printing fun. I'd already added negatives from a previous gel-printing session on a textured page, and now I used a stencil and acrylics… Continue reading You Are Sweet

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

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
