Where Flowers Bloom

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's a recent art journal page of mine - I made this on tea-dyed copy paper page that I've included in my journal. I started my session with some fun gel printing. I smooshed acrylics onto the plate and transferred them to the page; I used… Continue reading Where Flowers Bloom

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.

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

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

Look Within Yourself

[Challenge win: Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's a recent, quick art journal spread of mine - I made this spread on pages that I'd used tea to dye, which gives them a brownish tinge. I started out with some gel plate fun. I used acrylics with a stencil to fill up the… Continue reading Look Within Yourself

Flying Starts With a Dream

Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - I started the background of the spread with some gel printing--I used my gel plate for some plain coloring initially, then added in a stencil and white acrylic paint for a leafy gel-printed pattern. Over this, I used stamps--both bought and one that I hand-carved--with dye… Continue reading Flying Starts With a Dream
