Fly Little Bird | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge][Challenge win: Winner / future guest designer at Arty Divas challenge]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… Continue reading Fly Little Bird | Art Journal

Blossom for Your Own Joy | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge]It's Inspiration Station time! (This is where my sis and I throw themes at each other to inspire our creative sessions.) The theme this time was from my sister, who came up with a much better tic tac toe board than I did last time. My project… Continue reading Blossom for Your Own Joy | Art Journal

Flowers and Hope | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Top 5 at Arty Divas challenge]I'd created some good gel-print negatives and ghost prints in a gel-printing session recently, but I just couldn't figure out how to work further with the prints. Finally, I just decided to create without worrying how. The result - this spread: I pulled this gel-print from the negative… Continue reading Flowers and Hope | Art Journal

Letters | Art Journal

As a welcome distraction from the Valentine's madness of hearts and candies, Jennifer from the Art Elements team came up with the theme of Letters - which can be interpreted in many different ways, romantic or otherwise. It's inspiring how a tiny letter is the building block for a word, a paragraph, an epic. How… Continue reading Letters | Art Journal

100 Days | Bookbinding

I've finally wrapped up my 100 days of art sessions. Literally - by binding all the art journal pages into a book! I mentioned last time that I hadn't thought of the covers earlier, so I got an extra session from making the covers for the book. I used a single sheet to make both… Continue reading 100 Days | Bookbinding

100 Days | Art Journal (11)

Alrighty, this is the final batch of my 100 art journaling sessions! Hope you've enjoyed joining me on my adventure, which I started writing about a little more than two months ago. This batch has a lot of background creation on the actual journal pages. The focal items are painted somewhere else, fussy-cut and pasted… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (11)

100 Days | Art Journal (10)

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)

100 Days | Art Journal (8)

I've made quite a few art journal pages now. I think my current struggle is not with the creating, but with catching up and posting about the pages I've created so far. 🙂 Clicking pictures of them during daylight is made hard by either my day job, or the current cloudy spell, or by me… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (8)

100 Days | Art Journal (7)

Still going strong with my art journal! I've not been a fan of adding quotes or writing in my art journals, but in this batch, I thought I'd go out of my comfort zone and try it out at places. It didn't feel as weird as it usually feels. I've probably gone from "gawd no!"… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (7)
