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

Embrace the Fuzziness | Art Journal

The vagueness surrounding us during these unprecedented times was making me go through pretty unhelpful emotions. I made this art journal spread recently about embracing all the vague, fuzzy, not-sure-what-you're-doing stuff as just being part of current life - I cannot avoid it but I can choose how to react to it in a manner… Continue reading Embrace the Fuzziness | Art Journal

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

Blossom for Your Own Joy | Art Journal

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 uses the rightmost vertical line of elements -… Continue reading Blossom for Your Own Joy | Art Journal

Flowers and Hope | Art Journal

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 of my stencil. I used watercolors on… Continue reading Flowers and Hope | Art Journal
