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

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 (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)

100 Days | Art Journal (6)

This is the 6th entry of my 100 Days of Art Journaling series, and my 150th post overall! Thank you for your support, friends, and for joining me in my creative journey - it means a lot to me. 🙂 Lately, my creative sessions have been haphazard. Due to work (and life in general), I… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (6)

100 Days | Art Journal (5)

I think I'll publish my Art Journaling for a Hundred Days posts more frequently, since there's only so many of them I can talk about in one post 🙂 and there's so many of them that I've made already. I added texture to the first page using crumpled cheap TP, and added visual detailing with… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (5)

100 Days | Art Journal (1)

Lately, I've been feeling less creative (and generally less in a good mood) than I'd like, so I thought I should just make stuff and see if it helps with the mojo. My focus is mainly on art journaling, and I'd like to make something every day for a hundred days. However, the goal is… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (1)
