All Good Things

Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - I made this spread on a page made of wax paper--I'd used various materials for the pages of this art journal, and I've been loving working on all of them. I started off by brushing acrylics on the page. I then adhered lots and lots of… Continue reading All Good Things

Pursue Your Dreams

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge] Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - Like it sometimes happens, this spread had a lot of misses going on, but in spite of that, it turned out okay in the end. I started the spread by trying out a ghost print from a… Continue reading Pursue Your Dreams

New Art Journals

I'm ready for this year with a new pair of art journals--an A6 one and a mini-book--that I bound and prepped recently! (I actually have three journals now--I'd bound the third one last year, and use it occasionally.) So far, I've used loose A6-sized pages for my art journaling, which I'd eventually bind into a… Continue reading New Art Journals

Mixed Media Frame

I recently finished stitching a Halloween cross-stitch piece, and thought it'd be fun to make a Halloween-themed mixed media frame for it. The stitched area is pretty small--14cm x 21cm (approx. 5.5in x 8in) , so for the frame to not overwhelm the stitching, I kept the frame fairly narrow, and any ornamentation to a… Continue reading Mixed Media Frame

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

Embrace the Fuzziness | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Top 5 at More Mixed Media challenge]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… Continue reading Embrace the Fuzziness | Art Journal

Be Dazzling | Inspiration Station

Time for a much-delayed Inspiration Station reveal. (Inspiration Station is a creative challenge where my sis and I go on our artistic journeys with themes that we come up with.) Here's one of my photographs that I'd chosen for the inspiration - I didn't realize it until now, but it's been three months since our… Continue reading Be Dazzling | Inspiration Station

Valet tray

I'd been thinking of making a small tray that would hold not only my car keys, but also arbitrary jewelry items like the hair clips that I regularly use, or small accessories (like said clips, earrings, bracelets...) that I'd pick out for wearing the next day. So I recently made one using papier mâché. Technically,… Continue reading Valet tray
