Lozzy, the host of this challenge, creates beautiful digi-papers, and I used one of her earlier digi-paper sets, Dream Chic, for my art journal spread. I tore the digi-paper almost along its diagonal, and adhered it along opposite corners… Continue reading Little Things

Mini Art Journal

[Challenge win: Top-5 at More Mixed Media challenge] I've been working on and off on a mini journal that I made early this year. When I was not in the mood for a long(ish) art journaling session, but still wanted to make something, I'd whip out this mini journal, and quickly stamp, scribble, draw, or… Continue reading Mini Art Journal

Let Your Dreams Take Flight | Art Journal

Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - I'd left this very first page in my art journal blank, since I'd originally intended to convert this into a cover. However, later in the year, I made a pair of covers for the art journal, so I made a spread on the blank first page.… Continue reading Let Your Dreams Take Flight | Art Journal

Undefeated | Art Journal

Here's a recent art journal spread of mine - I first tried the focal image on a different piece of paper, inspired by a Creative Jumpstart lesson. I didn't manage to get the technique (on the dress and the headdress) right, but there's always next time. 😉 So I just left the dress be, and… Continue reading Undefeated | Art Journal

Celebrate | Mixed Media Tag

I made this mixed media tag recently - I applied clear gesso on a brown tag, and added some texture using modeling paste - a bit with stencils, and a bit directly using a palette knife. I stamped over this using black acrylic paints. I love how this produces an effect very much like using… Continue reading Celebrate | Mixed Media Tag
