Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

My recent artistic inclinations are towards art journaling, so it's a different sort of creative high when I make the occasional jewelry. 🙂 And what better to motivate me to work on some earrings than the We're All Ears challenge! Erin's prompt for April is based on our current reality - since most of us… Continue reading Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

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

Find the Love… | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft challenge][Challenge win: Designer spotlight at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge]A gel print that I made recently in my art journal had, in my opinion, become unsalvageable, so I overwrote it with a completely different spread. I made this A6 spread over multiple days - I'd… Continue reading Find the Love… | Art Journal

Flutter | Mixed Media Tag

[Challenge win: Designer spotlight at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge]I have these pretty Craftangles decoupage papers in my stash, which I'd been wanting to use for a while. I didn't want to completely obscure them by using them as scrapbook / art-journal backgrounds, nor did I want to use them for decoupage. (I still haven't… Continue reading Flutter | Mixed Media Tag

Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

When I started dabbling with art journaling late last year,  I ended up making some tags as well. I loved the small work surface of tags, and how I could just use up clay components I've already created, or just whip up bake up a component or two quickly (which is great use for scrap… Continue reading Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

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)

Ruby Steel Earrings | We’re All Ears

It's time for yet another We're All Ears challenge. Erin had an interesting theme this month - names from a random name generator! She generated a list of names for us to choose from; or, she said, we could generate names on our own. And make earrings that suit the name. For my earrings, I… Continue reading Ruby Steel Earrings | We’re All Ears

100 Days | Art Journal (3)

I'm keeping up with my goal of making art journal pages for a hundred days to help with my creative mojo. (The goal is not an 'every day' one though, since I don't want this to become a chore instead of a creative retreat.) For a few of the pages here, I experimented with tactile… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (3)

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
