Art Journal - Intuitive painting

Hi friends,

I love art journaling... it offers so much freedom without any expectations, guidelines, just painting the way you feel like. I did start with the colour palette from Words & Paintery. My art journal is my safe place, where I pour out my feelings, question the direction of my life and record a lot of self talk.

Check out the other inspiring projects by the Words & Paintery DT here.

( VIDEO Tutorial) : Scrapbooking on Canvas using 2craftychipboard & Prima Marketing

Hi friends,

Have you seen the moodboard at More than Words this month? 
It was instant inspiration for me & this what I created
using 2craftychipboard goodies & Prima Marketing medium and flowers.

My first thoughts on Delicate : Baby's touch, tissue, flowers
Fabrics: Lace, tissue

 Isnt this dreamcatcher chipboard from 2craftychipboard adorable?
Goes so well with the pretty Prima flowers and bird cages from the Rosibelle Prima pattern papers.
Here is the step by step video. I hope you enjoy the video.

 The sketch was inspired from Mixed media & Art moodboard

Simon Says : Splatter it

July challenge 

'Wings' made me want to try something very different, something I had never thought or tried before - using a gel press to make the background of the layout. The soft colours & the madonna like image made me want to choose this photo of mine with my kids. Brushes ofcourse to splatter & paint all over the page & background.

Wishing you sunshine & creative happiness this week.
