Recent Artwork

These are the first two pieces of art that I have done as requests. I’ve been very privileged to do these. I really enjoyed doing them and I hope that shows in the work. As always, thank you for taking the time to look 🙂

Mini Art Journals

Over the last few months, I have been making little art journals, following a tutorial by Jennibellie. These mini journals are essentially hand decorated painted paper with collage, doodles and other embellishments.

Art Journal Update

Let me say it straight up, I’m not a daily art journaller, I’m lucky if I manage one art journal page a week. I do write in a journal every day but it is just writing with bits and bobs stuck in that remind me of the day or cards I have been sent by friends. My art journals are for experimenting in and sometimes I can start a piece and not finish it until weeks later. Anyway, here are some of my art journal pages from the last 3-4 months; they are mostly faces, and the text around them are mostly quotes or lyrics from my favourite songs. Lots of inspiration and influence from Effy Wild and Tamara Laporte…thank you ladies xxx

My goal for this year is to keep expanding and developing my creativity, so I signed up to Life Book 2014. This is a mixed media course, organised by Tamara Laporte (Willowing Arts), which runs throughout the year and consists of weekly classes taught by a range of different artists.

Starting a new art journal

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!”

― C. JoyBell C.

I started a new art journal a few weeks ago…it’s always a bit daunting staring at the blank pages and wondering what to fill them with. Luckily there is a lot of help and guidance out on YouTube and various arts and crafts sites (I shall do a blog post on those one day). For this particular art journal, I wanted to put some of my favourite quotes/sayings alongside my art work…sometimes the link between the picture and the words is very obvious, sometimes it isn’t!
