Art Journal updates

Sometimes you just have to record the little things that make you happy.






Have a great week!

Are you ready to tumble?!

Are you ready to tumble?! Then let's get arting!


I adore these SEI Tumble Dyes! Awesome stuff for art journaling, especially when you work with lots of layers! They don't reactivate like some inks and dyes. They are permanent when dry, or better yet, heat set them. 

I don't think I could art without them now. For those of you looking for a place to get them online, check out Roben-Marie's store Paperbag Studios! I've had nothing but great service and selection from Roben-Marie, and even if I could find them cheaper elsewhere (which I haven't), I would still get them from her as a show of support for the art community.

So, a little arting tonight with a side of chocolate? Why, yes, thank you I think I will!

Some weekend fun

There's something satisfying about sitting down to your art desk or craft table, and pulling out some materials and just getting your hands busy without worry about the outcome, but loving the outcome all the same.


I love just playing with different textures with pretty colours.


And playing with different styles. After just completing an online course that has its basis in doodling, I thought I hated it. I tried to work with it, just to try. And weeks later, when I sat down to the desk, doodling came out with a whole different feel.





Make sure to take time for yourself, to care for yourself first. Say to yourself every day, "Love Me" so that you can love others better.

Polar Opposites

Every notice how sometimes depending on your mood, using the same products you can get totally different end results?

That was my weekend.

This is a canvas I did, using KCB digital scrapbook papers, after I was inspired by this pin in Pinterest.


And here's what I did with the leftover hearts I had cut out from the papers.


I guess my art this weekend would be what you could think of as polar opposites in style. And that works for me.
