Wow I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post, but no worries I’m still alive and well 🙂 and on a better note still creating. I have been so busy with work, vacation and wedding plans as of late. I have designed and completed all of my wedding invitation cards by hand. Now I just need to find the time to send them off!
Previously I posted about my art journal. I have now made several new ones. Even though none of them are complete, I have different uses for all of them. I ‘m basically just using them fore experiements with things such as drawing, painting, mixed media, recycling, amoung other things. Here is just a few pages and covers that I have made. Nothing too fancy, like I it’s just for experiments.
Some of these journals were created by using milk cartons, cereal boxes, envelopes, buttons and broken jewelry.
While I have been away I have been expermenting a lot with different journaling techniques which has been very fun. I have been gathering a lot of information from Youtube via tutorials and became inspired by others’ work. I have done a lot more than what is shown here, i don’t take pictures of every process. This is just a reminder for me of what i have been working on and hopefully time will show my improvement.
Well well, until next time!

I have lots of jewlery and even when it breaks I never want to throw it away because it’s so pretty! So I decided to make some use out of some of my junk jewels!
I started with this:
Hello again! I have been up to some more artsy experiments recently. I’ve watched a few videos about mixed media art journals and thought the techniques and ideas were very interesting so I decided to give it a go. Here is what I have created so far:
This was an empty journal I got as a present a while back and have never used so I decided to start with that. Continue reading
Wow, it has been some time since I have posted so this will be a big mix of things that I have been up to lately.
I have recently joined Pinterest as suggested by a friend of mine. I joined this site to gather new ideas to help me follow a more creative path. This site as been very inspirational to me.
I haven’t post a lot of my crafts yet, but I plan to share more so that others may be inspired.
I have been testing some new hairstyles including cut and coloring. Art? sure I could consider this an art form or at least it shows a bit of my creative abilities. Here’s another picture of a 50’s hairstyle I have been toying with. Continue reading
I’m not sure If many people know that I designed my own tattoos. My tattoo artist made my ideas come to life! I drew my basic concepts and he made it more real that I imagined they would be. My first tattoo is of 8 stars which represent a few different things for me. I was born on august 8 and my anniversary is on the 8th of february. Just a nice number for me. Why Stars? I just like them and thought it would look good!
I was feeling a bit bored and creative with no money to go buy new supplies to tinker with. So I decided to use what I had lying around the house and you will never believe what I made. Again I must say I was in a bit of a random mood which is always fun for me 😉
Things I used:
- Newspaper & Paper tape
- Water color paint
This is the result!
Recycling can become a very fun project!
Things I used:
- Toilet paper rolls (stuff the TP rolls with newspaper to make sure the shape holds)
- Old skirt used for fabric
- Pink decoration (from the top of a perfume bottle, looks like a hair tie)
- Old small magazine covered with a piece of cardboard for the base
- Black plastic tube for stand (the smaller one I used another TP roll for the stand)
- Hot glue gun
