Inspiration

I was inspired by an artist I saw at Wynwood Walls.  He made huge canvases out of magazine images.  I sized mine down for my art journal.

I like the effect,  I would normally reach for Paynes Grey or Black when blocking images but I liked the pink

Urban Grafitti the File Folder Edition

I love to make books and when I make a painty or repurposed journal I call it my Urban Graffiti series

 

This book was made out of a file folder using tons of paint, gesso,  ink  and of course my gelli plate

One of the inside pockets filled with tags

I cut openings in the cover so that the images could peek through

You can see some of the tags peeking through the openings

This was a fun journal / book to make

This is in my Moleskine art journal.  I know a lot of people think the paper is too thin but, this is my favorite journal to use.  It just feels greeat in your hands as it fills up

Another Long Absence

It seems my intentions are great for this blog but, my execution leaves much to be desired.

I have been trying to get more organized about this site so that when I have the ideas for the blog I am actually in a place where I can write them down and get them done.

Since I have been gone I have taught on a cruise ship headed to Alaska.  That was at the end of July and it was just this past friday that I was able to get my photos off my camera :)

I have designed and had manufactured (and SOLD OUT in one week, yeah me!) a line of stamps  for planners and a set for Art Journaling.  If you would like to see what they look like please click here for the online store:

How Does She Do It?  – this is the stamp set that is helping me get more organized

PS-107 – this stamp set is for people attending school or the parents

Ready Set Go – to help me with planning my next working vacation

and this is the set I designed for Art Journaling – Imperfection

They are BACK IN STOCK

This is a sample of the Art Journal Set which I have used just for fun.

Will try and post more images as I get them photographed. . . . and based on my track record it might be a while, so no one hold their breath!
