A lot of Art Journaling


Let's just say that this Mixed Media/Art Journaling experiment is tuning into a slight obsession. I'm really having fun! So first this is my page for CiLi in Papers. I used Distress Paint, water-soluble crayons, texture paste, Magic Medium and some stamps. And a white gel pen. 

Take time to do what makes your soul happy, I think that's what art journaling is to me. Just fun and messy and meditative. I love how this page turned out.

I gave monoprinting a try, I got a jelly plate and started playing. I'm nt thrilled about the results so far, I need more practice. Some of them turned out quite fun and I used them as collage backgrounds for some of my pages. Like this one. Very much inspired by Rae Missigman. I love seing her videos on Vimeo, they are so inspiring! I did a bit of everything on this, I used some feathers I made in Illustrator as image transfers, they look kind of pretty .

This page was a disaster, I covered it up a couple of times before this happened. I really like it now but it was a struggle. 

And this page I just played and ti turned out really nice. I love adding mist and Distress paint mixed with water on gessoed sufaces and letting it run. It's so pretty. 

Well, that's it for today. Hope to see you soon again. Have a lovely weekend <3

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
