The Humblest things...

Another fun day was had in my art journal with these pages.. I am trying to do all different flowers to see how many different ones I can draw. I drew the butterfly too. I used some Helmar Decopaige glue for the book paper. I like cutting the book paper into shapes and then doodling all around them to incorporate them into the pages. The doodling part is always the fun part for me, doing all the stems on the flowers and adding all the little squiggles. The quote today is "The Power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes me happy and life lovely". I thought that quote kind of fitted with my word of the year being.. Oh wait that is the next blog post...

Have a great day

Happy New Year...

So New Year and new art journal pages.. On New Years day I had a lovely time in my art room and did the 2016 in my art journal. I picked out some of my DecoArt paints and just started doing some flowers adding the 2016 in the middle. Then my favourite part adding doodling with my pens and adding a few Zendangles. A little bit of stamping with the honeycomb Prima stamp and it was done. It was so relaxing listening to music and just painting and doodling.. Watch out for more pages I have done since will pop them up on the blog in the next few days.

Have a great day and Happy 2016.

Year in review...

Well another year has come and gone and what an amazing arty year I have had. I have filled one and a half art journals and have had so much fun learning new techniques.. Here is my best 9 of 2015 on Instagram.

Many a happy day I have had in my Fun Room (as my family call my art room). Listening to music mainly Ed Sheeran and painting using my DecoArt paints and the awesome Helmar glues.  As soon as I add Gesso to the pages, I am off in another world and who knows what is going to happen on the pages. I always just cut and glue, paint, draw and doodle all such fun stuff. Started off the year with a zentangle start. Then drawing lots of Kawaii characters in between pages in my art journal. Collage always seems to make an appearance and have enjoyed my time in The Artstronauts club immensely, always inspiration to be had on there. Mixed Media Monday's live with Tracy is always a giggle and fun to catch up with the wonderful group of online friends and have a chat. I have met some amazing friends online who are all so giving with information on how to do things and linking inspirational pages and fabulous YouTube videos. I have enjoyed many of  Rae Missigman's 15 min challenges and often pop the timer on to challenge myself when I art journal. I have learnt so much in one year so I am so looking forward to the year to come and the things I will learn this year..

Have a great day
Sandy :)
