Springing into action

The rain and cold continue but I am really loving  staying in doors playing with many creative endeavors.  One is the art journal I started at the beginning of the year.  I did intend to write in it but it has evolved into a place to play with collage and mixed media techniques.  From several resources I made up a list of techniques (packing tape transfer, rubber stamp, etc), themes (ocean, winter, etc.) and other ideas that would provide a jump start on each page.  I printed them out and then cut them into strips and put them in a jar.  I fish around in the jar and pull out the various ideas - about 3 to 4 - and begin playing.  So, here are some of my results, enjoy!


  1. What delicate beautiful journal pages! I'm loving the little fan. It reminds me of an antique looking fan pendant that I got a couple of years ago. Great work. Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. Oh, how lovely! You've got a great way of combining colour and texture and that picking ideas out of a jar idea is excellent!
