Hello art journalers, it has been quiet here for a while, I have been really busy with my daughter's dance rehearsals, photos, performances on 5 nights and my son's graduation from primary school. But things have settled down and I finally had time to create a video tutorial for you. Today I show you how [...]

TBT – Art journal video 10/11/2013

By | October 27th, 2016|TBT - Throwback Thursday|

Hello art journalers! I am bringing you another art journal video today. This was my first entry in the large Dylusions journal. I have to say, it is not my favourite to work in. The quality of the paper barely holds up to all I through at it. It works if you don't do too [...]

Inktober wrap up

By | October 25th, 2016|art challenges, art journaling|

Say what?! Inktober wrap up? Yes..., see... I have fallen off the wagon and decided that with the little time I have, I want to do other things again. At least I have managed to do 14 days, almost half the month! It is a stellar improvement from the single drawing each I have done [...]

On my desk 23rd October 2016

By | October 23rd, 2016|art journaling|

On Saturday I started playing with watercolour in my small art journal. Just random markings and letting colours flow into each other.

I thought I show you what I have been working on lately. I am fairly busy at the moment, so don't have that much time to art but I do try to squeeze some art in here and there. Inktober is in full swing – are you participating? Every October, artists all over the world take [...]

TBT – Sometimes less is more 06/10/2013

By | October 6th, 2016|TBT - Throwback Thursday|

This art journal entry popped up in my Facebook memories today. Some entries don't require hours and hours of our time, like this one. Some lined notebook paper, 2 stencils (TCW Spin Tops & Baubles), gesso, washi tape, 2 gorgeous Dylusions Ink Sprays (Funky Fuchsia and Pure Sunshine) and a black pen is all I [...]

TBT – Art journal video 27/10/2013

By | September 29th, 2016|Nat's video tutorials, TBT - Throwback Thursday|

Welcome to TBT - Throwback Thursday! Every Thursday I will feature art which I have done some time ago. I thought for my first TBT it would be nice to feature a first I did all those years ago - an art journal video tutorial. Back then I didn't dare to speak, thought my accent [...]

Mini watercolour challenge

By | September 26th, 2016|art challenges, art journaling, watercolour|

I don't know about you but I am pretty bad when it comes to participation of art challenges. First I am all excited and plan to do it all and then life gets in the way, I miss some days and then I lose motivation since I already missed so many days. But here is [...]

Here is to new beginnings

By | September 22nd, 2016|this & that|

Here I am again - on a completely empty blog. My website got hacked a while ago and we have tried to save it but there were constant issues. So I made the tough decision to completely erase my hard work from over 7 years and start over new. Yes, it was hard to let [...]
