Be well this Holiday Season…

…and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you all for reading along and take the time to check what’s new on my blog. I appreciate it so much. I’m trying to write more letters to friends and family again, so in the evenings, once the kids are in bed and the kitchen is clean, I take […]

Something different

Hi everyone, Here comes a different kind of post: My children (12 and 7) like to draw and paint as well (and fold origami and paper airplanes among other things :)) Recently they had a fundraiser in school where both of them didn’t do well (selling food items that we are not really fond of […]

October art

Besides the pictures already posted, here are some more to all of you who are not following on Instagram. Another peek into my art journal: Calligraphy practice – I’d like to fit more of this into my schedule…   A card I painted for a very dear friend’s birthday – she received it meanwhile, so it’s […]

Back to blog

I haven’t paid too much attention to my blog lately. I blame the Summer break and recent travel. At least I’d like to post a few pictures of some of my art journal pages. If time allows, I will post more over the next few months. If you are active on Instagram, I’d be happy […]

Published again! Yay :)

This time in Somerset Digital Studio! I was approached last year about the collage that is now featured in the magazine. I assumed that this collage will be shown in some sort of gallery, but I didn’t expect to be featured on two pages! (even though I did provide the insights on how I created this […]

Digital Collage and Art Journal Page

If I don’t have time to get my paints out, I love to play with Photoshop and images that I have on hand (I often scan my paintings at different stages – or take pictures of those bigger formats, because they serve well as backgrounds for such digital play). This collage or art journal page […]

Catching up & PPF

Can you say: ‘Happy mail!’?!

If so, then you probably know what I’m talking about. Yes, iHanna’s DIY Postcard Swap. Even though I sent out quite a few mail art letters and card over the past year, I haven’t joined one of her swaps. So, last week I signed up and here you can see the first steps of prepping […]

A different view of birds

If you’re into art journaling, I’m sure you visited ‘daisy yellow’ before. Tammy invited me to write a guest post for her DPP (daily paper prompt) series. Well, today is the day – I’m really honored, Tammy – Thanks again! Just hop on over if you haven’t been there today. I wrote about ‘negative painting’ […]

On my desk…

…this past weekend: My younger son at work on my messy desk. So that’s my desk for woyww this time 🙂 It’s such a pleasure to craft or do some sort of art with children. I truly admire their sense of humor and curiosity. They’re so free and pure in their thoughts – we can […]
