Birdy ATCs

Artists Trading Cards - sheet music, acrylic glaze, birdy stickers, flourish stamps, pablo pencil, distress ink, bronze gel pen.

For some reason I've never tried making ATCs before, but once I got started on these I found it was relaxing and fun to work on such a small scale. I think I might make some to use as business cards!

Home Sweet Home

Now that I've started art journalling again, I'm really enjoying it and find I can't stop! I wanted to try using some super-bright colours and create a child-like feeling for this page about how much I love being at home.

It actually took a lot of reworking and several layers of collage before I was happy with it, but I hope the effect is spontaneous and energetic.

Art Journalling

After a break of several weeks I've finally got my art journals off the shelf, and am having fun experimenting with ideas and techniques.
'Make One Mark' is a favourite prompt to help me get over that 'blank page/blank mind" feeling!
