Mixed Media - Art Journal Page #13

Finally I managed to finish editing my latest Art Journal page and share it. It's a pretty fast and simple one this time, but I like the way it turned out. It kind of reminds me a bit of a city skyline at night.

I used mostly different Distress products on this page and I am happy that I gave my Distress Sprays a second chance, they really worked out well this time and  I didn't have any problems with them.



Of course I also filmed a tutorial for this painting and you can find it on my YouTube channel or here below.

Animal portraits

I recently took some new portraits of my cats since I didn't have any recent ones. I also wanted to try out my new daylight lamps that I bought, but I wasn't all that happy about them in the end unfortunately. I don't know if it's my camera that's the problem, but somehow it thought the room was still too dark and didn't want to focus properly. But with the lamps in place, the room was really bright and it should have been a "piece of cake" to get sharp images, guess I'll just have to experiment more with it. I do have a feeling something happened with my camera when I left it at a service place that was going to clean out some oil stains though.

First up is three photos  of my young girl named Deena. She's probably the most adorable cat I've ever had. And the last photo is of my older female Freja. She didn't really want to have her picture taken so I only managed to get one photo of her with her eyes somewhat open.

Sunset in Thailand

Later today I am going to share a new Art Journal video here and on YouTube, but first I though I would show you some photos I took in Thailand when I was there last month.

We had a great time there and we stayed about a week on Railay Beach, where we also watched a very beautiful sunset from the beach. Seeing these photos really makes me want to go back to the warm weather and swim in the ocean. But here it's just snow and cold weather right now, and I don't particularly like that.

Mixed Media - Teal Canvas Painting - Art Journal Page #12

Today I have made another art piece that I want to share with you. I used a thick 12x12 canvas, some texture paste and a few colors of acrylic paints. I wanted a piece of art to hang on the wall in my craft room and since I have decorated the room with teal I thought this canvas would fit in the room.

It is a very easy piece to make, all you need to do is add some color here and there and you're done. Fast and easy, just the way I like it.


Of course I also filmed a tutorial for this painting and you can find it on my YouTube channel or here below.

Simple Sunday #21 - Watercoloring

Now I am back from Thailand and today I am sharing a new Simple Sunday card. I know it's technically Monday today, but I didn't have enough time yesterday to finish the editing so I'll just have to post it today instead.

The card I am making today is a clean and simple card with just a colored image. I usually don't make cards like this, but every now and then I like to change things up and do something different.



I also filmed a tutorial for this card that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.
