I Got Glasses


This layout was published last month in the Paperhaus Magazine and I had loads of fun doing it. The picture shows me with my new glasses…I guess my eyes are getting older- snigger


I painted the background with Luminarte Silks and also stamped with bubble wrap after applying some of the Luminarte Silk on top- love the effect.  I also used my Circuit Stencil and a pencil and just traced through the stencil -I love the effect.


The faux sewing I did with the Sew Easy Tool- which I love a lot- but always forget that I have it. You basically trace the stitching down and then I use a black journaling pen and just trace along- looks pretty real and makes it easy for some small stitching areas 😉

Here is all that I used


Do you have glasses? I actually like mine- although it took me a long time getting used to them and I still get a bit dizzy when the light changes.




There Is No One Way To Art

There is no one way to art. There is many ways. There is YOUR way. – Robert Ryman

I love this quote and it makes me fall even more in Love with Robert Ryman and his approach to art.


Lot’s of fun playing with my What’s The Point Stencil and some silhouettes I cut.


I had cut out the silhouettes and played with the mask and the stencil which I got out of the two figures. I layered the stencil over too and sprayed with Liquitex Spray Paints over it -I like the effect.


For the paper I used some Distress Inks – I just love how the Distress inks make every color pop.


Here is what I used for the page:


I Am Enough Art Journal Page


I played a bit around in my art journal and I love especially how the left page turned out . Sometimes it is good to just play because accidentally you might find a fun new way for a background – like I did 🙂


I also got a new color combo crush…you better get used to it- hehehe- I might use it again 😉


Have a creative day today 🙂


Closed Doors …or Word Emesis

My art journal is not only my technique-play book, it is also my way to express feelings and often an outlet for emotions. I think art is an amazing therapist- LOL- so much cheaper actually when a real one 😉 This page was done after I was REALLY upset a couple of weeks ago – LOL- doesn’t happen to often- but hey…can happen 😉


Lot’s of Liquitex Spray Paint over Stencils on here and then I played with the Liquitex Paint Markers-I love how you can paint with them over magazine pages, use them for writing or sketching and to blend areas in.


I wanted a grungy look here ….I guess I archived it. Actually I want this page as a wall of my studio- that would be cool- LOL.


If you art journal would you agree that it helps you deal with emotional stress better?


have a beautiful day


Standup Bass or…New Stencil with Stencil Girl Products

StandUpBass Stencil

New Stencil in the house and it is a 6×6 Standup Bass Stencil 🙂


One of my favorite things in our household is my husband’s standup bass- I just love that thing  – and I thought it would be a great stencil using it for everything related to music, or lyrics you quote , or layouts with bands, theater, concerts…etc 🙂


I used the stencil positive and negative at the same spot – meaning I sprayed over the stencil , then flipped it over at another spot to get the access paint onto the page and then took another color and sprayed over it again .


Love the dimension and the layers you build up with this method. Other than that I used Derwent Arbars, Dylusions and Liquitex Spraypaints with the background. The stamps you see are stamps I found at a store around the corner I am so in Love with them.


I hope you like my new stencil. It comes in two different sizes 6×6 and 4×4 inches.


Here is what I used for this art journal page


Have a beautiful and creative day !

huge hugs


Typewriter or…New Stencil with Stencil Girl Products


Time to show you my new 6×6 Typewriter Stencil 🙂

Typewriter …just love them..especially vintage ones. When I was in highschool I owned a huge office typewriter from the 40s. I wanted to be a writer or study journalism when I was a teenager and so my uncle and aunt gave me this typewriter and I hacked on it (you won’t believe how loud this thing was!) and started several books…they usually contained about 5 pages until I thought I would move on and write a different story- LOL. Anyway I knew I wanted to design a typewriter stencil since especially with art journals, vintage photos etc. I saw how it would be so much fun to use it.


I used Wendi Vecchi’s Black Embossing Paste over the stencil which is 6×6 inches – love the fluffy consistency the paste has and once it was dried I dabbed some Liquitex Markers over. The black of the paste makes the colors really pop off ad add even more dimension to the typewriter. Love it.


I used the heavy body acrylic paints for the background because I do love the texture I can create with it.


Hope you like it 🙂

Have a beautiful day

What’s The Point or…New Stencil with Stencil Girl Products


Ohhh I am so excited about this new What’s The Point stencil too because it has so many possibilities.


For this Scrapbooking layout I used my new What’s The Point Stencil with PanPastels. Beforehand I had also treated the paper with PanPastels, then laid the stencil on top and dabbed the paint through. I love how vibrant the dots become.


The photo btw shows my grand-aunt with I think some friends…I found this photo when I was moving her apartment and it made me laugh hard. I hope I can trigger her memory on the story behind this 🙂


It is a fun stencil to tie elements together 🙂 and I hope you like it


have an amazing day

huge hugs
