Art Journal Share – 365 days❣

Here are some catch up pictures from my 365 days in the life of a journal….

Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…


Much Love and Peace…


Mosaic Books….

I created a Mosaic book of my February daily #365daysinthelifeofajournal art work….

Love Peace and Joy


Yoga HArt

I’ve been spending a lot of time working in the studio…my focus has been producing work from a place of oneness…

Meditation in color and movement…I like to think of it as movement in my heart space…it’s all love…

The work below was done in my #365daysinthelifeofajournal… My next post will show some the work that resulted from this journaling…

Enjoy ❣


Studio Color Explorations

This month’s challenge for me, is to look at color combinations differently and explore using them in various media….

Last week I used watercolors a medium I rarely use, though I love the wash of color produced… 

This week I’m working with mono printing on glass and Gelli plates using acrylics and sumi inks… 

What creative pursuits have captured your passions this week?

Ride the wind, and remember …


Be Inspired!

Much Love and Peace…


Free to Be….

Here’s my January 18th collage commemorating those who’s passion was for all people to be free..


And a time lapsed video of me creating it…


Have a very creative and inspired day doing the things that excite you and feeds your passions!

Much Peace and Love
