#WOYWW 360 Accountability

Wow! this is amazing we are on woyww 360 already!
Hosted by Julia Dunnit at Stamping Ground

Well, here is my desk all neat and clean
I'm so proud of it lol

I've been organizing my space with the idea of teaching
all those things that I have learned in the past few years
especially about art journaling and mixed media.

I have come to realize that my shyness have been so strong
that it hasn't let me come out and show others what I love and enjoy doing:
teaching and art :)

So here I am taking my first step of accountability
by sharing with all of you what I want to do,
let's see how this works out :)

with love,

Sharing Little Nuggets of Knowledge (Art Related). New to Art Journaling?

Today I am doing something different here on my blog
I am going to start sharing
art related
little nuggets of knowledge
you will benefit from them especially if you are new at art journaling or mixed media.

I thought it would be fun to share little things here and there
I know along the way I'll find something new for me too
and we'll learn together :)

We are going to start with art journaling.

What is art journaling?
Art Journaling to me is self expression,

is making art in a notebook or a sketchbook,
is a combination (if you desire so) of art and words.

An art journal can be as private or as public as you wish.
Is a place where you express your feelings or

simply practice your art,
here you can experiment with art techniques,

or you can put your ideas down on paper in any desire way,
you can write or draw about your life,
you don't have to have any special skills,
you don't have to know how to draw or paint

Simply put an art journal is a notebook where you do art and express yourself.

Now is your turn, please let me know if this post was helpful,
what questions do you have about art journaling or mixed media.
I would love to help you by answering any questions you have.
Please note I am not an expert, I just love art journaling and mixed media :)
and I love to teach :)

with love,

Mixed Media Flower Girl Collage

Hello there :)

Today I have a collage made with a digital image
provided by Digital Delights
through Craft your passion challenges blog
the image is called Flower Power Basket of Daisies

The background is made with spray paints and a stencil
then I added the grass on the bottom which I cut out from a magazine
I glued the girl which I colored using a waterbrush and watercolors
and then added some flower die cuts using some patterned scrap paper.

Very easy, simple and cute :)

I hope you like it and inspire you to make some art :)
