Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everybody and tons of inspiration to the people who like art, love art, enjoy doing art, breath art and can't live without it.

These are two of my mixed media creation which I talked about the last time.I called them inspirational cards.I am not sure if I came up with this name or I borrowed it from somewhere but I like it.They are 4x6 and they can easily fit in a photo album with pockets.I prefer this size better because it is kind of easier to work on than the ATC size.To make them I did collage,used stamps,painted with acrylics,drew,doodled,used different kinds of papers.I hope you enjoy them.

Sonya Watching Barny

This is another page of my art journal- a double sketch of my daughter at the age of three.
I am not in a mood of painting today- too busy getting ready for Christmas.I have to wrap some presents ,to get the stoking fillers ready,to write and send some cards to relatives here in town and so on little things that are time consuming.
I will be happy if I have a little time for a sketch or a mixed media something.I have finished three mixed media cards which I would call inspirational cards but I haven't found the time to upload them in the computer and post them in my blog.
It is still very cold outside as it was the last three days.This morning when I took my daughter to school it was 6 bellow zero.It felt cold but not so bad.There was not any wind which was nice.I don't want to sound crazy but I love winter,especially the winter sunny and snowy days.

A Page Of My Art Journal

When my daughter was a little baby I did not have much time for painting but the urge to create was so strong that I would use every little bit of time to do something art related.
I concentrated on art forms that were not so time consuming or bigger projects that could be done in small segments of time.So that time I did a lot of sketching and got interested in artjournalling that gives you a lot of freedom and allows you to experiment with different media.I finished one journal that time,doing some collage ,some sketching and drawing,some stamping,some paper decorating and page designing.I would sketch and draw on stray pieces of paper at work during my breaks and would incorporate my sketches in my art journal pages.I would work on card projects and would try new ideas,I would even write down some recipes for delicious dishes.
Now I spent more time painting and keeping my two blogs up to date.I also spent time on the website of Wet Canvas which is kind of time consuming.But I kind of miss my art journal and I am not going to be surprised if I start another one pretty soon.In the next several posts I am going to show some pages of my art journal.This particular page was created with bits of paper I designed myself with acrylic paints and with stamps I made myself out of school erasers.
