Textile Collage

I’ve been creating a lot of collages with scraps of fabric. This is very addictive. Wendy Brightbill class on collage was super inspirational. 

I feel like I want to frame some of these.


TRAVEL JOURNAL

Ok. It’s May 2018. This time I travelled to California for a week. I knew I’d want to draw while travelling but I didn’t want to pack my usual travel kit bag. I went minimal.

1 ballpoint pen
2 gouache paints (neon yelllow, neon pink)
1 flat brush (number 4)
4x6 notebook

I started with sketching places I stayed at. Then I moved to some objects. I quickly got bored with sketching tho. By this time I had a pencil from a hotel. And I found a couple of color pencils as well.
And this is when I started intuitive painting/ sketching.

Later I added a few stickers (free from Brandy Melville) and pages from a free magazine.

I had no idea this would turn out like this and I like it.

You really don’t need a lot if you want to create :)















PAINTING

These are my latest creations.




SEASON OF CONNECTIONS 5


This was influenced by Stranger Things 2 and 80s comics. 


SEASON OF CONNECTIONS WEEKS 3 & 4

These weeks have been going so fast. I've neglected my art time due to a lot of time spent with friends. All of a sudden I feel like I have more people around me, new acquintances, new connections. 

These changes definately influence my art. Every time I sit down in front of my artjournal, I end up being completely carried away with my creative process. I feel like I go deeper in the flow even though I never have any particular idea beforehand. This is truely a micarle for me.

My way of putting art onto paper has changed with time. I don't feel any bounderies to what I can use or not. I mix mediums, I mix ideas, I put layers over layers, I cut and paste. I absolutely love it and it feels like I'm connecting with myself.

I do yoga and meditation regularly as well. I give myself time to relax and not do anything. I think I approach more things with a wabi sabi look on things. Nothing is perfect and there's beauty in this.



COLLABORATION JOURNAL

I was so happy and inspired to create a collab journal with Vanessa. She has such a profound artjournaling style. I've always looked up to her work. Also we are sharing one big love called GLITTER!



SEASON OF CONNECTIONS WEEKS 1 & 2

It's so amazing how many people with the same interest are around me. How the universe attracts them and how much fun it is.

I received a copy of Brush Magazine. This is a magazine created by Tanyalee. She is an Australian artist whose work I saw 2 years ago. Through her work I found out what artjournaling was.

2 years later I submit my own little painting for her magazine.
