This week I made a little ornament thing. I thought I could use it as a postcard. Then a coaster. Not sure what it is but I loved the process of making it.


I started a new journal. It is bigger than my previous ones, 17 x 25 cm from a lovely Italian brand Leonardo Communications. It is beautiful with very thick paper. It is a little bit awkward to work in it yet. So this week I've been playing in it.

3 layers of background here. The paper holds it so well!

This one was inspired by Diary of a Teenage Girl. 70s colours film.

Bits and pieces here.


This is the last page in my square sized journal. I love the format and got used to it.

Triangles and dark background is a favourite combination at the moment.

Intuitive Painting

I started an Intuitive Painting Course by Alena Hennessy 1 Jan 2016. I've been waiting for this course since I got it (half price!). I also have one of Alena's beautiful books The Painting Workshop. I remember starting reading it the minute I got my hands on it. So so excited!

Here is my first exercise in quick painting. I enjoyed it so much. Very relaxing and inspiring too as the words do come to me while painting and the result is pretty quick. I thought of coming back to these to add details but left them as they are.

My word for this year is BRAVE.
