Hi everyone!

Working in my whimsy houses journal today I go back to my folk art roots!

I'm trying to find all sorts of whimsical houses to paint and came across this image during a google search and decided I would have to paint it!

First though I had to trace it and transfer it on the page as there was no way on this earth I was going to do it justice if I drew it!

Then it was just having so much fun adding colour and detail to it!

ATC Background Play - LIVE STREAM

Hi everyone!

This stream is in two parts because I forgot to change the first stream to PUBLIC so it recorded as a PRIVATE stream. The links to both streams are below:

Part 1
Part 2

The background of my ATC today is based on the visit from Janet, Zandra and Carol (aka cb). They came over to Australia late April and stayed a few weeks and I spent most of the time with them in Brisbane, Melbourne and the Hunter Valley. We had such an awesome time that I had to create something from all the receipts (from the shopping we did) instead of throwing them out. So they are all buried in amongst the ATC background here.

You can watch the full recorded streams by clicking on the links above titled Part 1 and Part 2.

Products used:

Liquitex Professional matte medium

Liquitex Professional gesso

Semco 'caramel' acrylic paint
Donna Downey 'bubbles' stencil

Repurposed Journal Flip

Hi everyone!

I can't believe this is only my 3rd journal flip! I've been art journaling for 3 years and I've only finished 3 journals? OK!

Most of the journal pages here have been recorded individually either for a process video on YouTube, a live stream recording on Ustream (these are now no longer available as Ustream has been taken over by IBM and now is not a free service), and maybe one on a YouTube live stream. The pages are all listed below and linked to their relevant recordings (if available).

You can watch this latest journal flip over on my YouTube channel by CLICKING HERE.
