Peace

At our last art journaling club, we were playing with textures: acrylic modeling paste, textures gels, dimensional paints, etc. I love texture but for some reason, I rarely put a lot of it in my art journals. I guess I don’t like having too many bulky pages. This page was started during our club and I finished it a few days later at home. I drew/painted the face without even thinking too much about it. She’s far from being perfect but then again, no one’s perfect! I love how she came out and I love the colours on the page. … Continue reading Peace

Gift bag journal – Journal sac cadeau

It feels good to be back! I spent part of yesterday creating little things and slowly clearing my war zone, I mean, my studio. There is a lot of work ahead but if I do a little bit every day, it will get done and I won’t get overwhelmed. The journal above is one of the things I made last night. I loved the image on the gift bag so I decided to repurpose it. I removed the bottom of the bag and the very top where the holes for the handles were. I then removed one side and folded … Continue reading Gift bag journal – Journal sac cadeau

Inside my summer journal 7 – Dans mon journal estival 7

It’s been a while since I’ve shown you pages in my summer journal. I’ve decided to use the full pages for more than one day and so, I am continuing my journal until September 23rd. I will have another update for you this week. Ça fait un moment que je ne vous ai pas montré de pages dans mon journal estival. J’ai décidé de prendre les pages pleines pour plus d’une journée et ainsi, je continue mon journal jusqu’au 23 Septembre. J’aurai une autre mise à jour pour vous cette semaine.

Inside my summer journal 6 – Dans mon journal estival 6

Only two weeks left for my Summer Adventure Journal. I will finish it on the last day of August. Technically my summer will end next week when I go back to work but I have enough pages to go until the end of the month. And I don’t think my “summer adventures” will end just because I start working again. In fact, now that I have a cool vintage bike (as of last night), I’m hoping for new adventures. And I’ll share them with you of course! Il ne reste que deux semaines pour mon Journal Estival d’Aventure. Je le … Continue reading Inside my summer journal 6 – Dans mon journal estival 6

Inside my summer journal 5 – Dans mon journal estival 5

More pages in my summer journal. The last 3 are from after the trip but since I was still jet-lagged, I think they still count as part of the trip! The last page seen here is a vellum envelop and inside, I put a postcard that my mother sent me from Barcelona… while we were there together! I love when she surprises me like that! Plus de pages de mon journal estival. Les 3 dernières sont des jours après le voyage mais comme je souffrais encore de décalage horaire, je pense qu’elles peuvent compter comme faisant partie du voyage! La … Continue reading Inside my summer journal 5 – Dans mon journal estival 5

Here are the pages done from July 10th to the 17th, again with limited supplies. I added a lot of tickets and tags to these pages and mostly wrote about the main events of the day, mostly in french.

Art journal for my mother – Journal artistique pour ma mère

My mother has started playing in art journals these past few months. She asked me to create a double journal so she could use it to do “likes” and “dislikes” pages. The photo is not the best but you get an idea of what it looks like. The pages are 8,5″ x 5,5″ and the whole book measures 9″ x 12″. Ma mère a commencé a jouer dans des journaux artistiques ces derniers mois. Elle m’a demandé de lui faire un journal double pour qu’elle puisse faire des pages “j’aime” et “j’aime pas”. La photo n’est pas super mais ça … Continue reading Art journal for my mother – Journal artistique pour ma mère
