Weekend update

I had a very rough emotional weekend and I don’t feel like writing a long post today so I’ll keep it short and simple. Friday night, I drew a mandala on a pre-painted background in my art journal. It’s not my best mandala but it’s there nonetheless. Saturday was a quick continuous line drawing because it was late. And finally today, a trio of ATCs, which are available for trade if anyone’s interested. I hope your weekend was quieter than mine! Continue reading Weekend update

A bit of everything

I mentioned this month that I’m participating in a 30 day journal challenge. I think it’s the third time I’m doing it and I find it’s a good habit to develop. This time, I’ve been working in a small art journal in which I had already prepared a myriad of pages in the previous months. So I can focus on answering the prompts for the challenge. I haven’t shared any of the pages until now. This page seemed appropriate to share on my blog so this was my daily art for yesterday. Today, I made a set of ATCs (Artist … Continue reading A bit of everything

A couple of ATCs

It’s been a long and busy week at work. Getting to know all the new students and their parents is hard work but lots of fun too. I seem to have a great group of pre-k and kindergarten students so we should have tons of fun! Today, I have a couple of ATCs to show you: one is for a trade (the cat) and the other is for my journal (the quote). For the cat, I used a Sharpie pen and colored pencils. I also blended the colors with some solvent and a paper stub. For the quote, I painted … Continue reading A couple of ATCs

Daily ATC in February

   I’m having fun this month revisiting a format I hadn’t worked with in quite some time: the artist trading card (ATC). I used to participate in a lot of swaps and trades for ATCs and, later on, chunky book pages. At one point, it just became too much and I stopped. Now, I create for the joy of it and, if someone wants to trade, I’ll do it when I feel like it. I don’t want it to become an obligation or a burden like it was after a while. I want my art making to be a source … Continue reading Daily ATC in February

>Zentangle ATC #9 of 9 – CAÉ zentangle #9 de 9

> I finally completed the last ATC in my full page mosaic. And here are the 9 ATCs assembled: J’ai finalement terminé la dernières CAÉ de ma mosaïque plein page. Et voici les 9 CAÉs assemblées:  I’m really happy with the result. And now, I’m not sure I want to see them go! Maybe I’ll keep just one of them and trade all the others… Je suis vraiment heureuse du résultat. Et maintenant, je ne suis plus certaine de vouloir les voir partir! Peut-être que j’en garderai une et j’échangerai les autres…   Continue reading >Zentangle ATC #9 of 9 – CAÉ zentangle #9 de 9
