a few art journal pages...

It is a strange thing. While drawing using ink I'm not able to create my art journal pages using mixed media techniques. That is why some weeks I'm only drawing and some only playing with mixed media techniques. Not sure how my brain works but it is hard to work differently. At least I can crochet and knit whenever I want ;)

Because the big event is coming I needed to take a brush in my hand and try to remember how to do stuff. I created a few art journal pages and changed and add something to old ones. If you would like to see how I work, you will be able to find me on Everything Art stand in NEC Birmingham on Saturday 7th November. Please pop in and say hello! I will be demonstrating mixed media and art journaling techniques. Some of these techniques and exercises I will be showing on my Wanderlust 2016 video in July. 

 Maybe you have already heard about the exciting, inspirational journey in mixed-media and art journaling that I’m teaching on next year? It’s called Wanderlust and it’s a year long online course that includes 50 videos from 26 different teachers.

New stamps

This month Stampotique Originals stamps had a new release. 
Very exiting time for me! More Agathas and her friends. 

This time there are 3 new Agathas - with flower, witch and with antlers, Nina as Frankie, Owl, Reindeer and Agatha's Watering Can. Owl and Watering Can are small and are great also for backgrounds. The same with flower which Agatha holds. There are plenty of ways of using them.
Here and here and here you can see how Samantha Read used my new stamps.
More ideas and inspiration you can find on Stampotique Challenge blog. I love what Stampotique DT is creating with them!
If you created a project with my new or old stamps please, show me!

All the new images you can find on Stampotique website. But they are coming to the UK too! Some of the new images you can find in Crafting Time and Art From The Heart shops already! Check out Craftin Time if you are looking for very popular Agatha's Parrot (be quick only 2 left!). 

My new and old images can be found in these UK shops:

Back to things which I love the most

Time for a next step in my crafty journey. 
After a few years as a DT member of some amazing design teams I decide to change it. In a few weeks time I won't be a member of any design team. You won't find any of my projects on others blogs but I will still create for Craft Stamper - I simply love that magazine!

Feeling? Strange but nice.

 I'm going to spend my time creating what I really love. I'm coming back to mixing my illustration with mixed media techniques. I also will draw, draw and will see a lot of my illustration in a near future!  I have a few projects in mind, can't say anything, not yet. But first thing first, need to prepare myself to sell some original paintings and prints. Teddies will be first...

This project I prepared for a swap. Unfortunately the package is still somewhere between UK and Ireland after more than two weeks from sending. If someone will find it in bushes please give me a shout!
