Wanderlust Live Day Two

 Hi Everyone.

I have a few more projects from the Wanderlust Live weekend to share today.

First up is a pile of gel-printed collage fodder created with Iris Fritschi-Cussons. 

This was a fun exercise, using printer paper, book pages, tissue, teabags and a brown paper bag, acrylic and watercolour paint, Stabilo Woodys water-soluble crayons, pens and pencils.

Next I created a mixed media tag art journal spread with Arlyna Blanchard.

We created beautiful loose watercolour flowers with Francisca Nunes.

And finally for today, we created space for our inner light with Christine Karpiac.

There are more classes from the weekend I haven't yet done, so watch out for those.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Wanderlust Live Day One

 Hi everyone.

I've been catching up with Everything Art's Wanderlust Live Weekend, a weekend of free arty lessons on YouTube with some of the teachers from Wanderlust 2024, which was launched for registration a couple of weeks ago.

Here is my art from Day One.

Mini Abstracts with Nicki Traikos


Colour Play with Christine Karpiac

Peaceful Pages with Nicole Warrington - These are just watercolour backgrounds at the moment. I may do some journaling on them eventually.

Thanks for visiting.

Have a great weekend,

AJJ - Books, Cats, Tea

 Hello All.

I can't believe I've been back from my holiday nearly a week and I still haven't posted anything.

I made this junk journal page for Elle's Books, Cats, Tea theme at Art Journal Journey on a rainy afternoon while I was on holiday.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more of my 365 Somethings collages.

Thanks for dropping by.
