Finished Spread: "Making Shadows"

I have a certain love for hanging lanterns. Honestly, all party supplies stir something inside me that just gets me in a good mood, whether it be streamers, balloons...presents. I have a bad habit of leaving decorations up far beyond a reasonable time frame, and in fact, have a string of green paper lanterns dangling from the ceiling in my studio.

Finished Spread: Creatures

After months of thinking, "Should I, shouldn't I?" Roxanne released her second solo online class, Lyrical, and began selling the two as a package deal; I finally broke down and spent the cash. When it comes to the new dual course from Coble, I have only taken the time to sit down and work while watching the set of Creatures videos.

Finished Spread "Internal Tide"

I've had a gorgeous mess of dried Bombay India ink sitting in my journal for five days, waiting to be transformed from colorful anarchy to repurposed chaos; today, I obliged. Working with the India ink was a lot different that my usual acrylics. The thin ink moved more freely than what I'm used to, creating organic shapes and colors, whereas my usual paint needs more guidance.

Finished Spread: Printed Reminder

I still have the illness, but apparently that's good for my creativity as I have created a new spread from start to finish in a day! I love everything about this spread, except that it's in my private journal, which means that I won't be sharing with anyone in person. Luckily for you, I can show it off online!

Finished Spread: Vocals

I have finally completed the art journal spread seen as a work in progress in this post: WIP: Orange & Blue Background. It's not everyday that I feel comfortable with a spread and I can call it finished, but happy day, this one is done!

A Trip to the Museum

he huge rooms were a pleasure to wander through. The CMOA has both permanent exhibits, as well as traveling ones. This time around, one of the exhibits that filled their temporary rooms was an amazing setup of barbed wire.
