Well, recently I have been getting very interested in improving my blog, adding content and developing the overall approach I have. With this in mind, I have been learning about web technologies, web design and teaching myself how a website works. I have even got to grips with code like HTML and this has made me really pleased!
While I will continue with my blog, I have started a new website too which I am still working on in terms of ideas and structure. It will be linked to this blog but maybe more focused around my art and art therapy. It is still very basic but the link is here if anyone wants to check it out: https://cherryblossomtears.squarespace.com
I’ve dedicated so much time to my mixed media projects recently that my art journaling got kind of neglected. If only there were more hours in the day! And these didn’t get filled up with chores, work, travelling, sleeping…. Anyway, I’ve started working in my new smaller art journal, which is really cute and also gives a different perspective to creating something on a page.
Here, I used Dylusions sprays in red, orange and yellow, then stamped over when it was dry with a few different stamps. I then used my favourite paint pens to create a detailed and textured doodle. It took me a few hours but I really like the end piece
My first page in my new small Dylusions journal!
This is a something I made recently for my sister’s birthday. I had the theme of ‘shabby chic’ in mind as that is something she likes. It was lots of fun to make, although I would like to find a better way to prep chipboard as it did warp a little.
