A few peeks into my journal ...

My art journaling time has been pretty slim lately. But I love doing it and so I try to put down my thoughts and experiment with different mediums whenever I can. Here are a few peeks ...

My journal ...

has covers now! Unbelievable. My journal didn't have covers for a whole year. I had so many ideas. But, I guess, I had no real incentive to make any.

Early this year I took an e-course by the lovely Jeanne Oliver: Creatively Made.
Her art finally inspired me to create my truly needed journal covers. I love when creativity meets practicality!

So here they are:


This side of the cover has a pocket - 
in which I have collected a few phrases.

The back still needs some words. 
I have not decided what it should be.

Valentines' Card

Okay, I'm sure it's to no ones' surprise that I'm behind ... in everything. So much to share, so little time to blog. But I thought this one is really cute to share: my Valentine's card for my parents. Like most of my cards, they are a greeting and a little family update in pictures.

I love making cards and mini-books. I wish I had more time to make them :)

Boy's clothing

I love buying clothes. Girls clothes to be exact. Boys clothes? Hm, not so much. Sometimes I find fun stuff, but now that my boy is 5 and close to the end of, I guess, toddler clothing, boys clothes look too much like teenage clothing or men clothing. What's up with that?

So when I found this book: Sukie Iron Ons, I was delighted!

Initially I was a little nervous, but it turns out that the pictures are really easy to iron on. It took a little practicing on a cheap T-Shirt to figure out exactly how long it would take to iron and how much pressure I needed to put on. Well it turns out it took quite a few minutes and a lot of pressure!

Here is my first T-Shirt ...

Forgive his sheepish grin. He didn't really want to be on camera. And as you can see fifteen seconds later I needed to bribe him with food :-/

I'm thinking I might put a few iron ons on a button down shirt as well. Bags. Girl shirt. Lots of stuff ... =)
