art journaling

flower 1 

This year, I gave myself permission to play. Not just creating for a project in mind. It is all about experimenting, enjoying the process and getting some exercise.

Unfortunetaly - or luckily, depending on the occassion - there are so many wonderful paints, stamps, papers and oh so funny stuff available. Thus, I have to limit myself to just the material on hand or my home would soon be better equipped than any craft store. This limitation also helps to get to know my own materials and techniques to use them, which is key.

Sometimes those pages turn out quite unexpected, not having my usual style as I try to get out of my nice little comfort zone. This page here started with some leftover acrylic paint smudged on a page and ended pretty flowery.


  • acrylic paint
  • water colors
  • ink "Leipziger Schwarz"
  • paper scraps
  • stamps, StazOn schwarz, some noname-ink in turquoise
  • Sharpie pen
