A Day at the Museum

Hello everyone :) !!!!!! So this past weekend I had the chance to take a little field trip down to the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Let me just say that I absolutely love, love, love this museum, it's one of my favorite places to go. I had a chance to check out this really cool video installation that was done by the artist soda_jerk(you can up look more info about them just Google soda_jerk), which was entitled After the Rainbow. It depicts various scenes from the movie The Wizard of Oz which stars Judy Garland and other movies that she has done. What I liked about this installation was that it told a story but it was like it was done in Photoshop(if you could understand, lol), that bits and pieces were put together to create this awesome story. I also checked out some other exhibits(sorry I could not take pictures as it was not allowed :( ) and some caught my eye, and some kind of left me like, "what ??", lol ! But in all I had a pretty great time. I also picked up this really great book, which is actually a diary by artist Frida Khalo(which I LOVE her work !!) that I thought looked soooooooo interesting, and it gave me ideas about my own art :) Well that's all for now, much love XOXOXOXO :) !

Quick Canvas Creation

 Hi guys ! I just wanted to doa quick post before I head off to bed of a quick and easy peasy canvas creation that I did over the weekend. It really did not take me that long to do(about 10 minutes) and I loved how it turned out. Bascially for th background I used a couple of sprays here and there of some fabric paint, next I did some stamping using my favorite french writing stamp, after that I did some more stamping using a heart shaped stamp, next I doodled a flower using some black india ink and embelleshed it with some white dots on the petals, next I added some heart shaped cut outs at the bottme, and lastly(whew, lol !!) I added some journaling using my label maker. Sounds like a lot, lol, but really I didn't use that many materials to make it. I just wanted and needed to create something, and this what I came up with. So I hope you enjoy, and I will talk to you next time :) !

For the Love of Sunflowers(another recycled project)

Hi guys !!!! I know its been some weeks snice my last blog post, but I just returned back to school for another(and my final, as I wilbe graduating this December, yayyyyy!!!!!) semester and have been kind of busy. I have managed to create another hanging art journal(which is kind of a late summer art journaling project, lol) which I LOVE how it turned out. I am so in love with sunflowers, and I love their beautiful color, their shape, and how big and bold looking they are. They also make me think of summer, hence this journal was born. As a cute touch I decided to add some butterflies just using a paper punch that I had, and added some journling using my label maker(which I totally love !), and just added some beads in between the "page"s( which are really ice cream lids, which I got this idea from one of my favorite artist Jennibellie :)and also on the ends on the top. Well thats all for now, until next time. Much Love, XOXOXOX

Follow Your Heart

The other day as I was working in my art journal, I had one idea for the page which was going to be a crackle effect that I pickd up from one of my favorite artist. Some where along the line it didn't really work out that way, lol. I did attempt to do the new technique that I learned I guess the page had other ideas of its own, so I did the only thing that I could do.....roll with it. I pretty much did away with the first idea that I had for the page and just let the page go where it wanted to go, and I came out with this two page spread. I titled the spread "Follow your Heart" which I thought was rather appropriate, lol, because sometimes things may not always turn out like you plan them, and you just have to follow your heart and trust in the process. Until next time, muah!!!!!! :)

My Hearts Page

Hello all !!!! So sorry for my absence on blog land. Last month was a crazy and busy one for me, that I didn't have time to post anything let alone create. But that creative voice in my head keep calling me and calling me, and I had to give in to it, lol ! So here you have it ! I basically did like spray ink technique for the page with a little bit of collage for the hearts, which I actually cut the hearts out from a previous project that I did a while back. I just decided to cut them out and stick them on the side(which came out really pretty if I say so myself, lol). Then I took my brand new label maker and just made this little saying to go along with the page, which worked out pretty well with it. I really like how this page turned out, and I love the hearts on the side(good choice Krystal, lol). I did this page in my sektchbook journal which is still a little ways from being complete but I'm getting there slowly ! Well that's all for now, until next time !

                                                 Have a great weekend, muhhhh :) !

New Projects and Art Journal Page

Hi guys !!!!! I know that I have been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but it has been really hectic and crazy with school, taking midterms, and just being plain old tired, lol, that it has been really hard to find the time to post let alone create any art. But now that things have begin to calm down and the fact that I am on spring break now(wohoooooo, lol !!!) now I
can focus more on my art and being creative :) So on that note, I have some new art projects to share with you. First up an art journal page that I created today. There nothing fancy, just some journaling about things I have been feeling and thinking lately. This page was done in my dylusions art journal, which I LOVE working in ! Looks like I have to get another one once this one fills up, lol(which I still have some ways to go before my journal is completely filled, lol). Next up, is a little shadow box that I put together, which is actually a self portrait piece of yours truly, :) This just represents thing that I love which are art, writing, music, fashion, and other things. I really love how this turned out because, I didn't really know where I was going with this piece while I was creating it, lol, so I just kind of went with the flow a little bit and got this. And lastly, this is just a quick easy peasy little mix media canvas that I created. I was also going with the flow on this project as well, not really having a "set" direction on where I wanted it to go, but it still turned out great none of the less :) I actually had this canvas for a while but never could figure out what I wanted to do with it until now, so I did something with it, lol. Well that's all for now, stay tuned because I have got a project that I am super, super, super excited to sharing with you guys, I can hardly wait to get started on it :) Until next time ! Much Love, XOXO

What I've Been Up to Lately.......

Hi guys ! I know its been a few weeks snice my last post, but with school and everything else going on didn't leave me much time to post anything. Now I have a little bit of down time(finally, lol !) I can do a quick blog post on just some projects that I have created latley, when I had the time that is, lol ! After creating my first hanging art journal project, I decided to create another one, this time its a poetry hanging art journal. I pretty much did the same technique and prep work as the first one and it turned out just as good as the first one did :) ! The second project is a little mini journal page that I did just for the hell of it, lol. Just a journal page, which is more of a free style poetry type motif, descrbing how I was feeling on a particular day. I actually created this page using one side of a fruit snack box that I just cut off and glued to a peice of watercolor paper for add support(the box was kind of thin). Both of these projects for the words I used the Tim Hotlz word stickers, which I have fell in LOVE with and use in pretty much all of my journaling projects, I mean the stickers are the bomb, lol !!!!! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I shall see you guys later and have a great weekend, muahhhh :) !!!!! Much Love, Artsy Chica :)

Triptych Layout Journaling

 Hello creative people :) ! I just wanted to do a quick post on this triptych layout journaling that I did, just  quick little something to satisfy my creative craving, lol. This was actually my first time ever doing something in this style and I must say it turned out pretty darn good. I think I may play a little more with this style in the future and see what other pretty cute pages I come up with, lol. Until next time :)

Hi everyone :) ! I am super, super, super excited about this project(if your couldn't tell already, lol !). Look how I tunred two ordinary ice cream lids into this.......ta da !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its an art journal that hangs on the wall and this is also my very first ever recycled art project that I have done(yay!!!!!!). This project was inspired by one of my favorite artist by the name of Jennibellie, who I saw on her youtube channel that she created a wall art journal out of  round cheese boxes. I figured what if I tried this on ice cream container lids using the same techniques that she did, and this is the result. The lids are about two of the most important things that are apart of me, and that is poetry and art. I love the way they turned out, and feel so proud of myself that I step out and tried something different :) Well that's all for now, take care : ) !

New Art Journal Pages(two spread!!!)

   Hi guys ! I just wanted to do a quick little post before I head off to bed because I am not feeling too well(terrible sinus headache, uggg !) I did these pages a few days ago, just having some fun and experimenting a little with magazine images and words and came up with these two lovely pages ! This about my second time using magazine images in my journaling and so far I have to say that I love it !!!!!!! :) The page on the left I may go back do some journaling around it, I am thinking of making up a little story or just do some random journaling, we'll see :) The secomd page I may do some jounaling inside the hearts(how cool would that look, lol !) and maybe randomly around the page. I am working on some ideas for a new journaling project that I am doing for next month, in the spirit of Valentines's Day ( I am going to have a heart coma once I am done with it, lol !!!!!) so stay tuned for that ! Well that's all for now, I am off to bed now to rest my aching head. Much Love, XOXO

Some Art Journal Play :) !!!!!!!!

I am very, very, very, very, excited to share with you these art journal pages :)!!!!!!!! I have been just a busy little bee having fun, playing, and experimenting in my art jounrnal. I used gelatos(which are like the best thing in the world, I swear, lol !) and fabric spray paint, with a little stamping, and collage. I decided to step a little out of my comfort zone and take a stab at experimenting with magazine images, which I have to say adds some intersting spice to my journal pages. I love how the spray paint just blends in so beautifully with the gelatos, it makes the pages looks so yummy, lol ! I think I am going to continue to experiment a little more with this technique to see where it takes me. So in the mean time be on the look out for more yummy art journal pages, until then, much love :) XOXOX
