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 :) !

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

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!!!!!! :)

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 :)

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
