What secrets does the moon know? Maybe they’re written in her personal journal. This is Moon Magic.
The Grove Keepers Journal – is the result of using some of those delicious hand dyed and stencilled papers from last months creative prep.
Using a favourite urban fantasy fiction series by author, Katherine Genet as my inspiration for this project, I imagined the type of journal a Druid priestess in chargeof her sacred grove might use. Here is the results.
I’ve been spending my time in the studio lately dying and stencilling paper for future journals. I think it’s time to put the results to good use.
This is Spell Caster and it’s going to it’s forever home tomorrow. I am always a little curious (and a bit anxious) to see what the reaction will be from the recipient when they open it up for the first first time.
Every once in a while I spot something that sparks my curiosity. This little kit of a study corner did just that. While I thoroughly enjoyed the distraction from my usual creative work, once this little miniature vignette was completed, I found that my curiosity has been satiated. Time to get refocused and back to my own art.
I created this journal for my dear friend Krish in celebration of his 50th birthday today. It incorporates the hand dyed papers and gel plate prints from Mar.27th to April 14th studio posts as seen below. The journal is called Into The Wild. Enjoy the video flip through.
Free styling today with some awesome digital prints from My Front Porch on Etsy. Lots of fun to make something quick and just to be creative.
Finishing up with some stencilling on my green hand-dyed paper today. Journal is taking shape. Should be complete next week and ready for a big reveal.
Paper dying day. Starting a new journal for a dear friend’s birthday. Shhhh! It’s a secret. Note to self: Wear rubber gloves next time.
Gel printing funday Sunday. Sometimes you just have bring out the paints and inks and play.
I downloaded some journal paper printables from AMB Illustrations on Etsy to match some plain paper I had on hand. I thought for sure I knew what tone of purple my paper was but failed miserably. The moral of the story is, when in doubt, make another journal.
One more page completed in the latest journal that I’m working on.
Starting a new journal today. Mostly teal in colour but black and tea dyed paper as well. Thinking about calling it: Teal The End Of Time.
Here are some images of my sister and I playing and making felted bowls. Who knew fiber from sheep could end up as really cool vessels.
Choosing colours, adding soapy water and agitating the first layer using bubble wrap over a circle resist template.
Folding over edges of first layer.
More fun layers to felt in.
Cutting a hole to remove circle resist template.
