Late Night Art Journaling

"Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time."
~ Deborah Chaskin

Materials used: fabric, paper, metal, embroidery floss, lace trimmings

Note: all photos were taken under artificial light, so the colors are a bit skewed. I just couldn't wait to share!

When Stephen's asleep, I get busy at my craft table. Inspiration doesn't happen all the time but when it does, it's usually between 9 p.m. to midnight. Tonight my muse stirred me to do some late night art journaling!

Birches are appearing in my dreams again. I love using analogous watercolor to capture a simple row of trees.

Materials used: watercolor, fluid acrylics, french text, gel medium, gouache, glitter

 Sometimes I don't write anything down on my journal spreads but I feel that I'm still telling a story through the images I paint. A forest landscape, a bird's nest, a butterfly, trees, leaves, wings......these are powerful, personal symbols.

Une publication qui me plaît beaucoup... J'aime la naissance de ce merveilleux papillon... J'aime ces notes poétiques.
Vos couleurs sont un véritable feu d'artifice... même si elles ne sont pas ce que vous voudriez avec le rendu photographique.
gros bisous à vous
