Customized gift cards are very popular online as they take card designs and make them personal to the receiver.  It helps you feel like you’re giving something you had a hand in making.  Going one step further there’s nothing better than giving a handmade gift and here art journaling excels because it provides the opportunity to be really creative knowing you will bring a smile to someone’s face.

Creativity Requires Courage

This journal page was inspired by the quote
Creativity requires the Courage to let go of Certainty
I think this is never more evident than in the layering process in art so I made this page with layers, letting go of each by adding the next. It’s so easy to get attached to a layer that’s been added, especially when it’s full of colour and serendipitous texture.

From Inspiration to Celebration

Today I want to share some of my creative process, not just the part where I actually make something but the background to it. All the ideas we get come from somewhere: the environment, plants, animals, political issues, internal landscape, hopes and dreams. For some time I have been particularly inspired by plants, especially flowers – I adore the colour and delicate form. I think I love butterflies for the same reason.
