Creative Blog Hop

Hello, friends!

This post is a bit different from my previous one. I am member of a great art community called AtcsForAll.com (AFA). There, we make art we are proud of... A friend from AFA keeps a blog (http://amynahproduction.blogspot.com/) invited me to take part on the blog hop and I loved the idea! We can see each other's art and make comments, give support and suggestions...

This blog hop mainly consists of me saying a few words about my art and what I am currently working on and name a few friends an their blogs, so the hop can continue...

I will start by answering a few questions:

What am I currently working on?

Well, I have my hands full with my art journaling! I feel so free to create in a larger scale and express myself in a more open way. Here are few of my pages:

 This journal page has a very special meaning to me. My husband works at from home and spends a long time away from us... "Love always" is an expression he uses a lot when sending me messages.


I was in such good mood when I created this page... I jut wanted to be free to create and decided to make a page about it... I amply love this butterfly... I colored with colored pencils...


I mainly used a freebie print out from Peta  Thompson. She is an artist on another art community I am part of called Krazy Island Family (KIF) on Facebook. She was celebrating get 500 subscribers mark on her YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXP-ZCVYxgLCRw560aWjhrg). The writing is a poem by Margaret Atwood.


I achieved this color effect by using 2 colors of Dylusions ink spays and for the ghosting impression I used gesso to create resist against the spays.


How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I am mainly a collage artist, but I am in the big honing stages of drawing, so I plan to expand my art a little bit. There are a lot of artists out there that does the same thins as me, but we are all unique in our own way. It can a unique lettering or sketching, or even a unique technique.

Why do you make art?

I started with art to help with the daily stress I had to deal with in the beginning of the year... It ended up saving my life in a lot of ways! I love art and plan to keep creating for many years to come...

Now I would like to introduce you to a few blog friends that make awesome art!
As I mentioned before, I am part of a Facebook community called Krazy Island Family. This page is directly connected to Krazy Island Studios (http://krazyislandstudios.com/) runned by Claudia Rossi. She has a great YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ClaudiaRossiStudios/videos)where she shares with us her process to create art. They also offer weekly journaling prompts, which is also very fun!

This next blog is great! Willowing Arts (www.willowing.org) is where Tam offers online classes, some of them free. She is very involved in the healing aspect of art, which I totally agree and appreciate... She has many projects at the moment, but her famous one is LifeBook 2015 (http://www.willowing.org/2014/09/08/life-book-2015-teacher-line-up-blog-hop-and-give-away/). I plan to join them in this journey next year and stretch myself further artistically.

Thanks for reading!
