This week’s Inspiring Artist is Nina Ribena! I am so excited to have found her on Youtube. (You know me and my late night binging!) Not only did I fall in love with her vibrant use of colors and new techniques in this layout, but her accent is just as much fun!
I’ve seen greeting card artists using the tissue paper technique but this was the first time that I had witnessed an art journaler using it! Nina also shows us her secrets of making gorgeous butterfly embellishments, it’s like an extra bonus to this week’s Inspiby! Take a peek at her process video below!
How cool was that! Aren’t you pumped to get creating?? Nina is also hosting a Facebook group, ‘Art Journal Prompts’, where they give weekly prompts to get your creative juices flowing to create. You can check out her group here. You can also find Nina on Instagram @nina.ribena.
As always, you can choose to recreate this fabulous layout or use it as inspiration in creating your own journal pages. You have until Sunday midnight to post your challenge pictures on Instagram using the #inspiby tag and also be sure to tag both me (@happilywego) and Karen (@deeillustra) so we can see your beautiful work and follow along with you on your art journey! We welcome artists of all levels to join us. This is just a fun challenge to get you trying new techniques, or revisiting techniques that perhaps you haven’t used in awhile.
*Remember: If you duplicate Nina’s page, please be sure to give her artistic credit!
It is crazy to think how fast these weeks are flying by! I am so excited to be learning yet another new technique and I hope you are too!
