Creative Flow #5

Hey hey hello!

Man, January is just flying by! For our second Creative Flow Episode this month, I had fun creating with my mini me! (Well ok, she didn’t help me create it but she sure had fun helping me with the voice over!) As you know, or maybe you are new to the Flow, Tiffany and I both created a ‘flowish’  journal stuffed full of goodies and mailed them to each other. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month we upload a video showcasing what we have created using 3 items from the flow we were sent.

Check out my process video below to see what 3 things I chose this week:

If you haven’t already, Be sure to head on over to Tiffany’s Channel and watch her video to see what 3 things she chose to use in her flow!

Crazy Pages!

Hey All!

Well, I’ve embarked on yet another adventure! This one is a crazy one, no really, it IS! It’s the Crazy Pages Collaboration.

Check out my video below and then be sure to check all the rest of the artist’s links below!

“International Art Journal Pages Trade “Crazy Pages”

Twelve pages, Two amazing teams. Each page made with a different shape, design and techniques, painted with incredible backgrounds, are being shipped to different states and countries around the world! 📷🛩 🎨 📓 😁 📹
Once completed, each artist of the two teams will take their 12 pages, which were painted by 12 different people, and then will film or take pictures of them binding the pages into a unique, fun, and amazing Art Journal of Crazy Pages!!
Please be sure to check out my fellow YouTube Artists who are participating in this trade with me. Some will have pictures up on their Instagram Accounts and some will have a video up on YouTube detailing the whole journey. 📷⭐️ “Crazy Pages” was created by and organized by Ayala Art / I Love 2 Paint.

“Own Your Story”

Hello My Artsy Friends!

Can you believe this is week 12?! I’m just giddy with excitement! When I first chose this week’s featured layout (see the post about that HERE), I was under the assumption that it wouldn’t take too terribly long and it would have a gorgeous color payoff.  Well, I was right on both accounts!

‘Courage’

This week’s #inspiby prompt had me thinking from the moment I posted it. I had dreamed up all these visions of what I would like my pages to become. Sometimes, that’s the hardest thing about being an artist. When you envision one thing in your head and it clearly does not turn out how you expected. It can get frustrating, but it’s part of the learning process. Continue reading “‘Courage’”
