Having too much fun !!!

Ok.. here I go telling what I have been up to in my little studio in the snow! I am having so much fun creating hand made and bound Journal,Art Journals and little books to use for gifts. I started doing this because I wanted to create a unique journal to keep my sketches,mixed Media collages and inspiration in. So I dove in and found books on binding your own books. I fell in love from the start. I am an addict I think some might say ! lol ! But I am loving the creating of these little gems. Now I just need to use my Media Art Journal to finish some homework ! lol !!I will get that posted as soon as I complete it. I also have a post on my other blog showing pictures of all the yummy goodies I won from 17turtles and Bo Bunny...Check it out...

And finally here are a few pictures of the journals I have made.

Hugs and blessings... Kristy

My entry for Jan.2011 Sketchbook Challenge

Here is my entry for the January Sketchbook Challenge. The theme for this month is Highly Prized. So of course my family is what I highly prize. I have drawn word art and rather cartoonish faces representing each of my family and I. Marvin is at the top of the F with a Halo. Hanging from the F arare our wedding rings and my Pandora Bracelet. 3 objects I highly prize.

I I don't expect to win any of the awesome prizes. But this is a fun challenge and I look forward to doing each months and posting here and on my healing through art blogspot.

Let the creating begin...

Ok.. the studio is not moving along so fast . With the holidays and not having help to paint and move things upstairs it has just not gotten far at all. So, fo r the moment my studio is from my recliner in my livingroom ! Lol ! I have been missing my muse for so long. I am glad she is returning. I sm also thankful for my friends on Flickr that have inspired me in so many ways. This post is of a Japanese Journal that I have begun. I was inspired by one of my artist friends (Sandy B. at . Thank you Sandy for your email and encouragement) What is a Japanese Journal I hear you asking ! It is an accordian style journal. It has 31 pages all folded up in a hard back cover. It is a Moleskine product and I found them at or I can't remember now ! Oh my ! Lol ! I have only found them in one size and that is 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". The paper is heavier weight and works great with my Sakura pigma pens. No bleed through ,so you can actually do both sides if you so desire. I am posting the first 3 pages. There is a string (the ribbon) that runs through the entire journal. Eventually it will have a story of poem written in it.When that muse hits me ! Lol ! The string was placed first . Then the Zentangle fun began. To learn more about Zentangle visit the creators site at... You may also see my photostream on Flickr at is a picture of the first 3 pages. Enjoy and thank you for joining me in my journey of healing and creating !!
