Art Journal Page - My Angel

Welcome to my blog & happy holidays to all!
I wish you are having a really great time as a totaly new year is about to come!

Today, I have a special art journal page to share with you, "my angel"! "My angel" is the result of an exiting free course that a have taken, called "Art, Heart & Healing" which is offered by the amazing Tamara Laporte! Tam is one of the most talented and kind people I've ever met through the internet and I'm so glad that I have found her. Art, Heart & Healing is a GREAT course that really helped me to open my mind and heart to art and its healing part and, as I'm quite new to it, to develop my skils a little bit more. You can find Tamara's art here and all the information about the Art, Heart & Healing free course right here.

"My angel" expresses a healing & helpful power that reminds me of what I really need to be happy and, most importantly, to be open to receive it!

Here is a closer look on my angel's face...At last, I've managed to draw and paint a face that I really like! I know it is not perfect but I like it...!!!

The wings feathers were initially sketched with a pencil and then they were covered with modeling paste (using a size 5 rounded brush) which gave them a great texture.

The texts were written with a white Sharpie pen and for the angel's halo and the shimmering dress (which really doesn't show in the photos but is in real view) I've used a metal pearlescent acrylic paint.

I hope you like it! I'll be happy to get your comments. 

Wish you all a

Ready to GO! - Photo Album 2 - Reddish and beige

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

Finally, all my crafting posts are moved from my previous blog & we are


So today, as I have promised in my earlier post, I have another new handmade photo album to share with you! This album has totally different colours from my previous one, but the making technique is exactly the same. You can find my previous photo album post here. And, you can find the instructions for making such an album in the video here, from the amazing Jen of Eve.

This time, I have choosen a paper with a sentiment for the cover page, as this album is made to be a gift! Also, I have embellished it with small pearl gems instead of using a ribon.

This is the back cover page...

Here is the inner front cover page. You can see some photos already placed in the pockets, they fit perfectly!

And this is the inner back cover page, with some empty pockets showing.

Finally, this is the spine where I have used two golden eyelets for the holes, and the ribbons, holding the pocket pages, are tied into one beautful bow. The paper that covers the spine is again hand painted with acrylics, to match the colours of the covers.

I believe it is a great gift idea, a beautiful and easy to make handmade present! 
You can even give it to your parents with your photos in it, as is my case here, and then it is a double gift for them!

I hope you like it & that you will try it yourself! 

Thank you for visiting, be well and be creative!
