The Meaning of Life: A Mixed-Media Art Journal Page by Guest Artist Kate Crane

July 7th, 2015

Guest Artist Kate Crane 9



Today’s project is by Guest Artist Kate Crane. Please give a warm welcome to her and enjoy her amazing project.

As a fairly prolific and long-term art journaler, I am always looking for new ideas to try out in my journals. However, there are recurring and repeating features that always seem to appear – bright colours, lots and lots of layers, stenciling and stamping!

We Asked the Artists: What is Your Ideal Work Environment?

June 23rd, 2015

We Asked the Artists grid
For creative types, a space for working is often the biggest challenge. Creating the ideal environment for work is not always possible. However, there is usually an atmosphere that we work best in. People with a dedicated work space can come and create whenever the mood strikes them, while others have to accommodate families, noise, or other disturbances.
