#ArtLove52 Week 2 Winter Art Journal Page

It's Week 2 in the #ArtLove52 art journal challenge, and the inspiration word for this week is WINTER! I'd say that's quite appropriate, lol.

No Journey Mixed Media Art Journal Page

I have another mixed media art journal to share with you today.  I have been creating in my hand-made art journal a lot lately, I just love the orientation and the size of this one :)

ArtLove52 2018: A Year Long Challenge Series

Are you excited to enter into a new year? I am! I see some wonderful new adventures waiting for me just around the corner! 

I have decided to start a year long personal challenge. I have chosen 52 words and listed them in random order. I will use one of these words each week as an art journal inspiration prompt.

I have created a hashtag to go with this series: #artlove52. I will be adding photos to Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram with this hashtag. If you would like to join me, please do! Add the hashtag #artlove52 to your posts so I can find them!

I would love to add some random #artlove52 creations from other people to my blog posts, so please join in!
Please feel free to save the image above and print it out for yourself!

Art Journal Page Swap with Laura Marek Part 2

Hi everyone, I am back this week to show you the art journal pages that Laura Marek sent me :) Did I tell you that we agreed on 2, yes 2, art journal pages to swap?

Well, let me tell you. Laura didn't send 2 art journal pages...she sent 4! And 5 mixed media tags, AND 5 fully gelli printed deli papers!

Laura's art journal pages combine the use of acrylic paint and magazine clippings with design paper and washi tape. She also paints images on her pages. They are gorgeous!

These gelli prints are absolutely to die for :) Well done Laura, they are so fabulous I don't want to use them! LOL!

And these tags! I am no stranger to mixed media tags, they have been a favorite of mine for a while, as well as ATCs. The small-ness of them and the ability to do a quick project makes them a dream to work with. And Laura's mixed media tags do not disappoint. I shall treasure them.

I have to say a huge thank you to Laura Marek for doing this swap with me. And well, for being much quicker in the mailing department than I am haha. I am terrible for mailing things out, but I PROMISE, they are on their way;)

I am so impressed with the kindness of total strangers in the Facebook group Maremi's Creative Cafe.  I would love to give back somehow, so this is my thought...if you are struggling with mojo or confidence with your art, and you want to try an art swap, let me know!  I would love to help someone gain their confidence or harness their art mojo (mine tends to go on long vacations without me sometimes).  You can contact me on Facebook on my page Ode to Paper, or send me an email at, or even leave me a comment here.  I would be very happy to swap art with you :)

Thank you for stopping by, stay tuned next Thursday for an exciting new series introduction! The series will start in January and will run for the whole year!
