Hi there! I just wanted to share a bunch of mixed media paintings I did over the last week. I watched an art class from Laura Horn and was super inspired to start my own little series of collages. I used hand painted collage papers together with some stamped images. I used acrylic paint for stamping instead of stamping ink. Click on more to see why…
In today’s video I am creating three spreads in my mini art journals from left over papers. Last weekend I took a class from Laura Horn and made a bunch of collages and now I wanted to get rid of all these paper scraps. The journals I am working in are super cheap sketchbooks. The bigger one is from the Action store, the smaller one is from Gerstaecker. As main images I am using stamps from Sketchy Leaves and Inks Friends.
In today’s process video I am creating an intuitive and relaxing spread in my Moleskin watercolor art journal. I really love these kind of making art to calm down, relax and get my creative juices flowing. The process is purely intuitive and without any pressure. I explore markmaking, mixed media techniques and color palettes while creating the page. I also used a few stamps to add more interest. Click on more to watch the process video.
In today’s video I am creating a mixed media art journal page in my watercolor journal from Kunst & Papier. I’m making a collage background first and add color with the water-soluble Neocolor crayons. For my main images I am using my Textured Birds stamp set together with a gelli print.

I made a vintage art journal spread with a collage on the background. I worked in the Kunst & Papier watercolor journal. The papers are handmade and also from a design paper pad. The one with the flowers in an old book page I painted myself with watercolors. As a focal image I added one of the Grungy Butterflies stamps. Click on more to watch a quick video.
I’m creating a spreads today in my cheap sketchpad from Action. I often do this when I want to get rid of my left over collage scraps. I am glueing the papers down intuitively and add different mark makings on top with stamps, crayons and posca markers. If you want to see how I make my collage papers I have the playlist with all the videos linked in the post
I made some mixed media altered playing cards with a collage background. I inked some tissue with Brusho powders. After the tissue was dry I used it for this background. You will find a quick video on how I made this when you click more. The leaves are from my Sketchy Leaves stamp set, the mushrooms are from Textured Mushrooms.
I’m sharing the making some grungy mixed media tags today over on my YouTube channel. I had so much fun to create them. To create textured I stamped the background with gesso, that creates a nice effect when you go on top with watercolors. Click on more if you want to see the video and also close-up images of my finished tags.
