Wall of Inspiration with Ann Butler inks

I’m a huge believer in the phrase: “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working” by Pablo Picasso. I feel it almost everyday. I get my best ideas when I’m working, because creating gets the process rolling and sets the mind to follow. So…I decided to create a wall of inspiration. It’ll be a collection of small canvases with phrases and words on different mixed media techniques that I will hang on the wall in front of me and every time I’ll look up I’ll see this burst of inspiration and creativity!

I like adding flowers to boys’ layouts as long as I keep the balance and not add too many. …

Mixed Media Art Journal Page: Follow your Heart

Art journal pages are a form of personal expression and I think they have the power to encourage us, lift us up and inspire us when we need it. I always try to add positive messages or sentences to my pages. today I want you to follow your hearts! It can be in a little thing or a large thing, just listen to it… This page also fits Valentine’s Day although it’s primarily about you and not someone else, but I think loving yourself is just as important! I started the background for this double spread with a tissue paper. Then I added some heart cards from patterned paper that I had in my stash. I wanted the page to have vibrant colors especially red. So I added Inka Gold in esd color all around the page creating a frame. I used a homemade stencil I created from white cardstock to create the hearts pattern with color sprays. To sharpen …
