… to Darkness.
Life is made of bright and dark. And I made a promise to myself to never let the dark experiences and feelings take over me for too long anymore.
How do I process them ? I acknowledge, first, that yes they are here, because I learned the hard way that ignoring them only makes it worst.
Then, I find a way to let them go. It sounds easier than it actually is for me, to be honest. But this is when my art journal comes as a life saver, for my sanity and for the well-being of those who live with me.
Here is the video for you to enjoy:
Here is the list of the supplies I used for this spread:
This week, I decided to come back in my journal and put stamps as the heroes of my spread.
I love using Mindy’s girl stamp when I feel lazy and really appreciate the fact that is usually is a starting point for me to then «Nixie-fy» as I feel.
Here is the video, I hope you will enjoy it (please if you have any comment or question, don’t be shy !):
This Nixie seemed a little sad, I felt like she needed a companion she could lean on, to help her bear her heavy heart. I can’t tell you what kind of animal this Sprixie is, I let you decided.
Look at the amazing shimmer that the Magical Micas are bringing to her hair and face. I simple love it !
I love using embossing powders, fell in love with them all over again. And I just wish this constellation stamp was slightly bigger, but I enjoy it anyway !
Not all the products are here, but you can see the supply I played with for this spread (click to be redirected to a detailed page):
Cultivate the Happy is something I really want to focus on from now on. It may seem obvious to some but this is new to me. Because of the person I used to be, and the fact that some patterns are very sticky and tend to come back now and then (especially when you don’t want to, you know).
AVAILABLE: original painting for sale in the shop (prints will be made once the original has a new home)
I do believe that Happiness is a matter of everyday choices, the sum of them.
This Sprixie is well aware of the abundance of Chaos around, and sometimes inside himself too, but decided to be Happy anyway. Some people call him naïve, but he does not care because this is not his Truth and he knows better than caring too much for what they think and say about him anyway.
I hope you’ll enjoy this video:

I am SO happy to have a new video for you this week. I hope to finally be back on my week video schedule (with some twists and turns here and there).
This painting was actually by our February project over Wild Surrender, my darling Mindy Lacefield’s 6-month long class. Our theme is sailing :) I also was inspired by talks I had recently with young adult books author Heidi R. Kling about Mermaids (anyone out there watched the show H2O and its sequel-ish Mako Mermaids ? yup).
I wanted to keep their faces and features simple, as if the child I was drew them *I thought I should share that fact before you think it actually was from one of my girl*.
One belongs to the Land, one belongs to the Sea, but together they are Magic makers.
If you want a list of the art supplies I used, please just ask and I will create one that I’ll add as I usually do (I did not, for once, to be sure this blogpost will be ready as planned).
Here are some closer shots:
NOTE: this painting is looking for a new home :) You can find it in the shop.
Hey guys !
Today I am sharing a new video tutorial over Lindy Stamp Gang.
I got inspired by Valentine’s day approaching and my commitment to show the people I love how I care about them. Because after all, I refuse to see this day as focused only on sentimental love.
Head over the LSG blog, to read my step by step.
Here is my video:
I hope you enjoyed :)
