Yaay ! today is the day I share with you my second episode of *Scraps of Life*.

Some notes about what I talked about in this episode:
* The book of Anne-Marie Jobin (in French), Le Journal Créatif.

3M hanging strips
Here is the finish painting I talk about in the last portion of the video:
She turned out good eventually, I am happy I stuck with her instead of giving her a total facelift (she is made of plenty of layers however).
She is looking for a new home to fill with her magick ;) Soon in the shop, but you can contact me if you are interested.M h
Happy Monday !
I am finally sharing with you what I have been wanting to do for months (if not years now): a vlog.
It is not perfect, but I am not perfect. Yes I have an accent. Oh yes, I am a dork :p
I hope you’ll enjoy, and please don’t be shy and tell me what you’d like to see in the next edition, and if you have any question you’d like me to answer, leave a comment below to let me know.
Have fun !:
This is a quick video this week. Sharing how easy it can be to make a spread in your art journal without any crazy supplies.
As I say in the video, I use my art journal as a mirror of who I am at a precise moment (the one I stop everything, step in the Studio, open the journal and do something in it).
You know I love me some new supplies to play. So when Lindy Stamp Gang released their new kind of sprays, I could let it pass. They are in the Flat Fabio line, meaning there is no shimmer in it. However, they are more opaque, so more opaque. I really love experimenting with them and I’m already impatient for new colors in this kind of sprays.
Here is the video, I hope you'll enjoy watching my process:
Here is the supplies I used in this video (the journal is one I made myself years ago):
… 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):
