This year, my guiding word is EXPAND. And it reminds me to keep my heart and my mind wide open. I know opportunities are all around.
I am so blessed to have my art in the latest issue of the ezine Sprout, orchestred by the amazing Amanda Fall. I also am in her beautiful Community Garden, answering some questions.

Hey guys !
I know not all of you are on social media and thought I would share some new paintings that I listed in the shop recently (click on the image to be redirected on its Etsy page. Easy Peasy).
I am going back to it more and more. After more sketching in dedicated sketchbooks, I am now playing again in my art journals (I have two in which I paint at the moment).
(you can watch me create this spread from start to finish on my Youtube channel)
Are you an art journaler too ?
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:
