Playing in my repurposed magazine journal that I use for mop up of extra paint from other projects. Decided I needed to start using up some of my old paints and scraps in my stash.

Junk Journal Play

Page in my handsewn junk journal. Used Dina Wakley Media Collage Collective, washi tapes and paints. Words are from old book pages.

First Day of Spring

Lynda's Canvas 2

“Where flowers bloom so does hope” – Lady Bird Johnson. Daffodils are my favorite flower and they are just starting to poke through the still frozen ground in the garden closest to the house. The rest of the yard is still inches deep with snow, but I have hope we will soon be seeing green! I created this on a 17″x13″ canvas board gifted to me by a friend. I started with collage, using a bunch of scraps of painted papers in my stash, then layered with acrylic and chalk paints and stencils. Drew and painted my daffodil and girl, then painted over the busy background. I framed it in with Paper Artsy chalk paints through a stencil and smeared a Distress Crayon over the edges. Love all the underlying texture!

Spring Dreams

Spring Dreams. Oil pastel crayons and charcoal pencils over collage.



Paradise. Playing with my Lyra Aquacolor water-soluble crayons and luscious Stamperia Rice Paper Decoupage sheet gifted to me by a dear friend. Of course I had to paint a girl in to enjoy the scene.



Journaling emotions really can be therapeutic. Mechanical pencil, graphite and blending stump.
