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.

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.

Colorful page in my repurposed magazine junk journal using Dina Wakley Media paints in Lemon, Tangerine, Cheddar, Ruby and Fuchsia, Collage Collective and a water soluble graphite pencil.

At Peace

Derwent Inktense Outliner pencil over Dina Wakley acrylic paints in Lemon and Magenta and gesso on a collage page in my handsewn junk journal. Love how all the edges of the torn pages show through. Makes it look medieval to me.


Twisted Sister

Twisted sister

Titled by hubby ’cause her face is pretty wonky and crooked. Just playing with my Dina Wakley acrylic paints in my handsewn junk journal on this grey, freezing rain yucky day!


Tonight’s pencil sketch on the couch. My husband says she reminds him of Baby from Dirty Dancing. Not my intention, but what do you think?
