Art journal tutorial ”Light as a Feather” (Studio Time 25)

by | Blog - Tutorials | 6 comments

Feeling as light as a feather…

Well… Not exactly, but I want to!!!

I ate a TON of chocolate for Easter and even bought Easter chocolates on special because they tasted so good…
And, my head has been ready to implode lately because of quite a bit of stress while trying to sell our house and buy a new one… Thankfully, ours has sold and we have a lovely new one to go to so no more stress required, thank you very much 🙂

It’s all positive (apart from the 16 extra kilos I shouldn’t be carrying on my body) and I WANT to feel as light as a feather, at least mentally 🙂

So, let’s take a deep breath, spread some paint around in our journals and add some gently floating feathers to remind us to just chiiiillll…. a little hahaha

Try it out for yourself and let me know with a comment below what you think!

Love to you my Creative Friend,

  1. I am enjoying your tutorials and am so glad to have found you! I imagine I will buy your book or take your video classes. I feel obligated to make a comment about spreading paint with your fingers. I do this too, and prefer it to brushes. However, some paints are made of materials that are poisonous. Any paints containing cadmium or cobalt are toxic. I believe there there is another mineral that is also bad to get on your skin or to ingest, but I can’t remember what it is. But the toxic paints are the ones still made from natural minerals/clays. Not all of them are toxic as far as I know – just some.

      Thank you for your lovely feedback Jan, thank you. I am aware of the potential harm however after researching this matter a while back, I found many articles saying the risk of harm is very very small in the art world and only ‘pure’ cadmium paints can be harmful. I use cadmium ”hues” which are meant to be even less harmful. However in doubt we should definitely wear gloves or barrier cream so thank you for your concern!

  2. If stress produces such wonderful results, then I should be able to do something beautiful like you did! LOL Fantastic, as usual and move into your new home and create some great memories!
