Mixed media Mindfulfulness Canvas

My friend recently won a weekend meditation retreat in a raffle and she very kindly donated her prize to me.  So, to say thank you, I have created her this mixed media canvas with my favourite Mindfulness quote.

Mini Me Art Journal Page

I was having a tough time a few months back when I really wasn’t feeling myself.  I felt like I didn’t know where I was going in life, so created this art journal page to try to get back in touch with who I am and where i’m going.

To create this page I recycled an old greeting card, which was primed with Gesso and then painted in Acrylic. This page has an altered matchbox with a ‘mini me’ on top and a drawer which pulls out to reveal little cards inside. I plan to create tiny pieces of art on these which will describe who I am as a person.

I love how art journaling encourages you to try out new ideas. There is some amazing altered matchbox art over the Internet, which really inspired me. I just have so many ideas buzzing around my head, but I don’t have enough time to bring them all to life.
