A NEW Art Journaling VIDEO!!!

I uploaded this a few days ago, but I’ve been feeling poorly, so haven’t blogged about it yet.  This is my final video in this series inspired by Shannon Green’s challenge.  Even if you haven’t seen my previous videos, you may enjoy watching me complete 20 pages in my Dylusions art journal.  I even do a flip-through of the completed pages.

Thank you SO much for stopping by!  As always, I would love it if you left a comment.  🙂

Art Journaling by 5s – Part 5a – VIDEO!

I Made a Faux Midori! Video

I have been pining over the Midori Traveler’s Journal.  I would like a multi-function book to use as a daytimer, art journal, and general notes.  The Midori would fit that bill perfectly.  The problem?  It’s WAY overpriced (in my opinion).  So, I made my own!  I started with a 25-year old leather skirt that I cut up to make the cover.  The problem with the soft leather – it’s way too soft.  So, I painted a piece of sticky-back canvas, and stuck it to the back.  Works like a charm!  So, here ya go – my faux Midori – Kimdori!  🙂

Washi Tape Christmas Cards – Video Tutorial

Hello my friends!  Are you ready for Christmas?  I am so far behind.  LOL  But, I have managaed to make quite a few Christmas cards.  Now I just need to get them into the mail.   I had a request for a video tutorial for a (non-tennis themed) Christmas card.  First, here are a few stills:

More Pan Pastels and a Video too

Hello my friends!  I am continuing to enjoy working with Pan Pastels.  I am doing a series of beach-themed pieces.  Here are my two latest – they are on pastel paper.  I have entered the second one in the Pan Pastel challenge over at the  Pan Pastels UK Challenge Blog.  This week’s challenge – anything goes!



I decided that I could/should turn on my video camera so that I can share my no-draw approach to painting with pastels, as taught to me by the fabulous Donna Downey.  🙂

She Loved Orange – An Art Journaling Video

Book Winner and a New Video

Hellooooooooooooooo my friends!  Just a quick post today, to announce the winner of my “techniques book”.  There were 12 comments, so I used the random number generator to pick a winner.


The winner is Lucky #7! – Tricia!


Thank you so much for playing along, Tricia.  Your fingers were lucky!  🙂  Send me  an email (link in my sidebar) – and I will get your book out to you!

I also have a new video to share.  I was inspired by an article in the September/October issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine, written by Jodi Ohl.  This technique uses Silks Acrylic Glazes on Ampersand Claybord, heated with a heavy-duty heat gun until it bubbles!  So cool looking!  I had so much fun making them.  And, I have some ideas about what I’m going to use them for, too.  😉

Here are some stills:
