Grow Journal Page

Hi! Giselle here, with another Art Journal Page. Each page captures a moment or feeling in my life. This year is coming to an end and so many things have changed in the span of only 365 days. Some of the memories are bitter sweet, some are very exciting, even scary. What I know is that I have grown. That is all that we can hope for in life, really. We can hope that tomorrow we’ll be just a little better than today, and...

Cthulhu Journal Page

Hello! Lately, I have been listening to H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast. I only discovered H.P. Lovecraft quite recently, but I really enjoy a lot of his stories. There is a very unique type of horror to his work. I think Lovecraft himself said it best, “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”. He is most famous for creating Cthulhu, an ancient God from...

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today, in the spirit of Halloween and Fall, I am sharing a journal page with you. I have always loved books.

It was hard to get new books in Cuba, where I am from. I was fortunate that my aunt Melba was a librarian. She...

Believe in yourself and SOAR HIGH

Hello again! I am finally back. The past few months have been very hectic. I haven’t had much time to indulge my creativity.

I am still trying to work my forty hours a week, go to school and have a little bit of a life. I might be in denial, not sure if I could keep that up for the full two years. Crazy, right? I am...

Faux Cloisonné Technique Try-out

The first question everybody asked when I started crafting is, “Where did you learn to do that?” My answer is usually, “I learned it watching videos on YouTube.” There is a LOT of very talented people out there that make just gorgeous things. It has become a habit for me to watch a couple of crafting videos every day before bed. There are a lot of videos on the same techniques, usually with a twist. I love to...

Real Love, Life’s Simplest Joys

A lot of people ask me what inspires my journal pages. Often, I do have a reason for a page, usually a loved one or a treasured moment in time. However, a lot of my journal pages are really just because I want to express myself. I got inspired for this one from a perfume my mom got me for my birthday. I just saw the cherry blossom branch on the box and decided to add it to my journal. Here is the finished page: I used acrylics for the...
