Sharing secrets and giveaways

In honor of her new website and 1 year anniversary of BIG the lovely Ms. Connie Hozvica is hosting a giveaway. So because I adore Ms. Connie and because we all love a good giveaway here are a few of my art journaling secrets.

Secret no. 1: Bubble wrap and paint gives the most amazing backgrounds and texture to your art journal pages. I love adding these bubble wrap circles because I find that they offer such and amazing look to the page. There’s something about the simultaneous order and randomness that does it.

Secret no. 2: When all else fails and you have no inspiration – do inchies! They are fun and they don’t need to be anything.

Secret no. 3: 10 minute journaling! Set your timer for 10 minutes and complete a journal page in that time. The deadline keeps you focused, and it’s amazing how much you can do in just 10 minutes. Add to that, we can all generally fit 10 minutes of art into our day.



  1. Great secrets! I especially love the 10 min one… i think it forces you to make quick decisions.. just get something down without thinking too much about it!

  2. Thanks guys! And do try the 10 min journaling, it’s a great way to finish pages and I find when I do it that 10 mins is a lot longer than you think 🙂
