Artist Inspired : Juna Biagioni

Hi friends, I hope your week is going well! I, for one am feeling a little overwhelmed BUT in the best way possible! I'm basically bursting at the seams with inspiration! It seems to be coming in at every angle. Each day, I awake a little more excited to begin the day and swim through this sea of creativity - desperately trying to keep my head above water!

I can't seem to learn fast enough or create quickly enough! The days slip by while my head is down, my hand in constant motion. Drawing and creating like a kid with a new box of crayons. It's dizzying, bewildering, exhilarating and yes, at times a bit terrifying! This is how creativity seems to work...at least for me and the best thing I can do is share it right? Spread this crazy energy around before it consumes me!

So today, I am doing just that! I have recently discovered a new artist to me. What a gift when this happens! Her name is Juna Biagioni and her techniques of creating mixed media portraits are...well...enchanting!

This is another gorgeous creation! Don't you love her mark making and use of color! Divine!! [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lh5I25hRQQQ]

Please do go visit Juna and explore her lovely site! She has an online portrait class coming up that you know I will be taking!! She is also a fellow guest teacher with me in the Let's Face It Portrait class as well as the online mixed media workshop - Love Art Happy Life.

What a delight to discover yet another wonderful teacher to keep the creative community flourishing and my own creativity flowing! Thank you Juna for so generously offering these free videos that surely have inspired so many!

I hope you guys enjoy these!

So anyways...today is my birthday and in the theme of celebration, I wanted to give you a special treat! I've made a lovely FREE  Mixed Media Art Journaling Video for you - documenting my creation of the spread below. It's full of teaching and tips to get you creating in your art journal too! Plus, my little studio kitten, Leo makes an appearance. He is quite the art admirer. ;)

I've been exploring Art journaling recently and it's been so enjoyable. What a wonderful way to explore, experiment and play all within my beautiful vintage ledger.
