Time lapse video: Art journal 2011-2012 (+ 2015 preview!)

I decided to reupload the video of my art journal from 2011-2012. The previous one was kinda dark and the music didn't fit very well. That's why I agreed with some friends to start a collaboration for these video's and here's the first one!

Music by my wonderful friend Jacqueline with her project Helisir. Isn't she wonderful?

 About the preview: this art journal is not finished yet, I just wanted to give you a sneak peek for now ^^. Some pages are inspired by tutorials...and it's very much possible you have seen a few of them before, since I share most (but not all) of my spreads at social media.
- One spread is inspired by Miss Petra
- Other spreads are inspired by Lifebook.

Thanks for watching and let me know what you think! :)

[Bloom True] The first week.

Some of you may know I'll be moving soon. Yet I've decided to follow the E-course Bloom True by Flora Bowley. She's one of my favorite painters and I'm so honored to learn from her. The only struggle I have is the fact I'm busy with packing boxes, one of these weeks the DIY projects will start in my new home... so eh, the timing doesn't seem very perfect, is it?

So I decided to start in an art journal. That went well. But seeing everyone's huge canvasses in the FB group... it was very tempting. After a few days I gave in.

I joined the group on working big. Since I don't have much space indoors (with all the boxes etc), I'm painting in the garden. The weather has been very nice the last few days, so I had time to catch up.

Here I continue working on the big canvas. It's 1m x 1m (or 39" x 39"). It's not huge but still my biggest canvas I've worked on so far. Yes, it's scares me a little but I guess that's part of the process.

And that's how the end of the week looks. 1 canvas, one art journal spread, one A4 page. I can't wait to continue painting. Luckily there are some prompts and exercises left I can work on these days.

Care to join me? You can still sign up here.

If you are a Bloomer, feel free to share your process in a link below.

Have a wonderful week!

[Art journal] Hope

“Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul 
And sings the tune without the words 
And never stops at all.”
(- Emily Dickinson)

This spread is inspired by Juliette Crane's Lifebook lesson. (Read more about Lifebook here:

[Art journal] Atlantis

She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.
