Hoping for spring!


Materials: Magenta Stamps and cork sticker, Liquitex Gel Medium, book paper, Clearsnap inks, Canuck Crafts Spectrum Noir coloured pencils, Charcoal pencil

I did this little art journal page to give myself a little bit of spring. I don’t think I am the only person who is ready for birds singing and sun shining!


I started by using matt gel medium to attach these images over my background. I really like colouring over the gel medium with these Spectrum Noir pencils. They are so smooth and silky and blend beautifully.

Happy Spring!

    Hi Christy, First I have to say you are the most amazing artist I have seen !!!!
    I have not yet attempted a large canvas art piece, but would really like to attempt one. The question I have is, ‘what do you use to make the ‘bubbles’ (circles) that I see on many of your pieces?
    Also, do you happen to have a brief write up on how to begin such a piece?
