Whimsical animal art journaling!

This background sat around untouched for a while ... I couldn't think what I wanted to add to it but then I had the urge to paint a rabbit!

Usually whatever I'm playing about with in my art journal makes its way into my regular art journaling class at Art from the Heart (UK). We began by sketching a few whimsical designs before trying them out on tags:

And then we moved onto a larger scale in our art journals. Here's the finished results. Fab!

And I just wanted to share my latest pen find with you all ... Ooh, I love a new pen :-) This one is a Molotow paint pen with a brush tip, which takes the pain out of brush script writing on your journal pages. What a find!

And finally, the latest classes at Art from the Heart (UK) are now up on the website, so go and take a peek! Have a look *HERE* for all the details.

  1. Sigh. These images take me to an enchanted land! I love the color and joy!

  2. Ohh Kathryn, I just love everything that you do, it's all so appealing to me and I would so love to take a class sometime!!

  3. Stunning Tags, wish i had the confidence to draw like this! Such fantastic inspiration :-) xxx

  4. Wish I could attend one of your classes but I'm making do with Journal Soup!

  5. Love that journal page and those AWESOME tags! So much fun! :)

  6. Oh I love the wabbit!!
    Kate- so this is really a wonderful pen? Goes over? and does it come in white? Inquiry minds need to know! xo

    1. It's a good pen for brush-script style writing because it's just like writing with a paintbrush. I tried it over acrylic paint (see big rabbit page!) and it worked fine. I noticed it came in other colours but not sure about white ... ?


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
