New Art Prints and Tipins

New prints and art journal cards now listed in the Etsy shop. I tried to select some of the most popular images from my sketchbooks and art projects.

I am still trying to find the best solution for listing these on Etsy. They charge a fee for each listed item, so it gets expensive for me to list all these individually—if you wish to create a different set of 6, please send me a message and we can arrange a custom package for you.

Thank you to the customers that have placed orders already this week. You are awesome! 😊

Month of Hobonichi fruits

Art journaling exotic and familiar fruits

For the month of May, I joined up with a group of Instagram artists to illustrate fruits for each day in our Hobonichi notebooks. Some of these fruits were very new to me, and so I was happy, that along with an artistic prompt benefit, there was an educational perk as well. Now I have several fruits that I am determined to find so I can sample all the delicious qualities that other people have been chatting about on my Instagram feed.

I chose to keep it fairly simple with watercolors, ink, and graphite. And so far, I am happy to say I have kept up with this project. Thirty-one days seems like a more manageable timeline for endurance as compared to the 100 day challenge that admittedly took more tenacity. So… here are my fruity offering so far…

Studio 318 New Art Journal Cards in the shop!

More of my sketchbook images to use in your planners!

Thank you Instagram and Facebook friends who have ordered new art cards this past week. I am so grateful for the enthusiasm you have for these tiny works of art. I can’t wait to see how you use them in your art journals and planners. I currently have 5 different series of art journal cards, or “tip-ins” available in my Etsy shop.

They are professionally printed on 80# glossy (front only) card stock. The colors are very rich–I’m very pleased with the quality, and I’m also ecstatic that I do not have to print them here at the studio. Ya know… painters just wanna paint! Professional printers are a blessing to one-woman shops. 😉

Have a great week everyone!

Hobonichi Art Journal Flip

Patience is the name of the game when uploading videos to YouTube, but due to several requests, I’m giving YouTube another try. Unfortunately, uploading speeds are notoriously slow, at least for me here at home, and the frustration level peaks when dealing with the wait times as the videos process at a snail’s pace.

But it’s there! Finally! The YouTube video has processed. It is just a flip through of my Hobonichi Techo Art Journal so far for 2017 with some commentary on the techniques and supplies that I used. If there are any specific videos you would like to see, please leave me a comment below! 🙂
