I am lovin' these 4 colors!

Playing with a few sizzlin' summer colors today!

I know you LOVE it when I share my desk cam sneak peeks. (Thank you to everyone who requested to see more!!)

You also know how much I love color, so, today I want to share with you, 4 swoon-worthy colors that are making me super happy right now:
  • Yellow Ochre - Americana Acrylic (DecoArt)
  • Hansa Yellow Medium - Fluid Acrylic (DecoArt)
  • Quinacridone Magenta - Fluid Acrylic (DecoArt)
  • White Pearl - Pearlescent ink (Daler-Rowney)

This week, I've been working on one-of-a-kind, handmade art journals . Every single page is custom-designed with painty goodness, textures, creative hand lettering + personal symbology.

My idea behind these beauties is to have them work as collaborative journals. Simply put: I start them, you finish them. There's so much more to come! Stay tuned :)

What are your favorite colors to use while art journaling?


  1. I love your colors too! I tend to use pink. With anything. That's just how I roll.

    I like the collaborative art journal concept.

    1. Hi Lynda! Thank you! Oh yes, gotta roll with the pink. Instant game changer, for sure, when you need instant happiness ;-)

  2. nice combo of colors! Very summery

    1. Thanks Stephanie! I have been painting with Yellow Ochre more than usual, lately. I really like how rich it looks when painted next to a dark blue like Cobalt Turquoise.
