Hi my beautiful friends! I hope you are all having a beautiful summer so far! I didn't realize I haven't been blogging for 7 months until my older daughter asked me how come I'm not blogging any more! So here I am, back to the blogging world again.

Today, I have something different to share with you. I haven't been making any card for the past 7 months, can you believe it? However, I didn't stop creating! I've been working on my art journal and back to drawing again, I enjoy turning my drawing into a mix media page and write down my thoughts. Sometimes the words come right out, but sometimes they come later... I truly enjoy creating in my art journal! I'm sharing some of the pages inside my journal with you today. Some are my silly drawing, and some are my mix media pages that involved inks, paints, stamps, and masks. Enjoy!

I hope you like what I share today! Before I leave, I'm sharing a layout I did with the photo booth pictures of me and my two sweeties. 

Thank you so much for stopping by as always! I will be back soon to share some more, and maybe a card or two! :)

Supplies for Mix Media: Ranger dabber paints, distress stains, distress ink pads, Prisma color pencils, watercolors, AM patterned papers, Studio Calico wood shapes, Maya Road chip board, Amy Tangerine stamps, Hero Arts stamps

Supplies for layout: Crate Papers dp, chipboards, Glimmer Mist, Studio Calico butterfly mask

Kiara! So awesome to see you back in blogland! Yay! And it's good to see that you were creative as ever these past 7 months! Journaling is an excellent way to preserve your memories and jot down your feelings and express them in your own personal style. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pages! I'm so inspired to do this, too! Take good care, sweetie! Hugs!

So glad that you are back to blogging again! I certainly can understand when you have a young family and always on the go--there are priorities! I love your drawing and journaling. It's so great that you have been creative all this time! I share your sentiment about the food and thoughts about Taiwan! Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer! HUGS!
