Work in progress

I've been putting in many hours in my studio last week (and outside of it too), working on different projects and fascinated by different things. When you spread your time over different projects you don't get to finish it all at once, but it sure makes life interesting. So here's some things that I've been working on.

I've been working in the journal of course. Always the journal, no matter what.

I've been making backgrounds for a series of atc's. This will become a step by step for you all.

I've been welcoming autumn with my camera.

I have plans for making a coloring book zine, these are my first tries for pages for it.

I've started a large size drawing after a magazine picture. This will be colored in with gouache.

I've been working on a giveaway journal! Yay! Come back on Wednesday for the full reveal!

And I spend hours being fascinated by the shape of branches against the sky. These would make interesting drawings.

I won't have much time this week to work on any project. I'm part of a book club and I have to finish this book first before anything else. I love reading, but sometimes it's like a chore when the timing's just wrong and you have to finish a book within a certain amount of time.  And since I have a vacation coming up next week I want to finish it before then.

In any case when the above projects are finished I'll be sure to show them to you in all their glory (or failure, whichever will apply by the time they're done). Let's hope I will still have some time to play left the coming days. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy week!


  1. Leuke dingen ben je mee bezig Carin.
    Die achtergrondjes voor atc's zijn ook erg mooi.
    Ik zal voor je duimen dat je nog wat tijd overhoudt voor je projecten ;-)
    Welk boek lees je momenteel?

    Groetjes, Marga

    1. De eindeloze zee van Kéhthévane Davrichewy. Ik moet er zo nog aan beginnen. Gaat over een immigrante in Parijs. Ben benieuwd.

    2. Oke, ken ik niet. Heb het ff genoteerd want lees de laatste tijd weer regelmatig.

  2. You have a great start on your coloring book zine...looks like fun! And the large scale painting you are working on is gorgeous...beautiful drawing. The giveaway journal looks just amazing...can't wait to hear more about it!

    1. Thanks Andria.I hope all these projects will live up to their promising starts. :-)

  3. Hoi caatje, wat maak je een prachtige en kleurrijke art, ik geniet er al een poos van en ga nu volger worden. Je inspireert me enorm, wat heb je een talent en een aansprekende manier om dingen door te geven. Bedankt!!
    Ik artjournal nog niet zo lang, ben hier na de zomervakantie voor het eerst tegenaan gelopen. Het trekt me enorm en ik probeer ook al een en ander uit. Haha in een oud kaartenboek van frankrijk, lekker groot. Heb geljk geleerd wat gesso doet.
    Ik ben op dit moment meer een kaartenmaker, ik houd erg van papier en kleur. Kom je eens langs?

    1. Dank je wel! Leuk dat je ook aan het journalen bent geslagen. Ik ga zeker op je blog kijken.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
