I’ve spent some time this week working on my blog and website. Taking the online course, Blogging from the Heart with Susannah Conway got me thinking about how I could improve this space, not only via my writing but also how it was organized . . .Read More
Do you participate in challenges? I’m asking about Art Challenges where you make something, perhaps even post your efforts for let’s say . . . 30 days, 61 days or even 365 days!Read More

Well, I must admit that I have not jumped in and created a bit of mixed media art every day. But, I have managed to do so a few times a week. Yeeha! This is very good! Let me share with you what I was able to do -and rather quickly, I might add. This morning I grabbed my watercolor crayons and a piece of watercolor paper, cut to the size of an index card . . .Read More
08/11/2015 -It's been about a week since we've been back home and I have been unpacking and reorganizing, seeing family & friends, joining a gym and not really creating any art except my photography. You can imagine I was beginning to get itchy to start again . . .Read More
Recently, I found I have not been working in my art journal on a daily basis, but still dive in a few times a month. Instead, I take photographs every day (fairly consistently) and journal about my favorite one for that particular day on my blipfoto journal. This habit has become a wonderful creative outlet for me - obviously, as I just celebrated 4 years of keeping a daily, or almost daily photo journal . . .Read More

I won't be using this blog much anymore, but will leave it up online for reference. If you visit online (not via a reader) you can use the search box top right to find things. It allows you to easily look for something in particular and get a list of related blog posts I wrote . . . I just searched for ARTchix Studio and quickly got a list related posts. There are many free tutorials and step by step how-to's that I think could be helpful. You can also change the view of this blog to a different presentation that you find easier to read. On the top, on the left, click on Magazine -the current view- and you can choose from other ways to view like Classic, Flipcard and Timeline.
I also did a bit of updating on my teaching site, where I have pdf lessons on Collage Techniques on canvas, mini art quilt book, photo art journal and fabric stamping & painting. There are free tutorials too! I have added my creative lenna supplies amazon store link there so if you need supplies for the lessons or just for your artwork, you can easily find supplies I use & recommend. There always seems to be much work for me to do keeping my various sites updated so I am really glad to have found the Index-card-A-Day project. I've just blogged about it on creative lenna tumblr.
I'll leave you with some other links to find me elsewhere!
