ART Journaling and Mixed Media by Carla Persoon

(ga hier naar een Nederlandstalige Startpagina)

So nice to see you here. On this website you will find my creative explorations in the field of Art Journaling, Mixed Media, Cards and Bookmaking.
Results from the online classes I take from fabulous teachers and my own explorations of art materials. My own original work is sometimes accompanied by in process pictures that serve as a mini tutorial.

Buy my work:

Some of my original art work can also be bought. I love the proces of making but simple do not have enough space to keep everything I make.  For the moment I do not have a webshop, but made this page as an overview for all that is available. If you see anything you like you can always sent me a note via the contact form.


I also love to help you on your way of creating beautiful things or just finding a new hobby. If you live close to Leidschendam, the Netherlands you can do a live art play or workshops with me. I will do this mainly in Dutch, but english workshops can be provided.
I so hope I can infect you with my art work.

Connect and follow me:

My blogs are in English, but some of the other pages are in Dutch. My newsletter is available in English and Dutch, it will always contain a list of recent blogposts and some more information. So a great way to keep up-to-date.

If you do not like a newsletter you can check this website regularly or follow me on other social media. Scroll down for my bloglist.
