ART Journaling and Mixed Media by Carla Persoon

(ga hier naar een Nederlandstalige Startpagina)

Here you will find all my creative explorations in the field of Art Journaling and Mixed Media.
Results from the online classes I take from fabulous teachers and my own explorations of art materials.
My own original work is mostly accompanied by in process pictures that serve as a mini tutorial.
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.  If you see anything you like you can always contact me 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.

My blogs are in English, but most of the other pages are in Dutch. My newsletter is also only available in Dutch. If you like to follow me check this website regularly or follow me on other social media. Scroll down for my bloglist or a list of my social media.

Greetings Carla
