So glad to see you on my website

(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.

I mostly sell via special Facebook groups. If you see anything you like you can always contact me via the contact form or sign up for my newsletter.

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.

Please sign up for my newsletter if you do not want to miss out on all the news and ......(sometimes) receive free goodies

Greetings Carla

I love making quircky things, so taking part of the latest workshop of Marieke Blokland from the Bloknote Academy was an absolute must for me. In the first lesson we started with line art inspired by Saul Steinberg. And I had much fun doing that. Those line figures somehow where easier for me than making complete…
