Inspiring Art Journaler - Phizzychick

It seems only appropriate to me to showcase the artist who turned me on to journaling as the first inspirational art journaler. Those of you who are also on Craftster will definitely know who I'm talking about since she's a huge personality and help over on the site.

Phizzychick is an artist who resides in Spain, but is originally from the UK. She is a former art teacher who has had her art shown in galleries in London and a self proclaimed hoarder with a tendency to pick up bits and bobs of paper from the streets as well as feathers, funky stones and whatever else catches her eye. She has quite the collection of found playing cards...

Her style is instantly recognizable once you've taken a few peeks at her work. Whether her themes are dark, cheery, funny or serious her colors are vibrant and her line and collage work is unique. Her pages are often times filled with layers of tiny details and personal meaning.

Her style is whimsical and playful and a few of her wee details are repeated through a number of her works, such as her unique style of hearts. Her journals tend to include a plethora of techniques, from simple ink drawings to several layers of paint and collage.

I highly recommend giving her work a look. You can get a great idea of what different techniques on pages can look like. She's also done a few themed books which are beautiful and fun. You can find her...
