"Nothing is changing" art journal.

It seems like I didn't share here any of my art journal pages for quite a long time. I'm very happy then that I found a moment today to write this little blog post.
Below page is very personal as all of my art journals are and I feel like attempting to describe exactly what is it about or even trying to translate my writing is hard if not impossible. Let me just say that it's about... love. Like most of the stuff in my life recently :)

"Nothing is changing"

As you can see on the picture above I worked in my new square Dylusions art journal. I loved the previous one - just the quality of paper and the way it's sewn makes it a prefect book for me. I'm off now to continue my work in it. I wish you all a lovely and creative Sunday!

I'm very happy and excited to announce that Everything Art will be at the great Art Materials Live show at the NEC in Birmingham this weekend! I will be demonstrating my mixed-media canvas painting and collage for all four days (5/11-8/11) and together with Jamie we will be very happy to have a chat with all of you who will decide to visit our stand. 
We are on stand K02! Please come because we love to share our love to art, mixed-media and art journaling with others. 

On Saturday we are also going to have an amazing guest, one of our Wanderlust 2016 teachers - Magda Polakow. She will be also demonstrating and sharing her lovely techniques with us.

"Planets" canvas.

All of these little stories behind all of us; simple differences that sometimes can put walls between people, but in fact are only an illusion; our separate planets that we are creating to live in despite sharing same needs with thousands of people all over the world - that's the inspiration behind below 20"x8"canvas called "Planets". It's a continuation of "Telephone Calls" collage on canvas, "Loosing colours" art journal spread and "Connections" canvas.
Wszystkie te nasze malutkie historie; zwykłe różnice które stawiają pomiędzy nami bariery, podczas gdy tak naprawdę są tylko iluzoryczne; nasze oddzielne planety na których żyjemy pomimo że wszystkich nas łączy tak wiele - oto co zainspirowało moje poniższe płótno (rozmiar 20"x8"), które nazwałam "Planety". Jest kontynuacją kolażu na płótnie "Rozmowy telefoniczne", strony w art journalu "Wypłowiali" oraz płótna "Powiązania".

We have spent a beautiful weekend teaching classes with PaperoAmo and shooting a bit for Wanderlust 2016 in Prague. It was beautiful and very relaxing! Especially sketching this amazing view in my travel art journal :)
Ostatni weekend spędziliśmy w Pradze prowadząc warsztaty oraz kręcąc odrobinę do Wanderlust 2016. Było pięknie i bardzo relaksująco! Szczególnie jeśli chodzi o szkicowanie widoku na miasto w moim podróżnym art journalu :)

Here are few pictures from the class. Please visit PaperoAmo blog for more.
Poniżej kilka zdjęć z warsztatu. Odwiedźcie proszę bloga PaperoAmo po więcej.

"Intentions" stones.

A few weeks ago we spent three lovely day in Wales. It was short but I absolutely fell in love with views and we both really enjoyed these few days off. That time we were very busy with Wanderlust. Well... we still are but that's another story :)

I love the sea, the beach and all these treasures you can find there. I came back home with two tubs full of stones, shells, feathers, sand etc. They were so beautiful that I just couldn't let them stay in these boxes, I had to bring them to live and that is how I created my little stones.
The mandala shape is still one of my biggest inspirations. I love the harmony and simplicity of it. I think the shape itself holds an amazing energy and that is why I really love these little stones so much.
Another inspiration behind them is artwork from Taran Eco Design which is an amazing place to visit in Wales.

Wanderlust 2016 - a dream that is coming true.

Hello! Today I'm thrilled to share with you a little story about my dream that is just coming true. The whole thing is so massively important to me that it's even difficult to find the right place to start. Anyway I think I have to start with the word... "sharing". It sounds magical and it is indeed magical. I learnt about it's real meaning when I started teaching art journal classes few years ago. Sharing my passion, creativity and inspirations became one of the best things in my life and the more I was giving to other people the more was always coming back to me and each time it was getting stronger.

Unfortunately for few reasons I always felt limited and couldn't get to each and every person as close as I wanted. I am so full of ideas but most of them are just too much for four hours class. I wanted to inspire and show what inspires me instead of share step-by-step instructions. I wanted to create a group of artists who will share their creative process and inspire others to... just simply create without too much thinking and without planning.
I wanted to experiment and explore creative world, I wanted to teach people and learn from others at the same time.
Then I met Jamie and we quickly found out that we have same dreams and together we can make it work. We created Everything Art Ltd.

After few months of working all days we can now introduce you our dream that came true - Wanderlust 2016.

Wanderlust 2016 by Everything Art from Everything Art on Vimeo.

Wanderlust is whole year long journey - an online event offering you videos from 24 guest teachers and 2 resident teachers (me and Jamie) one every week (each one downloadable and with PDF instructions provided), 50 amazing videos, which will run for over 50 hours in total, access to a forum with an amazing and friendly community, inspirations, challenges, discussions, galleries, workshops, interviews, giveaways and generous discounts from our partners. The perfect alternative to in-person classes! 

More details about the class structure and our mission  here.

Wanderlust is our answer to all people. Some who want to try, who are hungry for experiments and who want to learn, whatever your level of experience.

You don’t have to travel, spend money on accommodation, pack your suitcases or find babysitter for your kids, but still you are getting a bunch of inspirations from the best teachers in the industry that you can interact with on our forum, a fabulous community and topics where you are welcome to share opinions and enjoy all the bigger and smaller activities we prepared for you.

We have created an amazing team of 24 international teachers who will share their love to art with you. The teachers list is a secret now, but tomorrow we are going to start revealing them. Like our Facebook page to follow reveals. I am one of them of course, and in total on Wanderlust I am going to teach 13 in-depth classes!

This whole year long journey with one of best teachers in art and craft industry costs only £65 (approx $100 / €89) which makes it a great value adventure in mixed-media and art journaling. Please keep in mind that it's a special offer, only until December 15th 2015. Later the whole class will cost £99.
