About

Interactive Mixed Media Art Journals, 140 lb. watercolour paper, great for the artist.

Journals have always been my joy. I love to write and I love to make journals so others can enjoy.
When I was a young girl, my mom would have me sit on the front porch, each summer day, and teach me embroidery, drawing, or some other art. I am very thankful. It sometimes for a young girl was hard to sit for an hour while my friends were playing. Today, I am glad for the lessons I learned.
My first journal was a photo album for my family. I have always made gifts to give. I feel a personal connection by putting a personal touch on a gift.
I have a strong belief that gifts are from the heart. And my art is very much in my heart.
Journals are my main focus. I started Crimson Cricket to showcase my art, and to meet new people and fellow artists. Crimson Cricket was formed in 2010. It was my dream and a hard one to make a reality. Now I am on the path to sharing my gifts.
All of my journals are handmade. The interactive journals are fun journals with each page holding flaps, pockets, fold outs and lots and lots of journaling space. The Interactive Art Journals are a delight for the artist in your life. Each page is 140 lb watercolour paper. Ready and waiting for any type of mixed media.

My process is the same for all journals. I use only premium paper, leather, canvas, paints, linen thread for binding, and lots of time and care.
