I’ve been falling in love with pressing flowers all over again, something I did throughout my childhood, I rekindled the love recently. With a beautiful flower press gifted to me for my birthday I’ve experimented and played with them between the pages fo my journal. I laminated these dried daisies and added some crocheted lace to the edging to create a tip in that is by far my favourite. Have you pressed any flowers recently? #pressedflowers #journal #journaling #ephemera #junkjournaling #junkjournal #mixedmedia #mtn #travelersfactory #selfportrait #inkypatreontribe #littleravenink #courtneydiaz #vintage #artistsoninstagram
A weekend of paper and thoughts, kids arguing and hubby patting my head, the good the bad the ugly... it’s all between the pages of the notebooks we choose the journals we love... I enjoy these stolen moments amongst the chaos. #artistsoninstagram #junkjournal #inkypatreontribe #mentalhealth #journaling #journal #mixedmedia #onmydesk #feelgoodparcel #patreon #littleravenink #courtneydiaz #mtn #travelersfactory #junkjournaling #vintage #ephemera
Today my anxiety is getting the better of me, actually this entire week and a half it’s gotten the better of me. That pit you get in your chest as you wake up to another day riddled with something no one can actually see. It affects all aspects of your life and yet ... you look fine. I can assure you I am not fine... it’s taken me hours to get out of bed everyday this week... hours to ready myself to film... too many hours to reset enough to function. These are the times when our journals are our safehouse, our anchor when the dark feels limitless. You will find me here today.. because I can’t seem to be anywhere else. #journalkeeper #journal #mtn #anxiety #junkjournal #artistsoninstagram #inkypatreontribe #courtneydiaz #littleravenink #journalthroughthedark #write #art #mixedmedia

Late night journaling before we packed the car for a trip to visit my family the country for Easter 2.0. I’m having fun experimenting with junk journals and a vintage spin in my travelers notebook. It’s fun to skip down the bright colours of the rainbow in one book then dip my toes into the age of nostalgia #travelersnotebook #midori #mtn #junkjournal #mixedmedia #littleravenink #inkypatreontribe #vintage #journal #artistsoninstagram #onmydesk #baumkuchenstudio #bktrulyyours
A lady I will never have the pleasure of meeting in real life but has touched my life for many years through her stories, her colour, her love for wild Patterns and sheer determination to live a full and amazing life. I will miss what you bring to the world and I am so sorry the path you were paving so brightly got paved too short, I always admire how you dressed so boldly, a fellow walking rainbow, Thankyou for being an Aussie pioneer for the crafters and the makers of this digital world... #colourforcam @curlypops
Happy Easter long weekend! We are on the tail end here in oz, with Monday firmly on our doorstep. We spent the weekend with family, watching our not so small teacup humans race around looking for Easter eggs.. to think they are almost as tall as us but still so playful at heart. Today I am taking it slow, working a little, cleaning my apocalyptic studio and taking some time to play in my journals...how was your Easter? #superiorlabor #travelersfactory #littleravenink #inkypatreontribe #baumkuchen #baumkuchenstudio #crochet #attic24 #cosystripeblanket #attic24ripple #journal #yarn #hobonichi #handstitchedleathert #littleravenink #courtneydiaz
Sunday’s are for sitting in bed surrounded by your favourite items with a hot drink and just listening to the sounds of the home buzz around you... or in my case get up and get ready quickly cause we gotta be outta the house in 20 mins and no ones had a shower.. #reallife lol #littleravenink #travelersfactory #mtn #mixedmedia #journal #inkypatreontribe #courtneydiaz #midori #midoritravelersnotebook #art #artistofinstagram #patreon #youtube
Spent today giving myself permission to play... I woke up in a total funk, and my journals weren’t giving me joy or maybe they were reflecting how I was feeling ‘meh’ so I decided to put on some music gather things I haven’t played with in a long time and just experimented... a style shift and a jazz up of an old friend and my muse was firing on all cylinders.. I showed up and did the hard things till it became a joyful process. #inkypatreontribe #journal #travelersfactory #mtn #onmydesk #junkjournal #mixedmedia #littleravenink #collage #papercrafts #aloveletter
Spent a little time in my b6 #journal which was muchly needed after 3 months being dormant. My #hobonichi has been taking my focus most of this year and always being behind my b6 got a little forgotten.. this journal is my inner monologue, thoughts feelings, heart purges. I didn’t know how much I missed the safety of these pages till I played in them recently. Using the @dyanreaveley new mask/stencil I created a self portrait complete with rainbow dress. This was a prompt I did for my #patreon. Using 3 colours in paint marker.  @ranger_ink #dylusionsstencils #artjournal #mixedmedia #littleravenink #inkypatreontribe #onmydesk #sojournerbyretrowtures #folio my insert is by @documented.journey and is holding up to all of my art mediums!
