Keepsake Journals and a Painted Tiger

Hello creative friends.  I hope everyone is having a great week.  My week is going well.  This week I have a set of Keepsake journals that I made for my Etsy shop and a tiger that I pained in my art journal.  The Keepsake journals are made out of packaging that I received and thought they would make great journals.  So I used the packaging for the journal covers and added pages using plane and pattern paper.  I added some pockets and tags, beads and charms and then stickers from my stash.  After creating the books I covered a box in pattern paper and added a ribbon to keep them all together.  Here are pictures of the Keepsake journals I created.

I really like the way this set turned out and think they are really cute.  If interested in purchasing any of the journals I made you can visit my Etsy shop at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoysArt360 and you can see a video showing a flip through these journals on my YouTube channel at: https://youtu.be/7WM7CoH_fZQ
I have always like to draw animals, but have also wanted to learn to paint animals.  So I decided to paint a tiger in my art journal for practice.  I drew the tiger and then used watercolor paints to quickly color the background.  I then used acrylic paint to paint the tiger.  Here is a picture of the tiger I painted in my art journal.
And if interested here is the video showing how I painted the tiger.

I really like the way it turned out and had fun painting it, but need more practice painting animals.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great week. Until next time, Happy Creating.
