These 12 small pieces have progressed into the #collage phase. 🙌 This is why I must hoard...er, keep every little scrap. You never know when you’re going to need that! #hoardersunite 💪

Outside is a misery of rain and traffic. But I’m keeping it hot hot hot inside with these paint colors! Working on 12 6x6 pieces at the same time. Excited to see how they change and evolve as I work on them!

Work-in-Progress. Had a very unfortunate camera slippage, but if you swipe left there’s a process video — or at least the top half of a process video. 🤦🏽‍♀️ #thebestlaidplans 😬 I was so inspired by @ardithgoodwin ‘s work on #tarpaper that I just had to give it a try! Used just 5 colors + white.

In my hotel room with my #artjournal and a bunch of markers. Add a bit of creativity and it’s enough to make magic! 🙌 #quotestoliveby #dotherightthing #mlkjr #brushlettering #artjournaleveryday #jbletters

Had so much fun on the set of @makeitartsytv today with May Flaum @craftwithmay painting galaxies and cutting stuff up. Then @cherylboglioli blew me away with her gorgeous — and shockingly easy — sculptures. Season 4 of #makeitartsytv is going to be amazing, you guys!!! 🎉 You can catch season 3 right now on your local PBS Create channel (airs Fridays at 11:30am and 5:30pm) or online at makeitartsy.com!

In my hotel room mucking around in my #artjournal. One of the things I love about #artjournaling is that it’s an easy art form to take with you wherever you go. Tonight I’m working with markers and pens on top of a painted surface. 🙌 #artjournaleveryday #interestingface #whatjuliemade #julielikeseyes

Stitched my way to #Cleveland while listening to podcasts. The time just flew by. ✈️ If you haven’t yet listened to the #TEDradiohour podcast about the power of art, it’s worth an hour of your time! #embroidery #embroideryart #whatjuliemade #stitching #julielikeseyes

Today is the day! 🤞 Playing with stencils in my #artjournal. If you’re super eagle eyed, you’ll spy two new #balzerdesigns stencils mixed in with the rest! 🙊😘 #tcwstencillove #whatjuliemade #artjournaleveryday #julielikeseyes

I leave tomorrow to film the new season of @makeitartsytv and therefore I am working hard to finish all the samples for my segments. This #watercolor painting is a simple technique I came up with that allows anyone — no need to be able to draw — to create a painting from a photograph. 🙌 You can catch the previous seasons of #makeitartsytv on #PBS and @createtvchannel — it’s on #createtv every Friday! You can also watch online for free (link in my bio). #whatjuliemade #watercolorpainting #inspiredbyart

Working on a small abstract painting inspired by nature. 🍂 But...even though it’s meant to be abstract, I see the beginnings of a figure. Do you see it too? #wip #abstractpainting #whatjuliemade

The best part about leaving a project to dry overnight is waking up in the morning to find it done! 🙌🍁 This is sun printed fabric and I loooooooove it! 😍❤️🎉 Can’t stop feeling the fabric, as if the leaves will come off...is that weird? 😬😜 #whatjuliemade #sunprint #surfacedesign #grafixartsplastics #makeitartsytv #leaves

Despite the cold temperatures, the color palette around here is HOT! 🔥 Just did my first #pouredpainting and I’m in love with the technique! It’s fun & easy!! Going to be showing you the how-to on the upcoming season of @makeitartsytv (we film the new season next week!) #makeitartsytv #goldenpaints #whatjuliemade #acrylicpaint

I worked on two faces today. Both from the same reference photo, but with very different feelings. 👯 #workinginaseries #acryliconpaper #mixedmedia #painting #whatjuliemade
