to help in the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, I’m auctioning off this original art journal spread (literally cut right out of one of my altered book journals!) and donating 100% of the money Austin Pets Alive!
I really wanted to support an organization that is helping in the rescue, transportation, and care of animals impacted by Harvey. after some research, Austin Pets Alive! is in need of financial donations most right now and are preparing themselves for a huge influx of animals (both from shelters and people surrendering their pets). check out their fb page for videos & live streams on the incredible work they are doing!
you can hop on over to the ebay listing here to place a bid. again, 100% of the money will be donated and the winning bid will probably get a few little by bun goodies in their package too 🙂 the auction closes Wednesday, Sept 6th @ 11am pst.
I know it’s not much, but I want to do what I can to help. thank-you in advance, and see below for additional info!
+++ UPDATE – the art auction is now closed! thanks to those who bid, the winning bidder, and an anonymous donor – we raised and donated $750 to Austin Pets Alive! THANK-YOU!! <3 +++
+ here’s the original blog post when I created this journal spread
+ check out Austin Pets Alive! website, Facebook page, and an update on what they’re doing to help
+ I also want to give a shout out to Way Art Yonder Studio, who is donating $25 of every class registration to relief efforts (until Aug 31st). if you were planning on signing up for either of my workshops happening there…now would be a great time to do so!!
*this journal spread was completed in one of my moleskine ‘art plus’ sketchbooks, and the text is lyrics from fiona apple’s ‘sleep to dream’
for the first time ever, I am selling some original journal spreads and ‘in-progress’ spreads from a few of my altered book journals!
as you may have seen on instagram, a few weeks ago while cleaning my studio I found a stash of altered books that weren’t fully finished, or that were falling apart. rather than hoarding this artwork for myself, I’ve decided to pass it on and list it in my etsy shop.
you can hop on over here to check out everything I’ve listed! there are 8 completed spreads (one of which is still in a book), and 4 ‘in-progress’ spreads…
***UPDATE: everything is now SOLD OUT! thank-you so so so much for those of you with quick fingers and who may have been watching my Etsy shop. all listings were gone within 10 minutes from the time I posted…THANK-YOU!! <3***
woah you guys. look at me…all…being on top of things…and actually getting an unboxing video up on time! you can hop on over to my YouTube channel and watch me open up the May ArtSnacks box and create this journal spread using the supplies.
oh and bonus – if you’re new to ArtSnacks and want to subscribe, use the code BYBUN10 to get 10% off your first month’s box!
enjoy, and happy art snackin’!
looking back in my blog archives – I realized that I don’t put up blog posts like this very frequently. if my research serves me correct, my last ‘in progress’ post was in 2015! needless to say, I’ll work on sharing photos like this more often…
this is a small sampling of art journal spreads that are deemed ‘in progress’. each of these spreads are at various percentages of completion, but in my mind they are not done. from here, they will either be finished, forgotten and returned to later on, or abandoned in their entirety. only time will tell…
good morning, and happy friday! it’s finally here…my latest online class SPIRITS is now live and available for purchase! hop on over to my Etsy shop to snag a seat in class. a few other quick things to note:
+ SPIRITS is available at a discounted rate for this week only! starting may 6th, the class will return to its regular price.
+ Class bundles that contain SPIRITS will also reflect that early bird rate, again – for this week only! so take advantage of that early bird price for extra savings when you purchase bundles.
+ Be one of the first 20 students to enroll in SPIRITS and you’ll snag one of these! – UPDATE: THIS IS NOW SOLD OUT
alright, so there you have it. whew, I can’t believe it’s actually launch day and I’m putting this class out into the world. as I’ve mentioned before – Spirits has been a real labor of love (and my BIGGEST CLASS YET) – so I’m beyond happy right now to put it out there for all of you…
I’ll see you in class…xo
***UPDATE: wow you guys! the ‘spirit pack’ giveaway was gone in under 3 minutes! thank-you so much to those who set alarms, were up early (or in a weird time zone), and have purchased the class…your support means so much!! xo***
