As promised…….

Here are some sneaks of some mini ‘FLOWER POWER’ wire bound booklets I have made…


Each booklet has 13 POWERFUL ‘flower’ quotes to….



Each and every page is HAND PAINTED by ME!!!


Every page is of strong cardboard and all the pages have been sealed for protection from dust and easily wiped clean…


BRIGHT, COLOURFUL, and a perfect little book that stands on it’s own…

perfect to have on my desk for that reminder how



EVERY BOOK IS DIFFERENT…. There are no 2 books the same….. just as WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT….. and that is WONDERFUL!!!!

I also made 6 double thickness canvases 4 x 4 in…. Hand painted by ME!!!… Sealed for protection from dust and easily wiped clean…






Would you like to see more of them?

Please leave a comment….. and I MIGHT show you……LOL

Inspiration Station!!

Have you heard of this before?…. Well, I have one now…..

You know those times where you don’t have much time, or you just can’t get motivated, or you just can’t THINK what PROJECT or Embellishment to put on your layout or canvas or journal?


It must have been the fact that a week ago I ‘de-cluttered’ my Studio, and I was thinking how am I going to be more organised? Will I be able to keep my Studio this tidy all the time?….. I received a regular email from My Creative Classroom with a FREE Class called “THE 15 MINUTE CHALLENGE”.. (not that I wanted another Challenge), but the fact I saw this by Jeri Parks, founder of MCC:

In this free class I share my journey to finding the 'time' to be more creative. It includes presentations, tips and ideas for simplifying the process and getting more done. Each week we will discuss our goals and accomplishments....and keep the streak alive. Don't know what 'the streak' is, then join the class and find out.
The class is a free gift to our students who sign up for the MCC Newsletter. After you sign up, you will receive a welcome email with the enrollment key. Log on to our site and enter the key to enroll in this class.

A couple of points caught my eye…. ‘finding the time’ and ‘simplifying the process’

I was so inspired and created my own INSIRATION STATION…. want to know what it is or what it does?…. Click on the “THE 15 MINUTE CHALLENGE” and sign up for the Newsletter and join me….

Oh DEAR!!!…. seems I have lost some of the photos in my past Blogs here on RinRinKa Mixed Media Art!!!!…. eeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkk!!!

I had some ‘issues’ (I had no idea what the hell I was doing)… on my new mobile phone when it came to transferring from my phone to my laptop…. grrrrr.. obviously I pressed DELETE somewhere and Pfffttt!! GONE!!.

Well… I wouldn’t have a clue.. and honestly it’s too hard for my brain to work out at the moment, so I just have to ‘let it go’… I hope you understand????

I thought I better give you an update as to what I have been doing lately…. actually, I have been posting on my Scraps and Rides Blog, and my Art, Life, and Work all seems to get meshed together… maybe I should just have one Blog?

Having been on 2 weeks holiday has been the BEST thing…… I have relaxed and cleaned up my ‘Studio’ and I have to tell you…. I LOVE IT!!!…. I have been a good girl and put things back in it’s place after each project…. (um…. some PROJECTS can last up to 2 days..LOL)… but I want to stay in here and keep painting till waaay too late at night… eeeek, how am I going to go when I have to go back to work next week???????????

To be on the safe side, I have uploaded my 123 Challenges for Oct in Flickr as well as here:

Colour: School Bus Yellow

Technique: Paper Strips

Word: Miss, as missing someone or Miss for a girl…

Why not give it a go?…. there are always awesome give aways and prizes…


Little Miss Sunshine – inspired by Tim’s Sally – Paint Your Story….



I don’t want to miss a day making ART!!!

As well as the 123 Challenge, I have been painting canvas’ and my journal… I’ll post those in a few days…… HOPEFULLY!!!…. ;-)
