Oracle cards - Free for you

You can not imagine how much fun I have, creating this oracle cards for you!
They are colorful, they are sweet, they put a smile on your face, they have words of wisdom, they can be used by mamas and children and they are for you (the best part right :)

First thing to do: click on the image and copy and past to your pictures and then print them out, or make the download here
I print them on a 8x10 photographic paper and they look gorgeous and shiny.

I want to give you some ideas on how to use this babies.

Make a pile and shuffle your cards, use your intuition when to stop and take a card. Think about the message on the card and journal about it. For more fun include some washi tape, painted papers and stamps.
Cut more paper squares and create more cards for your deck - spread some paint or watercolor, make some doodles and write your message.

Take one or two cards and disposed them on a special place, on your altar for example or on your desk so they can inspire you during your day.


You can keep them in a fabric bag for exemple or just put them in a envelope that you can attach to your jounal, emblish with washi tape, make some doodles around the cards , to give them a special place. This one is great to make with your kids.

I really hope you enjoy this gift, it comes from the heart and I wish you have more inspired and fun days with this tiny oracle cards.

Have a wonderful weekend



Prayer mandala - all I create I create through love

Inspired by the words in The oracle cards Gaia from Toni Carmine Salerno, I have painted this mandala with the prayer/ affirmation 
"All I create I create through love
all I create is for the higher good of all
I am truly blessed and grateful
For all the abundance in my life"

It's painted with watercolors and mixed media techniques, from the soul :)

Please send me a message if you are interested.

Wishing you an abundant life with all the good

Girl and puppy mixed media painting tutorial

Today I am sharing with you a mixed media painting tutorial, perfect time so you can have creative time on your weekend.
Enjoy !

You will need:
a surface to paint - I am using my journal 
Acrylic paints
Watercolor crayons ( mine are from Caran D'ache)
Tissue paper and some scraps of other papers
Black pencil
Acrylic markers
Oil pastels
Gel medium

Step 1 - make some doodles with your watercolor crayons and activate the color with a bit of water
Step 2 - spread some paint randomly using color you love

Step 3 - glue with gel medium silk paper and bits of other papers that grab your attention 

step 4 - draw your characters and elements on the painting with a black pencil and have fun making some doodles to get that child innocent playful look

Step 5 - use your paint markers to give one more layer to the background ( in some spots) and details to the painting. Apply a bit of water with your paintbrush to dissolve the paint and get a transparent watercolor look

Step 6 - use your finger to make some apples to your tree and paint the girls face with your acrylic paint

Step 7 - paint the dog with a bit of watercolor crayon, I used a deep blue and mixed with white acrylic paint.
Step 8 - use your pastels to highlight some areas and give contrast
Step 9 - remember to give your girl a pink chicks ;)

I hope you like this process 
Wishing you a great weekend
