“Truth” and “Time”: A Mixed Media Art Journal

This article is written by Cecilia Sanchez

I had many things to tell, but are all negative thoughts and makes me sad. I decided to hide those negative thoughts and only save two words of optimism. “Truth” and “Time”is my latest art journal page.

"Truth" and "Time by Cecilia SanchezMy name is Cecilia Sanchez and I live in Málaga, Spain. I am married and we have three gorgeous sons: Javi (9), Antonio (6) and Jorge (6). They inspire me every day with their crazy ideas.

Since my childhood I liked photography, drawing, collage and make photo albums with cuts and travel souvenirs. I also love crafts in general. In 2006, a few months after birth of my twins, I discovered scrapbooking, digital first and then the traditional. I love to do 30X30 pages, cards and mini albums, and for over a year I am fascinated with the Art Journal and Mixed Media.

I am inspired by everyday things, feelings … The art journal is a real diary for me, because sometimes I need to express my feelings with colors and shapes

I love learning and discovering new techniques and materials. For a couple of years I began to take courses online and in person to learn new techniques and to incorporate them into my work. Since September 2010, I am part of the design team of Sweet Card Club, a monthly challenge blog cards.

From May 2011 also became part of the European team KURETAKE design, manufacturers of markers and pens Zig Memory System.

Since October 2011 I organize workshops Scrapbooking on “My Pink Scrapbook” unique physical scrapbooking store in Malaga.
