Happy happy Wednesday, my dears!! If you saw my story yesterday you know that it was a wacky day! Not bad necessarily, just bizarre!πŸ™ƒ I'm hoping today is a little calmer! Too many days like that and I start to go a little loony myself!🀣🀣

#lilcolorblast - Yellow and Black (Hufflepuff) Not much black.... but my Hufflepuff candle counts for something, right?πŸ™ˆ
πŸ’›
#aprilhpwithleni - Riddikulus. Lupin is here to teach us how to rid ourselves of boggarts!!

#iamsweetapril - Fave Powerful Character. So, there are so many powerful characters in HP that I really had to think. But Hermione kept coming up in my mind because she was not only physically powerful, but mentally as well. Book smarts, right?!πŸ˜‰πŸ“š

Still catching my breath from last weeks activities:lots of driving,studio visits, lectures, writing prompts,downpours and wet dogs. I managed some studio time- primed some new panels and filled a few #paintedpages in my #visualjournal #gouache #ink i think I’m in love with my #neonpink #acrylagouache #holbeingouache after all, the outside world is pretty grey these days

Success! Do you own any books with sprayed pages? πŸ“–
I am so happy that I successfully painted the edges of this book (that I was willing to sacrifice to this experiment) and can't wait to try it out with more books! It worked really well and I'm thinking about trying a galaxy the next time around...

A quick #flipthrough of my latest journal. New #watercolors by @janedavenport and a freshly started #moleskinejournal The fifth one so far this year. #paintedpages #artjournal #dailyjournal

Happy #goodfriday everyone. Can I start eating #eastereggs yet? When I painted this page the cat immediately decided to strut across it, so I incorporated her paw print into the design 🐾

Felix and I were both hard at work today! I did a lot of painting for commissions, and a little for myself too. I love painting books, but they can be a challenge to photograph. It's hard to show the book title and the paint job. So give me some guesses in the comments of what books I have in my press! Happy almost-Friday!

Quick post before I get to more painting! Most of the books in my previous post are still available, if you have questions on any of them don't hesitate to ask!
πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ
I just finished Ever the Hunted today and I really enjoyed it! It felt similar to other fantasy books but had a lot of it's own unique elements. I really related to Britta's emotional struggles with her love interest. Looking forward to seeing her grow in the next book!

What are you looking forward to reading in April?

Extra post! I’ll likely be posting another photo tonight, but I had to share this picture because I forgot to say something in my giveaway post yesterday! Every bookmark, at least the ones for the characters I know something about (and the bookmarks I get to) will have sketched and painted designs like the ones picture here! β€’

β€’
These are my Harry Potter character bookmarks, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Sirius. Also featured is my gorgeously painted copy of the sixth Harry Potter book from @sammaybereading! β€’

So go enter my giveaway if you haven’t yet, because a lot of the bookmarks will have little designs like this! β€’

Gifted to me by one of my Sam’s @sammaybereading , is this beautiful painted pages edition of THE RAVEN KING by @maggie_stiefvater It’s so freaking PERFECT. It also ups my TRK count to 4 various editions. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ What can I say? I cannot get enough of the #gangsey β €β € I’ve been feeling like I need to take to the road and head out for an adventure. Something calls to my very soul and it’s absolutely crushing to constantly be working, and feeling like I’m not getting anywhere. β €β € What are you looking forward too this year? I’m hoping to visit and meet up with more of my amazing bookish friends. I’ve already met Sam, Danny @bookteafull Alex @captain.valour and Erika @latenightreading β €β € #theravencycle #paintedpages #maggiestiefvater #booksandart #book #enlight #bookstagram #bookish #becauseofreading #booknerd #booky #biblophile #booklover #bookphoto #letsreadyall #bookphotography #reading #bookrecommendation #read #instabooks #youngadultbook #literature #booksofinstagram #bookworm

Hope everyone is having a fun bookish weekend! I met one of my author idols this morning, Victoria Schwab, and it was delightful. I also heard Patrick Rothfuss talk and he had some super interesting things to say about writing, therapy, and mental health.
✨✨✨
I am supposed to be reading Heart of Iron right now for the #bbblucky readalong, but I just haven't had time to get started. I painted my copy though, because books are more fun to read when their pages are pretty πŸ˜„ DM me to commission your own painted book!

Happy Friday! And Happy Wondercon to those joining me in Anaheim this weekend. These are all the books I am bringing to get signed. πŸ˜… I packed 1 bag of clothes, and 3 of books so, priorities!
πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š
I am excited to meet these authors and other Bookstagrammers too! If you look real close you can see a copy of This Savage Song I painted. I can't wait to meet VE Schwab, she's the author that got me back into reading. You can except lots of fun photos over the next few days!
πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š
Huge thank you to all my new followers from the past couple days, welcome. Since you probably joined due to my work on the Illuminae books, please DM me if you are interested in your own! I do all commissions through Bookstagram right now, though I may open an Etsy soon. Let me know if your interested in a painted pages store!
πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š
QOTD: if you could have tea with 1 author and 1 book buddy who would you pick?
