Special Guest Spotlight on SUNILA MAHAJAN

This Hello everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend doing something arty!

This month, we are very pleased to feature Sunila Mahajan as our second Guest Designer for July.  Sunila was one of our February 2022 winners and is also now one of our new Design Team

We invite you to get to know Sunila a little better through her interview below.  Please also visit her social links which are listed in her Artist Bio.

Artist Bio 

Hello everyone, my name is Sunila Mahajan, and I live in Bangalore, India. I was born and brought up in Nairobi Kenya, and moved to India after I got married. This has given me the opportunity to have experienced two different worlds, cultures and though process, and unite them in one.  Alongside Painting, I developed a liking to Mixed Media, and have been doing that for about 9 years.  I am an artist who paints from the heart and this is conveyed in my work. Texture and rich colour are my style.

 I enjoy using mixed media mediums- inks, pigments, stencils, stamps and textures creating one cohesive whole. I now enjoy creating art journal pages because they give me the freedom to play with colours, try out techniques, and still piece it all together as a single story. Apart from that, I enjoy creating cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, home décor, altered art and paper crafting.   I enjoy creating and inspiring those around me and I hope I’m able to do the same here too.



Q & A with Sunila

How long have you been art journalling?

I’ve been art journaling ever since I began my mixed media journey. So that would be 8-9 Years.

Are you inspired by a particular artist or artists, if so, who?

I would say my fellow artists always inspire me. People here on the team, and other mixed media artists like Nuneka, Tracy Hickman, Natalie Horlacher, Natasha Pfiffner Vacca, Asia Marquet are some of my favourites.

What is your favourite type of art supply or product?  

My favourite art journaling products would be Lindy’s Magicals and Sprays.

What's your favourite colour palette to use? 

It’s hard to pick a favourite colour palette, it depends on my mood and if I have a challenge in mind I create for. So I pick my colours according to that.

And finally, why do you enter art challenges?

Oh I love entering set challenges! They always inspire me and give me a starting point to creating. They help me churn my juices and play on the pages experimenting and exploring. I also feel they help me evolve as an artist in my journey.


Sunila's Interpretation of our July Main Challenge

'Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters', this quote inspired me to create this page. I was inspired by the idea of time and the time it takes for a butterfly to become one.

The whole process is so wonderful, isn't it? 

I've used watercolour technique on my page, to colours the page and the elements with my favourite Lindy's.


Thank you Sunila for sharing this beautifully watercoloured art journal page with us!  We hope that Sunila's take on the Main Challenge inspires you to enter this month.
