Special Guest Spotlight on ADITI MAHAJAN February 2023

 Hello everyone!

This month, we are very pleased to welcome Aditi Mahajan, who was one of our fabulous July
 2022 winners

We hope you enjoy her take on our February Challenge and do please visit her Instagram which is linked below, and also our social media channels to watch the Guest Designer video! 

Artist Bio

My name is Aditi, and by profession I work as a Psychologist and Healing Professional. Over the years, I've taken to art as a form of therapy, and am working towards a more holistic approach of healing. I've been creating Mixed Media Art for about 8-9 Years now. My Artsy name is Dots to Lines, and both my mom and I had created it for our artistic pursuits.

When it comes to my style, I'm always attracted to deeper meaning of life and emotions and I connect that to my art and my creations. Therefore, every project has a story to tell. I use vibrant colours and splatter that denotes freedom and spreads radiance. I enjoy paper crafting, creating layouts, journal spread, tags, canvases, albums and altered art. I enjoy art journaling, and I intend to create journal kits and run workshops in the near future. I want to make art journaling accessible to everyone as a form of mindfulness activity, without having to worry about being an artist. According to me, art journaling is a great tool for self-expression and I want to share that with people around me.

Q & A with Aditi

What is your favourite February memory?

My favourite memory goes back a couple years when my mom and I visited USA, attended creativation and explored several cities together. 

How long have you been art journalling?

I've been art journaling for years. About a decade to be precise.

What is your favourite colour palette to use?

I love purple, blues and teal.

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

My mom, Sunila inspires me. Apart from her several Mixed Media Artists (the list is never ending) like Nuneka, Asia, Martina, and my Design Teammates

What is your favourite supply or product?

After my watercolour journals, are Lindy's Magical. I love the freedom they give me to play with colour.

Why do you enter art challenges?

Art challenges are a way to feel inspired. They help me churn ideas and get the juices flowing, since they provide something challenging to think about, conceptualise and create. When I began mixed media, it was art challenges that helped me meet fellow crafters, get to know about brands and above all grow. 

And finally, In my art journal, I have always wanted to try...?

I've always wanted to use  watercolours and create an astral self-portrait.

Aditi's Interpretation of our February Challenge

Aditi says:  Love Letters inspired me to create a romantic page in my journal. This is more like a teenage diary entry, fresh in love documenting the beautiful moments. 

I've added elements like flower clusters, tags, a planner card to mark the first meeting, first date, first kiss, etc., and sentiments to go with the vibe.

 I used my favourite shades of purple and a collection from Craft O'Clock Collection- A Little Inspiration since I felt it had the perfect colours and elements I needed for this page.

Thank you Aditi for sharing your romantic journal page with us. We really loved exploring all the elements on your fabulous page.  

 We hope Aditi's fantastic take on our challenge theme inspires you to enter the February challenge!
