About this page: We are still following the prompts of Journal 52. This week’s prompt is magic. For the page I wanted to do something a little, “magical” by allowing the colors to “pop” from beneath the black. I love the scratches around the black circles. That technique has always been magical to me!
Time for the another art journal class – Art Party Wednesday with Tiare and it’s going to be artsy! As usual, I will be live-streaming tonight in my pajamas, starting at 8pm est. I am excited to continue sharing my art with you. I hope that you are planning to join me. There’ll be crafting, laughter, chatting and fun! And it doesn’t matter whether you are a scrapbooker, art journaler, mixed mixed artist or card maker, the techniques I used can be applied to ALL! So be sure to tune in!
If you are planning to join the party, here is what you will need:
The inspiration piece and the color scheme from above.
Did you miss me yesterday? I had a wonderfully busy weekend (pictures coming soon). All the fun, left me exhausted and I did not create and I did not post. However, now I am back with a few things I had not shared on my blog and a simple philosophy that you will hear again and again from me. Here it is:
You do not need a ton of supplies to create and make beautiful pages! I like challenging myself to use 2 or 3 items only in my art journal to see what I can come up with. Not only does it take the stress away from feeling the need to use “everything” but it also helps me to use my products often and in different ways, learning how they act or react with different products. I can use acrylic in so many ways! Yay! Here are a few recent pages.
What is the smallest number of items you have used on a page?
Creating quick and easy art is one of my goals for daily creativity. I like being able to do something, even if I only have 15 minutes. I’ve said it before, prepainted backgrounds are AWESOME. I love creating backgrounds. I personally think it is one of my strengths. Having a few pages ready to go, helps me to get in a little creativity in a little time. I can just open my journal and doodle, paint, color…whatever I decide.
Last night, I did a quick ink doodle. Afterall, it is Inktober! Inktober, is a challenge to artists to draw with ink each day during the month of October. Now, I cannot promise that I will use ink only but when I do create I typically have ink included. These 30 day challenges are meant to keep you practicing and improving.
