Scribble Sticks Ganesh Art Journal Page Dina Wakley Large Media Journal

Hello,

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend. For this Saturday’s art journal share I am showing a page from my Dina Wakley large media journal. This week I just felt like going big and really spreading out. It also gave me a chance to play with some of my larger 12″ x 12″ stencils, which I don’t get to use that often. For a while, I had been feeling an urge to do a large spread with an elephant on it, in this case, a Ganesh image. It just felt right and I love how it turned out. Below for your viewing pleasure is my link to the video on my youtube channel, some still shots, and of course, my list of supplies used. I hope this page will get you to dust off those large journals and just have a weekend play. Happy journaling!

“Inner Whispers” Art Journal Wednesday

“Inner Whispers” Art Journal Wednesday

The last week or so has been pretty stressful. I’ve been very busy in my day job, and I’ve had some testing going on for my cancer screening. It’s just my standard yearly maintenance/follow up, but it weighs heavy on the brain as anyone who has dealt with cancer will know. Needless to say, my mind has been abuzz with those pesky “inner voices”. Those little words of worry and stress. Therefore, I decided it was time to shush them up and turn the negative into a positive.

This week’s art journal Wednesday page was inspired by this. Unlike my typical videos, there is no talking. I just closed my studio door, turned up the toons, popped on the camera, played, and this page was the result.

I used my large Dylusions journal for the first time. I love the paper. I also used Dylusions paints, a stencil from Mike Deakin Art and some digi downloads from Mike Deakin Art. There is also some use of Art Foamies created by Art by Marlene.

Here is the link to the youtube video:

Art Journal Wednesday Circle Journal Quote Page

For this Art Journal Wednesday I had fun playing in my 8″ circle journal. I enjoy doing pages that are quick, so I can fit them in throughout the day and get a bit of art and me time.

This particular page revolves around a new stamp I purchased from Darkroom Door. I found it at my local craft shop, and it reads “I am creative, you can’t expect me to be neat too!”. Doesn’t that capture our essence as art journalers? After this page, I was covered in splatter, and it felt wonderful.

So be sure to check out the video here to see all the fun, and I’ll list some of the materials I used it.

April Mid Month Mission Inspiration Challenge “Move”

April Mid Month Mission Inspiration Challenge “Move”

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Once again this month I come to you with a challenge art journal page from the Facebook mission inspiration group. This time we have the April mid month mission inspiration page. The mid month ones are even more of a challenge because instead of a list of prompts you get one word to use. This really gets the creative juices flowing. With spring in the air I wanted to use some vibrant colors, so with a little collage and some Dylusions paints, this page came to life.

This is what this month’s mid month challenge was:

You can watch how I made the page in my video:

Here are some stills of the page:

 

Thanks as always for stopping by and happy creating!

April Mission Inspiration Challenge

April Mission Inspiration Challenge

One of my goals this year is to try and do more art journal prompts or challenges.

A great way to do this is to join Facebook groups that have art challenges or monthly prompts.

To me these sort of challenges will help me grow as a journaler because I will learn to combine things I hadn’t thought to and it pushes you.

One group i’m in and have fun with is the Mission Inspiration Group by Mike Deakin

This is what this month’s challenge was:

Here is what my version of these prompts turned out like. I had a lot of fun, loved the colors!

You can watch my process video and see how I did this on my youtube channel:

Mini Art Journal Page: Hamsa Hand Artfoamie

Mini Art Journal Page: Hamsa Hand Artfoamie

Hello,

For this Wednesday’s mini art journal page I have a piece of Hamsa art. It is inspired by a new Artfoamie I got from ArtByMarlene: Hamsa Hand.

This is another great easy, quick journal page. It took me under 20 minutes and filled that creative need for the night.

Here is how I did it:

1. I started with a 4″ x 6″ (10.16cm x 15.24cm) piece of mixed media paper.

2. I had some gelli prints I had been making using craft paint and Dina Wakley’s new scribble sticks. I cut out a piece of deli paper with the gelli printing on it and using matte gel medium, I glued it to the page.

3. I dried the page with my Ranger Heat Tool.

4. I then took one of my custom mandala stencils and used the Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide thru it with the Tim Holtz
Blending tool.

5. I then put out a little of the Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise paint on my gelli plate and rolled it out, I stamped my Hamsa Artfoamie into it, then added more paint from the roller.

6. I then put the Hamsa Artfoamie on the paper and voila beautiful print.

7. Next, I dried it with the heat gun again. To make the teal stand out, I went back to my Distress Oxides and grabbed my Peacock Feathers Blue and edged the paper with the blending tool.

8. Then I went and dug out some of my Tim Holtz Small Talk quotes and picked “Live, Create, Tell The Story” and added that to the piece.

9. Last step I had to get my scribbles in so using my Pilot Black Multi Ball pen I added a border.

Now I have another piece of small art in my mini journal that will continue to inspire me.

I hope this piece will inspire you as well. I linked to some of the items I used in case you see something you want for your collection.

Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day!
