Creative Ice Breaker – Morning Art Journal Play Video #7

In the mornings I play in my art journal to get myself into the creative groove and break the ice – so to speak- and get ready to paint. I recorded and fast forwarded my morning ritual for this video – and hope you enjoy it. Take it as what it is – a morning art journal play- not a tutorial.

I hope you enjoyed the little glimpse into my morning warm up play! Have a wonderful and creative day!

    Thank you for sharing this Nat, I tend to think too much about what I’m doing and my “art” suffers for it. I am so controlled at times that I really need to “let go” more. Watching videos like this one are a good reminder for me. Have a terrific week!

In the mornings I play in my art journal to get myself into the creative groove and break the ice – so to speak- and get ready to paint. I recorded and fast forwarded my morning ritual for this video – and hope you enjoy it. Take it as what it is – a morning art journal play- not a tutorial ? – BTW- I had to buy a new camera and as you might see, I am still trying to get used to it. I learned a lot about it during the video- so bear with me on the bit of a weirdo-focus-color-format journey in this video – I promise it will be better next time.

    how do you contain the spray on the Liquitex sprays? I must be doing something wrong. I love your use of the layered stencils and stamps….I’ve really grown to love the elephant set and use it a lot of the time.

      Hi Ruthie, I shake the bottle at least a minute before using it and make sure that the nozzle is free of spray. I usually have no problem with it, unless there is some dried in areas around the nozzle. Do you have that problem with all sprayers and caps? I also find that it is easier to control if you are a further away. If you are spraying very close you are spraying very forcefully to one spot but it will result in a big blot rather than a fine mist. I hope this helps a bit :) Glad you hear you love the elephant set- share with me some time what you did with it :)

    Wow what a great way to start your day kind of like stretching before your morning run. I really enjoyed your video it was very inspiring. I can’t seem to find my way into mix media. My style is to controlled and stay in the lines. I guess I just need to be brave and jump in. What do I have to lose right. OBTW you ARE the best, best colorer lol tfs!

    Enjoyed watching your video. Loved the way you made
    such a pretty, colorful background. Have never tried journaling – not
    so ‘artistic’ as you, but I do like doing mixed media on canvas. TFS.
