Join me for my  Art Journaling Demystified Class!

This class is for everyone who wants to start art journaling and wants to learn the basics on how to do this.

In 3 hours of video lessons divided into 6 Lessons, I show and demystify for you

  • what kind of art journals are out there,
  • explain the basic supplies,
  • and color theory,
  • backgrounds and
  • layering techniques and
  • how to finish up an art journal page.

During the lessons you will learn a lot about all kinds of materials, mixed media, how to create texture and design principles.

I will share with you why I’m doing things, how I got the idea and what works and what doesn’t seem to work.

Sign up now for Art Journaling Demystified starting May 1st, 2015 .

Looking forward seeing you!

I am the Boss of Me …or In My Art Journal Today

Attn: You are not the boss of me…I am the boss of me and my art

Hach …isn’t art journal an awesome way to get stuff out? I just told someone in an interview that art made me a calmer person and part of this is because I can let out a lot of things through my art :)

This page is actually a page that was a demo page in tow different classes and then I finished it up at home.

I so love the Liquitex Cadmium Orange Hue 2 – so vibrant. I scratched through some blots of spray paints with the bamboo sketching pen, which I had also used with black acrylic ink to outline the woman on the page. I also used a needle point canvas star with the spray paint- fun – love the pattern this creates – also when you flip the stencil later over.

Here is a supply list:

Hope you have fun creating today!!!

    Ahhh – orange is my fav. Would you believe I have always loved it. Forty-three years ago it was orange gingham for bridesmaid dresses – hehehehe!!! Have to get some of your hue 2 orange Nat! Great colors in this project. Your sentiment is so true. Seems I always have someone telling me how to see what I see – which is not what I see at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great work. Have a super fine weekend. j.

Don’t be a Later …or In My Art Journal Today

Note to myself: Don’t be a later

I am such a huge procrastinator sometimes – for fear I might be failing big time. I am telling myself, I can do this later. In some parts of my life I am a huge later. Time to be a NOW ;) I used to be a NOW – LOL- and it lead to all good things ;)

The lettering for the NOW was done with some wood blocks and acrylic paint. Then I used Liquitex Markers inside to pop it up a bit and outlined the outside of the letters with a fineline applicator which I had filled with Liquitex Soft Body Paint and some drops of Liquitex Ink . Love the fine and dimensional effects you get this way. The woman’s face is a stamp I carved.

Here are the supplies I used for this spread

Have an amazing day!

    Now is good Nat – it spells WON – backwards!!! At to me… you are always a WINNER at everything you do. I like this pages because of there is lots of white so your incredibly artistic doodles show up so well. The colors are nice – clean – like a new beginning – no build up – open – free – ready for a NEW NOW! j.
