VIDEO: Easy Mixed Media Masks Revisited

 

It is time to get your spare pieces of paper out because today we are going to make some masks! I’ve got an art journal page to share and this one was started way back in March. If you saw my iridescent acrylic paint leaves video then you would have seen how this page started. I am continuing the page today, picking up from where I left off in that March video and finishing this page with a colorful abstract. And my favorite mask technique totally helped me get the page finished!

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure where this page was going to go, but I will let you watch the video to find out more! All the supplies are listed below and there is a close-up of the finished piece below too.

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Page Process – Random Face and Pattern

 

My mixed media art journal page share today is a little random! Well even more random then you would normally expect from me, or at least I think so! It has a random face and some pattern and mark making designs. I’ve used what was already on this junk journal page and added some images and more color to finish a mixed media art journal page that was started so long ago that I do not remember when I put the first colour down! It is kind of fun adding random elements to finish a page like this and highlight some of what was already there whilst adding new random elements!

So the close-up photograph is below as always, under the list of the products that I used to finish this mixed media art journal page.

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal – Make A Shaped Page

 

I was flicking through my junk journal looking for a page to work on when a little left-over page caught my eye. So today I have the making of a shaped page to share with you from start to finish. It is always fun to change things up a but isn’t it? The picture above shows the front part of the project with the shaped page closed, scroll on down for all the products I used and to see the inside of the project too. You will also get a better look at the shaped page itself in the photo below.

My working title for this project is ‘windows and doors’ as it has been inspired by architecture but I am wondering if I should actual call it ‘Dolls House’.

VIDEO: Easy Layered Acrylic Paint Abstract Art Journal Page

 

I have an easy art journal page for you today using different layered acrylic paint techniques. It is one of my ‘scrappy’ pages that I have been working on recently! Well I am kind of calling them ‘scrappy’ because they start from leftovers on the page and then they end up a little scrappy too, but hopefully not in a bad way! I quite like the textures all the layered acrylic paint gives to this piece. I also really like how the dry brushed paint picks up the stencil layer. I wasn’t expecting that as I didn’t think there would be enough physical texture there.

So have fun with your layered acrylic paint work today! And don’t forget all the products I have used in my layered acrylic paint piece are below the video, as well as the link to the ‘scrappy’ doodle page I was talking about in the video.

VIDEO: Easy Doodle Exercise For Your Mixed Media Art Journals

 

Do you fancy a quick doodle? I hope you do as I have an easy doodle exercise that I thought we could do together, so grab a colorful page and some pens and lets play! It’s a great creative exercise for warming up or for practising your art motifs and also for letting go and getting use to just mark making. Today’s exercise is also about contrasts and using them to great effect in your art so look out for all the contrasts that you can make and use on your page.

As always there is a list of the products that I have used under the video and a close-up of the page. And if you need some more help with what to doodle perhaps my video about art motifs might help! But above all just have fun with it and I can’t wait to see what you come up with, all my social media links are below so do link me in on any of your easy doodle exercise project shares!

VIDEO: Intentional Art – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

 

Do you remember my video on Sunday when I talked about, and showed you, an unintentional art journal page? Well today I have the companion piece to that one, but this one is an intentional art piece, in fact that is what I decided to call it, ‘Intentional’. So I have been thinking about my creative processes again and I’m hoping that my describing them and the different ways that I create can help you when you think about your processes. Sometimes it is helpful to think about your process and work out what works for you and what doesn’t and what you need to do more of or less of.

And also I hope that it helps you to worry less about if the way you put your mixed media art journal pages together is some how wrong or missing some magic ingredient, as there are lots of creative processes and your creative process is great and yours to enjoy! Don’t forget that all the products used today are listed below as usual!

VIDEO: Unintentional Art – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

 

Ok, so this is an odd one. I had started my day full of those noble intentions, you know the type of thing? I had plans, deadlines and things to get done and look what happened instead! Some unintentional art! I don’t know how else really to describe it, everything about this page is unintentional. But you will hear all about my unintentional art in the video. When was your last piece of unintentional art? And what were you meant to be doing instead?

Ho hum, I will get those other videos I mentioned done, I promise! In the meantime enjoy this one and as always I have the products used in the video listed below and a close-up of the final page too.

VIDEO: Drawing With Ink – Art Journal Doodles With A Fountain Pen

 

Do you use a fountain pen in your art journaling and if you do what ink do you use? Recently I have been doing more fountain pen art. I really love the feel and flow of using a fountain pen. It is great for doodles and also for sketching too but I wanted to find out if I could use it in my art journaling as I haven’t yet tried it in my journaling until today. Have you used your fountain pen in your art journal? Let me know, I would love to hear your experiences!

Now if you are into your fountain pens then you might know that finding a waterproof or truly water resistant ink for the fountain pen is quite hard. So I am trying out one today and sharing the fountain pen art results in my Wednesday art video. Plus I have some general art journaling tips for you too, so it isn’t just all about the pen and ink!

As usually I have listed all the products used below the video and there are links to other videos that might interest you too at the bottom of this page, so just scroll down.

VIDEO: From Art Journal Fail To New Art

 

 

I warn you this video starts with a rather nasty art journal fail! I mean it is ugly. A catastrophe! A mistake! A mess! Don’t say that I didn’t warn you! But don’t worry because I save the page and make some new art from the mess and I hope that it puts you in the mood to revisit some of your own not so happy pages. I am also kind of hoping that it encourages you to not be too over critical when you do fail. It happens, it is no big deal and you learn so much from it too! So own your mistakes and go out there and make some great art from them.

 

Pep talk over! Let’s do this thing! Oh and don’t forget that there is a close-up of some of the details of the new page at the bottom of this post.

VIDEO: Art Journal Process – Easy Flowers And My Thought Processes Behind This Page

 

You know when you have half an idea in your head but you aren’t really sure where it will take you? Well this easy flowers art journal page is definitely one of those! I thought I would take you through my full thought process for how this easy flowers painting art journal page came into being and I really hope that hearing about some of the decisions I made and the thoughts in my head as those easy flowers developed will help you appreciate your own art process and some of the decisions that you make when arting.

You can even walk through this make and see what decisions you might have taken, if you would have done the same or something completely different. I mean that is the fun of this isn’t it? We all look at art through our own eyes and bring to it our unique understanding and knowledge.

As always you will find a close-up picture of the finished page below the video, as well as the product list and a bonus product! I didn’t use it in the video but I did talk about drawing on acetate and if you need a pen for that then you will find it listed below!
