VIDEO: Flowers And Graphite Junk Journal Page

Sometimes your junk journal page doesn't turn out the way you thought it would does it? I mean it is not like I had a plan for this junk journal page that I am sharing today, but I didn't think it would go the way that it did! Just as with last week's DIY art journal pages, I have also added in some graphite later on in the art process and have a few different techniques for you to try out on your next junk journal page. I am…

VIDEO: When Doodles Go Wrong Art Journal Page!

  What do you do when doodles go wrong? I had one of those recently. I doodled away thinking all would be fine, I mean I was doodling with one of the best paint pen colors in the world! What could go wrong? Well a dodgy doodle, that is what could go wrong! Oh and you can see more of that paint pen in my recent paint pen video btw. You know the one where I doodle even more?

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…

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Process – Gouache and Acrylic Paint Layers

    This is a page of gouache and acrylic paint layers and it has been sat in my junk journal for months! Well, actually, it has been sat in my junk journal half finished for months, if I want to be accurate about it! This gouache and acrylic paint layers page started life as just a gouache paint experiment on gesso until I spotted it again this week and decided to finish it with some acrylic paint. But you can watch the whole gouache and acrylic paint layer process…

Sharing An Art Journal Theme

I've been doing a lot of drawing in my art journal recently. I have been using different kinds of Sharpie pens either on fresh pages or on pages that already had a few layers of paint left over from previous projects. I've been sharing some of my surface design patterns on my Instagram feed and I will be blogging them at some point. But in the meantime here are a couple of pages that I haven't posted to instagram as yet, they will be going up today or tomorrow! They are…
