Mixed Media More: Collage

Welcome to a new series in which I'm going to be (hopefully!) helping you make more art, specifically more mixed media art. As someone who is constantly mixing media—including collage, acrylic paint, and inks of all kinds—I'm in a situation where I have combined enough art supplies to be able to anticipate the reactions of different media when they are used together.

ArtSnacks: November 2018

Each “menu” in an ArtSnacks box has a call to action, which is called the ArtSnacks Challenge. It asks subscribers to create a piece of art with the supplies that are included in the box. For this month, I created a drawing of a pomegranate. I sketched with the MegaGraphite pencil, painted with the acrylic gouache—using my Galeria paintbrush, of course—and used the Microperm pen to add texture and shading to the art.

Vlog: New Moleskine & Kuretake Brush Pens and Markers!

Have you ever discovered a new clothing store, walked in, and said, "Now this is my style?" Everything in the place just screams your name, and you'd turn the store into your closet if you just had the cash to buy it all out? Well, that's how I feel about art supply stores. I don't really care to shop for clothes, but paintbrushes, acrylics, pencils—now that's my style!

Art From May '17 Vacation

finally got around to photographing all of the art that I created during the wonderful vacation that I took in  May! This first image is of many different spreads that were (mostly) created while en route during my trip. For occupying myself during the car ride, I took my Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers (click HERE for my review), some black pens, and a small set Copic markers to pair with a Moleskine sketchbook.

Season of Color!! (Blog Hop)

he Creative Team for the art journalling community Get Messy is connecting today to celebrate Season 15: Color! We are sharing spreads today from our personal art journals...featuring specific colors of the rainbow! I am sharing a yellow page with you today, the happy color of life, warmth, and enlightenment.

Finished Spread: Overgrown

Today's art journal spread came about in under 24 hours, which is quite a feat for me to accomplish in a space of 11" x 19"! There are quite a few elements to this page that I've never created before, and are now happily added to my artistic arsenal! The color palette is one, but the use of a radiating ombré is really where I've taken notice.

Live Recap: Celebration

t began with one page painted pink, and one page painted brown. After the acrylics were dry, I went to town with more matte acrylics, iridescent paint, and collage material! There were two things that I had in mind when I began the is spread, one being a hanging banner with triangular flags, the other being Neapolitan ice cream; these were items that I saw yesterday which cause me to think, that would be good for journal fodder!
