Art Journal Page: Feel it

Hi ho, lovely readers. It occurred to me recently that I’ve kept myself so busy with art class lessons, I haven’t taken the time to integrate the lessons into my work.  My primary art goal for 2017 is Integration.  Today’s post is the start of an art journal page I’ve been working on. I used 2 Dyan […]

My Hiro

I’ve been brewing a mixed media project that tells a story using my dolls. I’m still working through the details, how do I want it to look, how to incorporate photos and hand drawn art…do I want to do extensive digital photo manipulation, how much of the words need to be visible, etc. I’m starting […]

Pebble Girl

    The Gimp-speriments continue. I have a pebbly obsession. I like them. Fortunately, I can now virtually pick them up with my camera. And merge them with one of my journal pages. I like the pebble texture. It almost looks like it’s the paper. What are your experiments? Leave me a comment and tell […]

Life Book Weeks 1-4

As I mentioned in the last post, I signed up for Life Book 2015 after completing Tam’s mini workshop, Summer Girls, near the end of March.  Although it means that I need to do some catching up, I chose to work through the lessons from the beginning.  At the writing of this post, I am just beginning to work […]

Mermaid Circus Week 6

The two lessons for Week 6 of Mermaid Circus is Working Dark and Sea Nymphs! Both of these lessons were done in my large, hard bound journal. Working Dark uses Jane’s Tissue Transfer technique, collage, acrylics, pencils, pens and draws, as you can see, from deep sea creatures, which I love. Many are very odd […]

Radiant Faces Part 2 Lesson 7

Part 2 Lesson 7 is Effy’s take on Jaime Doughterty’s Dreamer.  I really liked the idea of transferring my Part 1 Dreamer onto one of my art journals, so I did. I added some collage that included the 3 places my on-line art teachers reside: Canada for Effy, England for Tamara and Australia for Jane. […]
