Poppies and Tea Art Journal Page and a Mixed Media Class

Hello creative friends.  I hope everyone is having a good week.  My week is going well.  This week I have several art journal pages I created from a Craftsy class I took this weekend that was taught by Lindsay Weirich the Frugal Crafter and I have another art journal page that I created in my homemade journal.  Here are the art journal pages that I created from the Craftsy class I took.






I really like the way these pages turned out and I learned a lot about watercolors from the class.


Here is the Art Journal page I created in my homemade journal.  I decided to create a simple journal page using pictures of several different objects, a tea pot, a tea cup, a cupcake and flowers.  After sketching the items on my page and painting them with acrylic paints, I glued a picture of a poppy journal to the page.  




And here is the video showing how I created this page:




I like the way this page turned out and had fun creating it.  Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great week.  Until next time, Happy Creating.

Magazine Journal and Savannah, GA Drawings

Hello creative friends.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  My week has been interesting.  We survived Hurricane Irma, had lots of limbs to clean up and lost power for about 18 hours, but all and all we fared better than many others and am thankful for that.  If you were in the path of the Hurricane, I hope you and your family fared well also.  This week I have two drawings that I created using vacation pictures from Savannah, GA while waiting out the storm and colored them with colored pencils.  I also made a magazine journal inspired by Dede Willingham and created 2 art journal pages in the journal using acrylic paints and ephemera from my stash. Here are the drawings I created of Savannah, GA.





And here is the magazine journal I made and the 2 two-page spreads I created in this journal.








And here is a video showing how I created this journal and the two pages.




I enjoyed creating the drawings and want to do more.  And I had fun creating the magazine journal and the two pages and look forward to working in it more in the future.  Have you created a journal using magazines before?  Thank you for stopping by and watching the video.  Hope you have a great week.  Until next time, Happy Creating.

Cheetah Cactus Rose Art Journal Page

Hello creative friends.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I am having a good week myself.  This week I have another art journal page using pictures I found in my stash of a cheetah, a cactus flower, which I am calling a cactus rose but not sure what kind of flower it is, and a suite case.  I sketched the pictures on my journal page.  I then used watercolor paints to add color to the page and then Posca paint pens to add details.  Here is a picture of the art journal page I created.




And here is the video showing how I created this journal page.


I like the way this page turned out and had fun creating it.  Hope you like the video and let me know if you have any questions or have an idea for an art journal page that you would like to see me create.  Thank you for stopping by, until next time, Happy Creating.
