NaNoJouMo 2015 (Art Journal Page - "Express Faith")

Another super quick page for NaNoJouMo 2015!

 Today’s page was inspired by this tag I found in my stash. I like it so much, I wanted to make a page for it.  
How I Made the Tag:
This tag has a very water-y blend of Dina Wakley’s Magenta & Lemon paint. They make this gorgeous orange color when they mix.
After the water paint was applied (very haphazardly), I applied the magenta paint thru a Heidi Swapp circle stencil.
I then stamped a flower stamp with teal ink over the background.
I stamped my focal flower on watercolor paper and fussy cut it.
After it was cut, I colored it in using Watercolor pencils.
I sewed a piece of book page and a strip of painted deli paper together and grouped everything on my tag.
The final step was going over the edges with a black ink pad.

  1. You have a wonderful "sense?" of colour, and as for your writing, I love, love, love it.

  2. Thank you so much! I used to create everything with a color wheel next to me, but now I don't need to. So this is a true compliment. As for my handwriting, I've been working on wiring in a way that I can like my handwriting, so thank you for that too! 💖

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!
We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
