NaNoJouMo 2015 Day #4 (Art Journal Page - "Work")


Welcome to Day #4 of NaNoJouMo 2015
To learn all about NaNoJouMo2015 check out Dawn Sokol's site here:

Today I just wanted to play around with my Dylusions Paints. I like them best when all the colors blend together. I admit I spent a little more time than I had blending and blending. Haha. I just get in the zone sometimes.

When I got to the point where I picked the words I wanted to use in my journal, “value” stood out to me. Lately, I have been trying to think about things before I do or say them. I think to myself, “Am I adding value to this conversation or to whatever it is”. I love when things just come together like that!

I have been fortunate enough to be making the time every day to make an entire page in my art journal. I’m sure it won’t be that way all month long, but if it starts being a chore and feeling like an obligation, I will stop with no regrets.

In the meantime, I am having a blast getting in my journal every day and making some beautiful pages along the way.

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.
