NaNoJouMo 2015 Day #9 (Art Journal Page - "Texture")

Today's NaNoJouMo 2015 page has a lot of texture products.. A LOT. I joked on my instagram that I put 80lbs of texture products on this page and its never, ever going to dry. Haha.

It did. But it took more than 24 hours.

It is really cool to see how the different texture mediums (media? I never which is correct. haha) react with paints.

Oh, and clearly I am not following the prompts. I am too pressed for time to have to check a prompt everyday. I get an idea and some time and I just roll with it.

So my ongoing prompt is, "just make something". Haha.

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.
