Mini Moleskine Art Journal Page - "Changes"


When I first got some of the Dylusions Paints, I’ll be honest, I did not like them. It was obviously user error, because everyone else made them look gorgeous. I just couldn’t get them to blend nicely and I didn’t like the colors without being blended. But, I was determine and after playing around with different applications, I finally found applying/blending with a baby wipe gave me the most beautiful blend. Now, I love them and cannot get enough.
 
This is a double page spread in my mini moleskine. I just had to play with as many colors as possible, so I chose to have cool colors on one side and warm on another.

 

I have to admit, after I applied the mask/stencil of the girls, I didn’t really know what to do. When all else fails, scribble journal! That’s what I call the scribbly, loopy version of writing that I like to do in my journal. It totally came together after that for me.

I took a quote from my “Words” Pinterest board and also added a few of my own words. I love having a bunch of quotes saved to my Pinterest to use at a moment’s notice.

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.
