Art Journal Page - "Keep Moving Forward"

I learned two things while making this page; not to give up on a page and Dylusions Paints and acrylic glazing are not friends.


After I covered my page with paints, I added a black glaze. Ideally, I wanted it to catch on the modeling paste and grunge it up a bit. Well, it seemed to react strangely with the Dylusions Paints. The Lemon Zest turned this odd grey color. It seemed to me like the Glaze seeped into the paint and discolored it. Although, I only really noticed this reaction happen with the Lemon Zest, maybe because it is a lighter color. I might experiment with the orange and red Dylusions and see what happens.

I had a plan for this page and It really threw me off when this happened. I decided to walk away for awhile, because I was about to toss the whole page completely.

I didn't get re-inspired to work on it until about a month later. But, I am glad I didn't just throw it away because I ended up really liking it.





I also learned how delightful the Dylusions Paints and the Dina Wakley Media Paints are together. It's like they are made for each other.

  1. Your final product looks great. I love everything about it. I'm having trouble finding the name of the stencil in your supply list that you used for "art helps me breathe." What is the name? I definitely need to get it. I think we have the same taste in stencils since I own all of the other stencils you used here.

    1. I completely missed putting this stencil on my supply list, so thank you for bringing this to my attention.

      It's called "book text" and the brand is Heather Kindt: Art Ambassador. I got it from Donna Downey's store but unfortunately I just checked and it's sold out. Here is the link to it tho: http://www.donnadowney.com/products/12-x12-stencil-book-text

      I checked Heather's Etsy shop and it looks like she's sold out of it currently, too. I couldn't find it anywhere else. Sorry :/

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.
