Art Journal Love - TWEET...

I used a lot of different things on this page.  I created the base of the page with spray inks and stencils.  Sometimes I just create a bunch of backgrounds and come back to the pages later.  I had been sketching little abstracts, flowers and animals onto text papers and decided to use one of them by stitching it to the page.  I am still learning and experimenting with sketching objects, etc. and have found some very inspirational artists out there.  Check these out: my printspace on Flickr, pepeart, Ashley Percival, Miroco Machiko, Colette Copeland and Emma Kidd.

Supplies used: stamps, stencils, washi tape, acrylic paint, collage papers, pen, pencil and oil pastels.

Great layout! I love the pink flowers / circles and the yellow and orange bit on the bottom right hand side.

I love this page. I like how you use the pink and teal to make the page pop. Your layers always make me smile. I love how they seem so free.

hey friend: This is amazing! I am loving your work, as always. The birdi is SOOOOO cute! And I love how you describe that you start with one thing and keep layering etc, showing people that where we start (in life) it is ok to (add) (take away) (change) as our intuition speaks. Your art is such a great metaphor for the courage to do that! I love your soft beautiful colors (in fact just made some mists with the R-M colors, and I am loving your bold brunette R-M colors!!!! *hey how's that going!" I saw in your instagram a pic of a face. It was wonderful. Any thoughts of a course with your Mixed Media and sketching? It would be so much fun to take something like that (this - todays art) from you. Clearly, people respond highly to your art - You Tube says that! Later - Lovies, Samara

Hi Roben-Marie: A question for you. I have loved your workshops so much that I would like to know something. How much canvas is necessary for your canvas course. Also, Would you suggest Mixed Media Mahem or the Canvas Affirmations Course (both if money flew from the sky :( :) ! Thank you. Samara
