Art Journals in Review - 2012


Art Journaling Fun...

My friend Kira has been visiting this week and it has been so nice to relax with our art supplies and just play!  I have been working on a few things but I finished this art journal page today.  I took pictures as I worked so you can see the process. I used gesso, oil pastels, spray inks, stencils, acrylic paints, washi tape, masking tape, pencils and pens, scrap papers, rubber stamps, staples and a cute little Instagram photo.

Have a  blessed day!



Blog Rewind - For Janet...

Originally posted October 14, 2007

I confess that I am a person of order and structure. I have always thought that I would have thrived in the military with its rules, expectations and order. I try to break from the comfort of this at times and do unexpected things and be adventurous, but at times I find that I am easily frustrated when things break from the norm or do not go as planned. I stopped to really consider this after I heard a quote this weekend while watching College Game Day on ESPN. I didn't catch the guy's name, but the commentators were talking about all the upsets so far this year in college football. The guy said, "If everything always went as planned, we'd all die of boredom."  Well said!


This page was inspired by a quote that I read recently:  "Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others." ~Unknown

Journal Page Elements:  Acrylics, stencils, glaze, black pen, spray paint, wallpaper, rub-ons, rubber stamps and collage element from Teesha Moore.

Have a  blessed day!

Quick Journal...

Book1 I decided to make a journal to take with me to El Salvador next week.  I pulled together a bunch of scrap papers and used my coil binder to secure the book together. I might take it apart later and add the pages to a larger journal.  I thought this format would lend itself well to that possibility.
