Not too much going on in the studio right now. I’ve posted a page I am working on in an old journal. I’m working on priming some pages in a brand new book. This is the boring part, right? I have a couple more pages to prime and then I’ll stitch them all together. That’s […]
A couple more finished visual journal pages. Both for a round robin I am in. Not sure now, looking at the ‘Secret’ pages if I need to go back and do a bot more. Hmm. Some open spaces I think might need ‘something’. I’ll sit on it a night or two. 😉 The ‘Secret Family […]
Been working on some round robin journal spreads this week. Top design is for the ‘Malice in Wonderland’ themed altered book. It’s been fun messing around with a darker theme. Bottom is for an open themed journal. I’ve used those handy dandy carved lino stamps I did awhile ago and then painted the girl with […]
Here’s a finished spread in my personal art visual journal. It’s the last one to finish before I do the cover. Top image is closest to the true colors in the book. The second I included because I loved the colors the Hipstamatic photograph put on it. It really enhanced the blues.
A couple visual journal pages for a round robin I am in. Bottom skeleton hand incorporates a stamp made by another artist for a stamp swap we were in. Ironically, it’s her journal I am working in so I thought it would be cool to try and use her stamp. Top piece has a lyric […]
This is another altered book spread I’ve been working on for a ‘Dark Art’ round robin I am in. The book’s theme is ‘Malice in Wonderland’ and it examines the word ‘Malice’. I found a cool quote by the writer Taylor Caldwell, “I have been the victim of heartless malice”. I began by prepping the […]
Here are a few more pages of the journal I’ve been working on. Big fun. I’m enjoying working on paper again.
2 Visual Journal Cards. I drew these quite awhile ago, but only just got around to painting them. The card ‘Honestly’ was in reaction to a friend losing a long loved dog. The dog was really old (17 years) and the last time she came over to play with our own dog she’d seriously gone […]
Sketchbook collage. Got some new pink paint (so NOT a fave color of mine, but I wanted to expand my range of colors a bit) and a cool new Frida Kahlo stamp which I bought from stampcamp.com.
“Rule #1 – Be Wierd” I’ve been taking a class on travel journaling with Jackie Ernst. I wasn’t terribly interested in learning to journal while traveling, but I was eager to hang out with some like minded folks. It’s been fun. It’s good to go back and learn the basics like contour drawing. I pretty […]
