A few art journal pages to share

Hi all!

I hope everyone is well!  I'm glad the weekend is here as the Man is home from work, and can take care of me, lol.  Poor him!  He has been really great this last week since my injury.  I am a very luckly lady.

After my first bath/shower with my new chair (so tiring!!) I got to go into my art room and pick a few things to bring downstairs to do some couch art.  I was trying to do a few things earlier this week and was getting super frustrated without my gesso.  :)  I will be posting a video later tonight on my little stash I got going on here, should be interesting. 

Here are a few pages I've been able to finish:

Just This

I've been working on this page a little here and a little there, never really happy with it.  I finally let go and called it done last night.  I really love those Melody Ross cards, I put one here on the top right.  They are from GCD Studios, I have a few different types of the embellishments shown.


This is a little different from my regular style.  On the left page I used coloured pencils to make multiple circles.  I then scraped white acrylic paint over them.  I like how the colours still peek through.  I then stamped some lips a few times.  On the right page I drew a coffee cup with water soluable charcoal pencils.  I'm still not comfortable sketching or drawing, which is what the spread is about.  I like how the cup turned out though, it could be simply because I'm addicted to Starbucks.  :)


I wasn't sure where I was going with this last page.  The border strips/patterend paper are from Graphic 45 again.  I am having fun with this company's products, so vintage and fun.  These are from the On the Boardwalk collection.  I used my Red Pepper Adirondack paint dabber quite a bit.  I just love Ranger products in general.  I was inspired by the lovely Julie at Balzer Designs during one of her Prima Ustream classes to hand cut my title.  I definately need some practice, but I am happy with how it turned out.  I think I went a little bit overboard with the swirls on this page.  :)

Have a great start to your weekend everyone, and don't forget to check out my Youtube, I am having way too much fun with these vids.  :)
