Art Journaling into the New Year and Textured Art Journal Pages
2011 is a year of promise for me. It is the year I am turning over a new leaf so to speak. I am going strong on the 31 Day Art Room clean up challenge, and it feels great! It's absolutely amazing what you can get done in seven days. If I can do it, anyone can.
This spread is not finished. I love the background so much that I am having a hard time deciding what, if anything, should be added. I completed this live over on Ustream, you can watch the class when you have time.
I love pens! I dedicate at least on spread in every art journal to them. I also completed this live, and had a great time. I have the most wonderful viewers. I was practicing with my palette knife on these pages, I need to use it more to get the "feel" of it. I find it completely different from my regular old credit card for scraping.
Here are a few pictures of my January NOW tag as promised. For the story behind it, please watch my Youtube video in my last post. I am excited about this monthly challenge!
A close up of the wonderful texture. I dry and wet embossed on the background of this tag. I have a four part recording on Ustream if you would like to see the process. The background techniques are completed in this recording.
I'm off to work on my art room for a few hours. Wish me luck! Here is the progress in seven days:
Hope to see you guys tonight at my Ustream class! 9:30pm Eastern
