At Christmas I made my very first video of a flip through from a December Daily Junk Journal I made.
Here is the link if anyone would want to take a peek:
After Christmas I got the bug to organize my studio a bit and start dabbling in done painting / doodling again.
Here are a few things I played around with : Some watercolor illustrations
Doing a painted paper using acrylic paints , to use for collage , etc
Here is a link if you would like to sign up.
It's keeping me in the creative frame of mind while setting up my own planner....
I was also re covering my Bible, ... I redid the cover on a composition book for my new journal and redid the cover on a doodle tablet. A black paper one I doodle with white gel pen in it.
I also made some splashy papers for collage or to use in my DLP Project ... I will need to put a very thin coat of clear gesso or matte medium in them since it is watercolor ,
I even played around with my Paper 53 app and my pencil ( stylus)
And ........ A FREE GIFT FOR YOU
I used watercolor and created a " TO DO " List.
All you need to do is right click and save to your computer and print it out whatever size you want.

Hello Everyone ! It's been awhile ....You all know from previous posts, how I am on a new creative journey....painting .... I'm loving it so much, but just had to submerse myself in some primitive folk art...
So....I based these 4 original mixed media paintings...These are all Cute Americana themed with a whimsical folky animal in each...
Two of them are painted on Paint board...a thick cardboard with water color paper coating...
the other two are painted on canvas...
all are 8" x 10".....

Spring Bird Sampler Doodle
Cute primitive folk art bird doodle , for rug hooking, punch needle wool applique or stitchery.
I modge podge old papers to the background, threw in some folky colors and started to draw a chunky bird...
I used all water soluable oil pastels for this.
this one I also did all in my pastels....not Primitive or folk art but i'm loving the brighter pastel shades and even purple....lol
Then here is another page i did on Saturday.....
Hope you are all enjoying pleasant weather and creativity......

My second one was done using wax paper and acrylic paint to print the leaves....I painted the leaves on the wax paper then etched the veins with the end of my paint brush...gives them a nice textured look.
The middle of this is a design of mine that i printed off and cut into pieces. I chose this section to use as the base..... I'm going to make a smaller journal full of more pieces like this one...
So, there we have that...I've kept busy...
Have a great night..it's late, so you are probably sleeping and wont see this till morning, in that case....Have a great day !!!

I'm trying to incorporate my more primitive/ folk art style in with the whimsical almost abstract that is commonly identified with this wonderful art journaling.
The term " art journal" is appropriate for what I'm doing. I'm on my own little art journey , having so much fun and keeping it recorded in my pages.
Love what you are doing ...
