Creating An Artsy Brand?

Started by Brooke Turner in Everything Else. Last reply by Mixie Pixie Aug 26. 2 Replies

Hey Everyone!I haven't been here in awhile and I have missed the community. I have recently started developing an interest in posting videos on Youtube but one of my biggest issues is coming up with a brand name. Are there any journalers here who have a youtube account? How did you decide what to use? My name is fairly common so I don't think I could get away with using only my name.Thank you in advance!Continue

yupo

Started by semaj bloom in Introductions. Last reply by Mixie Pixie Aug 26. 6 Replies

Since Yupo is a polyurethane paper, can you substitute tyvek for it? I have a lot of tyvek and would love to use it with my watercolor or acrylic paints, and wonder if it has the same attributes as the yupo.Continue

looking for inspiration

I make something and if im not happy  with it i dont complete it.  I'm looking for motivation here if all these artists can do so, I can atleast try to make something and continue to do it. I like art journaling because it doesn't have to be perfect. I can do my own thing, make mistakes and be happy about my mistakes. it is wonderful that we can share our work here. Continue

The biggest paper source of all time is drying up!

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by ComfortableShoes Sep 11, 2016. 9 Replies

I kid you not! The biggest paper source off all time is drying up (sniff really sniff truthfully sniff). As a collage artist I was collecting scrapbook paper from the very beginning! I’ve hoarded paper with swimming pool water, astro turf, velveteen paper, foil brocade, tree bark, fish tank gravel… omg. I have six different grass papers! I’ve got this deep brooding vampire goth red background that I love. Don’t wait! Raid your local craft store (mine went from four aisles down to half an…Continue

The futility of junk journal definitions

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Melody Celestine Sep 9, 2016. 1 Reply

Art is this very general term about creative action. Art journals are this very general book-like surface where you make art. I get giggles about junk journals. Some are these obsessively designed, perfect, thematic confections using forgotten supplies. Some are tear it up and slap in down from the recycle bin..Really, who can say what isn’t and isn’t art without rigid rules that dictate everything from supplies to techniques to subject matter and more. Just look at the Impressionists, they had…Continue

Xyron Sticker Machine

Started by Kathy in Everything Else. Last reply by Kathy Jul 19, 2016. 4 Replies

I have a very OLD Xyron sticker machine - Xyron 500 to be exact.  I hadn't used it in ages until the last year or so, and had a spare cartridge hanging around.  Now it is used up, and I am not sure if the newer cartridges would fit the old machine.  Just wondering if anyone would know.  Thanks!Continue

White Pens!!!

Started by Penny Hazeldine in Pens, Markers, Pencils. Last reply by Leslie Sowden Jul 14, 2016. 12 Replies

Hi Guys.Can anyone recommend a decent white pen for writing/drawing within my journal?I am so fed up with trying to use a paint pen (of different varieties) that will write more than a couple of letters without 'drying up' or worse running into a huge blob that I then have to spend ages trying to undo the mess/damage it causes?All recommendations will be gratefully received!!!Just for the record I have had better luck with a chalk pen but it's neither permanent or very thin, ie suitable for…Continue

Collage Class

This informal group is open to anyone of any level or any emphasis. I only ask that discussion and sharing be about collage. If collage is a bit murky try this definition: sticking down papers as art. I’ll leave the experts to get fancy and confusing. Of course it impossible to be purists since mixed media is the vogue.See More
