It's all good!
My new personal project is my zine "Evidence." Basically I keep a journal using only black and gray inks. In it I sketch, doodle and write about the stuff going on in my life and head. I then scan it and turn it into a PDF and load it up to Etsy. This issue is twenty five fat 8.5x11 inch pages of my journaling. You can print them and make copies so long as you give me credit.
Head on over to Etsy and check it out.
Issue #3 is here. I'm so excited. They keep getting better and better!
Hi Everyone,I was wondering if anyone has tried the new line of Golden High Flow acrylics. What do you think of them, especially how they compare to the Golden fluid acrylics and even how they might compare to any of the acrylic inks out there. I have used the fluid acrylics, but haven't tried high flow yet. Thanks! KathyContinue
This is probably not the place , and I apologize for that, but could someone tell me how to post?I have a PC, a regular camera and an IPhone, I would like to share my work as I would like to be a more active member but I am computer challenged and I would like some help. Perhaps this issue has been discussed before, so some wonderful member can point the way.Continue
I have been using a lot stencils lately. Though I enjoy the commercial stencils, I would like to make more of my own. I have made a few, but sometimes cutting can drive me around the bend. I have a heat tool used for stencil cutting, but sometimes that can be a little maddening as well. I have been looking at die cutting machines that can cut stencils, but I'm not sure if it is only pre-programmed images included in the machine or downloaded from the product site, or if you can actually scan…Continue
I have never used or heard of these before. I saw a tube video about them but is it like oil pastel? Does it stay greasy ? Can someone tell me what their experience with these markers? Can you put anything over them like an acrylic wash or a pen? Do you have a favorite color making tool? Continue
I plan out my more scrapbooky travel journals, do some theme journals, but I also have my spontaneous ones.Do you plan your journal pages? If so, how much? Do you limit supplies or techniques in advance? Do you pre-paint? Do you sketch the page layout? How much does a prompt/photo/or other primary image define you page? Is there some other way that you plan your journal pages?Or… do you pick supplies and techniques randomly? Do you have a starting idea? How do you feel about less defined and…Continue
Hi there y'all... I am Marit and I came to join this community in November 2010... I was pretty active too and my gallery filled up with art journal pages... but last Spring I fell in a 'black hole' - a lot of problems had come my way and it just build and build... and then I just shutted down and suffered from a burn out during the past months. I had a really rough and lousy Summer and still I face a lot of changes and difficult times ahead, but I am mentally doing better and getting there...…Continue
hi...i am new to art journaling & have been using packing tape as an image transfer technique with so-so results. i think the trick is keeping the image down to minimal sizing. for larger images what techniques work best? i have been reading about Golden Matte Medium & Xylene, although the latter seems pretty toxic is does yield pretty, ethereal results.anyone have any experience they can share?Continue
Hi everyon my name is Carol and I only joined in the last day or so but am wondering if anybody was interested in doing a junk journa lswap. I'm thinking of doing it like a scavenger hunt type journal where you find the items amongst your stash of art stuff or scrapbooking/cardmaking stashes,when you have them all collected together, you then put them into either a hand made or store brought journal and swap with your assigned partner to see how they have done their journal and to get new…Continue
Beginners welcome!Tags are a fun swap. The twist this time is they need to be ready for the recipient to write-on and add to a journal page. Any thing works for this one as long as you can write over your design. It can have lines as writing guides but this is not required. These are meant to be finished (or nearly finished) tags that someone can use right away. Theme: any theme as long as your design can be written on top of.Media: any media is allowed. Please use a fixative if you are using…Continue
