Xyron Sticker Machine

Started by Kathy in Everything Else. Last reply by Kathy Jul 19. 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

The biggest paper source of all time is drying up!

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Melina Grey Jul 16. 5 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

White Pens!!!

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

The futility of junk journal definitions

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else Jun 4. 0 Replies

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

Greetings from a new member!

Started by Deborah Long in Introductions. Last reply by Kathy Mar 20. 1 Reply

I'm a hobby artist and have always loved paper and all types of coloring media but I'm still fairly new to art journaling. I'm so thrilled to find and join this group. It's like I wandered into this fabulous place that is exactly what I was was looking for but didn't know actually existed. I've been cruising the gallery this morning and love all the beautiful artwork. So inspiring! I'll be sharing some of my work soon. I'm so happy to be a member here!Continue

Hi Ya'll!

Started by Elizabeth Roberts in Introductions. Last reply by Cat Slater Feb 6. 7 Replies

Hi... My name is Elizabeth, but my friends call me Lizzie. I don't know if I would call myself an artist but I've been practicing art all my life. Somewhere along the way I lost my inspiration and quit for a while. And about six months ago, after my separation, I saw my my daughter's watercolor pencils on the table and began to doodle and I haven't stopped since! Now its like I'm hungry for anything creative. I have especially fallen in love with art journaling and am eager to learn everything…Continue

Love to Art Journal

Started by Sonja Healey in Introductions. Last reply by Sonja Healey Dec 23, 2015. 2 Replies

Hi I'm Sonja and I am addicted to art. I love all materials, all media (as long as it's non-toxic!). I have several art journals in the works and I can't wait to share some of the pages with all of you. My style is very layered, although I am still learning how to add dimension to my pages (can't wait to hear your suggestions!). I love cool colors like blues, aquas, turquiose, purple, jade. I love surreal imagery and am starting to use unusual photographs from magazines in my art journals. I…Continue

Have I Found My Tribe?!

Started by Sherri Chinnock in Introductions. Last reply by Shanta Devi Dec 20, 2015. 5 Replies

Hello,       My name is Sherri.  I am so grateful to be in the company of others who seek to express themselves in this way.  As an artist I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to make great art.  In the past  I have  actually sabotaged myself  because I felt like I couldn't begin a project unless its was philosophically deep or meaningful, and above all  it had to be perfect.  It wasn't until I stumbled across a book called "Brave Intuitive Painting'" by Flora Bowley that I realized  Art…Continue
