Kind of New to Journaling

Started by Carmen Lajam in Introductions. Last reply by Carmen Lajam on Tuesday. 3 Replies

I started Art journaling last summer because i started taking a class in school. I always use to sketch on random paper and loved working with clay and other media since i was little. Although i love art i always lack confidence in my own. I can point out a million mistakes in one piece even when it looks great. I like to journal because it's personal and it makes me feel more comfortable with my work in general. I'm hoping to learn many things and i'm eager to be on this website.Continue

New art journaler

Started by Janeen Brown in Introductions. Last reply by Marit Barentsen Feb 19. 2 Replies

Hello fellow artists! I've spent the last year pinning posts about art journaling on Pinterest, while making ATCs and hand-made Project Life cards. When my best friend started art journaling, and using MY Pinterest board for inspiration, she called me out about not actually starting a book of my own. I bought a journal, and created my first page, the cover, and another page, and now I'm completely addicted! As soon as I figure out where to post pictures, you'll see my pages! In addition to just…Continue

I review 7 different companies of sprays in a number of different colors including flat and shimmer. I sure learned a great deal playing around. I’ll review them based on pigment quality and density but I make other comments as well.Dylusions: Most intense pigmentation. Color are bold and bright. Spray is heavy and solid. Flat with no glitter or metallic.Adirondack: Good pigmentation. Fairly good spray. Workhorse spray. I wish I had bought more of this than the ones below.Tattered Angels…Continue

Shout Out from Muncie, Indiana

Started by Lenella Maxwell in Introductions. Last reply by Ann Thorsen Feb 16. 2 Replies

Hello! I come from a background of not necessarily art, but one of where we recycled, reused, reupholstered many things when I was growing up. It was fun, it saved a lot of money, and there was satisfaction in giving new life to things. I also sewed most all my clothes except the undies and a few items like that. I loved that artistic outlet. I crocheted, knitted, did macrame' , made jewelry and did anything to be self sufficient, such as gardening, etc. Everything was an artistic outlet for…Continue

A year in art journaling...

Started by Marit Barentsen in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Marit Barentsen Feb 3. 4 Replies

Hi girls (boys?) - I noticed I overflow the art gallery lately by uploading the complete 'Chronicles' pages from the last year... I'm sorry if it made you feel overwhelmed but it's done now, all weekly pages of 2014 are now in the gallery and I hope I don't need to upload that much in one time again this year but put it here once I made something...There's not much going on though, I don't see people uploading new art. What are you all up to? I would love to see YOUR pages too!!!Continue

Rubber stampers?

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Material Techniques. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney Jan 21. 27 Replies

I love them for their recognizable immediacy. Now that I do mixed media I worship permanent ink pads because my stamped images can be worked over with wet media or stamped on top of anything reasonably smooth.Are you a collector? Or just own a few? Do you carve your own? Or use “found” objects to stamp with? Do you prefer old fashion rubber, cling or clear stamps?If you have stamps that are gathering dust maybe we can inspire you to pick them up and use them. Post your questions and feelings…Continue

Art Journaling Adhesives

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney Jan 21. 13 Replies

I’m going to cover some collage and mixed media adhesives in this thread. I mostly do collage but I do stick all sorts of things down including plastics and fabric, even twigs and tea bags. Using the right adhesive for the job is key to getting good stick-tion and long term results. I’ll start with my favorite paper adhesives first.-------------------------Tape runners changed how I do found paper collage (my primary medium). Wet glue is so messy and often bleeds through papers -- resulting in…Continue
