Art.Paint.Journal.Play... Perspective

Hello there! Welcome to the second installment of my new video series, Art.Paint.Journal.Play!

For this spread, I played with lots of fun stamping, embossing, and pen work. Then, I covered it up and played some more!

I had more fun playing with all of these messy fun supplies!

I'm also sharing this over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and you can see a full project photo and supply list there!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!

Ombre THIS!

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

Now, before we get down to the challenge details... I have a bit of news. The past several years on the Simon DT have been beyond amazing! Always fun, always inspiring. Ah... but change is in the air and new opportunities are on the horizon! And, I have lots of ideas for more classes to put together too! So... it is time for me to step down from the Simon team and this will be my final challenge with them.

Alrighty! Enough business talk... let's get crafty!

We are talking all things Ombre this week and I decided to put a new ink pad to the test to create a fun and fall inspired tag...
Isn't that wood leaf fabulous? It's even better with some ombre stamping, yes?

And with some more inky fun and doodles..
Here is my final tag!

Happy Fall!

Art. Paint. Journal. Play... A Cover

I recently posted my new Art Journal, complete with decorated cover. I had more fun working on this and guess what? I filmed it! YAY!
In fact, this is a bit new for me. While I love working on mixed media, doing collages, and even tinkering with art journaling here and there... this is the first time for me to approach an actual, store bought journal with the intention of filling all the pages with inky fun play.

So, what does that mean for you?
A new video series, of course!

I intend to film myself each time I work in this journal. I won't be narrating these videos, simply just fast forwarding and adding music. This really will give you a peek into what I am doing, while allowing me to just focus on the process and not so much on creating a teaching style tutorial. 

I, of course, will blog about each little video and will give you more details there. But, the videos themselves will just be a short, musical glimpse into my attempt at "official" art journaling... if there is even such a thing? Well, of course not! Art journaling is art journaling, official or not. HA! But, I think you catch my drift, yes?

Alright... so enough chatting! Here is that video:

Fun, yes? As you can see, I approached this without the idea of filling up the entire "canvas." This is key for how I work. I have learned over the years that I am much happier with my finished piece if there is a good deal of negative space left over. What else is notable about this cover? Lots of white, lots of pen work, a bit of stamping, and plenty of watercolor. That's how I roll, people!

Thanks for stopping by and i'll see you soon!
