I Have a Secret…

… Well, maybe not so much a secret, but something I haven’t talked very much about.  You see, I have been taking an art journaling class this summer.  It is the BOD/BOM class with Effy Wild… and I am enjoying the different techniques she uses (and there are a LOT on every page).  There is one of each type of spread per week, for 18 weeks.  We are on week 10.  But, I have been working on it very slowly.  I have been taking a lot of other classes this summer, so this one has been squeezed in.  So I have only actually finished 2 spreads.  And there is the reason I haven’t talked about it much.  But, now that the fall is here and things are calming down, I am hoping to have more time to work on this class… so, here is a look at my first 2 spreads* (more to come in the near future).

So, are you doing any art journaling this weekend?

Happiness and Joy

This is an art journal spread I did a while back for one of Jeanne Oliver’s Classes.  It was lots of layers, and focusing on the positive (happiness and joy).

Failed Art Journal Page?

So, a while ago I was working in my art journal.  And I mostly liked it.  But I felt that the pictures really stuck out, and I wanted to make it have a more ‘blended’ feel.  So I decided an over all stamp on the whole page would do this.  So on a red and green page, I chose to use white.  Rookie mistake.  So, not sure what to do from there, I put it aside, and have been brooding over it for months.  Here it is…

A red hot mess… So then one day it hit me.  What about an all over glaze? I could use a neutral colour, and bring the extremes closer together.  So I mixed some liquid gloss with a tiny bit of white paint, and covered the entire page.  And it did make it more cohesive.  But it washed everything out.  So I re-wrote the quote, outliked the pictures and added some doodle.  I am still not completly in love with it, but I think it’s much better.  And I learned A LOT of lessons I can use for next time… and isn’t that whaat it’s all about?

The After….
