Journal52 – Silly Animals

IMG_4178Another art journal page using a prompt from Journal52.com, this time it’s WK24 and the prompt is “Silly Animals”. For this page I’ve cobbled together some royalty free images from some copyright free resource CDs that I have to put together my collage. I’ve tried to stick to a blue/green colour palette for this page with white and black accents.

If you’d like to see how the page was created and put together, please feel free to watch my process video below!

Have a creative day!

Journal52 – Small Success

IMG_4172I’m playing catch up with Journal52.com, this is for WK23, the prompt being “Small Success”. The night before doing this page I had a dream about ink splats. The kind a psychologist uses to see if you’re going mad! So I’ve taken that as my prompt for the style of this page. I’ve used a warm collection of colours, oranges, reds, copper and gold.

I like the symmetry of this page and the organic look of the focal heart shape. Unless you can see other things lurking in the blotchy shapes!

 

Hope you enjoy the process video.

Have a creative day

Art Tag – June

TAG-MAIN

It’s that time of the month again when we join in with Tim Holtz on his 12 Tags of 2015. June’s tag is all about finding different ways to create the same effect. To see Tim’s tag tutorial click here

I’ve created my version using similar effects, but as always in a different style.

Mixed Media Canvas – Explore – Class Sample

01c85f59cb2ed605087cbfe2051ff1d52cdcd4a4c5I’ve been booked to teach a mixed media class in a few weeks and I’ve been asked to send a sample of what the people attending are likely to expect to create. After looking around my craft room to see what I could send, I’ve discovered that all my canvases are far too big, so I’ve created this 5×7 canvas as a display model that I can post off.
