Now and again I need to post out some Thank You cards, so this time I decided to make my own using watercolour card, some tissue paper my Neocolor II crayons and an old book. You can see how I created these cards in the video below.

Have a creative day!

Art Journal Page – Autumn’s Fire

With the changing of the season, the colours of leaves on the trees start to turn to rust. I celebrate the colours of the Autumn season with this mixed media art journal page rich in Autumn’s golds, red, browns and oranges. The quote (paraphrased) is by Irish poet William Allingham.

You can watch my process from start to finish in the video link below.

I hope you have a creative day.

Summer’s End – Mixed Media Canvas

It’s Creative Arts Collaboration time and this month we’re celebrating the end of summer and the colours of autumn (or fall depending where you are in the world). This month I’ve jumped out of my comfort zone and used a medium I haven’t used for a while and never captured on video!

For me autumn for me is all about browns, reds, oranges, yellows and golds and seemed perfect for this canvas. I hope you enjoy the process as much as I did creating it.

Have a creative day

Dictionary Art Page – Octopus (Part 1)

01c40e5e4697da75bb89de03ab7204f5c580cb3b52Today I’m playing in my dictionary art journal. I have to say it is quite addictive due to how easy it is to just open the pages and be inspired! That and being able to use such great colouring mediums like the NeocolorII crayons and Inktense aquarelle pencils so easily with a waterbrush is a huge bonus. It means you can create a great looking page without a lot of preparation or mess. It’s so suited to creating in short bursts or when you are short on time but get that creative urge!

I’ve filmed my process once again, hope you enjoy watching the page come together. It isn’t completely finished, as I ran out of time, so will be adding to the page at a later date, so keep an eye out for Part 2.

Oh and a 9 tentacled Octopus is not unheard of in nature and is called a Noctopus. I just thought I’d share that!

I hope you have a creative day

Mike
