Soul Book Club #4!

Good morning!

I hope you are enjoying my weekly Soul Book Club series! This week, I am happy to announce that week 4 is ready for your enjoyment!

I a really having a lot of fun recording these sessions, I think it is getting a little bit easier. I have been doing this process for a few years, but I am experimenting with how to go about teaching others how to play in your Soul Book, as well as how use your Soul Book as a tool to help you get from where you are to where you want to be, and to ultimately live an authentically creative life, in your own manner!

This week’s Soul Book journaling prompts:

  1. I feel happy when…
  2. I feel sad when…
  3. I feel peaceful when…
  4. I feel most myself when…
  5. My favorite childhood memory…
  6. My favorite memory as a teenager…
  7. My favorite memory as an adult…
  8. What is one area of my life needing attention?
  9. What is one area of my life that is doing amazingly? How did you make it amazing? Can you translate that to other areas of your life?
  10. If there is something that you have putting off, but you know you really should do it, what is that thing? What can you do within the next 10 minutes to take action on that thing?

Please feel free to copy and paste into Word or Pages, and then you will then have the ability to change the fonts style, colors, size, etc. I give you permission to use this list however you would like, including removing prompts, adding prompts, or even just wiping the entire list out and starting over!

I really do hope you are getting some goodness out of my weekly Soul Book Club videos!!

Thanks so much for watching!

Art Journal Thursday #24!

It is better late than never…

I am happy to announce that my Art Journal Thursday video has been posted out on YouTube!

The supplies I used this week were:

  • White gesso
  • Art Advantage Acrylic Paint: Permanent Green Light, Phthalo Turquoise, Cerulean Blue
  • Dina Wakley Media Stencils: Halves, and Spinners
  • Dylusions 5×8 Stencil: Circles Small
  • Black Stabilo Pencil
  • Finalize Bottle filled with white acrylic paint
  • Punchinella
  • M. Graham & Co Titanium White Acrylic Paint

DSC06872This week’s page is actually really simple, but I love the way that it turned out.

DSC06875I was really excited to get started on this week’s art journal spread because this was the week that I got to start in my crisp, clean, new art journal!

DSC06881My new art journal is a Strathmore 400 series, 8.5×11 watercolor paper journal, and I am just LOVING the size! It is so much more manageable than the art journal I just finished, which was a Strathmore 500 series 11×17, I think!

DSC06880

 

The pages of this journal aren’t quite as smooth as the last journal, but I think I will be able to enjoy myself so much more, now that I don’t have the pressure of trying to figure out to cover such a large spread! So YEAH FOR THAT!! 😉DSC06883

I am LOVING all of the textures that this background technique has created!DSC06889

I also really LOVE the colors that I have chosen for this page – ACTUALLY, it was my hubby who chose blue and green – his favorite colors!! Thank you, Sweetie! 😉DSC06897

I also am really enjoying adding art journaling to my spreads!! It has kind of become a game to see if I can figure out a new way to journal on my page each week! I really like the circular journaling though…might be my new fave! 🙂DSC06887

So, even though this page was really simple to do, and actually came together rather quickly, I am really very happy with how it turned out!  I think that this new journal is off to a great start!! I can’t wait to see what comes out next!!!DSC06894

 

What do you think? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!! 🙂

Also, if you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating! Also, I really do LOVE answering any questions you may have about art journaling, mixed-media, or anything you might have seen me do here! Please feel free to ask questions in the comments, and I will try and get back to you in a timely manner!!

Until next time!

Here is to a BEAUTIFUL CREATIVE life! 🙂

Art Journal Thursday Video #21!

Good evening!

I am very happy to report that my 21st Art Journal Thursday video out on YouTube!

The art supplies I used this week were:

  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Decorative Tissue Wrap: Postale
  • Uhu Glue Stick
  • 3×5 Gelli Plate
  • Blick Studio Acrylic Paints: Cadmium Orange Hue, Primary Red, Phthalo Green
  • Apple Barrel Acrylic Craft Paint: White
  • Brayer
  • Art Advantage Double Ended Stylus
  • 5 Miscellaneous Wood Mounted Rubber Stamps: one is from Great Impressions (3 concentric circles), one is from Inkadoo (Carte postale), one is from Delafield Stamp Company (XOXOXO), one is from Hero Arts (Painted Circle), and I am not sure where the last one is from, but it is the one with small doily design
  • Ranger’s Black Archival Ink Pad
  • Black Stabilo All Pencil
  • Uni-Ball Signo White Broad Pen
  • Scissors
  • Scarlet Lime Black Doodling Pen

DSC06797When I started this week’s layout, I was determined to try something that I had felt failed miserably last week; and that was creating a background using my 3×5 Gelli Plate.

DSC06801I felt like the reason this didn’t work for me last week was the fact that I didn’t limit myself to a selection of a handful of colors. That background ended up being so busy that there was no way that anything could stood out on its own in the foreground. This time I made sure to limit my colors to just three, not counting white!

DSC06808As I was laying my color down with my Gelli Plate, I started seeing this layout as kind of a paper quilt, which made me start thinking about my mama, and my grandmother, and all of the strong women who came before me. It made me really happy to reconnect with those memories, and to understand just how blessed I am that I come from such a long line of really strong, and AMAZING women!

DSC06805Thinking on the women of family, also made me think of a favorite song from my childhood, that has a way of popping up in my life at exactly the right moments. This song is called “This Little Light of Mine”. It has been showing up a LOT in my life over the past year, and it again this week. It reminds me that I need to shine my light, which is where my my sentiment came from this week. You may be the only light in the world someone sees today, make sure you shine bright!

DSC06812I think this background turned out much better than my attempt last week, hands down! This week’s attempt has inspired me to try this again, but this time on an art canvas! I am thinking that this might be a really cool background for a new piece of artwork that I can hang in my new office at work!

Also, if you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating!

Art Journal Thursday #20!

I realize this is better late than never, but I am happy to report that my Art Journal Thursday #20 has been posted out on YouTube!

The art supplies I used this week were:

  • 3X5 Gelli Plate
  • Brayer
  • Blick Studio Acrylic Paints: Titanium White, Phthalo Green, Cadmium Orange Hue, Green Light Permanent, Primary Red, Primary Blue
  • Dina Wakley Stencils: Mod, Organic Shapes, Halves
  • Dylusions Stencils: Circles Large, Shattered Large, Triangles Large
  • Huey’s Mask Stencil: Bubbles
  • Liquitex White Gesso
  • Dylusions Spray Inks: White Linen, Vibrant Turquoise, Calypso Teal, London Blue, Fresh Lime, Cut Grass
  • Apple Barrel Acrylic Craft Paint: White
  • Uhu Glue Stick
  • Black Stabilo Pencil
  • Blue Stabilo Pencil
  • Ranger’s Archival Black Ink Pad

DSC06772If you watched the video this week, you might notice that I was really struggling to get this spread to a point that I was happy with!

DSC06777I also, generally, frown on completely whiting a page out and starting over…I usually am a firm believer that every spread is salvageable in some way or another! So, when I finally hit day three, try three, and I was still feeling really stuck, I knew that whiting the spread out was going to have to be my solution this week!

DSC06780Although I felt the need to completely white out my backgrounds and start over, I really had fun just playing with my Gelli Plate and playing some with a few new stencils!

DSC06789My final attempt at this spread, which is the one that I was finally happy with was so much fun to create. I think the reason that I felt I was finally successful was that I finally got out of my own head, and started to really just go with the flow! I think I was having so much trouble because I was overthinking what I was trying to do…I have a tendency to do that at times! 😉

DSC06782I also think that where the genius of this spread shows up is in some of the close up photographs! I can say genius, right??? Yeah! I can do that! I just LOVE all the yummily-scrumptious color combinations that unexpectantly showed up!

DSC06793I also really LOVE the very textured background that was created by all of the layers that I had inadvertently created with all of my ugly background tries! It has resulted in a very tactile friendly kind of spread, which I surprisingly LOVE!

DSC06786See what I mean??? This green and blue are just AMAZING together!! I love the pop that it creates!

DSC06795And somehow, I ended up with a few speckles of a deep burgundy, red – I am not sure how that happened, but I am really LOVING that too!! 😉 So, all-in-all, I think that after more than a few heartbreaking tries, this page turned into something that I can be very happy about! 😉

What do you think? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this week’s art spread!! 🙂

Also, if you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating! Also, I really do LOVE answering any questions you may have about art journaling, mixed-media, or anything you might have seen me do here!

Art Journal Thursday #19

Good morning! I am happy to announce that my Art Journal Thursday Video #19 has been uploaded out on YouTube! 🙂

The materials I used this week are:

  • White Gesso
  • Dina Wakley Mixed Media Acrylic Paints: Lime, Turquoise, Sky, Magenta, Lapis, White
  • Baby wipes
  • Dina Wakley Media Stencil: Essentials
  • Ceramcoat Acrylic Craft Paints: Green, OJ
  • Folk Art Acrylic Paint: Medium Yellow
  • Finalize bottle filled with white acrylic paint
  • Uhu Glue Stick
  • Uniball Signo Broad White Pen
  • Black Pilot Permaball Pen
  • Ranger Archival Ink Pad

DSC06743This weeks video is rather short and sweet. That is mainly because I lost part of my video footage in the beginning…oops, sorry about that! In case you missed how I got this page started out, I coated my spread with white gesso by using a palette knife to scrape white gesso all over my spread and letting that dry completely. I then used three of Dina Wakley Media Paints to add color to my page, and before those colors dried, I used a stencil and baby wipe to pull some of the color up through the stencil. As I added another color, I made sure to overlap some of the previously stenciled areas to incorporate all of the colors together, and then continued with my stencil technique. I kept doing this until my spread was color!

DSC06745That is why my video today begins!

DSC06749I really like the way this spread turned out, at one point I wasn’t exactly sure where I was going with it! 🙂 But as always, it usually seems to turn out exactly as it is supposed to, and I really love it! 🙂

Art Journal Thursday #18!

I am happy to announce that my Art Journal Thursday Video #18 has been posted out on YouTube!

This week, the supplies I used were:

  • Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paints: Tangerine, Lime, Magenta, Sky, Turquoise, Lemon, Lapis, and Blackberry Violet
  • the circular Dina Wakley Media Mask from her Graphic Shapes set
  • Baby wipes
  • Fineline bottle filled with black acrylic paint

DSC06728This past weekend, I was very excited to have gotten the opportunity to take 5 classes taught by the lovely Dina Wakley, over a three-day period!! I learned sooooooo many new skills and techniques, and I am just raring to start incorporating them all, but for today I thought I would start by showing you all how to do a very simple technique that not only had I not seen before, it was one of my favorites!

DSC06733You choose a mask or a stencil, something with not too small of holes, as well as not too large of holes either!

DSC06727Spread a thick layer of acrylic paint to cover a surface roughly the size of you mask/stencil.

Lay your mask/stencil over the thick coat of paint, and rub all excess paint off with a baby wipe. (Many baby wipes, actually!) While you are doing this, you will transfer color onto your spread from the baby wipe – that is alright, just make sure to overlap your background colors to make it look intentional and to incorporate all of your stencil shapes together.

DSC06741Just keep repeating this process until you have as many stencil/mask designs that you want! Make sure you do not clean your mask/stencil as you change from color to color. Part of the coolness of this effect is the color transfer that will happen when you go from color to color!

DSC06734I hope you get a chance to give this technique a try!!! I KNOW I will do this one MANY times over!!! 😉

DSC06738What do you think? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this week’s art spread!! 🙂

Also, if you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating! Also, I really do LOVE answering any questions you may have about art journaling, mixed-media, or anything you might have seen me do here!

Teaching Mixed Media Techniques: Eclectic Backgrounds Class

Good evening!

I hope you all had an excellent weekend! My weekend is Sunday and Monday, so I am just now coming to the end of my weekend, and it has been pretty relaxing!

Before my weekend ends completely, and I get back into the hubbub that has been my filled-to-the-brim weeks, I wanted to share with you how my mixed-media art class, Eclectic Backgrounds, went this past Saturday!

DSC06459I was very excited about this class! This was my first, for pay, class!! I was also very nervous because I knew it was going to be a small class, which actually turned out to be such a blessing!! My first students were Sharon and Lynette – they were so MUCH FUN to have some play time with!!

DSC06456Because I was so nervous, I was planned to the ‘T’, however, I have a confession to make…I thought the class was supposed to be 3 hours long, and it turned out I had only scheduled it for 2, which meant we had A LOT to cover in a VERY SHORT amount of time!!DSC06447 Thankfully we not only got it all done in time, we all really had a GREAT time!! That is what I was hoping for most of all! 😉DSC06445We learned and practiced 6 different mixed media art background techniques! We even had enough time to get all 6 of our samples turned into handmade journals that we can take with us and play with when we got home!DSC06455I made sure to bring some of my art journals and some of my artwork to show how the backgrounds we had created could be added on to make completed art work either in art journal or art canvas form!
DSC06451 These are some of my whimsical faces AKA “Long Neck Girls”, I am teaching a class on this technique in February and March of this year!DSC06450I will be teaching a repeat of this Eclectic Background class, on January 21st, from 1-3 PM, at Runaway Art & Craft Studio here in Salem, Oregon. So, if you missed out on this first class, and would like to join us for the next one, please either leave a comment in this blog post below, or e-mail me at beautiful.creatives@yahoo.com to get more information!

Thank you to Sharon and Lynette for being so AWESOME! and for Kelsey at Runaway Art & Craft Studio for cheerleading me on so well, while also taking pics for us!!! This place is really becoming my home away from home!! 😉

As for this week, I am teaching another later this week for a private party! This time I will be teaching a gaggle of teenage girls, which I am sure will be a LOT of fun! I will make sure to share pictures from that fun evening too! 😉

Until then! 😉

Here is to a BEAUTIFUL Creative week! 😉

Weekly Art Journal #11

Good morning!

I am very happy to announce that my Weekly Art Journal #11 video has posted out on YouTube!

The supplies I used on this week’s layout is as follows:

  • #2 pencil
  • A couple of different kinds of erasers
  • Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tissue Paper – Postale
  • Uhu Glue Stick
  • DecoArt Acrylic Craft Paint: Tropical Blue (DCA102)
  • Premier Prismacolor Pencils: Sepia (948), Burnt Ochre (943), Dark Brown (946), Peach (939), Beige (997), Yellow Ochre (942), White (938), Greyed Lavender (1026), Blush Pink (928), Lavender (934), Process Red (994)
  • Black Fude Ball 1.5
  • Black Uniball Signo 207 pen
  • Ranger Distress Stains: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Black Soot
  • A scrap of map paper
  • Faber Castell Gelato: Dark Green
  • Black Ranger Archival Ink Pad
  • Recollections Chevron Wood Mounted Stamp
  • Plastic doily stencil
  • Ranger Texture Paste
  • Palette Knife
  • Sentiment printed out on regular printer paper
  • Brown Stabilo All Pencil
  • Water Brush

Unlike most of my weekly journal pages, I started out with an idea on how I wanted this week’s spread to appear. I knew that I wanted to draw one of my cute long neck girls, I wanted to use the Ranger Postale tissue paper, I wanted to use my favorite Tropical Blue craft paint, and I knew that I wanted to use my new Ranger texture paste!

DSC06274So the hard part was just going to be drawing my long neck girl, in it’s entirety, in front of the camera, so I challenged myself to see if I could keep the camera going the entire time, and not cut away, like I had done the last time I drew one of my girls for Art Journal Thursday. And you know what??? I TOTALLY DID IT!!! WHOOT! WHOOT!!! 😉

DSC06281I was extremely proud of myself that I didn’t chicken out and cutaway, but because I didn’t, it made for a very, very, VERY LOOONG video!! EEK!! So although I thought that the drawing of my long neck girl would be the hardest part, the hardest part actually turned out to be editing my video down to less than 15 minutes! WHEW!! 😉

DSC06271That combined with doing the voiceover, which you may know I am extremely new to, this was probably my hardest video to date, but I must confess I really LOVE the way this spread turned out! 🙂

DSC06278During filming, I did have some issues while drawing my long neck girl! Eyes are always rather tricky for me, and this week I see that her left eye is too far left for my liking, so I will have to keep working on that! I also had some trouble getting her lips to look just right! I have recently changed how I draw lips, and I think it is not working for me. I had better keep looking for a whimsical lip shape that makes me happy! 🙂

Practice! Practice! Practice!

DSC06280As for the background, I really LOVE this one! 🙂 The tissue paper, the messy chevron stamping, and the texture paste used throughout the round doily stencil all came together better than I could have hoped for!!! I am just LOVING all of the yummy patterns and textures!! 🙂

DSC06276I also love that I snuck the word “Courage” onto my long neck girl’s neck! Courage is something that I am consciously working on using more of, so this will be a gentle reminder to myself!! 😉

DSC06287As for this week’s sentiment, as I have said in past posts, I usually have a tendency to do my art journal pages in silence so I can hear any messages my soul might be trying to tell me. This week was no different. I have some hard choices to make in the next few weeks as it pertains to work, and I realized, during this week’s art journal time, that I have a distinct vision in my head about what I want to see in my life. Where I am living, what I am doing for a vocation, etc, and I realize that I am the only one who can take the necessary steps to make that vision come to fruition!

Life is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself, and not only that, but it is up to me to get out there and start creating it!! No one is going to do it for me!! So this sentiment summed that up for me, perfectly!! 🙂

DSC06286So, what do you think? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this week’s art journal!

Also, if you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating! Also, I really do LOVE answering any questions you may have about art journaling, mixed-media, or anything you might have seen me do here! Please feel free to ask questions in the comments, and I will try and get back to you in a timely manner!!

Until next time!

Here is to a BEAUTIFULLY CREATIVE week! 😉

Weekly Art Journal #8

Good afternoon!

I am happy to announce that this week’s Art Journal Video #8 is now posted on YouTube!

Here are a list of all of the materials that I used:

  • Black Medium Sharpie
  • Faber Castelle Gelatos: Red, Orange, Light Green, Dark Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue
  • Brush
  • Heidi Swapp Circle Lattice Stencil, 12 by 12-Inch
  • Liquitex Gesso
  • American Crafts Black Galaxy Marker – B
  • White Card Stock
  • Aleen’s Tacky Glue
  • Uhu Glue Stick
  • Black and White Washi Tape – I am unsure of brand
  • Black Stabilo pencil
  • Water Brush
  • Black Pilot Ink Pen
  • White Signo Pen
  • Fine Tipped Water-Based Sharpie
  • Fat #2 pencil – the kind that contractors use

DSC05876

Full confession…

I have been really under the weather this past week, struggling through a really bad cold! I think that the state of this spread shows that – at least to me! I really wasn’t feeling like arting at all, but I knew that I wanted to make sure that I kept this commitment, and I am learning that you may not always feel like doing something, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it just the same! So onward I pushed!

DSC05879

I was completely blank, so I decided to start by filling the spread with positive words! Not being a huge fan of my handwriting, I wanted to do something to hide my writing, and I thought that I could do this by covering the words with Gelatos. Gelatos are these really creamy, gel stick, acrylic paints, that when combined with water turn into a beautiful water color, but dry permanent, which I LOVE!

DSC05886

You may have also noticed that I was struggling with color selection, which is not something I usually struggle with, and let me just say that next week I am going to try and leave some white space on my spread! Anyway, as soon as I put down, what I thought was a dark blue, for my border, I wanted to quit this page! What a MESS!! However, I want to be able to show, not just to you, but to myself, that no matter what a mess you may run in to, there is always a way to work through it! So, I pushed through!

DSC05883

Then I decided to hand write my sentiment out onto card stock, which was fine, but I made a mistake. The pen I used to write the words, although says it is permanent, smudged as soon as I went to smudge the light blue Gelato that I had added to the words’ card stock! WHOOPSIE!!! Always know your tools!! 😉 I just rolled with it and did the same mistake on every word, so that way it might look like it was on purpose! I’m okay with it!

DSC05889

At this point, I just really, REALLY wanted to get this page done, and do it so that it at least looked like it belonged with my other art jouraling pages! I think I did end up doing just that! Even though, I can honestly admit that this is not my favorite spread, I am very happy that I did not give up on it! About halfway through I was ready to gesso the entire thing and start all over again, which I guess is a legitimate fix, but I really didn’t feel like having to start all over!

DSC05891

I also realized that my sentiment was absolutely perfect for this week! If I keep focusing on the good, and keep searching for it, I will find it! Even in this journal spread! So, I have come to the conclusion that even though my physical body is feeling under the weather, my subconscious is still as active as ever and trying to keep me on my creative path!! That puts this tired mind at ease!! It is the simple things in life that are the most important!!

DSC05881

If you have any ideas, or techniques that you might like to see me try in one of my future layouts, please let me know in the comment section and I will see what I can do to be accommodating! Also, I really do LOVE answering any questions you may have about art journaling, mixed-media, or anything you might have seen me do here! Please feel free to ask questions in the comments, and I will try and get back to you in a timely manner!!

Until next time!

Here is to a FABULOUS week! 🙂
