Art Journal Page – Imagination (time lapse video)

The more art journal pages I see, the more I find I’m attracted to those with really bright colours.  I searched for some reasonably priced neon acrylics and bought a small pack of Artists Loft acrylic paints at Michael’s.  I wanted to test them out and this page was result.  I was hoping for an opaque finish but these are only semi-opaque (transparent).  I’m still happy with the results though.  They are still very bright, even after they dry.  I also wanted to use up some of my old supplies, like the rub-ons and flower embellishments.

I’m happy with how this one turned out.  Not every page needs to be a finished piece of artwork.  Sometimes the pages in our journal are experiments with new supplies.  Each page is a learning experience.

Thanks for watching!  A list of supplies is below along with links to Amazon for purchase.

Art Journal Page – Nevermore (time lapse video)

With Halloween approaching, I’m continuing with the gothic theme for this page.  I have had this wooden stamp featuring the raven from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem for a long time, and finally found a place to use it.  Once I came up with idea, the page came together pretty quickly.  Have a look at the video below to see how it turns out!  Supplies used are listed below the photos at the end of this post and some can be purchased through my Amazon Affiliate store (links provided).
