If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. There is a flickr group for sharing right here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post. Thanks!
I've got some pages from November to show you. Eeek! November! I can't believe I've got such a backlog of art journal pages to show you. Let me know what catches your eye!
As I've mentioned before, I'm trying to push away from "pretty" faces.
My go-to white pen is the water-based extra fine point Sharpie.
You can see that the base of this page is a file folder -- you can just see the tab from the folder. I love working on all kinds of different surfaces.
You can see that I inserted a patterned transparency into my art journal. It acts as a very pretty divider between the two halves of the art journal spread.
I often like to include markers of the year in my journal in some way. You can see here that I simply lettered out "Daylight Savings." A quick glance at the page and I immediately know when I created it.
This is one of my favorite things to do these days -- created pretty patterned circles and then journal all around them.
That's the "Days of the Week" Balzer Bit.
I usually stamp the day of the week, but it's hard to do it around the curve, so I went for some block lettering instead.
The painted patterns were something I did a while ago and then bound into my junque journal, but you'd never guess it looking at this spread now.
There's my "year of yes" stamp making an appearance. I used markers to color in the background and then that white Sharpie to create a shadow.
The letters were stamped with a set of hand carved alphbet stamps and then colored with markers. I'm really loving markers lately.
Lots more to share coming soon! What have you been up to?
Here is this week's linky list:
Thanks for stopping by!
