Art Journal Every Day: Limited to Ten - Take 2

ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150If 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!

Three weeks ago I posted the five basic supplies I would give to a beginning art journaler and I then I asked you to send me photos and a description of the five supplies you would add to that.  Last week I shared pages you sent in that answered the challenge of creating a page with just ten supplies.  Today I'm sharing more of your pages!

What you will see is each artist's page and then the 10 supplies they used to make it.

I don’t usually limit the range of products I use for a page, except for when I design for a particular design team brief so to limit it to just ten was a good challenge!

  1. Journal – my Strathmore Mixed Media journal can take everything I through at it, especially really wet media.
  2. Liquitex Modeling Paste – a staple for my mixed media play. It can add texture but also adds a different surface to a page allowing me to carve into the wet or dry paste for more texture.
  3. Liquitex Matte Gel Medium – the best ‘glue’ for adding collage elements to an art journal page. The matt finish means there is less chance of seeing where the glue went down.
  4. Stencil – love the versatility and instant pattern that stencils give to a page. In my book, you can never have enough stencils!
  5. Faber-Castell Gelatos – my ‘go to’ supply for bursts of colour.
  6. Darkroom Door stamps – what can I say, I love them! The brand has so many different options available in backgrounds, text and image stamps that I can always find one (or more) to suit the project I have in mind.
  7. Ranger Archival inks – the best ink for stamping, sponging and adding some grunge to an art journal page as they are totally waterproof.
  8. Black Posca Pen – these pens come in a range of nib sizes and colours and perfect for going over bumpy mixed media projects.
  9. Dictionary Pages – these pages came from an old French dictionary and I use English ones as well. I have a couple of different ones around with different text sizes & fonts and pages in different states of aging.
  10. Tissue Paper – perfect to stamp onto and then add to the project. Saves that nail biting moment of being sure you stamp clearly onto a textured page!


Inspiring pages to be sure!  And I love seeing all the supplies that people use and love.  Just more proof that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to art journaling.  We are all different and approach our journals differently and that is amazing!

Here is this week's linky list:
