Use Adobe Creative Cloud to Edit Your Art Journal Pages

I always have so much fun creating an art page page, but sometimes that is just half the journey…. I take a picture of it and let the fun begin again.  Usining Adobe’s Lightroom CC and POhotoshop CC gives unlimited editing potential.  Here are just a few quick edits I did, using presets, to get a quick example together of how just a few minutes spent in editing can change the tone and feel of the jornal entry immensely…

I follow ALOT of YouTube channels that cater to my wide variety of interest but for abstract art demonstrations SurajFineArts is by far my favorite. Here’s a painting a did after watching one of his many inspiring videos. I highly recommend following him if your a YouTuber. Here’s a link to the video that inspired this painting I did and I’m also inserting a link to his channel. https://youtu.be/92RPGN-A4o

Journal Entry July 22, 2018

I used Gelatos and pens by Faber Castell for doing the background and coloring in some of the stencils. I love their products. Liquitex Acrylic paint and mediums, Micron Pens, Prismacolor colored pencils, Gellyroll pens, Faber Castell Gelatos and pens, Windsor &Newton and Jane Davenport Watercolors are must-haves in my art supplies. I also like Jim Holtz and Dylusions products.

Art Journal July 21, 2018

This entry is from July 21, 2018 I think. The day after I saw the orthopedic surgeon and learned that I HAVE to lose 40 pounds before they can operate and give me 2 new hips. Time for some major lifestyle changes!!! I’ve been exercising on my recumbent bicycle every morning as soon as I wake up and have found that it’s already helping with my stiffness and pain. Soon, I’ll add swimming into the mix. I ordered a cute bathing suit online.

Mandala

For this Mandala I used a variety of mediums and products such as Micron pens, a compass, Faber Castell pens, Gellyroll pens, watercolor and Gelatos also by Faber Castell. Since it is so detailed with Zentangle patterns, this Mandala took me about 18 hours to complete. It is on mixed media paper and currently unframed. JRiaz

“Pink Chaos” Abstract Painting

Liquitex is my favorite brand when it comes to acrylic painting. I especially love their heavy body line of paint and their modeling paste and heavy gel. I painted an underlayer of pink and let it dry over night. Then I spread modeling paste across the entire 20 x 20 canvas and “carved” in it using a fork. After it fully dried a couple of days later, then I painted on top of the modeling paste. I had so much fun creating this piece!  #painting #liquitex #heavy gloss gel #pallate knives #acrylicpainting  #abstracts#abstract art #layers #textureart #canvas #artwork #artdirection#artlovers #fineart  I have a few more paintings in process using the same technique. I’ll be posting them soon. #floridart #gel #artlovers

“Fork It”: Abstract Painting with Liquitex Heavy Gel.

“Fork It” is an abstract acrylic on 20 x 20 canvas. I used Liquitex paint, heavy gel, and varnish. I had a blast creating this  I laid a thick layer of red paint mixed with Liquitex heave gel and used a small kitchen fork to create the “trails” after it dried for a couple days it was ready to add different colors over the red to create contrast and visual complexity.  I sold this one for $450 at an art show and still miss it.
