Bird Mandala – For Sale

This mandala took spent about two days to finish, including drying time as there are many layers. Water colors and a variety of wooden stamps in various color inks completed the background. The fine pens used for making the mandala and it’s designs were made using Micron Pens. I would consider this is piece of Zentangle Inspired Art considering its use of repetitive patterns. It is on 12 by 17 inch paper. It is unframed and available for sale for $149.99

Mandala on Canvas

For this piece, I used Liquitex Acrylic Paint on a 12 x 12 canvas for the background. Then I put a stencil on the canvas once the paint was dry, and used Gold Liquitex spray paint. After that dried, I used a tiny paintbrush and red Liquitex Ink to “color in” the Mandala. I had so much fun making it that I think I will do a series in several different color schemes.

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…

Last Days Of Summer Art Journal Pages

That bittersweet, last day of summer before school starts up again, should be a special day filled with happiness and joy for each student returning to school. No more staying up all night giggling with your friends, having sleepovers, an occasional Netflix binge, playing video games or being online for countless hours at a time. All that disappears in the blink of an eye. Summer’s fly by and next thing we know academics take a priority again… I had my own special way of saying farewell to the summer and wrote about it last night and this morning in two consecutive art journal entries. As usual, my art journal pages are consisted of layers of mixed media and I feel good expressing myself while doing them, verbally in what I write and artistically with the colors, designs, stencils and materials I choose to use.

Here is a list of materials I used to make these entries:

  • Dylusions Large Art Journal
  • Faber Castell Pens
  • Micron Pens
  • Gellyroll Pens
  • Liquitex Acrylic Paint Markers
  • Block Stamps
  • Cling Stamps
  • Stencils
  • Watercolor Paint

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.
