Flip Side Friday #17 – Feeling Full

Written by on November 28, 2014 in Art Journaling, Art Travel Tips, Traveling Art Journal with 0 Comments

The Friday after Thanksgiving and I am full –

Full of Gratitude, Full of Food, Full of Family and Friends,

Full of Satisfaction in this Past Year.

Doing the Traveling Art Journal test-class with my female relatives at our family reunion had  some unexpected bonuses. This is what I love about art – you get the art, but in addition to the art you get the bonus! In this case multiple bonuses!

Making art, especially making art with others, has many outcomes and unexpected bonuses. One bonus I have come to expect is that you get to know someone on an entirely different level than you have before. This is especially wonderful when the others are sisters, cousins, sister-in-laws, nieces and you name it. I have come to expect the unexpected, but I didn’t expect what I got this time.

Flip Side Friday #16 – Pages that Live Beyond Your Journal!

Written by on November 21, 2014 in Art Camp for Women, Art Journaling, Flip Side Friday with 0 Comments

PinkBatikPageThese are some of the favorite pages I have made so far in my art journaling life that started in 2007. I am thinking of making fabric from these patterns. I am thinking of copying them for back grounds of other papers for printing.

I want to stencil over them again and add text and, and, and…sometimes you make a page spread that will live far beyond your daily journals. This is when it is more than exciting – it is fulfilling.

Flip Side Friday #15 – Using the Prepared Pages

Written by on November 14, 2014 in Art Camp for Women, Art Journaling, Flip Side Friday with 0 Comments

When I show the pictures for the Wednesday posts I sometimes forget you may not have seen (because I didn’t show you) the BEFORE picture of the pages. I am very conscientious about taking before and after pictures but then it seems like they take too much room. So here is a BEFORE picture for last Wednesday’s post.

novpatternorangepre

I would also like to point out that the pages are not perfect or figured out before I get to them for writing.

The stamps you see here were made out of kids fun foam sheets with sticky backs. The leaf pattern was melted in with a heat tool that looks like a soldering iron. The little coil was just free hand cut with scissors and stuck to a backing. You can see that these also are not perfect. I like the kind of organic look and how they fit over and in the stenciled in circles. Do you?

 Art Prompt: Add in black detailing for your already stamped and stenciled pages. Make sure you use permanent ink so it won’t smear.
Writing Prompt: Write in short blocks when you are trying to capture lines for a poem or quick notes you can go back to when you have more time or less distraction. (Like when you are on a vacation.)

To have a Traveling Art Journal you will need to  –  travel! On a trip you can  gather as many experiences as you gather ephemera and have art supplies at home. Hut-n-Trek  has a couple of new posts about our hut-to-hut treks in the Austrian Alps last month. Click on the link to see us as we figure out if we can do Art Journaling Treks there.

Do you see any place you would like to visit? Or sketch?

Flip Side Friday #14 – The Waiting Game

Written by on November 7, 2014 in Art Camp Adventures, Art Journaling, Flip Side Friday with 2 Comments

the waiting gameThe past two weeks have been full of waiting – waiting for busses, planes, boring explanations in a class, waiting for meals, kids and my turn to vote. You name it and there we are waiting!

During that class I mentioned? I turned to a page in my journal that had no prep work on it just a little bleed through and called it my WAITING page. This particular journal has grid marks on the pages so I drew a 4 X 4 square, got out a pen and filled in the square. Next stop – I pulled it out again. Soon I was looking forward to a chance to “wait” making what can be boring or frustrating into my next practice session.
