Journaling with emotions once again

  Imperfection blog

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. I hope that Spring makes you happy. As I already mentioned I’m really addicted to art journaling and in my last post I started to work with a great mixed media journal from Faber-Castell. With the second attempt I came to the grips with the rest of eight mentioned techniques: layering, misting, stamping and doodling.

Magic is in the Air!


Magic_JMatott1

Jen Matott here to share a page with you! My son has always been fascinated with the idea of magic.. when he was around 3 years old, he would think that he could make water disappear!  It was one hot day playing in the sprinkler when he thought he could do a little magic.  He grabbed some water from the sprinkler and would open his hand as if he did a magic trick!  So cute!

Take the Challenge with Mou, April 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the fourth Take The Challenge of 2014!

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
 
We just returned from our sprink break. We went on a cruise to Haiti, Jamaica, and Cozumel. When we go on such family vacations, I carry a sketch book and my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils, Deluxe Waterbrush, and Essential PITT Artist pens (BLACK). The light load works best for me. In between shore excursions and general entertainment and relaxing, I sketch simple scenes around me. 
 
How do you stay creative during your vacations? Show us any project you created on the go.

And I took a quick photo around the same time to show what I mean by simple scenes. Here's my son, busy playing with his i-pod nano on our private deck.

I started with a pencil sketch.

 Next I colored the sketch with various shades of Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencils.

I used the Deluxe Waterbrush to blend the colors. When dry, I added details with Essential PITT Artist pens (BLACK).

Art Journal Page with Jen Matott

 

JustBepage1

Hi creative friends!  I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released.  One of them is full of my artwork!  In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit! 

It is the second one that I've designed for  them and I'm thrilled with how it looks!  WOW!  I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit.  In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included.  So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!

Journaling with emotions

Storm blog

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. Do you love art journaling? I do love and every once in the while I have to transcribe my emotions onto papier. Since my last art journal burst at the seams I decided to try out the Faber-Castell one. It is dedicated to all media and I came to the grips with four out of the eight mentioned techniques: texturing, painting, collage and embellishing.

The Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products I used on this Art Journal cover are:

  • Gelatos® tool set
  • Gelatos®
  • Glaze, Gel Medium
  • Mixed media Journal
  • PITT Big Brush Pens
  • Whipped Spackle]
  • Chalkboard, Gesso

Here are some detail pics also where you can look at the effects all those layers created.

Starlight Journal page with Jen Matott

Hi fellow artists!  I want to share another of my art journal pages from my Sketchbook Project 2014 book.  Every year I create a journal for the Sketchbook Project from the Brooklyn Art Library.  It's a traveling art show of art journals!   You can choose your own theme based on a variety of starting topics they give you.  Mine was based on "Borders and Lines" but I decided to title it "In Certain Circles..." This page was inspired by rays of light.
