Holiday Art Journal Video: All is Calm

Hi everyone! Today was our first day of snow. Flakes have been falling since since last night and the world is covered in a blanket of white. Well, my world anyway! Out come the boots, mitts and holiday decorations! 

The holiday season is the inspiration for my art journal video today. Design Memory Craft® 'Mix and Match' makes it so easy to mix mediums and choose colors. Can you guess what Christmas carol my quote is from?

Here is the finished page:

Dia de los Muertos Inspired page with Jen Matott

JenM1114GoodTimes

As much as I love dressing up for Halloween, I love dressing up to educate my students in my art classes!  I went as a Day of the Dead Mexican Sugar Skull last Halloween.  I painted my face and created a headband of blossoms to celebrate not only our Halloween holiday but also the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos.  I love the meaning behind their celebration... to honor those that have passed before us.  To remember and celebrate our loved one's lives.  A couple days of dancing, eating, singing, parades, and family sounds like a great way to remember our heritage.  While I am not Mexican, I can appreciate a holiday that celebrates the life of others even while they have died.  Keeping their memory and accomplishments alive is part of the remembering!

Hi everyone! It's Christina (seena) Young here with a pretty collage project that is simple to put together using matte medium. As October ends I'm thinking ahead to the holiday season. All the festivities inspired my canvas. Well, that and I stumbled upon a used bookshop going out of business and scored some wonderful sheet music for a song (ha ha).

Subway Selfie Layout by Jen Matott

P1020510

 I love a good selfie once in awhile but I hate the silly faces people make.  I just had to take one when I was in the subway in New York City a couple years ago for an Art Education Association Conference.  The NAEA conference travels around each year to a different city.  That year, it was only 5 hours from me!  I had to go!  So, some fellow art teachers and I traveled there and stayed for 4 days.  We attended workshops by day (I even presented one on Visual Journaling) and explored the museums, landmarks, and shops by evening!

Riding the subway after a fun night out on the town led to some silly selfies.  Each of us took our own selfies making that signature "duck face" just to be funny.  So, this page is about that memory!
