Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!

Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the seventh 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®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Here are some close-ups of my page:

Scribble Page by Jen Matott

Jen3

As a kid,I loved to doodle, scribble, and draw.  I still love it!  Scribbling gets a bad rap from adults.  It's discouraged by adults because we think it's not really art.  But as an art teacher, sometimes scribbles are very artistic!  They get our hand warmed up, they can be spontaneous and just darn fun!  I never discourage scribbles except when students are supposed to be drawing realistically.  Here is a page in my journal that I created scribbles as the main part of the page!

Be yourself in journaling

Be yourself

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. In my last post as a guest designer I would like to present you my another entry based on a mixed media journal and versatile products by Faber-Castell, which you can mix and match with flying colours.

1  

1. I started with covering the surface with a light coat of Gesso and watered Gelotos. Then I put a thick coat of Whippled Spackle using both a stencil and a spatula and let it dry.

2

2. I glued some collage scraps with Gel Medium and colored them with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and bit of water. I also traced the dimentional elements. I think that a little color goes a long way.

3

3. I placed another stencil and covered the surface beneath with Gelotos in blue palette. Then I started stamping using PITT® Artist Pens with big brushes which are waterproof and perfectly matched to color sets.

4

4. Finally, I doodled some patterns on the whole using black PITT® Artist Pens and glued some embellisments with Gel Medium. And voila! The dimensional journal entry was ready.

I hope you feel a bit inspired. Have a nice day!

 

Supplies:

PITT® Artist Pens 199

PITT® Artist Pens Big Brush Neutral

Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils® Blue

Gelatos® Colors Metallic Melon, Blood Orange, Watermelon, Acqua Dolce, Snow Cone

Gesso

Whippped Spackle

Gel Medium

Palette knife, Stipple Brush

Art journal video with Vicky

Art journal flip flops

Hi everyone! It's Vicky here and today I am sharing a fun art journal layout. In the video below I will show you a technique on how you can create awesome mixed media results by just using your patterned papers, the Faber-Castell gel medium and your PITT Stamper's Big Brush pens. 

IMG_8029-001

If you had to keep it limited in terms of supplies then your must have tools should be your gel medium jar and your big brush markers! I'll show you today how versatile they are, you can apply color with them to your layout, stamp with them and even add shading or highlights.

IMG_8027-001

To create my summer scene I used papers, glued them down with my gel medium and then used my artist pens to do the shading. To add more details I just glued down some flat wooden embellishments here and there.

You can watch the video below

 

Supplies:

  • Faber-Castell gel medium
  • Faber-Castell gesso
  • Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush

(for a list of the rest of the supplies including embellishments and stamp sets please see description below the video on YouTube)

Thank you all for joining us today!

    Congratulations Patty :)
    FABULOUS cover & 1st page Jen!!!
    I have participated in what we called a "Circle Journal" over here in Australia (they were actually small scrapbooks, 8x8 and 6x11) and it was FUN, we each set our themes and posted our journals off, then had a few weeks to get our entries done & posted off. Because "life" can get in the way, we had a monthly turn-around, so it took nearly a year and we all ended up with lots of special pages. For me, it was lovely to have work created by others to admire and enjoy, HIGHLY recommend it to you all to try, just remember to take lots of photos and ensure secure postage.
