Page11

Jen here with another peek into my Sketchbook Project journal!  I wanted to show you the inside front page today.  I wanted to see some journaling through the window in the front cover.  I decided to journal in a "circle" since that was the overarching theme of my journal (I have a love of circles...).

Sketchbook Project 2014 with Jen Matott


Cover22

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 is the cover of the book.

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.

Here's my take.

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).

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.
