PITT® Artist Pens

Coloring Book with PITT Artist Pens

Coloringbook - 3

Hi Artsy Friends!  Jen here to share a fun way to destress from crazy times!  This time of year is full of sports, end of the year school events, and lots of stress!  I am sitting at a child's sports practice at least 3 times a week!  So, I loved bringing something to do when I'm waiting.  I packed up a bunch of PITT Artist Pens in a variety of colors and a fun coloring book to take with me for soccer practice.

Art Journal Page by Jen Matott

Artpage - 5

I have been working in an art journal lately with other art teachers.  We trade journals every month and create a page that explores techniques, images, ideas and lessons that we are inspired by for our students.  Our hope was that we might have a collection of professional art, ideas and lessons in which to share at the end of the year.   So, for this page, I was exploring some pen drawing and areas of color using Gelatos® watered down as well as splattered on.   As an Art educator and artist, I like working out ideas in a journal so that I can possibly use them on a full sized canvas or paper.

Art Journaling with Rita Barakat

 Rita Barakat Art Journaling
Hey creatives, Rita Barakat here. Have you been art journaling? I thought I'd share this insert I made in my art journal today. Sometimes you run across a great quote worth preserving; this one is from a song "If we're honest" by Francesca Battistelli. The minute I heard it I knew I wanted to do something with it putting it in my art journal was a perfect choice.

First I had cut this page in my art journal book, just to break it up - it makes for a good place to hide journaling. I had some paint spilled on it previously but that's ok, sometimes you work with what you have.  I drew some lines and the words in pencil, then traced the words with a PITT® Artist Pen and erased those pencil lines.

Then the fun part began! I don't know what it is but there is something very relaxing about drawing  doodles! Decorating my letters, not really worried about how it turns out...just doodling. Art journaling is perfect for trying out things, no worries, just be creative.

Here is how it turned out, now it's time for color!

I grabbed my Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and filled in some color.

This is when it takes on a life of it's own, more doodles, more color... I used a little gesso to cover any unwanted spots of previous paint when I decided I wanted a clean look.

Here is a close up, anything goes, sometimes you just have to be creative for the fun of it! I loved the way it came out. I also ended up using PITT® Pastel Pencils for the background, they blend easily for a soft look.  I used to do these all the time and I forgot how much fun it is! You definitely need to try this - what will you create?
