Playing with art

Today was the start of something new again for me. I had so much fun with the Joynal class by Jane Davenport, learning to draw better, I now feel confident to start something fresh.
As you all know, I am always looking for a new art technique to explore. I spent the last 48 hours roaming the net and couldn't find a single thing that was like what I had in mind.
So what to do? Just dive in and make it up as I go. Sometimes the best art comes out when your not thinking about it too much or learning from someone else.
I am totally obsessed with my journals at the moment, in particularly my old children's book journals.
So I begun my new page.
I used my altered vintage girls annual childrens book journal, gesso, paint spritzers, magazine clippings, acrylic paint, graphite pencil, prisma pencils, tombow markers, gel pens and a white and black paint pen. I really wanted to incorporate my own drawings with the shiny magazine clippings.
So here is my page for the 1 August 2013.
I love the whimsy and the different textures and colourings. I am really happy how it turned out and hope to fill my journals pages with this new look I have made.
Thanks for visiting!


  1. Love the bear and the girl hugging! omg so cute!!

  2. Thanks Marcia. I cant take all the credit though, I saw this bear by another artist for a canadian brochure, but I changed the girl. Its definitely my favorite part of the page.
