I have been having fun browsing all sorts of Journal and mixed media sites to see what people do and I am finding some wonderful things.
I also found a Journal Challenge at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY, so I made something to enter.
The really great thing is - this art journal business is making me search through things I have got that I had completely forgotten about or bought and not used !! :-) I am also finding stuff that is new and I will never use - impulse buys I guess. Maybe I will have to sell/swap those. hahaha LoL
Anyways - I managed to get a relatively decent shot of the pearl sprays but it still doesn't show up well does it. ? Does anyone have any tips for taking pics of pearly shiny schtuff ???

Art Journal BIG FUN I'd say. Each page you create is SO different to the previous one. You look like you're having a ball with the Journaling malarkey! Think I might play in mine in a minute!ReplyDelete

Great art journal,love the soft colors and the eyes,love this piece.ReplyDelete
awesome page, the Quote on the top is wonderful, too!ReplyDelete
Wonderful page Ike... that's the same to me with forgotten things and stuff that I bought and never used...hihi,ReplyDelete
I found out that when I take a photo with turned on light (not daylight -artificial light) the shine and glitter shows better-
but I don't often use shiny stuff on my pages....
Thank you very much for participating in the Art Journal Journey Challenge with this fabulous piece!
I like your Vintage Look page very much. Very good designed!ReplyDelete
Really gorgeous Ike. I love the mixtures you have used and how you have put on your gloss/glitter/sheen over the words. I was a member/submitter (?) to Paint Party Friday for years and Balzer and that is a great way to meet hundreds of Mixed Media Journalling Folk and to find their Challenges and commune back and forth on each other's pieces. PPF is a really tight community once you submit each week. Willowing Arts has alot of Journallers/Mixed media as well, both teaching and participating in Life Book, which I've done each year. Just look up who is teaching for each year and go to their blogs...loads of journallers info! I love what you are up to. Your penwomanship is phenomenal. Just on that alone, I can totally see you teaching a workshop online. Joanne Sharp, who I've taken a few from, does exactly that...your penwomanship is one of the most unique I've seen...and combined with your artistic flair - wow - would a workshop be great!!!! I'll be a huge supporter. xoxReplyDelete
Oh, and of course The Art Journaler. (online, instagram, FB, Twitter)...ReplyDelete
