As you know, I do weekly Project Life layouts. I also like to do layouts of important events and special days! This is one of those very moments that I wanted to capture forever.

I am posting so many layouts-phew. I hope you are enjoying them and getting some inspiration! I love this layout and it might have something to do with the fun colors and pops of black.

This is a mixed media layout of my friend Teresa and I last summer. I have to admit that this is one of my favorites. I really love how the colors all came together with the focus being that black & white photo.

Summer Break Art Journaling

June 27, 2014 at 8:28 amCategory:Art Journal

I have been loving the structure of Project Life lately. BUT, I had this urge to grab my art journal this week and I didn’t fight it. I had no clue what I was going to create so I just “went with it”. I opened it up to a page that had some random things glued to it and written on it. It was already covered with some gelli plate prints, a tag that I experimented with, some random writing and a phrase from a piece of mail that advertised a Broadway play. I love to add very random, sporadic things to my journal. It helps to get my creativity flowing. I do it often with those things that we say we may use someday. For example, I received roses yesterday from some of the kids at school and one of them was wrapped with a rose print paper. I plan to collage that into my art journal after I finish this blog post. There will be no finished goal in mind-it’s a future starting place for a page and the paper is now living in my book.

IMG_4357I squirted out lots of random colors of paint onto a piece of grid paper (I do that so I can add the grid paper into the journal later). I made shapes and blotches of colors without any real thought of design. Actually, I didn’t think about it much at all.

IMG_4362Next, I sketched out a face with a graphite pencil and covered her with watered down gesso to give it a base.

IMG_4372My sweet love bought these Primacolor Watercolor Pencils for me a few summers ago. I have used them a lot (but not enough) and love them. I thought it would be fun to play with them and add beautiful soft colors to this face.

IMG_4371I have to admit that I wasn’t happy with her. She seemed flat and did not excite me. I put her to the side overnight and stopped staring at her. The next day I grabbed the journal again and just started playing. I added a ton of doodling and stenciling and a load of color! Hope you enjoy how the page evolved! Happy Summer!
