I did this scene using some clear stamps and two tree stamps from All Night Media. I sponged the colours on the background and coloured in the figures with some markers. It looks darker in real life than this photo shows. It was so much fun to do a Halloween scene!
Trick or treat!

It is really fun to paint right over the text that I used to study all those years ago! Try to find an old book that you can alter and start playing!
Have a creative day! :D

Have fun trying different techniques in your art journal.
Saturday, October 15, 2011
This journal page has many different techniques going on. I just used this page to experiment with things and it slowly evolved. First I sprayed through a stencil with inks on the left page and then turned the stencil over onto the right page to soak up the ink left on the stencil. Another day I painted on some leftover paint over the page. Another day I stamped with the end of a toilet paper roll just for fun. Finally I stamped some images and glittered them up with Stickles glitter glue and stamped some background hearts. Voila! Complete.
This page has many layers of inks and paints and markers. If you click on the image and make it larger, you can see some of the stamps in the background. I just love all the colours of Fall.
Maui Dreams. This page had a background of bright paints, then a layer of gesso to tone it all down, then stamps and markers to colour the images. I've been to Maui once and would love to go back again some day. In the meantime, I'll keep dreaming.
Have a lovely dreamy and creative day! :D

I have been wanting to start a tree art journal for some time now. Last night I chose the journal and started to draw. I had seen a similar style of this tree drawing on flickr so I decided to give it a try, but change it to my version. I stayed up too late last night (big grin) and then finished it this morning. I drew the circles in with different zentangle type patterns and added colour with pencil crayons. I used a sharpie marker to draw the design.
So now my tree journal has begun and this is the first page. I have lots of ideas for different trees and I'm excited to experiment with new techniques and interesting tree creations.
Have a happy and creative day! :D
