Okay, @photojenn! I had to go find a similar one! it’s not really a tutorial, but she gives several clips of watercolor botanicals + doodling. I feel like I can figure it out!
I think I need to up my watercolor game this year.
I have been in a bit of a paint-y slump lately, but you all are so inspiring I picked up my paints today! I did get new Liquitex acrylics last month but this isn’t my first time using…it could still count as new for the Jan prompt though right? Oh well either way, here’s my newest page in my journal petite. Inspired by this video.
Your doodles are so neat and perfect! I love it!
I love the way this page goes from sort of chaos at the outside, to calm in the middle. It draws your eye in so well. I love all the textures and layers also!
@megwell loving all your different page ideas!
@photojenn that watercolor doodle page is so cool
@Abbeeroad I love that! I watched some of Susanne Rose Art’s video yesterday.
For the 12 Days of Christmas swap @photojenn gave me this set of art journaling prompts
I put them in card sleeves to protect them from my messy creative style and in this old card box that I think I got from @Magpie ?
here are the 2 pages I did following the prompts (You randomly pick 5 cards, shuffle, do what each card says, shuffle again and do them again in a different order.
great way to make backgrounds!
and then I added some simple focal points
and here are some other pages I’ve done in my notebook
How fun! I particularly like the “art” page, but the prompts are great!
Yes! I want to do more of her videos for sure.
This is the one I want to try.
Anyone around this sunday to journal over zoom? this one looks simple and fairly quick.
My son has basketball practice and a game on Sunday, but I might be able to squeeze this in if it’s at our normally scheduled time!
I should be able to make it
I should have done a poll.
Who’s in for art journaling Sunday at 2pm Eastern time?
@BeesKnees @Edel @calluna @Cyn-energy @marionberries @AIMR @Abbeeroad @photojenn @Cindy @Lynx2Lancer @goatgoddesss
This should be a good one to jump in on if you haven’t joined in before!
This video she paints with inks but you could definitely use watercolors or watered down acrylics. She uses a lettering stamp but you could collage some book text down.
the circles are also stamps but easy enough to replicate using a gel pen and something to trace around.
- I’m in
- Not this time
- paper to paint on
- inks, watercolors, watered down acrylics
- gel or paint pens - optional
- a sentiment
- a focal point - could be something you draw or cut out
- heat gun or hair dryer
I am going to try this to make an alternative to the spray inks. Might be a total disaster, but I happen to have the gel icing coloring on hand. Worth a shot.
I said yes, but I’ve forgotten that I’m away on Sunday, so I might not be back in time
A free art journal lesson from Stampington
that color palette book she uses looks AMAZING and I can’t find it
What about the design seeds instagram? Lots of color palettes there to look at and use.
ooh thanks! I googled the name and the site was coming up as dead and I didn’t get past the first (dead) suggestion for the the insta. So weird because it is fine now…
I will def use her insta for reference! I would still love a hard copy though; maybe I will find it if I keep looking. There is just something about hard copy for stuff like this
Just an FYI - the Teachable site will be down for maintenance on Sunday 1/16/22 from 6 am to 10 am EST. So you won’t be able to access any classes.
