Art Journal Project!

Hello Friends!

The other day I stumbled onto a notice on Instagram for a few free videos of how to make an art journal and use it to set and reach goals for the year. It is almost 2019 already which I can barely comprehend.

Miriam Schuman teaches classes at her website called The Inspiration Place. The first four videos are free which are each only a few minutes long. But this is all I am doing for now. I think these four videos are a free introduction to her class called “Painting with Words.” So you can google her and find it if you are interested. I am taking a break from classes for the rest of the year.

Here is the cover of my journal.

I attempted to make it look like a sea floor. Using Washi tape was fun. My daughter let me use hers because she is sweet. 😉 She is eventually planning to do one as well.

Here is the first page.

My paper curled up some, but I was layering some gouache over watercolor…just playing…as my friend Janet suggested. Thanks, Janet. I want to try it on bigger 300 lb. watercolor paper which can take more water without curling the paper.

What I enjoy about playing is that I always learn something new!! My gouache paints are the cheapest brand I could find to experiment with when I took the illustration class. But they are fine. Now I want to experiment painting with just the gouche paints. I also have a book to finish and review.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁
