Flip Side Friday #16 – Pages that Live Beyond Your Journal!

PinkBatikPageThese are some of the favorite pages I have made so far in my art journaling life that started in 2007. I am thinking of making fabric from these patterns. I am thinking of copying them for back grounds of other papers for printing.

I want to stencil over them again and add text and, and, and…sometimes you make a page spread that will live far beyond your daily journals. This is when it is more than exciting – it is fulfilling.

 

The Journal Project 2014 – Week 46 – Art Camp for Women

These weekly prompts are not intended to make an entire page but instead are meant to give you a starting point for a daily practice of Art Journaling.

 Art Prompt: Stamp your page with stamps dipped in clear gesso or matte gel medium – dry – then rub over the images with ink pads of your choice of color.

Writing Prompt: Write about parts of you that seem to be emerging from your background as you journal and own your experiences.

Flip Side Friday #15 – Using the Prepared Pages

When I show the pictures for the Wednesday posts I sometimes forget you may not have seen (because I didn’t show you) the BEFORE picture of the pages. I am very conscientious about taking before and after pictures but then it seems like they take too much room. So here is a BEFORE picture for last Wednesday’s post.

I would also like to point out that the pages are not perfect or figured out before I get to them for writing.

The stamps you see here were made out of kids fun foam sheets with sticky backs. The leaf pattern was melted in with a heat tool that looks like a soldering iron. The little coil was just free hand cut with scissors and stuck to a backing. You can see that these also are not perfect. I like the kind of organic look and how they fit over and in the stenciled in circles. Do you?

 Art Prompt: Add in black detailing for your already stamped and stenciled pages. Make sure you use permanent ink so it won’t smear.
Writing Prompt: Write in short blocks when you are trying to capture lines for a poem or quick notes you can go back to when you have more time or less distraction. (Like when you are on a vacation.)

Gathering Experiences for Your Journal – Lori W. in Austria

Gosau-LW-AC4Wblog

To have a Traveling Art Journal you will need to  -  travel! On a trip you can  gather as many experiences as you gather ephemera and have art supplies at home. Hut-n-Trek  has a couple of new posts about our hut-to-hut treks in the Austrian Alps last month. Click on the link to see us as we figure out if we can do Art Journaling Treks there.

Do you see any place you would like to visit? Or sketch?
