Mixed Media Journal Page 2-19-13 Needs And Wants

So here's a page I did last night....   Of course this was after working on my financial budget...

The circles were left blank for me to fill in over time things that I Need... verses Want..  I have a feeling the wants are going to need more circles LOL....

So put this into Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Creative Journal

This page was actually one of those back pages in your book when you are working on other pages and you take the stencil and then press it into another page - so the black squares was left over from another page...  this was created with Crafter's Workshop 12x12 Cubist which I bought from Overstock.

I then used my Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Crayon Set that I got from Jerry's Artarama
I used Fast Orange, Lime Green, Lilac and Mauve

You just color the crayon just like when you were little - then take a brush with water I used my Aquashbrush which I bought from Donna Downey's store.

That just smooths out the Crayon and it looks great.

I then took out my favorite tool...  The empty Toilet Paper Roll - and used black acrylic paint - and stamped circles all over it.

I also used the rest of my Bazzil Just the Edge 12" Cardstock Strips Perfectly Pleated Dictionary. 

I then used the Crayon's again and the Aquabrush and colored that in as well...

I then also took out my circle templates on the ends where I used Modeling Paste to make some texture

I then pulled out my pan pastels (thank you Donna Downey) and inspiration wednesday.... opening up my eyes.

I then pulled out my Faber Castell Gelatos to fill in The other circles.

Pulled out my markers and wrote Needs & Wants.

Gave it a Spectrafix Spray to seal it...
And it's done.

I hope you enjoy it...

Please comment and share...



  1. This is very cool...I love all the colors...it is great that you find the time to do your journaling especially when life can be so crazy...art journaling is definitely a NEED for me...and I NEED to make more time for it...have a FaBuLoUs day!!!

  2. Thank you Monica... I am a mother of 3 - married - 2 dogs - and a full time job... but what i have found over the last few months since I started doing this is I need to find the time even if it's only a few hours... and I only do 1 page - I still feel better afterwards... It's all about feelings and putting them down and letting them go.. Then I feel so much better...
