Mixed Media - Art Journal 8-15-13 - If you Never Try you'll never know

  New Art Journal Mixed Media Piece I just completed in my Large Moleskin.
Live Laugh Much.

If you never try you will never know.

Working in the large art journal is fun and scary at the same time... It just depends what you decide to do..   

This page started with back ground paint just (extra paint that I painted onto this page and let dry)

After I got the layers the way I wanted...  I built the page.
The video shows the process.

I hope you enjoy.

Please feel free to share - and I love comments.

Thank you for watching.

8-4-13 New Canvas - Live in the moment

Here is my video speed process.

This was alot of fun to do...   Put gesso on your canvas and before it drys - pull out your sprays
I used Dylusions I just love them - and love how it seeps into the canvas.

Once the sprays are on make sure to let it dry.

The above is what it looks like once it's dry.   I have to say I almost left it at this point... I loved it... My daughter loved it - but of course I had to do more...

So dripped liquitex Inks (india inks) on it let it drip down.

I used stencils
I used Modeling paste in White & mixing Black into it.
Under the heart stencils I then dripped Red ink.

Here's a video Tutorial of the process.

Below are some close up.

Here's another close up

I then pulled out some black paint and outlined the hearts.

Here's some more close ups.
