would you love to learn to create a cute mixed media art journal? just to get to know what mixed media and art journaling is all about? playing with paint, paper and crayons?
i've just added my 'stand alone' lesson from the Art Journal Summer School 2015 to my Etsyshop!
this lesson is about 15 minutes and I shortly explain to you how to make this cute art journal page. you will quickly learn my process with using crayons, acrylic paint, paper and paint pens and you'll have so much fun. that's a promise.
some pieces of the video are speed up, there where it’s completely clear what I’m doing. and we ain’t got all day :)
maybe you are already totally into mixed media and art journaling and this is a lovely motivating lesson. but maybe you are totally new and you would LOVE to learn what the fuss is all about! Well, this is the perfect lesson to start out. and after that, you can buy all my classes later on so i can get rich, mwuhaha <my evil laugh>.
15 minutes of fun & of course dying to start yourself!
what do you need (and no stress, lot’s of materials I use are perfectly replaceable with products you probably have on hand already)
- art journal or sheet of paper
- acrylic paint
- posca pen (or another acrylic paint pen)
- book paper
- pen to doodlen, for instance the posca pen or a sharpie
- washi tape
- neocolor 2 (or any other water soluble wax crayons)
- gel medium (or mod lodge, to glue the paper to your page)
mixed media and art journaling is all about NOT THINKING TOO MUCH. it’s all about having fun and that you create WHATEVER YOU LIKE. turn on your favorite music, gather all those beautiful creative materials and GO LIKE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT :)
give yourself permission to play, and enjoy!!!
