Today some pages in my Art Journal inspired by other Art Journal girls around on the net. All spreads have links to each of my “inspirations”, images and art that makes me wanna try getting messy myself, pages that tickles my fantasy, that makes me wanna paint…
Scratch my Heart out – another b/w journal spread. This in is extremely inspired by Julie Prichard’s centerfold spread. Just like Julie I do looove my dear charcoal pens. Smudge smudge!
Time to travel spread. Still doing stuff on black, trying to finish my tube of black acrylic paint before it dries up. The left page mostly inspired by Teesha Moore and her workshop videos. The doodle inspired by Daisy Yellow’s mandala with Neocolors on black, isn’t it beautiful?
Each page scanned for you and your enjoyment today, take a closer look and be inspired too;
- Pour out some gesso and acrylic colors onto a paper plate. Dip your old credit card or scraping device into several colors and drag across the surface. Be light handed and random. Dip and scrape. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Let dry. Do some more. As your surface gets built up with paint you’ll see some terrific textures emerge.
- I drew a mandala doodle with neocolors, because the way they pop on black ink is just addictive. Have you tried black gesso yet? Have you tried neocolors on black gesso while sipping a cup of earl grey tea? While avoiding the laundry? What did you skip in order to do art today?
There is inspiration everywhere. I hope this inspired you to pick up a tool and do some marks?!
