Enjoy Every Moment……art journal style.

Day #11.  This is the page I was going to blog about yesterday…..and then got sidetracked with grandbabies and great nephews….which I would take any day….lol.  They all just had so much fun together.  :o)  ❤

This is a page I did some time ago and just never got around to blogging about.  I created it when I was down visiting Limor Webber in Edmonton on weekend last September.  We had so much fun that weekend….lol.

I had a chance to play with some of her Dina Wakely paints which were fun and I loved the bright vibrant colors!  I used a bubble stencil…..some Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, background stamps and a saying off a piece of scrapbook paper I’d found at one of the stores while I was there.



Gotta love a good charcoal pencil and some ink splatter to finish off a page.  ;o)

Here’s the completed page….


I really love the colors in this page…..I’ll have to remember to put these together again one day.

Thanks again for dropping by.  Comments are always appreciated.  🙂



Here are my peeps who are also along for this 90 days of blogging experience.

Abstract Art Journal page


After Limor Webber’s Ustream class of Tuesday evening, I’ve wanted to try my hand at the abstract art technique she taught.  Check out the recording on her YouTube channel here.  I loved the canvas she did and although I didn’t brave it on a canvas, I did do attempt a page in my Art Journal.  I really like how it turned out!   For the background I started out with a couple of pieces from a black/grey and white napkin and then added a bunch of random paint to cover the page.  I used some of my Liquitex Basic’s acrylic paints in Brilliant Yellow Green, Primary Yellow, Canmium Orange Hue and Prism Violet.  I them stamped random images with my StazOn to help fill in the background and add texture.  I also stamped a few random sayings onto the page as well.  I took some Liquitex acrylic Primary Blue and Naphthol Crimson and also randomly applied some smudges with my fingers to the page.  I then took a couple of round containers and some Liquitex Mars Black acrylic paint and outlined certain spots on the page and then doodled around them with my white Unibal Signo pen.  Had a blast with this page and really felt like I was outside my comfort zone.  Here’s the napkin I used on my background.



And here’s my page…..



Here’s a couple of close-ups of the colors and textures in the background.

Had a blast…..may even try this on a canvas one day….lol.

Thanks for popping in…..I’m off to go and find something else to play with in my craft room.  :o)
