This months Artsnacks box was one of my favorites! You could tell that the folks at Artsnacks had Inktober on their minds because it is definitely themed around that type of art making. So sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favorite something and check out the October 2017 Artsnacks unboxing video HERE!
It’s time for another Artsnacks unboxing video. In this video, I unbox the July 2017 Artsnacks and play with the supplies in my sewing book journal. You can watch the video HERE.

This is also my last blog post until my show coming up on 10/1/16 at the Colonel Crawford Fall Festival. You can visit me as well as many other makers, enjoy homemade cornbread and bean soup, and shop for a pumpkin while you are there. It is a good time. You can find out more about the event HERE.
Hope to see you there 🙂
I just got my September Artsnacks box and I filmed a quick unboxing video the day that I received it. I just couldn’t wait to see what Artsnacks had planned for this month! I also played with all of the supplies from the box in my art journal and added it in the video. You can check it out HERE.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
I have a few art journal pages from my daily art journal (junk journal) to show you. And just to clarify, I do not always journal in this journal on a daily basis. It is just where I usually do my journaling about my day, like a diary if you will. My other journals are more about expression and technique. I will be sharing those journals in a future blog post.
In the below pictured journal page, I had glued painted deli paper on to the page. I then turned my journal to a portrait orientation and drew the whimsical plants. I painted around the plants with acrylic paint. I also highlighted the plants with a white paint marker. The months and numbers are hand carved stamps that I made.
In this next journal page I adhered more painted papers to the pages and then adhered scrap paper that had circles cut out of it on top of the painted papers. I painted it with black paint, leaving the inside of the circles the color of the painted papers underneath. I adhered a Diet Coke label from a Diet Coke that my friend purchased for me because he thought that I would like how artsy it looked. I bet he never thought that I would put it in my journal 🙂 I embellished the pages with gel pens, white paint marker and a tag.
This next journal spread may look familiar. I created most of it in a video I shared that you can find here. I added the poppies with a black Stabilo Marks All and activated the pencil with water. I added my journaling and stamped the date.
For this journal page, I had smooshed left over paint, stamped foam stamps on the background, glued in a photo from a magazine, stapled a few torn tags with the journaling dates and added large words with my Permapaque markers. The quote is from my Yoga teacher, you would have to be there to understand 😉 I also added a little piece of decorative tape as a tab on the right page and stapled it to the page.
A vellum page with a quote was used to create the page in my junk journal and I just added paint to the background around it. I also outlined the umbrellas on the pattered paper above the quote, which matched the theme of the quote perfectly. Totally unplanned. I then wrote my journaling with my white paint marker.
You can see the opposite side of the quote image from the previous journal spread on the left journal page in this spread. I had stenciled a design on the right side of the journal spread and used a paint brush to write the quote. I doodled along the top of the spread with various pens and markers.
The following spread has images that I made with my Gelli Plate. I added a little bit of paint around them then adhered the flap of an envelope from a card that my husband gave me for our anniversary. I added a journaling card to the front of the envelope to add my journaling and when you flip the card up, you can pull out the card from the envelope.
I like using images from other artwork that I have created in my journals. This journal spread is no exception. I used the image of my original painting titled “Seeker” in this spread, as well as masks with ink on them and foam stamps. I again used my hand carved stamps for the date and used a gel pen for journaling. The small insert at the bottom was a piece of mail that I inserted with washi tape. I punched out butterflies from the small insert and adhered napkins over it. It gives it an almost stained glass appearance.
Does this next journal spread look familiar? I made it in my Flowering Faces video that you can find here.
I hoped you enjoyed looking at a few of my art journal pages in my daily journal and may have found a bit of inspiration.
Do you keep a daily journal, a junk journal or other art journal? I would love to hear about it or see!
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
