Fun art journal spread. Notice the hand holding the Vacuum cleaner? It was just a scrap of paper I found on the floor from another project and it looked like the perfect alien hand!
Halloween is one of my favorite “Making” Seasons. This month I decided to use one large parent sheet of watercolor paper to make this journal for spooky halloween images and Edgar Allen Poe quotes, just general mischief and mayhem!!!
I used Arches cold press watercolor paper, Distress Stains and Golden Fluid Acrylics
Met up with the owners from Foxy Fix. It was their first time at the stationary show as well. It is always great to meet someone that you tak with on the phone or via email.
I went to a few tourist spots in the evenings. I love New York City, the streets have their own song and everything is so vibrant. I always feel that I could move here and then I feel the crowds of people and realise I could never live there. Way too many people for me.
I did manage to a little journaling in the hotel
My Moleskine Planner
I love to make books and when I make a painty or repurposed journal I call it my Urban Graffiti series
This book was made out of a file folder using tons of paint, gesso, ink and of course my gelli plate
One of the inside pockets filled with tags
I cut openings in the cover so that the images could peek through
You can see some of the tags peeking through the openings
This was a fun journal / book to make
In the store we use cups and saucers, the cups are for our brushes and the saucers we use as paint palettes. Repurposing something and making it pretty.
Just a gratuitous Gelli Plate photo. Can’t help myself. Tonight I used powder as a resist technique in between the layers of paint. Great Texture!!
