Cat and Butterflies Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

I am trying something new, and that is doing the art challenge for Oddball Art Co! I am in love with her designs! I just found her (I know, I am behind the times, lol) but now that I found her I want all the digi stamps, lol

I was inspired by the theme, which is “Life Size Leprechauns and Unlucky Clovers.”

I found this fantastic cat on her website I knew that the cat should be on a rock in a field of clovers.

I used college elements for the rock and the four leaf clovers. I used dictionary pages for the background with distress ink, paint, and stencil.

By adding butterflies and dots and quotes to the page I was able to add a lot more interest. I am really loving challenges, I think it allows me to grow as an artist and expand my abilities.

New Beginnings Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

Today we have a page for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Art Journal and this journal’s theme is New Beginnings.

I love this theme, and it reminded me of springtime and caterpillars turning into butterflies. 

This page is an update to the vintage pattern collage girls that I have done in the past. You can visit that blog post here:

It was a lot of fun to revisit this technique and improve upon the designs and add more detail. The traveling art journal is expanding my boundaries and helping me be more creative.

I hope you enjoyed this take in new beginnings. What makes you think of a new beginning and how would you journal it?

Mixed Media Collage Art #1

Hello Everyone!

I have really been getting into collages. It is a fun way to explore my creative process and really stretch me creatively.

I started with a canvas board and added acrylic paint and stencils and stamps and splatters to add detail and dimension to the background.

Once I was happy with the background I added the collage pieces on top. I like to find images in magazines and catalogs. You never know what can be combined to create an art piece.

To finish the piece I added details with paint pens. I think that added he detail that the piece was missing. 

This was a lot of fun and I will continue to explore my collage capabilities this year. 

Where do you fine images to use in your collages?
