52 Weeks of Art Journals - Butterfly Art Journal

Here is the Butterfly art journal that is part of the 52 Weeks of Art Journals.  The Butterfly is made from wood and then covered with glitter - I have a few pots that I am trying to use up. I have added some collage and paint to some of the pages in preparation for when I next work in them.

You can get wooden shapes and attach them to your art journals and decorate them.

Here is one of the pages that is being prepared waiting for additional paint and other elements.

Check out the video HERE

At the end of the video I share an art journal process page

Hope you enjoy

Art Journal Page - Doodle Art


In todays video we are going to create this page.  

You can see the video below.  It was fun to create, the pages were prepped beforehand, which makes creating a lot easier as you don't have to worry about the whole process.

I did a flip through of the art journal which you can see below.

It is one of my mini art journals that I shared

I love working in journals of all sizes, the smaller ones work well if you want to create on a smaller size and you have limited time.  Either way spending time being creative on a daily basis is important for your health and wellbeing.

Check out the art journal playlist on my YouTube channel.  For additional exclusive content you can check me out on my Patreon platform.

Mini Art Journal - 52 Art Journals Series


Here is the latest Mini Art Journal which is part of the 52 Art Journal Series.  In the video I do a flip through of the art journal and I also work on a page.  These are great to have so that you can add details when you just want to do a little bit or want to at least show up and do something creative in your journal

You can see the video HERE 

Here is a couple of the pages from the journal

I go through the journal once created and add some background images and colors and it is a nice jump up point when return to work on the pages.

I share with you in the video how I would work on a page like this so watch it to the end :)

If you are interested in learning some of my techniques why not join me on one of my courses: - check them out HERE

I know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Art Journal Page


Come and join me as I share an Art Journal Page using the same name as the book by Maya Angelou - I know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Great book if you have not read it yet, Amazon has a reduced price at the moment.  Check out the video below:

I show you from start to finish how I would work on a page, using Neo-colors and stencils and some pens at the end.

This is a good example of using up the paint on your pallet and using it to create an image in your art journal. Hope you enjoy seeing how it takes shape.
