I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of art journaling and mixed media art, but it’s only recently that I decided to give it a try myself. I’ve been taking some classes here and there and just playing around a bit. Here is the very first canvas I created recently. I hesitate to post it, because a.) I am a beginner and b.) I’m not sure if it’s finished yet! LOL (photos are straight from my phone, so pardon the quality.)
First, here’s a quick shot of my workspace:
It’s in the basement and pretty dark. 😉
Here’s a shot I shared on Facebook after I completed the first layer or so:
And the finished (?) piece:
It’s looking pretty dark on here so hard to tell. Here’s a side shot.
I’m thinking I may need to break out my regular camera. But at least this gives you an idea. Here are a couple of in-process pieces I’ve started. Not sure what I am going to do with them yet.
Again, I’m so new to this but I am having fun playing. And who knows? Maybe something will make it into my designs at some point. 😉
I’m looking forward to delving into making an actual art journal soon and probably filling it with some inspirational quotes. I plan on sharing on this blog, so if you’re interested, please feel free to comment. I’d also love to hear from those of you who may do this already or, like me, are complete beginners!
Thanks for stopping by!
p.s. I have a Pinterest board I started for collection some inspiration. If you’d like to check it out, it’s right here. If you have one, let me know!
