Hello all !! I have another journal page to share with you. I guess today I had flowers on the brain. I acutally had been thinking about flowers for a few weeks now, but just never had the intention of putting out in my art journal until I couldn't take it anymore and had to get it out, lol. I guess with the summer starting to whine down ever so slowly I just thought I might create something in the spirit of summer and all the pretty flowers. So thats what this page is all about, and also just taking the time out to enjoy life and be happy. Like the old saying goes, sometimes you just have to stop and smell the flowers(I know it's roses and not flowers, but hey it's my art and my journal page, lol !!). Until next time, take care !!!

Playing with Texture

Good evening lovies ! I have been wanting to experiment and play around a little with texture in my art journal but I guess I never really had the nerve to, lol. So I decided today would be the day to stop being afraid and start, and this what I came up with. I used a variety of papers, scraps, cut outs, ribbon, stickers, and sooooooo much more stuff. I think the page turned out pretty darn good if I must say so myself:) The only thing is now waiting for all those layers of Mod Podge to dry, lol ! Until next time, hugs and kisses, muh !!!!

Hi ! Remember Me ?????????

Ahhhhh, it feels so good to be back ! :) I know I have been gone for so long and have not posted anything in like months, but it's hard to do with school and every day life stuff. I finally have the time to get into the swing of things and do some much, much, much needed creating. It's not really much to share but it's a start no of the less. I have recently new art journal which is just nothing but a watercolor pad that I am using as a "starter journal" just to get into the art world. So far it has help a great deal and has sparked sooooooooooooo many ideas in my head that I don't know where to start, lol ! I am not going to promise to post everyday, but I am going to try and post at least once or twice a week to start off with and work my way up from there :). So until next time enjoy some new art work ! Much Love :) !!! a

First Art Diary Entry-Purple Glitter Heart


   Hi Guys ! I know it;s been so long since my last post, with me just getting back into the swing of school and plus daily life stuff made it somewhat difficult to create let alone post. I finally had a little (I do mean a little) down time today to put in my first entry into my new art diary. It's just something simple, quick, and easy that I created using some junk mail flyers that I got in the mail the other day. I just glued some of the pages together to make them more sturdy, painted it using a mixture of purple and magenta added some glitter glue that I smeared on top with a heart shape, a few journal blocks, and viola !, done in a snap. The rest of the pages were taken from an other journal that I started a while back and I just transferred them into my new journal, so I am not going to show those. I hope everyone had a great weekend, see you next time !

                                                                       XOXOX,

Friday Night Art and New Journal !!!!!!


A while back while crusing the craft store I saw this mix medi paper pad that caught my eye. I had never really heard of this type of paper before and from what I read on the front of the pad it's good for wet and dry media. Snice I work with wet and dry media, and snice I was looking for paper that can take mix media "abuse" I figured I give it  try. So for this post I did two experimental peices just to see how the paper would hold up and I have come to a conclusion........
I LOVE THIS PAPER !!!!!


These are just two experiment peices that I did, nothing really fancy just some painting with some acrylics and black india ink, while the secomd one I used some chalk pastels, covered the page with matte finish mod podge, and did some stamping over the top. Now that I know what I can do with this paper I can create some pretty interesting journal pages with it, in which I can put into my brand new journal that was delivered a few days ago :)




This is a new clean up page that I started as well on canvas paper. Can't wait to see how this will turn out ! :)
Take care and have a great weekend !
XOXO, Creative Diva

New Year = New Art

 Happy New Year everyone !!!!!! I hope you guys had a safe and enjoyable holiday. I am starting off the New Year with some new artwork that is apart of a current art journal that I am working on. This particular journal is somewhat personal, it's an art therapy journal(which is the career field that I want to get into after school), in which I create pages just based on whats on my mind, my mood, my day, and my overall emotions. These are just some of the few pages that I have done.

 This is sort of a journaling block pages, which I haven't written any thing on it yet. I created this using India ink and some slik flowers I just placed on lower corner, down the side, and one at the top.

 

For this page I created just some hearts in purple and a light green all over the page and colored in the background using a two-tone effect, and wrote the word "Love" in the middle. This page was done using oil pastels, which is one of my favorite mediums to use in my work.

Lastly, this is just a drawing of a girl that I did using chalk pastels, and then in which I took some Mod Poge and painted over the drawing with it just to seal it so the chalk won't smudge. I love how it changes the look and feel of the drawing giving it a shiny smooth finish to it. Another thing I discovered when using the Mod Podge the colors of the chalk tend to blend together creating a greater effect of the drawing.



These are not apart of the art therapy journal but I thought I share these as well. These are pages I created using the clean up paper for when I do my art journal pages and other projects and I may smear paint on the paper or use it to clean my brushes or things like that. I cut the paper up into fours, took some pastels, paint markers, and stamps to create these leftover pieces. I love how they all came out. I may use these pages in my homemade smash book/journal which I will be starting soon, so more details on that coming later :) ! Until I hope you enjoyed this post, keep creating, and I will talk to you soon

Much Love :) !!
