Brand new fun mix media art stuff rocks thanks to my family…….. oh and I finally got to use the YES  glue on my collage birds and torn paper art.  YES what a strange name for glue ,must be an interesting story behind that name..  Any ways LOVE IT !!    it ‘s great for gluing small areas as its kind of hard to spread around, it’s pretty thick stuff.but I like it..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Torn paper kitty art by rosebudinnh

I have been playing with my new papers and experimenting with textures of papers and tearing them and using them in my art journals  trying to figure out this whole torn paper look , I am adding markers and some black ink and prints to them. I really need more black mulberry papers… got to look at the different types of texture papers….I am really enjoying this! what fun…..

poker page of black and white in my journal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI Had so much fun doing this black and white page ,with a splash of one other color. kind of manly.I have a bunch of fun pages . Got a box of fun from My husband…. of inks, geltos,stencils and pens……..this page I did make my own wavy lines stencils. and used texture magic on them. I know nothing about poker game so the cards may be helter skelter.LOL….I didn’t take the time to read the rules after I printed them out on the computer or I would have had a winning hand for sure.  … But it was all so fun to do up…..

Session 4-Focal Point: Words, Images Session 5-Details: Pen, Pencil

Session 4: Focal Point
Words-think magazine ads, alphabet stickers, newspaper headlines, print outs, etc.
Images-think magazines pics, downloaded graphics, die cuts, family photos, etc.

When you’re gathering supplies you might be tempted to hand pick items for each individual page. Don’t do it! Flip through your journal to get an idea for what you might want to use. CLOSE your journal then go to your stash and pick out a bunch of possible items to use as a focal point for your pages. Choose more than you will need so that you will have the freedom to change your mind or head in a different direction at the last minute.

If you need to secure any of your collaged items, this is a good time to do that. No time limit, just take whatever time you need to secure down any loose edges with whatever glue you prefer to use.

Session 5: Details
Pens-think drawing pens, paint pens, markers, gel pens, etc.
Pencils-think graphite, colored pencils, charcoal, pastels, chalks, etc.

You’re going to want a lot more time for this session but don’t cheat yet! Make simple marks and shapes, outline a few images, start a doodled border, etc. Just do a little something on each page.

All 5 sessions will take you an hour and 15 minutes. When you’re done, you might have a completed 20 page journal but it’s more likely that you will have 20 pages that you’re absolutely dying to continue working on! From here you can repeat the process again, or schedule your own 15 minute free play sessions where you make the rules. You might have some strong ideas about where you want your pages to go and you don’t feel like you need the time limit anymore. Go for it!!

journaling by 5’s Session 3-Pattern: Stamps, Stencils

well I finally got some free time to play today. and staying true to my nature the timer wasn’t set today.. I enjoy it more with out thinking of a timer. Kind of freaks me out… and makes me feel like school days and timed test. !!   Which I never seemed to handle well , Never do well under pressure.. But It just seemed like I would see things appear and I so wanted to do my idea it right away.. But I am trying so hard to stay in the rules best I can.. NEED TO Give my self a slap with a ruler on the hand.. LOL….. but I am having a hard time to stop working on the journal…….And just when I think I know what I am gonna do something else happens  and the page gets a totally different look…..so it’s a real fun time and thats what its all about

journaling by 5’s session 2 texture

Session 2: Texture
Collage/Craft-think die cuts, punched shapes, decorative borders, scrapbook paper, tags, stickers, washi tape, etc.
Recycled-think product packaging, receipts, candy wrappers, junk mail, book pages, note pads, etc.
These 2 categories are very similar but there is a difference: one is for items that are intended for craft purposes and you can typically buy them in a craft store. The other is for recycled items or things you find around your house. Make sense? It’s okay to tear these down into smaller pieces before you get started and make sure you have a variety to choose from. Use a glue stick, tape runner or other quick drying glue for this step. Just put a dab in the middle of the item and get it stuck down. You can go back later to secure the edges.

I decided to add a pocket to the journal because I used to add them in my atcs  book holders and thought why not. Now The whole timmer thing just isn’t working out for me . I find myself getting so involved with what I am doing that I kind of tune out everything else and things going on around me is basically back ground noise…… Not sure if it has to do with being in a large family and having lots of brothers and sisters all doing different things at the same time . So I used to tone out on things… My mom said I had selective hearing. And it works pretty much for me…..LOL… ok  I broke the rules again…. 15 minutes……. was more like an hour…. but I did do the whole book so , many I cheated a little, but I am enjoying the process of not thinking everything out and having no plan until It flashes before what that blue looks like water…. I have some graphics that goes with this!!!!!  and I was off and running again….. ok thanks for looking all.
