Mucking Around in My Art Journal II & Giveaway


Here's the second installment of "Mucking Around" in my art journal.  No plan, no destination - just playing in my art journal with no particular goal in mind.

This art journal page started as a "mop up" page as I was working on my lessons for 21Secrets (you can still purchase this "forever yours" class by the way - it's pretty amazing -- 21 artists share videos, techniques, tutorials, etc. for $98).  The page sat idle since February, and then I returned to it to use up excess paint on my palette.  It's wonderful what "mucking around" can lead to!

I used the "Becoming" stencil from StencilGirl Products for the words.  

Here's an under-7-minute video of the process - the good, the bad and the ugly!  Enjoy.



You can also watch "Mucking Around in my Art Journal Volume II on YouTube here.

GIVEAWAY ALERT! 



I will giveaway one of the BECOMING stencil to someone who comments below!  Check back to THIS POST next Tuesday to find out who the lucky winner is.  PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT.  

And the winner is!

  8. It was fun to see you paint straight out of the tube! Why does this seem so daring? I use small brushes too sometimes, so I'm going to save the pallet paper and go straight for the tube. I loved seeing how your colors evolved. It's alright not to get it right before the flowers are painted!

  11. Such a beautiful page. I love it. It's odd how some of the most beautiful things manifest themselves when you're relaxed and just playing around, but also makes perfect sense.

    Love your stencils. Thanks for the opportunity to win one. Songseeker@gmail.com :-)

  24. This was so much fun to watch. It's somewhat the way I paint. I am following on IG and won your piece through jennibellie. It is so different than the drawing you are putting on IG. You are certainly multi talented!
