Interactive Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends! usually an art journal page is a spread of two papers or even just one paper. But today I want to share with you an Interactive Art Journal Page which is basically four pages or two spreads! As you can see there is a large spread and in the center of it a smaller page with both sides designed.         Interactive Art Journal Page The secret to this page is to create two different sizes of pages so the smaller page will be in the front while the large spread is in the back. They are both visible because the smaller spread doesn’t cover the spread underneath. To create this Interactive Art Journal Page I worked simultaneously on all sides and when the background was finished I cut the top spread into size. This created the little spread in the center. Then I could add details to the different sides of the pages.   …

There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page. This page has a lot of layers and color and some unique ways to add words as well.   There Are Always two of Us Art Journal Page First I created the background for this page with tissue papers, stamps and papers. I also added a little spraying to add a little color. Although most of the background is in neutral black and white. The thing that gives the background its texture and interest are the different patterns and sizes of writing and stamps.         Then I added an image of a boy looking at two images I created with stencils. One image is dark and the other is light. These two images are the focal point of the page that talks about two sides in each person. The final thing was to add the text. …

Online Classes are up for grabs!

Hi dear crafty friends! I have an announcement to make! Online Classes are up for grabs! As you all know one of my great passions is teaching. Being able to share my knowledge with others, inspire them and help them create fills my life with joy. For awhile I’ve been searching for a way to teach beyond the weekly video tutorials which are limited in time and content volume and the VIP Room which is a long term commitment. I’m happy I found a way to overcome both these limitations.      Online Classes are up for grabs! My online classes are all hosted on a private classroom that gives me, as a teacher, the option to teach in a variety of tools like PDF files, links, video tutorials and more as well as interact with my students. Each class has a class forum that is dedicated to the class subject only and allows the students to ask me questions, …
