Art Journaling YouTube Hop.... Together,,,

Hello and welcome my dear blog readers,

today I want to show you a special blog post.

 I was asked by Keren Tamir if I would like to join in for the

 Art Journaling YouTube Hop  which is organized by her.

There was no time for me to think about it, I did not want to miss that chance.

That`s why I`m so excited....

But before I will start with my  story behind my art journaling,

I will say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the sponsors.

Image may contain: text
One of this prizes can be yours... by following the rules..

Rules: 1. leave a comment on each video.

           2. Subcribe to each art journaling hop artist channel.

The winner will be chosen randomly from different channels.

Easy right!!!

I will show you a video tutorial where I create a page for my

fariytale, whimsical art journal book in the size 15 cm x 15 cm.

With fashion kids photos from magazines or pinteres.

TIP: open your heart and mind to something new like a new art journal technique.

I have three different art journal books.

One book is  from Ranger and two handmade books. All these books are different.

I use one book for my urban and architecture sketches which I combine with

vintage photos, stamps, watercolor and washi tape. I like to use images, stamps

and drawing elements to communicate my feelings and mood.

TIP: convey all of your emotions in your art jounal. Trust your intuition.

My second art journal is a handmade art journal in the size 24 cm x 32 cm.

I used these pages to test new colors or try to see how new stamps and stencil looks.

For me is this art journal an exercise book....I can mess this up, my journal is for my own

 self-expression and creative development, so there are no wrong pages...

TIPS: to keep colors vibrant, dry between each layers,

 this helps to prevent making colors muddy.

 Using stamps is a great way to add visual interest to your background.

Using highlights (White pen) or shadows (black pen) help make your art journal

page more dimensional.

Be creative with washi tape and tissue paper.

Different paper made a different color result.(watercolor-paper, special stamp paper....)

Never think that you are not good enough to enjoy a creative life...

There is beauty in imperfection...

Let be creative together...

Finnabair modeling-paste and black gesso, regular white cardstock, Acrylic- medium,
