One thing I love to do is turn a planner into my art journal. The planner in the video is one I use just for Sunday. I take it to church with me and take notes in it. I also like to write down words to hymns that might speak to me that day. To make it more fun I like to add color and draw in it too. The first video is just a quickie of what my process looks like. The second one is long and I talk through it more. Hope you like. I would love to see what you are doing in your journals lately. Any holiday challenges you are going to participate in?
Hi Everyone, Thanks for the visit. I am so excited about my journey to get more art in my life. I did another palette video like the ones I mention in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of heART Journal Magazine. Please share your palettes with me @colorhealsme or@heartjournalmag
Buddha Boards are Fun! I love this little thing. It is easy to use and no mess. Great to do while watching TV
Welcome, Here is an image I doodled the other day onto heart shaped labels. You can print on shipping labels or treat as a coloring page and print on what every type of paper you love. Please download by tapping on the image. It would be great if you would share your project on instagram #decolabel or on our Facebook page. The image may look busy but I love to watercolor these and then use the labels in my art journal planner and on envelopes. Have fun!
If you had fun doing this and want a lot more fun images to color please consider the heART Journal Magazine Fall 2015 Coloring book. It is so fun to print these images on labels or to print small (nine pages to a sheet) and make ATCs
