I’m having so much with this art journaling
Facebook group I’m in!
I’m trying new things,
but still the hardest part for me is the
“journaling’ part of art journaling.
 And of course, I’m running behind.
The prompt was birds.
I struggled with this for a week,
wondering what to do.
Then I was cleaning out my stamping drawers,
trying to get organized once again,
and I came across this little steampunk bird stamp.
And I knew that was the bird I would use.

I mixed that with a couple other stamps,

did some tangling, and came up with a suitable

quote from Leonardo Da Vinci.

And called it done.

I will probably add more to this spread,

but for now I am happy with it.

And I got to use a bunch of product

that I don’t use very often.

This was built in my Strathmore Mixed Media journal.

Background color is a variety of Golden Fluid Acrylic paints, 

Tim Holtz Distress Inks, metallic rub-on color, regular Pitt Artist Pens, and metallic Pitt Artist Pens.

Stamps are from a company called Deep Red.

I also used: Derwent Inktense Pencils, microns, Sharpie fine point pens, Uni-ball Signo pens, gelly roll pens, and Copic alcohol markers.

  1. Oh wonderful – I was wondering what you'd used & you must have known the question!! I love the way you have melded all the individual parts into a cohesive whole with the bird facing the lady. The bird reminds me of a Carolina or Mandarin Duck & the quote is absolutely perfect. Paula (PEP)
