This Weeks Art Journal Pages

Over the weekend I picked up a Strathmore Visual Journal at AC Moore on sale. I have been having fun creating art journal pages and atcs. Here are the pages I created this week. You can click the images to get a larger view of the pages.

 

"Motivate"
“Motivate”
Created using watercolor crayons, oil pastels and ink on watercolor paper.
Created 2/24/2013

I was needing some motivation when I was creating this page.

 

"Friendship"
“Friendship”
Created using watercolor crayons, oil pastels and ink on watercolor paper.
Created 2/25/2013

I was thinking about the friendships I have especially the ones I have had since I was a teenager.

 

"Be Creative"
“Be Creative”
Created using tempera paint, acrylic paint and acrylic paint markers on watercolor paper.
Created 2/26/2013<br/
I was trying to not be simple. I love the background though the foreground still seems simple.

 

"Sometimes Things Don't Turn Out the Way You Like"
“Sometimes Things Don’t Turn Out the Way You Like”
Created using koi watercolors, oil pastels, sakura 3d glaze pens, acrylic paint on watercolor paper.
Created 2/28/2013

This did not come out how I wanted and it kept getting worse.

 

"Van Gogh"
“Van Gogh”
Created using koi watercolors, watercolor crayons, acrylic paint and sakura 3d glaze pen on watercolor paper.
Created 2/28/2013

Van Gogh is one of my favorite painters. This was my first attempt at a gel medium transfer. It didn’t come out very well. Hopefully as I do them more I will get better at it.
