Monday I returned LIVE for Mixed Media Monday after a week off for work travel.  I had a great time but was excited to return back to my studio and get that paint brush in my hand.  It was the last page of my 10 X 7 art journal that we started a couple months pack.  I wanted this page to be simple yet special to how I was feeling…….Here is what  painted:  


MATERIALS LIST:  Gesso, Decoupage & Paints (DecoArt – Bright Yellow and Saffron Yellow), PITT Artist Pens, Glaze & Gelatos (Faber Castell Design Memory Craft – Acqua, Boysenberry, Watermelon Rasberry, Margarita Mix, Blood Orange, Banana & Snow Cone), Ink (Tim Hotz and Marvy Uchida) and Charcoal Pencil


If you missed it LIVE it is recorded for your viewing pleasure and available on my YouTube Channel….HERE:


I used the NEW Faber Castell Glaze over it and LOVE it.  Here are some of the finer details….  


Thank you so much for joining me on this art journal journey.  The book is done and complete!  Boy does that feel great!  I will post a complete re-cap and video of the completed journal soon.  It is so bittersweet to complete an art journal and look back at it.  I can remember how I felt for each and every one of those pages.  It truly is a part of me that I am thrilled to be sharing.

 Thank you again for filling my heart and my Mondays with Mixed Media Mania!  I welcome everyone to join the Facebook Group HERE and share your projects!   Don't forget our May 2013 Creative Dare too! See you next Monday, May 20th LIVE at 6:00 pm (PST)
