As promised last week, I am sharing my updated Buildable Art Journal Pages with you today. Hello all! xoxo

I started the pages from this to this to —–>what you see above and below.

I used Tangie’s Buildable Art Journal Pages plus I also did some creative Word Art on notebook paper as you can see.

The above page is direct from Tangie’s {Studio Box Workshops No. 1} Buildable Art Journals. I used it to journal our trip to the Jersey Shore last week, and about family visiting from out-of-state over the weekend. After it was printed with the digital gesso overlay, and the digital days of the week on it, by hand, I doodled and journaled with my markers – which included Copics, and Sharpies.

Here are my other pages that I completed this week. One was a doodling page with the base created from Tangie’s Buildable Art Journals, and the other was just a notebook paper that I used to make word art on.

First, let’s look at the Doodling Page and inspiration.

On this page, I used various markers: Copics, Tombows, and scrapbooking markers. The Copics and Tombows work best on printed inkjet paper, and the scrapbooking marker works for small areas but not for larger areas.  There are also stickers on this page, and some water-soluble crayons too. Working inside circles was a neat creative challenge that I haven’t done before.

Second, here is my word  art page. Since my weekly planner page above was based on our trip to the Jersey Shore this week, I looked for a quotation on travel. “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent in the ideas of living.” Miriam Beard

This was a fun page to experiment with different styles of lettering and doodling.

The steps to creating this page were to

  1. write out the quote varying the lettering for each word
  2. add the lines between the words (I know sometimes this is usually done first)
  3. color in the words
  4. doodle in the spaces between the lines
  5. color in behind the words
  6. color in the doodles
  7. add details

 

And I’d like to show you some of the talent that inspired me:

First, two examples from my extremely talented friend JoAnne Sharpe, (who offers art journal workshops in Fairport, NY if you are in the area -email her to join her email list, email is on her blog):

 

Love the flowers

 

 

I hope you are inspired and have fun with Tangie’s Buildable Journals!
