Art Journal Caravan 2014 is Ready to Depart for the Final Time!

Early Bird Price for the Art Journal Caravan“Not all those who wander are lost” that is our theme for 2014!

Let’s make this the best year ever, really allowing ourselves the freedom to explore and MOST IMPORTANTLY learning to ENJOY THE JOURNEY! It is the PROCESS not the finished result that is important. There is no such thing as an ugly or unworthy journal page, there is only the process of discovery. Allow yourself to enjoy your art, allow yourself to mess up, to fail, to be bad, to make mistakes. In reality that is true success, the real freedom art journaling brings. . Let’s embrace the process together as we “WANDER” and explore on the LAST EXPEDITION of the Art Journal Caravan!

Herman Rorschach on Google

I got quite a kick out of the new Google doodle today–I clicked through more than my fair share of those ink blots giggling to myself. I thought it might be fun to revisit the ink-corporated art dolls in the store! Today only get 50% off in honor of Hermann Rorschach’s birthday!

If you’ were a sponsor/backer of the Studio don’t forget to check the backer’s only blog (you can find the link in the backer’s only Kickstarter updates)! We’ve gotten so much done but there is still so far to go! We are excited about our progress though and would love to show it off!

Art Journaling 102: Technique Focus – Misty Overlays!

Art Journaling 102:

Technique Feature -

Misty Overlays



by Julie Ann Shahin, Studio Tangie Social Media Team

I’m very pleased to share with you today an Art Journaling Technique Feature demonstrating Studio Tangie products: Misty Overlays. Heather, Deb, Rain, and I have created examples using Misty Overlays for you.

They look like alcohol ink sprays! Tangie provides .png files that you just drag onto your page. So fast and easy, and no mess!

Inspiration for Misty Overlays by the Studio Tangie Creative Team



Had so much fun watching how the overlays played effortlessly off of each other, I didn’t want to pile too much stuff in their way.
