In today’s video I have a closer look on the Paul Rubens Oil Pastels and the new Arrtx acrylic markers. I have you to tell in advance, that I am not an oil pastel artist! I love mixed media and I use oil pastels in my sketchbook to add some accents or for mark making in my art journal. For this purpose I am really happy with both sets. The pastels are super creamy and blend really nicely. The acrylic markers have a brush tip and are permanent once they are dry! This is awesome, as I’ve never seen something like that.
Today’s video is my first Inktober project. I will make 31 abstract collages using at least one ink product on every spread. I will not upload a YouTube video every day, but I will try to post a daily video over on my Instagram page and I will also share here on my blog. In case you like to join me for this challenge, use the hashtag #abstractinktober and tag me over on Instagram, @susanne_rose_art, that I can share your work in my stories.
I am creating in my Dina Wakley Media Journal today. As it’s almost completely full I try to finish up the last pages. For my spread I am using an embossing resist technique with white powder and watercolors. I am adding texture with watercolor pencils and of course some of my new mixed media stamps. My focal image is one of the cute birdies from my Textured Birds stamp set.
In today’s video I show you how easy you can create an easy art journal spread with stamps and Distress Inks and Oxide Ink Pads. This technique is perfect to use in your art journal, on scrapbooking layouts or handmade greeting cards. I am using my brand new stamps set, the Pencil Marks #6. They are available together with a bunch of other new clear sets over in our shop.
Quick abstract spread to get some creative time after a busy day. What’s your way to put art into just a few minutes? Playing quickliy without too much thinking helps me to loosen up and to get new ideas. On this spread I used a flower from my brand new Pencil Marks 6 stamp set. You will find it in the shop together with many other new clear sets.
Today’s video is a playful process in my junky art journal. It’s handmade and I love to create grungy and colorful spreads in it. For the main images on the page I used some loose colored stamped images from my Sketchy Flowers #1 and the Sketchy Flowers #3 sets. On the background I worked with Liquitex Acrylic Gouache.
Playing abstract with watercolors is one of my favourite habits to take some creative minutes off on a busy day. It’s an relaxing, joyful and intuitive process. I combine the watercolors with other materials like pencils, crayons and stamps.

I’m sharing two pages in my mini collage art journal today using some of the papers I made in one of my latest videos. I also played with stamps from my Carved Collection 1 and the Pencil Marks 4.
I love creating these small pages, it’s a nice creative exercise
