In today’s video I am creating three spreads in my mini art journals from left over papers. Last weekend I took a class from Laura Horn and made a bunch of collages and now I wanted to get rid of all these paper scraps. The journals I am working in are super cheap sketchbooks. The bigger one is from the Action store, the smaller one is from Gerstaecker. As main images I am using stamps from Sketchy Leaves and Inks Friends.
In today’s process video I am creating an intuitive and relaxing spread in my Moleskin watercolor art journal. I really love these kind of making art to calm down, relax and get my creative juices flowing. The process is purely intuitive and without any pressure. I explore markmaking, mixed media techniques and color palettes while creating the page. I also used a few stamps to add more interest. Click on more to watch the process video.
In today’s video I am creating a mixed media art journal page in my watercolor journal from Kunst & Papier. I’m making a collage background first and add color with the water-soluble Neocolor crayons. For my main images I am using my Textured Birds stamp set together with a gelli print.

I’m creating a spreads today in my cheap sketchpad from Action. I often do this when I want to get rid of my left over collage scraps. I am glueing the papers down intuitively and add different mark makings on top with stamps, crayons and posca markers. If you want to see how I make my collage papers I have the playlist with all the videos linked in the post
I’m sharing the making some grungy mixed media tags today over on my YouTube channel. I had so much fun to create them. To create textured I stamped the background with gesso, that creates a nice effect when you go on top with watercolors. Click on more if you want to see the video and also close-up images of my finished tags.
