Art Journal January 2011 Day 13, Milliande Art Journaling Videos How to Tutorial

Untitled Document


 
It is that time of the year again .Art Journal January ..a time to crack open a brand new art journal and let me and my muse loose amongst it's pages. I am interested in playing art ..not for any particular outcome in mind but for the sake of the process, of pushing myself to explore my limitations, my creative boundaries and then push a little harder to break right through them if my muse is game :-)

Art Journaling or Visual Journaling is becoming increasingly popular as an artform in and of itself . How to keep a journal or indeed how to keep an art journal is an individual choice each artist makes. Some keep a sketchbook type journal noting down snippets of each days activities, interesting things spotted and doodle sketches. Some create more of a diary like art journal working through the emotions and problems of each day . Some keep a journal with ideas for larger art projects . There is no right or wrong way on How to keep an Journal . Keeping an Art Journal can be as simple as one daily diary to keeping art journal stacks .. for different types of journaling .. the choice is endless and one can get as creative as the muse dictates .

Mixed Media Milliande Videos
Art Journal January 2011 Day 13
As many Mixed Media Artists like myself, I tend to go through phases of using different art supplies, playing with photography, art journaling, mixed media painting and fibre arts ... mostly .
Some of my favorite art supplies pen and ink drawing pens and dipping pens, watercolor aquabrushes and acrylic paints.. How to Paint ..How to Draw .. How to be Creative..these are questions many beginner artists ask themselves ..yet there is no hard and fast rule ..
here I share my process the way I taught myself how to paint.. the way I learned how to draw ..the way I play art .. I dont belive there are mistakes in art making it simply is how I express myself at the time I pick up a tube of paint..swing a pencil or carve a stamp ... no validity is necessary for me.. so take a peek at my process if you like in these how to video tutorials for mixed media art

For the past few years I have also created Art Journal January Videos Series, challenging myself on how long I can last in January to Art Journal and Video Tutorial a Page a day .. I have yet to manage a full month ;-) ...but here I will share all the art journaling videos day by day .. Sometimes the muse is challenged when put under time pressure... sometimes she simply thrives on the challenge.. so I let each day arise as it comes..rest assured all videos will remain available long after january has been put to rest :-)

Starting out at the end ...Z for Zebra's

 

Zebra Pattern Milliande Art Journal January 2011 Art Journaling as the Muse wants to play


Enough of the Zebra-- my Muse is no longer wishing to think about Zebra's :-)
So I have decided to let her play at will ... and see what fun she can come up with ..

NOTE:After 13 Days of constant journal keeping ..I am again intriqued by my own process .. I dont ever plan or set out knowing what my art journal page will become

I have received many emails of people wanting me to " speak and explain what I do , talking on the video etc " but that in essence is not possible for me ... because I actually dont know what I am doing until I am doing it ... I like to be surrounded by my art supplies...and I will simply gaze over my stash and something will grab me ..I mostly use what is to hand, what is in sight as it were.

I do not know whether I am going to shade here or smudge there, I do not know whether I place an picture here or there...and I dont know what the final composition will be...What you see is what I do in real time ..I dont prepare ahead... I dont have a pre-run before filming ...this is me ..raw as it happens .. I dont even edit the video ...
simply speed it up ...

I dont follow a particular style... I like to be as open as possible in the moment, in the flow of what might happen ... during the day before filming...I might play with the idea of a concept in my head, see what inspiration arises as I walk through my day that will offer me a starting point ... but thats it ..a starting point ..and then the empty page lets the muse do her thing as soon as I sit in front of it ...

So I may do things differently as other artists, I may not be a good enough teacher for you ...I may choose background music that some of you dont like ...i may not speak enough ..I may not show art supplies long enough ..etc etc ...

But this is what I am ABLE to do ..this is my process, my way ..... and you have the choice to take from it what resonates with you and leave the rest .... if you dont like my music ... you may turn the sound down and put something on form your music library that you prefer ... if I dont show the art supply long enough on the video ..feel free to pause it and rewind ... or take a peek at the list I provide at the end of the video page ... etc

!!! If I were teaching a class .. that would be different ..I would prepare ahead , plan it out, prepare .pdf's , prepare art supply lists , record slower videos etc etc ... but I am not ..I am sharing my daily art journaling process..with some tutorials on HOW I PLAY each day .. I record the night before, process the video in the morning , upload in the morning, then build the webpage with the vidoe... then process other artists submissions from the day before...then sent out the emails ... then start recording for the next day ... there is no time in my day for anything else in January ... ... it is my choice ...and I relish the challenge...

I try and accomodate my viewers as best as I am able ... but I wish to stay true to who I am and what I am physically capable off in the process :-) ..and I thank you for respecting that :-)



without further ado ... Day 13

Zebra Pattern Milliande Art Journal January 2011 Taking Lines for a Walk

Inspired by the S
ymmetry of
a Taking Lines for a Walk

~ there is one video

FIRST STEP
~ create an art journal page -- start with one pen/aquabrush/ paintbrush line and let is " walk over the page ... If it wants to go straight go straight ..if it wants to skip skip ... if it wants to twirl twirl ... take a moment to breathe before you start...release any expectations ...and then fill the page with a walking line

SECOND STEP

~ " Find Shapes in the line walk pattern" .. let your eyes gaze over the linewalk pattern and try and see images, shapes that resonate and want to be part of a figure, a recognisable shape, a hourse, a flower, an animal etc ...explore and expand these shapes until they take on an identity of their own ...then creatively elaborate the background to suit the found shapes

take a peek how I played ...
