Art Journal Online - Art Journaling by Artist Lorrie


~ Art Supplies used



Art Supplies:


Supplies I used:

transferred images from magazine cutouts
golden gel medium
Heat gun
gesso
Zap Pen
Remenisce gel pen
stamps and stamp pads
acrylic paints
glaze medium
charcoal pencil
water crayons & pencils

I was inspired by the beautiful Redwood trees that we have in Northern California for the picture on the right. The picture on the left was inspired by a magazine picture. We have lots of old trees in this area. On one of my walk routes there is a old huge Chestnut tree. Every time I walk past it I hug it! Yes, I confess, I'm a tree hugger :)

Sentiment on left side says:

"Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven". R. Tagore

Thank you for submitting your art journal page


~ What a beautiful quote ... Trees have such a way of being present both with the earth energies and the sky energies at the same time .. reaching out both ways .. perfect balance ..

~ I enjoy the mixed media background collage yellows... such rich hues that set of the tree perfectly ... inviteing me for a swing ..

~ And on the right hand side of your art journaling page.. it looks like a tree spirit is keeping watch

thanks for sharing, happy art journaling

Earthy Calming Colors!
by: Carolee

I really love the color combinations...so earthy...and calming. I too like the "tree spirit face" in the tree trunk. Beautiful....I just like to stare at this picture and study it..

Thin Art Journal Pages
by: milliande

Yes, art journal pages will curl and buckle of wet media like watercolors or acrylic paints are added... also glues that have a hight water content and gel medium can have the same effect

For Mixed Media art journaling it would be a good idea to buy an art journal that contains a heavy grade ( 300 gr or more) or a hot pressed watercolor paper like fabriano ... whcih withstands a lot of creative mixed media techniques...

If cost is an issue... glueing pages of sketchbooks or altered books together can increase the durability .. simply add pva glue or gel medium to glue 2-3 pages together ..and it gives you a stronger base to work with

hope this helps

Tree Hugger
by: Kelly Watts

Well done fellow tree hugger! Trees are so peaceful and they truly do call out to the Heavens for their creator. These pages are done with my favorite colors "Earthy Elements" and I happen to LOVE trees in any art work. You have captured them beautifully. Thanks for sharing your lovely work.

Colors and curl
by: Corliss

I agree with Milliande on all counts! Besides orange and yellow being my favorite colors - they are happy colors. Actually pulled out a sketchbook yesterday and painted two pages in those colors. But question to anyone willing to answer: do your pages curl like crazy? Should I use only sketchers that allow for wet media?
Thanks for all the inspiration on this site and thank you for submitting your page.
