Quick and Easy a Journal

Standard

Journaling on the QuickDebbie Davis is a mixed media artist who finds creating art to be a wonderful stress reliever. She plays a lot in the paint and other mixed media mediums whenever a chance comes her way. She also like painted backgrounds which she loves to keep in her journal books her favorite being a vintage ledger binder that she picked up from an antique store.

That said, she is always raring to go. However, while on a vacation, she did not get a chance to do much and on getting back she thought hard on what she could do at home and work that would look more of a journal.

With a blank mind, she chose to use a previously created background randomly made by scraping pink, yellow and blue/green paints. Within the paints there had been a loose mixture of some white fluid acrylic paint onto the ledger journal page using an old store card.

With a photo that she had always wanted to use in a journal, she copied and pasted it into a Word document and resized it so that it would fit on the journal page. The whole thing was looking so calm. She then collaged the photo with cabanas that she had gotten from a scrap paper.

Then using a Stabilo pencil she outlined the photo and cabanasand lightly went over the pencil with a wet brush.

Writing of words was next which she did with the Stabilo pencil.  The words made the whole artwork stand out.
