Mid Month Mini Mission Inspiration – Horizon

Here’s a mixed media 4×8 art tag for the mid month mini mission inspiration for the month of November.

I’ve used watercolour cardstock, a dictionary page showing the word Horizon, watered down brown ink and black pencil lines. The 5/8″ turquoise circles are punched from some card stock and glued down.

A bit abstract, but quite fun to create!

About my label maker…

I’ve been asked many times about the label maker that I use to add quotes and phrases to my art journal projects. I find using it a really quick and effective way to add words and graphics to a project without having to mess around with individual letter or alphabet stamps and inks or the torturous hand done lettering that I’m never ever happy with!

For me it’s an important and in my humble opinion, inexpensive piece of equipment that has multiple craft/art room applications, not only for my art projects but also for organising my art supplies and resources.

There are many different models of label maker, but the one that I have and favour is a middle of the road model that didn’t break the bank. The label cartridge refills in my opinion are also inexpensive and can be purchased in different colours if you’re feeling the need!

I’ve located the same model that I own on Amazon UK and Amazon USA, without testing them both however I can’t be 100% sure that they’re the same thing.

These are Amazon affiliate linked so any purchases made using these links may result in a small (very small) commission for me which goes towards funding my website & YouTube channel.

Art Journal Page – J52-WK1 – Portal

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away when I first started to art journal I struggled for ideas and inspiration for page content. Then I discovered Journal52.com, problem solved! I followed each week like a devotee and even started to create a few YouTube videos using the weekly prompts, then in 2016 the website changed hands and I didn’t like the new direction the website was heading so I stopped visiting…now in 2017, they’re doing things in a way I like, so I’m gonna start to play along once again..so here’s Week#1

The prompt is “PORTAL”, make of that what you will, a doorway, gateway, opening…Each week Journal52.com will give us a graphic and a little prompt help.

The full sized printable version of the prompt card & wordage can be found in the following locations: FACEBOOK GROUP HERE: http://facebook.com/groups/journal52 WEBSITE HERE: http://journal52.com

 

Week1 – Portal

I have of course filmed my entire process from start to finish, so if you’d like to see how I created my page, then simply click the YouTube image below.
