“Set for Spring” Collage Art Journal Page

Today I’m using a really cute image I found in a free magazine from our local pet shop! As soon as I saw it, inspiration struck and I knew exactly what I wanted to create! The trick was to translate it from the image in my head onto a real art journal page! I also used a napkin with a leaf pattern that I received in some happy mail some months ago! The colours used were Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays in Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber & Spiced Marmalade. Click below to watch to watch the whole process from start to finish!

Using a fan brush to paint autumn trees.

I recently watched a YouTube video by Kevin Smith ( a young Bob Ross type artist without as much hair!) who demonstrated a great technique with fan brushes, so I decided to give it a go!

This is my experimental attempt at using my fan brushes to try and paint some autumn themed trees and foliage with acrylic paints. Click below to watch how I created the autumn page above!
