“Stardust” – May Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration

May 2019 – Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration

Time for a new mid-month mini Mission: Inspiration art challenge and this month as the wonderful Doris Day has recently passed away I thought I’d do a small tribute and use a line from one of her early songs as our song lyric prompt for the month of May.

From the song “A Song in My Heart” (1950).

For me, the words Heaven and portal bring to mind images of swirling blues and cream colours and circles, so that’s what I went with for the basis of my art journal page that you can see above. To watch how I created the page from start to finish, simply click the YouTube link below.

Day 7 – 7 Days of Christmas – Be a Unicorn!

For Day 7 of my 7 Days of Christmas series for 2018 I’m doubling up with a project from the Mission: Inspiration Mid Month Mini Mission over on our Facebook group (link below). The word this month is “Unicorn”. Please feel free to download the graphic below to use in all your online posts.

I first drew out a sketched version of my Unicorn head, then traced it onto black cardstock using white graphite papers from Royal Langnickel. I then went over the lines using, white, silver and gold Signo opaque rollerball pens. It’s one of the unique things about art journaling, is that it can take whatever form, shape or colour you want. Some days you want to do add lots of layers, sometimes you don’t!

Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration – October – Shelter

This is my art journal page for the Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration for the month of October. The word this month is “Shelter”.

I found a great quote from a John Denver song to go with my focal image. The colours for the page were sampled from the colours of the focal image. To watch how I created the whole page, from start to finish, click the YouTube link below.
