Another art journal page

Well, I've been playing in my art journal in between painting my boxes. Every time I had leftover paint it went somewhere on a page. I'm starting to get the hang of it. I decided to use it as a kind of practice journal for full bodied figures, but didn't feel like covering the background with gesso everytime I want to put a figure on top. So I drew my girl on a seperate page and then glued it in my art journal.

Now I don't know whether I like that. It's a bit too clean for my taste. I have some more of these girls glued in somewhere aleady, so I'll finish those, but for the rest of the pages I might try something else again. We'll see ...

My boxes are slowly getting finished. Most of the painting is done, now they need those finishing touches. Here's another sneak peek at one of them:

This one is really so much fun to make. I love using those bold colors, and now I'm going to start doing some zentangling and doodling on it. Keep an eye out for the finished box!

Tomorrow it's time for the summer of color again. I have the background ready to go!

Thanks so much for visiting here! I really appreciate your comments, and I'm hoping to get back to your blogs by the end of the week.

Enjoy your day!


  1. I really like your girls page. My randomness never looks this good. :) Boxes look fabulous as well.

  2. Your journal page is great and your box is FANTASTIC!!! How funky is that?!? i love it! Love the bold colors, the design... I could so see these being sold in gift shops or boutiques. Wonderful!
    Thank you so much for introducing me to such a wonderful artist (in your previous post) from Russia. This is why i love blogging to much - there are so many new discoveries. I LOVE her work. Loved every piece i saw here. Thank you. xoxo

  3. i do the same thing with left over paint, it makes for pages ready to go at a whim and for interesting art... things i could not plan for.

    fun to hear how you did the top piece, it looks wonderful as does your lively and wonderful box.
