Welcome to Art Journaling and Mixed Media Creative Ideas!

Beautiful girl with honey hair

Today is the Romanian National Day, La mulΘ›i ani, Romania! πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄πŸ‡·πŸ‡΄

Im drawing and painting again in my Mixed Media CANSON journal and as I’m drawing this face, I rediscovered my junk journal sitting in my stash. It’s time to bring this journal to life again, but that’s another blog post – I just wanted to remind you that junk journals can be such a great fun, and I still have mine to play with. I know people visiting my blog are vwey much in love with the junk journal process, so I’ll keep on posting about it πŸ™‚

Now back to this girl you already saw a little preview on Instagram, it started with a graphite pencil and advanced to watercolor and acrylic paints in no time. You know me, I like to mix the media and create something that beautifully blends together.

I like this journal from CANSON, but the orientation is not my style. So I decided to create a new journal by simply turning this one into half and sewing the pages together to result a new journal. Now, some of the pages can be part of the new journal, and I’ll have to find a place for tgem in the loose creations fder where I keep my very few loose pages, because I either paint in a journal or directly on canvas ❀️

OK, I know you’re curious to see how this face unfolded, so here it’s the sketch :

I then added watercolor and I kinda lost myself in the process, so much so that I forgot to take photos with every step, so it resulted this:

Next day I defined her features a little bit more and thought an acrylic background would suit her best that watercolors, just because I love the consistency of acrylic paints and the way they layer one over another. This didn’t look like so at the beginning, but I kept on adding more and more until I got this:

I don’t know if this is the final result, as I like to let the page “sit” and come back after a while to add more color or lines or…whatever I feel is missing. Could be even words or phrases, who knows?!

What do you think about her!? I encourage you to draw abd paint whimsical imaginary faces and make them your own! Sometimes I draw my inspiration from photos, but most of the time I simply draw from my imagination with no particular person or face in mind.

See you soon,
