Art in a journal

After my creative session on the 2. of January I have continued working on different journal pages.
The session was a kind of boost of ideas.

Here come some of the pages I have been working on, mostly today.

The above page (unfinished) is inspired from the session, both colours and technique have been used the other day.

Nr. 2is a mixed media painting starting with pastels in blue and brown, painting over with yellow acrylic. I used a feather to draw fine lines with writing ink, added more pastel and acrylic, detailing spots with a pencil and an oil pastel pen. An interesting process (not finished)

Another example of mixed media with the same material as above (unfinished).

Drawn with a feather and watered down acrylic, something I've never tried before. Actually a great discovery which I would like to use more often. It makes truly fine lines and I can choose any colour I want!

Owl painting in progress, still a lot of work to be done here!

Had a happy PAINT PARTY FRIDAY :-)
Wish the same to you at:


  1. You are getting some interesting work by experimenting! Looks like you're having fun and good outcomes.

  2. Its so much fun to dabble in art and let it take you on an adventure. Your owl is looking like a brilliant start. Can't wait to see the finished piece. Happy PPF

  3. experimenting is such fun and look forward to seeing your owl completed. Happy PPF, Annette x

  4. Feathers? You have given me a new idea to try. Love that owl, I think he is going to be fantastic, and that top image looks like the beginnings of a Spanish dancer.

    1. Yes, give it a try! I bought some feathers for decoration and cut a tip with a sharp knife. Originally we used the feathers for writing old style at a "Harry Potter" - school project.
      Besides I know somebody fond of dancing flamenco, she might fit into my page ;-)

  5. And about the owl - she has evolved into Rugana and has become part of a story :-)


Your comments make me happy!
