Art Journal Pages with Image Transfers and Doodled Flowers

 This is a page in my larger art journal.  It's about 9" x 12".  This one started out with a bunch of image transfers that are mostly covered up now.  The images were 2 postcards, one woman and a page of butterflies.  I used Gelatos, acrylic paints, gesso, gel sticks, Christy Tomlinson She Doodles, She Art Text, and News/Classified rubber stamps, Pitt pens, rub-ons, The Crafter's Workshop templates and sequin waste.

I have never really doodled flowers before, but doodling flowers was one of the lessons in the art journaling class I'm taking online from Christy Tomlinson.  This is my smaller art journal.  It's about 6" x 6". I got out the black Pitt pens and drew the flowers.  I colored in the flowers with colored Pitt pens, and Copic markers.  The yellow background is a yellow Pan Pastel.  The red border is done with a red Pan Pastel.  The final step was using a white Souffle pen.  The Souffle pens are dimensional.  I will add the journaling later.  The lesson here is that you don't have to know how to draw to draw some funky flowers.

I'm really enjoying this art journaling.  It's allowing me to try new things and just play!  There is no right or wrong way to art journal. There are a lot of online resources to get started art journaling.  Don't be afraid that you can't art journal.  You can!  Thanks for stopping by!
