Poor neglected blog... This is what happens when I have deadlines, and also pretty art supplies that call my name and tempt me to step away from the computer... The best way to know what I'm up to is to follow my YouTube channel, where I normally post process videos and tutorials at least twice a week. And lately there's a lot of art journaling on there!
Art journaling eye candy...
These colors make me so very happy...
I have lots of fun things coming, National Scrapbooking Day is just around the corner, so I will have extra projects for that day, on top of my usual videos and blog posts for my design teams. I'm also working on new classes, so lots to look forward to!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for fun things!
These are not lightfast, but as someone who mostly journals in her art journal, it's not an issue at all. These are insanely vibrant, but with a little experience, they can be diluted to lighter shades, or mixed to create new colors, bright and neutral.
These are the colors in Set A, and there are also a brown and black in the set that are not shown. I have to emphasize, the colors are not as they are in reality. The pinks are rather close, but even with some photoshop editing, I couldn't get the turquoise ones to show properly, so please take that under consideration.
Here's an art journal spread I started using these-
These are so easy to mix, here's a color wheel I created from just 3 colors-
I show you how these look and talk about the pros and cons in the video-
I've been art journaling a storm in my studio these past couple of weeks. I don't know if it's the supplies or me, or both of us, but I've been having so much fun! My head is buzzing with ideas for new classes, I wish I could paint all day long... So here's the latest spread I created in my wonderful Jane Davenport journal-
I recently decided to set up a gouache palette, so I filmed it for you!
I love bright colors, and wanted to have white also so I could mix my own pastel shades. I chose a mixture of Shinhan paints (for their vibrancy and great value), Winsor & Newton gouache (gorgeous vibrant pinks and purples) and a few opaque Shinhan watercolors (not shown in the photo. I added Lavender, Lilac and Jaune Brill #2).
Here are pictures of my swatches. It's hard to get the colors to match on screen to real life, so be mindful that it is not accurate.
