Artsy Fartsy

Lately I have been rediscovering my love of using art techniques on my scrapbook pages. For the last few months I have been sucked into the never ending world of yummy scrapbook embellishments (of which I want ALL but that's another story!), but thanks to the February/March edition of Scrapbook Answers Magazine I started playing with paint and ink again.

So it's perfect that the theme for this week's Studio Friday is your favourite art supplies.




This is a layout I did yesterday using the beeswax batik technique that was described in the mag. I used my pens to doodle the title, it's the first time I've tried doing a title like this and I quite like how it looks.


I bought a watercolour notepad a couple weeks ago so that I can start an art journal and freely experiment without fear. I think I will finally get started on it this weekend! Kelly Angard of Creative Collage has been leading a Create without Fear challenge which will be the perfect jumping off spot!

I so agree gesso is the bomb! I love all your colorful pens as well.
And the page is lovely with how you did the watercolors, oh and that lavender and the adorable pictures!

I share your love of creating arty scrap pages with "real artist" materials. I need to get some of those pens. It must be great living in Lyon. I visited there many years aga and think it has a nice energy. tc cassandra

Awesome layout and yummy pens. I have a pad of watercolor paper and I must really break it out and try some more artsy stuff.
