[Video] Mixed Media Art Journal Entry | Empty Nest

It's the 1st of September and I'm a video making fool!  I've put it off for so long, it feels good to put my ideas into action.  Anyway, the trees are slowly starting to shed their leaves and you can see a lot of the nests left behind.  Whenever the weather changes I feel so inspired.



A lot of the times the background will get completely covered up.  Sometimes I just have to cover the white page first and then the ideas start to flow.


I have a few fall inspired projects coming up and looking forward to sharing.  What about you?  What do you like about fall?


If you are new to my blog, subscribed to my YT channel or signed up for my newsletter I just want to thank you for spending time with me.  I hope you are inspired by this post and get to do something creative today!

[Video] Visual Journal Flip & Studio Update

Happy Friday!  I have finally started my YouTube channel again!  I had one a few years ago and I wanted a fresh start so I'm back now.



Every Tuesday you should see a new video from me.  That might change if I start a series but for now I will post here on Friday's and on YT on Tuesday's.  I already have next week's video ready to go! 

This week just flew by.  Here is a snapshot of what my desk looks like....


I'm working on paintings to submit to an art show and printables for my ETSY (coming soon).  I've started in on a new art journal and having fun with that.  I'm ready for the weekend and would like to know what you are up to so leave me a comment down below!  Don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!

Visual Journal Girls + New Items In The Shop


It's been a while since I've been in my journal or painted faces.  It felt really good to put some paint down.  These were the last two blank pages...this journal is now complete.  Hopefully my new SD card comes in soon so I can do a YouTube Journal Flip video.


I just played with lots of layers.  This is the direction I plan to go in my new journal.  My work feels so random sometimes.  I get discouraged because I guess I'm supposed to be building a consistent body of work but I end up painting whatever comes to mind.  Oh well, one thing I know for sure is that I love painting faces...it's a challenge for me every time.  

For now, I'll go where my creativity takes me.     


I've been fascinated by space lately...I had some wooden door signs in the vault so I pulled them out and started painting.  I would like to paint more signs and incorporate portraits in some how.  I think that eventually all the ideas I have in my head will come together at some point!


I have these posted in my ETSY.  Please take advantage of this coupon code APAINTEDCOUPON as it will take $3.00 off of your purchase!  The couple code will be good until the end of September.  I have a few more paintings going up next week.  Have a great weekend!
