Mood Board Monday #1

My bestie Rebecca and I dreamed up a new project that we can’t wait to share with you. It’s called Mood Board Monday! Basically, each week, we create or find a mood board and allow it to inspire an art journal page.  

Here’s where we started:

And here’s the finished page. Keep scrolling to see how I made it and the details I love. Don’t forget to drop by next Monday to see what we’ve created!

art journal #28 flip video!

I made this journal at the beginning of 2016 out of a pad of Canson watercolor paper I grabbed on sale at Michaels.  I've worked in several sketchbooks since then, but this is my main art journal - the safe space where I can just let go and spread around paint. Play with materials. Experiment with new ideas and ways to use supplies I love. I don't work like this in any other book (I usually split up sketchbooks based on materials I want to use) and feel I can throw anything I want onto these pages and will end up with something I like. 

I've taken so many process pics over the past few months, I don't even know where to begin! So, can you leave me a comment about what you'd like to see? Process pics? Thoughts behind choices? More essays? I get so intimidated when I haven't spoken with you guys for so long....like there's just SO MUCH I have to share. So....give a girl some suggestions, eh?
