My Daily Moleskine 2017. November Pages.

Giant bubble wrap is a brilliant tool to use with the Gelli plate! I am putting far too many leaves into the planner!  The opposite page is a ‘ghost’ signature which is a word or name which is treated like an ink blot to make a shape or creature. I went on a creative field trip and used the train and museum tickets for this page with a gingko leaf added. Cut out from the newspaper and some colour added! Face painting with sumi brush and ink. Blind contour drawing and some brush script. Some birthday wrap and labels along with a rose petal. Gelli plate print of a fern leaf and gingko leaves. My colleagues at the library bought me a birthday treat! A ‘mini masterpiece’ inspired by the Fluid Art class along with some doodles. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year?  I have loved filling up this planner and it is so satisfying to see it nearly full. Happy Thursday x Advertisements

My Daily Moleskine 2017, October Pages.

Some pages from my Moleskine daily planner which I am using to make some art in every day this year.  I am so pleased I have been completing it everyday and I now have a nice big fat book! In October I painted, gelli plated, stuck down old photos, stuck down crisp packets, spray painted and sketched things we found in the woods. I can’t wait to finish this book and get started on my new Alice in Wonderland Moleskine in 2018. Happy Thursday x

Daily Moleskine 2017. September Pages.

Another month flies by and here we are in October.  The weather is just starting to cool off and Autumn temps are on the horizon here in the mid west.  I completed my September pages in my daily Moleskine planner and the book is looking very full! I am really enjoying how these small art pages reflect what I am doing or learning and what is influencing me at the time. I love to see the variety of colours I use and what techniques I go back to time and time again.     This past month I have used blind contour drawings, gelli plate prints directly into my Moleskine, a list of new paint colours, vintage National Geographic pictures, inky moons and dried flowers and petals. Lots to do and lots to see, I am looking forward to what October will bring to my ‘arted’ days! Happy Wednesday x
