Featured artist... The Documented Life


What an honor it was when I was not only asked by the 
Art to the 5th ladies to create some art jounal pages for the month of June but also that I got to have a sponsor with a generous gift of pens and inks to play with. Kuretake / Zig has come to the USA and they are hitting America hard with colorful greatness! 

For those not familiar with The Documented Life, it's an art journaling group that began on facebook a year ago and has since moved to a webpage as Art to the 5th. We - a very large group of art journalers, get a new art prompt each week and have a week to get creative with it. I am a bit behind this year... but not to worry because some days I sit and make several pages at a time and always get caught up. I highly reccomend that if you enjoy journaling and want to challenge yourself that you log on to their page and sign up. It's free and you can start at any time. Give it a try!

 The theme for the month of June is 
TRAVEL JOURNALING
The challenge for this week - June 13th- June 20th is
RECORDING MEMORIES
and the prompt is 
TAKE THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED.


I felt like I just won the lotto when Ana from Kuretake called and asked if I would be interested in doing this. She knows how addicted to this craft I am and also how passionate I am about Kuretake. I wrote a little book several years back for them when they were with EK Success called THE ABC'S OF CREATIVE LETTERING and have been a huge cheerleader of their products ever since. But now that they are based in the USA and honestly, in my backyard... they are bringing so much more to the mixed media world. Get ready to have you socks knocked off... because their Gansi Tambi watercolors and the Gold Mica ink kinda sent me into a tailspin. I kinda went a little overboard with these two items.... oh, well... you will see... read on!



Here's a little pic of my loot. Some of these goodies will be shared with a lucky blog winner ( leave me a comment... you will see at the end of the post ).... from H2o brushes, clean color watercolor markers, to my new favorite Mangaka pens and vellum writers , to the Wink of Stella and then those lovely inks and the Gansi Tambi watercolors... Oh my! I need an intervention!
  
Sumi brush calligraphers use these creamy and rich watercolors in asia... 
here, well I am just playing around and I love them!


And then there is that lovely Gold Mica Ink... This became the basis for my Little Miss Sunshine trailer. If you haven't been following along all week, I highly advise that you look back for the downloadable free template so you can create your own trailer. I just started painting these stripes and knew something would come to me to use them for... and it did. Look at that metallic sheen to that ink. Oh my my.....

 Here is the page that Little Miss Sunshine became a part of. Complete with White Ink 30 dots and mica flake stars... I kinda love this one... not gonna lie!

 I used a little scrap of chinille to create the moon and then went to the sewing machine to secure it down... It came out really fluffy and fun.


 I have been looking for a good black pen to write over whatever I might be using and I think I found 2 of them from Kuretake.... first I picked up the Vellum writer and loved it and moved on to the MANGAKA pens ( from .003 to .05 )... these both well exceeded my wildest dreams. They drew over that Gold Mica Ink and watercolor and I painted with that White Ink 30... which I was blown away by. Anyway... give them a try. They are lovely!


By the way... the propane tank was done using the POSTEMAN pen... another great suggestion for something that writes on anything including plastic. It comes in several point sizes and extra fine is my choice. I own the white, gold and silver but it comes in lots of colors


So, I think I said before that I was generously given lots of differnt things to play with but I did get a bit obsessed with the Gansi Tambi watercolors. I just kept painting paper after paper and creating my own watercolor papers. So, what do you do when life gives you watercolor paper? Cut it up!!! And that I did. And made some trees here...


Used a map, a sewing machine, the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the moon, more Gansi Tambi watercolor for my journaling stripes and I think that's the vellum pen for the wording.




So much fun using some Strathmore watercolor paper to just paint and paint. I tried making a map ( above ) but ended up hating it so I cut it up to create stars, circles, trees and other goodies.


My favorite piece I created is below, using the Gansi Tambi watercolor. I had a piece of "under paper" that I kept wiping my brush off on. I always wipe my brush off onto a nice piece of paper and take into account the strokes that I make so that I can use it again. This piece just kind of evolved.  I sprinkled some salt on it when it was wet and then splashed some of the Gold Mica Ink into it... loved it!

I hope that you enjoyed these pages and my techniques. Please follow me here on my blog for more fun and creative ideas, follow me on facebook at

I love to always stop by and see what cuteness you are up to.

I love your little caravan. I have just come back from a camping holiday and there were times when I wished I had a van instead of a tent. The gold ink looks luscious. I hope I can get it in Australia!

Lorna S. said...

I really enjoyed traveling along with your art journaling. You seem to be having fun with all your supplies and the ideas just rolled from the ink and paint onto the page. I just discovered the pan watercolors you were using and spent last night playing with my new set- great minds! I haven't tried the pen for Vellum, but also just received my order of Zig Clean Color brush pens. Thank you for sharing!

Clausen said...

Thankyou for sharing your beautiful art. I Think I Will try the products you refere

sewswimbike said...

Wow! Love your cuteness. I am a sewer who has recently started the documented life project but found it hard to add some of my sewing ideas and ideas, not to mention fabric. So, I was very inspired by your work with a lot of both. You gave me the courage to take apart my recommended journal and free my pages for my sewing machine. I also live in a micro town in northern MI, so I will be looking forward to purchasing some of your recommendations on line. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lisa Evola said...

So beautiful! I just love the fun direction that you take your art and journals! I am new to the art journaling but have been a watercolor artist for many years....would love to give the watercolor markers a try! Very cool flowey color. Question: is the vellum pen water resistant? I've been using gel pens but they smear if I put anything over them...leading to frustration of course! Sighs...I know it will come. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences!!

APG Jamie said...

Susan Norvell said...

You are very talented. I enjoyed your pages and your process. Wish I could draw as well as you do. It is my one real downfall when it comes to art journaling. Everyone says "anyone can do it". Well I guess I'm just not everyone. Thanks for sharing.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

This is my first year doing the DLP and I love it. It's also been great meeting all these new artists that the project is featuring. Your work is so pretty and inspiring. I love all the fabulous ink pens. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Very interested in your techniques. Have been following but still haven't tried it yet, still working on overcoming the 'fear of imperfection'

You have such a creative mind and wonderful talent. Very inspiring!

Jazzy JEC said...

Good tips and tricks ..... thanks so much. I like how you tried out all the products and that you used a piece of paper to dab off the paint. Such a good way to make use of all the product. I am going to start doing that too.

Scatterjoy! said...

Such an inspiring post! You rocked as this weeks DLP Featured Artist! Can't wait to get my hands on some of those supplies! You always speak so passionately about the supplies you try and love...makes me RUN right out to scoop them up.

Eileen Bellomo said...

Thanks for sharing your process. And for enlightening me about all those great products. I have (and love) the Wink of Stella pens, but had no idea about the others. I think some new pens and watercolors are in my future!

Vanessa Johanning said...

Those watercolors are wonderful!! Swoon!!

I love your post! The finished page is adorable, and it is so obvious you had fun along the way. New art supply testing is the best!

Karen said...

I just love your finished page and all of the great tips for creating it. I have a "thing" about little travel trailers, and want one for my art studio. IWe call them glampers, or glammed up vintage trailers. I also have the Kuretake watercolors and love them! They are so much fun! Thanks for inspiring us, and introducing some new products!

cmcscraps said...

What a fun post. Love your camper

Ruth Park said...

I loved your post! I know I'm late, June 21, but it's been a busy week with me.
Anyway, your little camper and watercolor trees are sooo fun!
Reminded me of traveling with my parents many years ago.
We didn't have a camper but traveling in an old 1950's car back seat with my sisters, we made it a little room for the trip.
Stopped along the way at small roadside parks with cement tables and chairs for vacationers to have their picnics.
Happy memories in those times;-)
I'm going to start my page today! Hope to recreate that memory!
Thanks for your wonderful post that inspired me to think back on those days ;-)
I'll try to post a picture when I finish.
I really enjoy the weekly prompts, but don't always get to them as quickly as I'd like.
