Junque Art Studio Play – Playing With Color

It’s time for another Junque Art Studio Play™ video! (Formerly Fast Forward Art Play™) It’s really all about playing, having fun, and discovering new things. I try to make time several times a week to play and explore in my art journal. To get in the “play” state of mind I find it helps when I limit my time to 30 minutes or less. When my time is limited I tend to not over think things and just let things happen. (Most of the time anyway.)

I have been trying to use different color combinations lately and in this Studio Play time I pushed myself to use colors I don’t normally use. It’s good to have those comfortable tools in your art, but it’s also great to explore new things. Your art journal is the perfect place to explore.

I hope you enjoy the video and I hope it inspires you to try some new colors and just make some time to play! Remember the page was created in under 30 minutes and I have fast forwarded the video times 2 so it’s something you can watch quick.

When I first started I wasn’t really liking where it was going. But I kept working quickly and making moves with color and marks. In the end I really liked how it turned out. I think I have found a new go to color combo to add to my tool box.

Below are most of the supplies I used in today’s Studio Play Video. This list is to help you locate the products that I used. Please feel free to substitute products that you already have but it’s always fun to shop for new art supplies. If you have any questions about supplies please send me a note in the comments below.

P.S. I used a hand carved stamp in the video so there is no link for the stamp.

It doesn’t take a lot of time to create in your art journal. It’s all about playing and having fun. So I would love for you to challenge yourself to carve out 30 minutes a week to just play!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments.

Happy Playing and Creating,

    1. Carole thanks so much for stopping by and I’m so glad you liked the video! I’ll be doing more soon. 🙂

  1. Love this! I love your art so much Cindy! And this was really inspiring to just watch you set the timer and go. I always feel like I don’t have enough time to just play, I have to be doing something productive for the shop/blog etc. and I think I really need to do this!

    I downloaded the color palette too! You know what would be really fun, is if you had one of those every week (or month?) and made it small like index card size that we could put on a ring and collect for times we need inspiration! ♥♥♥
