Junque Art Studio Play - Playing With Color

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.)

Fast Forward Art Play™ - Celebrate

Fast Forward Art Play™ - Celebrate

It's time for another Fast Forward Art Play™ video and it's time to CELEBRATE spring! During this play time I challenged myself to work with a color I don't normally use...purple. Now my niece loves purple, but I am just not a purple girl.

It was a bit of a challenge to work with the purple at first, but I do love how the page came out combined with a few of my favorite colors. I really LOVE the new stencil I got from Stencil Girl by Maria McGuire. I know I will be using it a lot! I also love the surprise I got when I was collaging some vintage paper on the center of the flower. I was getting ready to use one side and flipped it over to see what the other side looked like and found the word "celebrate" stamped on it. I had stamped the word at some point and the scrap piece ended up in my paper stash. I love little fun surprises like that. So I decided to name the page celebrate in honor of spring!

Last week I created this art journal page live on Periscope. It was my very first time using Periscope and broadcasting anything live! Scary! I had no plan and was nervous as I could be, but I had a great time. Thanks to all my peeps who joined in.

I have been a little missing in action as of late due to some little surgical procedures I had to have done. I wish I could say it was for fun and to remove all my wrinkles, but alas no such luck. I was getting really anxious about the procedure so the page I created live was all about trusting in God and having faith that all would go ok with my procedure last week.

All went well with my procedure and I'm still in recovery mode. I was hoping that part would go a little faster but I'm really having to be patient with the process and my body. So I decided tomorrow's live art journal session would be a all about "practicing patience". So if you would like to follow along and work along as I create live tomorrow I would love to have you join me in my studio.

Deets again: Wednesday, July 15th, 3:30pm CST on Periscope

If you can't join me live, the replay is available on Periscope for 24 hours.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. I would also love to know what you would like to see live. Leave me a comment below this post if there is something special you would like to see in upcoming broadcasts.

On of my favorite things to do is work in my art journals. I thought you might enjoy watching me work in one of my favorite vintage journals. I started without a plan and just worked freely and went with my intuition as I worked. It's all about playing and learning and making time for art.
