21 secrets {roben-marie} inspiration

listened to 21 secrets spreecast on wednesday- our teacher was Roben-Marie. i was so excited- i knew it would be good! and she did not fail....she showed many products that she has available for mixed media like her own line of "washi" tape and her ArtPops, which is a line of postcards; and shared some of her favorite products she likes to use in her art work.

i have to say i have tried many pencils along this journey, and my top two favorite pencils are:

  1. stabilo 
  2. sketch n wash pencil
i found some time last night to play for a bit and use this fabulous inspiration to create something in my own art journal. here is a peek at mine....

Roben's theme was a note back to her 21 year old self- what would you have shared with yourself? i am going to add my thoughts to my pages, but, here are my pages prejournaling. 

i did gesso my pages to start with as this journal was not really made for painting so that the paper would hold up a little better. the top red/ pink is a print off of my gelli plate. i did use spray ink to add the blue in the middle and the bottom layer of green and then followed up with acrylic paints, some stamping, my stabilo pencil, and alcohol ink.

love the colors and the happy mess i created to tell 21 year old self some very important messages.....
