Journal52 Prompts 6 & 7-Kind of #Journal52 #SaveConstantine #Stillman & Birn


I’m late! I’m late! It’s been a busy year so far, and I fell farther behind with my Journal52 prompts than I ever have before.  I’m almost caught up, so you’ll see lots of Journal52 prompts this week.  No write-ups for my process though.  Sorry. Just no time.  I’m not sure anyone would have beenContinue reading “Journal52 Prompts 6 & 7-Kind of #Journal52 #SaveConstantine #Stillman & Birn”

Mary Sue #JHerbin #Clairefontaine #Creapen


I’ve been playing around with brush pens a lot lately.  I’m not doing too bad, but as with everything practice makes perfect, and there are still times were I’m not getting the results I want. Normally I do abstract or non-objective work, but it occurred to me that I might get better results if IContinue reading “Mary Sue #JHerbin #Clairefontaine #Creapen”

Journal52 2015 Week 5 – Television #Journal52 #SaveConstantine #ArtJournal


You know how I’m always jabbering on about not planning my work?  Well, this week I did.  I also got more complex than usual. It just goes to show –you can’t trust anyone, lol! I’ve long been a fan of the Hellblazer graphic novels, and when the new show ‘Constantine’ (the title character of Hellblazer) premiered,Continue reading “Journal52 2015 Week 5 – Television #Journal52 #SaveConstantine #ArtJournal”

Journal52 2015 Week 4-Silhouettes #Journal52 #ArtJournal #Acrylics


I cheated a little bit on the prompt this week–maybe.  I looked up the definition of silhouette and Google’s first offering was ‘the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, especially in dim light.’ The definition didn’t specify that the shape had to be a solid color, so IContinue reading “Journal52 2015 Week 4-Silhouettes #Journal52 #ArtJournal #Acrylics”

Journal52 2015 Prompt 2: Just Be #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ColoredPencil


  The second prompt for Journal52 2015 was ‘Just Be’. I’ve mentioned, often, that I seldom plan my work.  However, after musing on this prompt for a bit I had the idea of someone lazing against a tree, just being. I wanted to keep my process simple, and I wanted the process to ‘just happen’Continue reading “Journal52 2015 Prompt 2: Just Be #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ColoredPencil”

Journal52 Prompt 48: Build a Snowman #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ArtJournaling


I’m getting ready for family to visit, but I managed to sneak in time for the Journal52 prompt 48.  It helps that I stuck to my guns and kept it simple. I used an assortment of Acrylic paints, and a 1 inch flat and whipped this out in about 10 minutes.  It shows it, forContinue reading “Journal52 Prompt 48: Build a Snowman #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ArtJournaling”

Journal52 Prompt – Week 42: Magic #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ArtJournaling


Well, I did what I always tell myself not to do. It had been a while since I did a page of words in my Journal52 journal.  My brain didn’t immediately pop up with ideas for the prompt ‘Magic’, and I wasn’t feeling all that creative, so Words it was. But, I hated the pageContinue reading “Journal52 Prompt – Week 42: Magic #Journal52 #ArtJournal #ArtJournaling”
