Mixed Media Art Journal Page (+Video): That Weird Lip Twitch Thing

Hey There Lovelies

I'm back, after a short break, with another colourful art journal page and video. As much as I like to aim for making at least one page a week, sometimes life throws a curveball and it doesn't happen. 

Thankfully, all is back on track now and I was able to sit at my desk, switch the camera on and pootle away creating a new page.

And it all began with a doodle monster sketch that I scanned into my computer and redrew as vector art. I wanted a softer, rounded character, simply designed so that I could add my own embellishments and decoration once printed out. Oh yes, and it had to be easy to cut out. No fussy cutting!

The background too, I wanted to simplify. Not too many visual layers. Just enough to keep it interesting. I'm always playing around to see how far I can go in keeping my mixed media as minimal as I can whilst also maintaining visual interest and most importantly the element of play. 

And if you want to see how I went about it, grab a cuppa, sit back for a few minutes  and watch the video below. 

Okay, I know I ramble on in them. I'm still learning haha. I hope you enjoyed watching.

I'm off to go scribble some more creature designs to use in future pages. And I may grab my own cup of tea and watch some videos by my favourite mixed media artists too

Until next time

Love & Hugs
