Rae Missigman Inspiration

Here's my crazy journal spread inspired by Rae Missigman On Creative Jumpstart 2017! I loved putting all the colors together and making my own scrap paper as accents.

Mary Beth Shaw Inspiration

Continuing with Creative Jumpstart 2017, this week Mary Beth Shaw challenged us to mix collage and stenciling together -- both techniques which I love to do. I admire Mary Beth's process with stencils so was eager to try this lesson.

The layering of paper, paint and stencils was great fun! My color palette included dark blue and green gold, with lots of gesso! I don't want to give away the techniques, so head on over to Natalie's site to sign up!

Creative Jumpstart 2017

I'm starting off January 2017 with Natalie's Creative Jumpstart! This week focuses on COLOR - my favorite inspiration. Here are two quick pages inspired by wonderful color: one page of pinks and one page of blues.

Inspired by Jodi Ohl, one of my favorite painters, I created one owl and then another over the blue spread. I like painting owls with big eyes, can you tell? Since this year's theme is to mix and match: I did blend gelatos over the paint for shading. Try it yourself for fun!

Join Natalie this January for inspiration from over 20 artists!
