Here is Part 3 of my version of Shannon Green’s challenge. Enjoy! I finally received my Dylusions paints, and was able to use them in this challenge/video! 🙂

As promised, another video today! I decided to play along with Shannon Green’s “Journaling by 5’s”. It’s quite popular on Youtube, and she even has a Facebook group. The idea is to complete 20 art journal pages, using 5 sets of prompts, with a 15 minute time limit for each prompt. Confused yet? I know I was, until I watched Shannon’s video here.
Well, I’m not much of a rule follower, and I’m a slow art journaler, so this is MY VERSION of her challenge. I started out trying to give myself the time limit, but found it difficult, and not really enjoyable. So, I turned off the timer, and just started to play. Then, the happy happened!
I should add that I said in the video that I only did 10 pages, but apparently I can’t count, because I did actually do 20 lol.
Here’s my video.
On to Step 3…

So, after a few requests on Facebook, through the various creative groups I belong to, I finally did a little video of my stencil storage solution. It’s not really “finished”, but you get the idea, and a little peek at my *VERY* messy studio lol.
Here’s the link to the “J” hooks that I used to hang my stencils.
They look like this:

I decided I wanted to make an art journal spread, and record it, for future use in my art journaling videos. It’s basically a spread with my blog information on it. Just an excuse to play in my journal, really. And, I wanted to start using my pre-prepared journal spreads. I often just do backgrounds, because they are easy and mindless, basically. But I often don’t like the results, so I never end up completing it. This one started with some Golden mediums that I wanted to try. I did it so long ago, I can’t recall exactly what I did, but I know I started out with gesso on the left side page, and Golden pastel ground on the other side. I then layered ink sprays and paint, and alcohol inks. It turned into kind of a hot mess. I’m not crazy about pink, either, so the color just didn’t inspire me until today. I actually ended up liking the end result!
The zentangle-inspired dangles were inspired by Joanne Fink’s technique – more details on her blog – www.zenspirations.com
- Golden Gesso and Ground
- Dylusions ink sprays
- Doodling pens – Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, Sharpie paint pens, Montana acrylic paint marker, Sakura gel pens, Uni-ball Vision black waterproof pen
- Unknown washi tapes
- Heidi Swapp (discontinued) letter masks
- Pan Pastel in black
- Krylon Workable Fixative
- Black acrylic paint (watered down for splats)
And, here’s the video:
