I'm a Featured Artist for 2016 DLP - Enjoy An Art Journaling Video

Hello! If you’re joining me from Art to the 5th’s 2016 DLP website or their weekly unPlanner blog, welcome :). 

 It's an honor to be a Documented Life Project Featured Artist! 
My absolute vocation or creative calling has always been watercolor. Currently, I am working on something tremendous—a dream-come-true art project that will allow me to share my watercolor skills in a bigger way. Stay tuned...


This week’s challenge is: “Ask someone else to draw or make marks on your art piece”. I love doing collaborative art with my 4-year-old. And since he’s a space-nut, this art journal page is dedicated to him. 


 Some art materials you'll need are: 
  1. Your unPlanner (or whatever sketchbook system of your choice). Currently, I'm using this travel size watercolor journal. 
  2. Any basic watercolor set with standard colors. I use blue, green, orange, & white gouache.
  3. Concentrated Water Colors in convenient dropper bottles. [Note: although brilliant, these pigments are actually dyes and will fade over time].
  4. Black waterproof india ink. This one dries super duper matte, which is great for journal writing on top of.


Enjoy my tutorial video below. As always, big hugs!

So happy to have you as a guest for our unDLP this year. I have your color classes and enjoyed them so much. Your tiny tag presentation today is another winner! I have a 6 yo granddaughter that would love to illustrate our solar system. She is so unhappy that she has never seen a shooting star and we watch all the time but it hasn't happened yet. This would make a perfect journaling spot for her big wish. Thanks for your inspiration and beautiful page.
