So lovely to be back here at Lulu Art for 2019… !!
Back into my journal again… and you know I love to splash the paint around in there!
So… considering that I will be working closely with the “Art by Marlene” brand this year and Lulu Art stocks such a wide range of her lovely products, I thought I would grab one of her stencils, and a couple of Studio Light stamps in her range and see where we end up.
Hello, it’s Robyn joining you today to share a mixed media art journal page. Are you following along with the Documented Life prompts shared by the Art to the 5th Academy artists? I played along sporadically last year and decided that this year I’d do it properly and try to complete each of the prompts – so far so good. This year the idea is to use one of the large Dylusions journals for each prompt and I’m finding it a great journal to create in! I love the flexible, catch all cover so I know that I’m not going to break the bindings if my journal gets a little large.
A recent challenge was to create a page using under papers and the journaling prompt was ‘what lies beneath?’. My under papers tend to get really muddy so I decided to use some baby wipes instead. Baby wipes make perfect additions to your art journals, they are thin and can be cut with scissors or dies to create all types of shapes and they take colour beautifully! I don’t tend to keep them on a regular basis but for this project they were perfect.
Check out my YouTube video to learn how I created this page:

Hello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing an art journal page. As mixed media artists we tend to try lots of different styles of pages, trying to find our style, favourite colours and images that speak to us. Lately I have been doing some research into abstract styles and came across the work of Piet Mondrian, a Dutch pioneer of abstract art. If you are an Aussie of a certain age or a fan of rock band Silverchair, you will already be familiar with Piet’s style as it inspired the cover of the album Young Modern. Piet’s work features strong primary colours and linear lines.
My page features stamps by Dina Wakley and the quote ‘kindle your spark of madness’. In the words of Robin Williams – ‘You’re only given a spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.’

There was lot of sewing going on in my house lately. So I got inspired by it. My mumma does it, 🙂 I just watch, admire the colours and touch and feel fabrics, laces, buttons. And I always wonder how it would look if I paint over that pattern or this one? How paint will behave itself on it? What texture I will end up with? What else I can throw on it?
So I decided to give it a go! I made a journal ( notebook, book) cover. You can put on one journal and when you are done with it, you can transfer it on another. Hope you like it.
