Mixed Media Nature Dreaming by Wendy Walsh

I must confess I am a little bit of a memory keeper. As I mentioned in my last dt blog post, our family took a holiday to beautiful Cairns in Queensland, Australia. One of my fondest memories was entering into the rainforest and discovering one of Cairns many waterfalls. This waterfall was particularly good, coz you could swim in the cool fresh water in a lagoon type area with large rounded boulders. I sat there breathing it all in, watching my children laugh and swim…it was beautiful.

For this project, I present to you a journal entry on a page that I can place in my home-made journal that we made at the very start of my blog posts with the Lulu Art design team. This is my last blog entry for the team and I am very grateful for the opportunity. For those that enjoy all the blog posts please keep on creating and enjoying time with art. Thanks also to the rest of the lovely team.

Under the Sea by Wendy Walsh

IMG_4411Hi Everyone,

My family and I have just returned home from holidaying in Cairns, Australia. A lengthy visit to the Great Barrier Reef involving plenty of snorkelling was a magical experience all my family will remember forever.

Inspired by this experience came the ideas for this art piece/video.

Using inks, water and seeing images in abstract watery marks is where it starts. Creating images and finishing them off with mixed media is where it finishes. The process is so much fun as it allowed me to immerse myself in my wondrous memories of the Barrier Reef and all its glory.

Enjoy this video and thank you for watching it.

May the awe of nature fill your heart and soul today and everyday.

The following photos provide you with insight into the inky journey.

IMG_4411BRRRRR,

It’s Winter, it’s cold and it’s PERFECT weather to stay indoors, get out your paints, stencils and brushes and CREATE! That’s what I do and today I am presenting a video of me doing just that! I found some gorgeous music, grabbed a cup of tea and zoned out doing my favourite thing….ART and playing with my MIXED MEDIA stash.

Please join me in the act of creating art that you ease into and love.

A few sneak peeks you say?   Well here are some pics:

  

Oh and here is the video:

Here are the materials used:

May it inspire your desire to create.

Autumn Collage and Stencil by Wendy Walsh

IMG_4411Happy Autumn to you all ..

Here in Melbourne we are having the most amazing Autumn. The temperature here is unusually mild and the colour of the leaves on so many trees are glorious! It has inspired me to create the following project. I have used a basic combination of collage, a stencil (Jane Davenport) and Transfer Artist Paper and embellished away with acrylic, pencils and inks…..Happy…..happy…..Autumn days.

I hope this finds you enjoying the change of season and your art and that the following video provides lots of juicy inspiration.

Here’s a few snapshots before you watch the video:

Mixed Media Art Journal by Wendy Walsh

IMG_4411A BIG HELLO (smiling and waving with my paint covered hand) FROM ME TO YOU….

I’m Wendy Walsh from Wendy Lee Design.  I am truly honoured and grateful to be part of this fun and creative Lulu art design team. Today I am bringing to you, “How to make a mixed media Art Journal.” This journal is quick and simple to make, FUN and you can decorate it simply or elaborately, depending on your taste.

For me, an Art Journal is a sacred space to reflect, create and celebrate life as you know it. Journal pages have no right or wrong, good or bad, just freedom to explore, create and play.

Please join me in making this Art journal and it is my hope that this blog post inspires creativity and JOY.

On the front cover of my Art Journal I painted from a photo of my two aunties when they were little girls. The photo itself is so precious to me and painting it evoked such fond memories.

It’s all here in the video:

Supplies Used:
Tips:
  1. Make sure you glue all tissue paper and scrapbook paper down first. When dry, mix together (50%) diluted glue and water and seal the front of the papers.
  2. I measured and marked an inch in on both boards as a guide to glue my fabric  for the binding of the journal. I glued the fabric 1 cm short of the full inch (sorry about the change in metric), so I could add the wash tape to it later.Once fabric is glued into place, cover and seal the fabric with the diluted  glue as well. It will dry stiff, so make sure it dries flat.
I organise an Art on Envelope swap from my Facebook page every few months. I thought this journal could also work as a keepsake journal-a place to store my beautiful art envelopes that I have received.

Please visit the Lulu Art store for all your crafty needs.
