Tiddly Inks Art Journal Challenge and a Video

Shew, I made it with 3 days to spare. Tiddly Inks has had a Art Journal challenge for the last two weeks and I've been wanting to get something entered but just haven't had time. Today I finally played and had a ball!! I've been wanting to ink up Owlette (and it comes with that awesome tree!!) so I let that dictate what my journal page theme was going to be. I think owl and I automatically think wise, so here's what I came up with:
Here's the close ups:




And here's a super close up of one of my favorite little bits:
Edit added 9.25**
I finally got my video edited and uploaded.  For any of you interested in watching the whole process in a speed format click here.


All of the same pics at the end of the video are also posted here for those that don't have time to watch.  Sorry also that I did not repost links and such to all of the products used that are in the info box on youtube. Here's those:

Great tutorial. Thanks so much for sharing and showing us your wonderful journal pages.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Two wonderful pages, love the background colors and the images. Thanks for sharing the video.

Anniebee said...

Another brilliant page, Dana! It's so cool watching you during your creative process and even though I have watched several of your videos, I just realized in watching this one that you lay down your darker colors first and work toward the lighter when you're working with Copcis. I do just the opposite. Anyway, I love the images (especially that twisty tree!) and as always, your coloring is perfect. Enjoyed all the technique lessons too!

Sally Cicada Designs said...

Absolutely fantastic!! So fun to watch!! So many cool techniques!! Your colouring is amazing too!! TFS--you inspire me!!
Hugs,
Sarah ☺

Christy/Tiddly Inks said...

WOW!!! Dana! This is simply stunning and the saying with it is perfect! :)

Kt_Dragonfly said...

Your video is so inspiring! Loved watching you put the pages together, awesome!
Would love to know what the 'crayons' you were using to do the background and everything? I tend to use acrylic paint which seems to over power everything :D
