Art Journaling at the Speed of Life

Art Journaling at the Speed of Life

I just wanted to share some art journaling goodness with you all:-) I was thrilled to get my contributor copy of Art Journaling magazine and find me work on the cove! It totally caught me by surprise. As most of you know, I love art journaling and it’s my go to vehicle to teach workshops. They are such a valuable tool for any artist.

Here’s the full page spread. I love this color palette of Nightfall, Celedon, and Rain from my line of paints with Derivan Matisse. The stencils used here are my designs with Stencil Girl Products.

I hope you are finding time to explore your own journals~

Acrylic Artist Inks are acrylic based inks that come in intense, heavily pigmented colors for use in many applicators – perfect for calligraphy, pen & wash, technical drawing, airbrushing, dripping, and washes. These inks work well for filling spray bottles and in refillable marker type tools. (Montana brand works great!)

These inks are washable in water while wet, making cleanup quick and easy. Brushes, pens and airbrushes clean easily in water. They come in a tip resistant bottle with a dropper tip to make filling tools and direct application easy. They need to be shaken before use and they have a stainless steel ball in the bottle to help with mixing. Acrylic Artist Inks are lightfast, permanent and are available in 12 signature Pam Carriker Palette colors along with black and white.

Pam Carriker’s Mixed Media Adhesive

A quality adhesive is vital to Mixed Media Artists, and Pam Carriker’s Signature Mixed Media Adhesive (MMA) will help you achieve results you can’t with traditional collage glues.  Non-sticky and extremely matte in both feel and appearance, MMA makes it possible to use any other media over it with no tell-tale line where the adhesive ends. MMA is so matte that even delicate watercolor applications, pencil sketches, and fine art pens can be used right over the top of it. Worries about paper wrinkles or bubbles disappear as MMA handles even tissue paper with ease and keeps Art Journal pages from sticking together. Try MMA today and feel the difference!

With Derivan Liquid Pencil you can get graphite in your art without apencil in your hand! Pam Carriker’s signature line of Liquid Pencil Sketching Ink is nothing less than an entirely new medium—a graphite ink that’s easy to use in myriad mixed media techniques. It comes in a handy squeeze bottle with a special tip usable for direct application or to refill regular ink tools. Available in both Permanent and Rewettable formulas for a wide range of techniques, Sketching Ink can be used to ink rubber stamps, as a dip pen ink, or as paint. The Rewettable formula can be manipulated using traditional drawing tools like erasers, blending stumps, or even wet brushes, and the Permanent formula can even be burnished to a lovely sheen. Put those boring pencils away and discover a whole new way to get the look of graphite in your art with Pam Carriker’s Sketching Ink!
