Page Du Jour #29

I’m still working on today’s page, sometimes the words don’t come to me right off, so I’ll leave this out as I do other work and when the right ones come to mind I’ll add them in.

Here are some of the past few days pages that I finished while traveling. It really helps to prep several pages ahead and then you can travel with just a nice assortment of pens and have fun adding text and details while on the go!

I’m thinking of having the pages from this month made into a little book

By working on these faces every day, I’ve gotten pretty quick at my little draw/paint method for creating them which is key for journaling. I only use two colors of paint and my dauber bottles to paint them. A sketch can be turned into a ‘painting’ in about 5-10 minutes. This technique is part of what I’ll be teaching at Art and Soul.

I love looking through this journal and feeling motivated by the words on the pages. Using words that are meaningful to you is also key in journaling!

  1. When are you starting the Art and Soul Class? I would also like to know if you have a tutorial on one of the collages I saw on your site a week or two ago with the woman and a butterfly. I know that could be any of your pieces, but it was a wonderful collage of work and I would love to take a class if you offer it on how you did that. I cannot find that picture on your site otherwise I would give you the name. Thanks for sharing the beautiful work you do. Cindy

    • Hi Cindy,
      Art and Soul is in Hampton VA April 28-May 2
      I’ll be teaching the collage you saw there, it’s called ‘Archimbolo Style Self Portraits’
      I’m also teaching a version of it in my online workshop Journal 365. You can find info for that on my Teaching Page:-)

  2. What an incredibly productive month this has been for you and what a gorgeous result!

    I have really enjoyed watching your ladies appear every day. Beautiful!!

  3. Hi Pam, I have been following your journey with you since day 1 – you have been very prolific! and you can see how the quality of your work is changing over time. I love the idea of simplifying painting – my best work comes when it just seems to emerge from me naturally with no fuss and no muss. I am now talking to my girlfriend about attendign art and soul – wouldn’t it be great to meet you there!!

  4. Hi Pam,
    I’m curious what 2 colors of paint you are using…it is amazing to me that you are only using 2, as the drawings/paintings appear to have much more…also what type of pens are you using for drawing? I must say, you are inspiring me to create daily…I’m hoping to join you at Art and Soul, work permitting time off.

    • Only two colors for the portrait (faces) more for the rest of the page:-) I use an assortment of pens, but primarily Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens in Shades of Grey, and black, and a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen.

    Yes, please have them made into a book! Like was said above, thank you for sharing these with us. Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration! It makes me want to go work in my journal right now. The laundry can wait.

  6. Pam – these have been so fun to watch develop – and see something pretty and new each day! I’d definitely go for the little book of them – the richness of the colors that you’ve used and the various attitudes – just great inspiration – and delightful to look at each day! Thanks so much for sharing with us.
