It has been awhile…junk journaling can become all encompassing. A good thing?
So…what to do…how about trying to merge all of these worlds?
If I relax with some WC florals, and add pen doodling that would do it. And, if I scan my creation, I can use in in JJs – or, as a digi on Etsy.
So, here are the three layers. If you would like to see them, find them on YT under CarolMartineArt… and find them on my Watercolor Wonder playlist.
Thought I’d share a glance at my ephemera making over the last few months.
After hand to hand combat learning the process, I have some groups of digitals to share in my Etsy shop. Should be adding this weekend, or early next week.Smiles,Carol
Friday happy dance, I can now see the cover of my Pick-Up JJ. My muse is back from vacation, so I have some help, finally. It has been an arid few weeks waiting for muse-girl’s input. I can see the start…Yea!!!!I will be sharing as always on my YT channel.Smiles,Carol
I have finally discovered scanning…and the process for turning scanned pieces into digis for my Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/carolmartineart). The process of water marking almost brought me to my knees – solved the many steps by writing them down a la Watermarking for Idiots. Yea! It works…another thing to grab if the house is on fire.
I picked my background from my stash, gathered some papers, acrylic paints, stencils, and stamps…and let the good times roll.

This is the photo that made the scanner.
Since I have sooo much to catch up, I have decided to start with my latest arting projects and work backwards.
Hope you will understand that life and good intentions sometimes collide.
I recently bought this Naked Junk Journal from Collective Chickadee on Etsy. They were introduced by Gayle Agostinelli on You Tube. It is very well made.
My goal is to make it my own. To that end, you will find my process on this You Tube video:

The second installment (2) will be on YT tomor
row morning, 6/18/2019.
If ever I worried about making a journal by commission, Ruth’s beautiful thank you letter made it all so worthwhile. And, my thank you journal for her grand daughter Sophie was a hit. I walked on air for awhile.
This is the third year of my sharing page turns of journals done during the year. If you would like to see them, you will find them under the 2018 – Art This Year playlist on my YT channel. http://www.youtube.com/c/carolmartineart
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season,
Sooo much fun doing something sooo new to me. But, its on the table in the family room, and have begun to journal in it….Yea..
Have mailed the journal to my friend Louise. Fingers crossed that it arrives safely and she likes it.
