    Ready for week three~
    We are going to continue with Video inspiration and this week we are putting our collages onto a smaller piece of paper. I used a Pocket Card size but you are free to go smaller or a little bit bigger, but to keep with the 'theme' of this challenge don't go bigger than 5x7.

    Once your have your collage done on your piece of paper you can added it to your project or just upload your small collage project on its own if that is what you would like. This practice is to have fun working on a smaller space.

    Here is the Video on
    YouTube


    And my project

    "You may create any style of layout (ie. clean and simple, artsy, pocket style etc.) you wish, with or without a photo. Create any size page you wish. This is for everyone, so have fun and see where the inspiration takes you.

    Please post your layout to the Art Journaling Gallery HERE prior to September 30th, 2020 EST and then post it in this thread by copying the code (at the right of your gallery image) from the box under "Share BB Code".

    We will draw a winner at the beginning of next month for a coupon!! You can use any products in The Lilypad store or retired products from current Lilypad designers, (just make sure you follow our gallery guidelines)."​

    oh I'm having lots of fun with this. I was inspired by all her mark making to try out various water colour, pencil and marker brushes that came with my recently new software. I'm likely to do more than one page ...

    Directions for this week suggested we work in a smaller size. Since I typically created ATC's (size - 3.5x2.5) for these challenges, I decided to take the "smaller" challenge and create my entry for this week in postage stamp size. Unfortunately, you can't see the title too clearly, but it's in the lower left quarter of the stamp.

    I was inspired by the mark making in the video to try doodling in the recently new to me Affinity Designer software.

    I played with the watercolour brush to doodle some flowers and paint on my small piece of paper, and the pencil tool for some smaller mark making.

    I had so much fun doing this, that I made a second page. I thought of the fab envelopes that Kim has in SOSN today - they are super cool for mark making on! I played with the pen and pencil brushes to make doodles patterns on top of the envelope printed pattern, then added some bigger marks with the watercolour brush.

    I'm having so much fun doing these video aj challenges. I first did this layout where I altered the leaf journal card by blending the painted paper and using the painted leaves, word art, string, scatters. But then I used it on the free template for this month so thought I'd better use it for the template challenge. I love it though, so thought I'd show it here too.

    So then I got to play some more and I decided to use some of today's SOSN 9.16.20 products for this one. The bg paper was already painted and layered so I just played with paints and doodles on the ephemera envelope and layered on the paints, tape, tags, foliage, etc. It is so much fun to just play and try things out! Thanks for hosting another amazing challenge!
