Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Do It

Welcome, everyone! Wow and welcome to November!! It’s Shari Carroll here with an art journal feature where I’m working in the Dina Wakley white 6×6 journal where I’ve taken my inspiration from a page in Dina’s Media Collage Collective book.

I’ve tried to channel my inner Dina by using her paints to block out a center area of the journal pages. By adding water to them, they act much like watercolors but are permanent.

Once everything was dry, I used stencils, paste, and some simple collaging. If you haven’t tried art journaling yet, this type of page is a great way to start.

  1. Shari
    Love this! Is the saying around the main design from the collage books? I am just starting to art journal and I really like it, I find it is relaxing. Do you have more videos? Also did you use collage medium on the middle of the page and what did you use to lighten up the one color.
    Once again beautiful page.
    Thanks for sharing

    1. Hi Becky, yes, I used gel medium to cover the center strings. I used water to lighten the paint. The writing around the edge is my own printing. You can search Shari Carroll on this blog and you’ll find plenty of examples of my work. There’s always a video! Thanks!!

  2. I have never art journaled before, but it looks like a lot of fun! Thanks for the inspiration! The layout turned out really cool! I love the message around the edges also, it’s so important and so true! We are enough!

  3. Gorgeous Shari. Love that powerful sentiment on the border. We all have days when we need this kind of encouragement!! Great job!

  4. These pages are an interesting process to get to the final product. How do you know which mediums to use to get those results? Like the creative process. Thank you.

    1. Hi Patricia,
      The more you practice and experiment, the more you learn. If you search Shari Carroll on this blog you can find several examples of my art journaling and mixed media projects to get you started. Thanks!!

  5. Each match your play on Dota 2 is unique. What makes this unique? First, the variety of heroes to play. Second, you get different opponent teams and https://dota2-bets.net/ random teammates. Third, the outcome of the game depends not only on you but on your teammates and the rival team. You never predict the flow of the game and what each player is capable of, which makes Dota 2 truly exciting.
