Art Journal: The Written Word Challenge


My entry for Mixed-Media Monday’s challenge, The Written Word. This is nothing like what I envisioned. I was going to take pictures and make another tutorial, but it started going south at the beginning. If I made a tutorial from this, you would be extremely lost from all the replanning and repurposing and experimentation, haha. I’m fairly happy with the end result, but not so sure about the feather. Funny thing is that’s one of the few things that was part of my  original plan. Quote is from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass. It kinda looks like my art supplies had a party, but I think thats appropriate for a Lewis Carroll quote, even if that wasn’t what I intended.

Materials used: book page, lined paper, tissue paper, watercolor, stamps, ink, prismacolor markers

Happy Birthday Dani! A Peter Pan ATC

Dani and I had creative writing classes together since freshman year, and from the start, I loved her writing. I really got to know her more towards the end of the program (it always seems to work that way…) but I count her among my dearest friends. She has a passion for J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan (yes, this is the same friend with whom I made the treasure box) and so I decided I’d make an ATC for her birthday featuring the homeland of her imagination– neverland. However, she is away visiting her family’s homeland– the Philippines– so she won’t get it until she gets home. I hope she might see it on here though 🙂


I took pictures as I worked, so a tutorial will be coming.

See my other ATCs.
