Mixed Media Nature Art Journal Friday


During the summer, the kids spend Friday at their Dad’s.  It gives me an extra break. The rest of the year we use Friday for activities,  a day out, dvd documentaries, etc.

It’s a very relaxed day.

On Friday’s here, I’d like to share my nature journal and process of making pages.

This week, I got out the deer skull I brought home to sketch last April and finally got around to it.

I begin with a contour sketch  in permanent pen. I don’t use pencil, so that I need to be brave, and satisfied with mistakes.


Then I used watercolor for shadow


Then I added color with watercolor and oil pastel


Final touches and journaling (covered the pastel in mod podge to keep it from smearing)
