Testing new art pens

Got these brand spanking new Faber Castell Brush Pens and just love them! Blends beautifully with a bit of water – almost like water colour pencils. Can’t wait to try them with a Mixed Media project on my next Art Journal page. Black outline was done with a fine tip Steadler pen.

Imagination (Mixed Media Art)

Loved doing this piece of art work. I think it’s because I was working with my favourite colours!


Nobody owns a cat (Mixed Media Art)

With this page in my art journal I decided on doing another piece with cats, because you know, I love cats! I did the cat designs on Procreate and then coloured with acrylics. The sky and brick wall were done with acrylics and stencil texture added with coloured modeling paste. 4Artist Markers were used for the outlines and details.

A Purrrrfect Day (Mixed Media)

For this page in my art journal I experimented with black on red. The splatters were a challenge because I wanted them to be thick and raised so you could feel them when your fingers run over the page. I was very happy with the end results. The kitty was painted with acrylics and outlined with Pebeo’s absolutely fantastic 4Artist Marker in white.
