Art Journal for Graduation

May 29th, 2011

Screen shot of Ustream broadcastThis week on The Artistic Biker Live! I did a page dedicated to Girl1’s high school graduation.  I did a scrapbook type collage in the background. I made a pocket to keep a photo of her in her cap & gown clutching her diploma.  Then I painted my version of it on top.  I made the comment that I could do that because it’s not a scrapbook.  Immediately my mom attacks me for a perceived slight to scrapbookers.  I did NOT say anything bad about Croppers! I just pointed out a difference between my art journal and a scrapbook. <Grin>

Announcements:

Moon-light Studios is gearing up for a 10-week certified drawing class.  Upon completion of this class, you will receive a certificate of completion to add to your arsenal or just paste into your journal.  The class is designed to help any skill level artist improve.  The best part is the class is only $25! I lied, THE BEST PART is that of that $25, Jay will donate $5 to Oasis Studios and Gallery (my studio where we broadcast The Artistic Biker Live!).  He also has said that anything you pay above that, he will donate too! Click Here for Moonlight Studios Drawing Classes!

@DarcyW has a series of prompts and challenges going on at her Art and Sole website called 52 Pages. She’ll give you a single word prompt like “Endeavor”, “Crush”, or “Replicate”, and leave it to your imagination how you will use it in your journal.

If you have any announcements you would like to see here, send them my way.  I’m happy to give back to a community that has given me so much!Click Here to Add Your Announcement!

Here are the folks that sent me links to their work for the What’s On Your Easel segment of the show.  If you or anyone you know would like to be featured in this segment, send me tweet or e-mail me with a link to your blog or photo hosting page like Flickr.

The You Tube

Graduation Journal Page Girl1 is a hi skul grajawit!  I used to sing True Colors to her every night at bed time, so it’s only fitting for a video dedicated to her graduation.

A treasure troll of a man, with hobbit feet and a sharp pointy head. You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast
