Art Journal FAQ

since I get the same few asks every day about my art journal!

1. What markers do you use?
•Copic Markers. I have so many because my mom got them from a friend for lower than half price about 5 years ago.

2. What is that white ink?
•It’s a Gelly Roll 08 white pen.

3. What type of journal do you use? Does it bleed through?
•An artist’s loft “fashion journal” with acid free paper. Yes, it does bleed through so I skip every other page. I don’t mind that though.

4. What inspired you to start Art journaling?
•My mom does some mixed media Art journaling and I wanted to try my own type. I was going through a rough time and needed a way to cope. It works pretty well.

5. How do I start an art journal?
•There are no guidelines and boundaries. Stick whatever you want in there and journal with your emotions. Paint over things if you don’t like it. If you want to say something, say it. It’s /your/ art journal.

One stamp, two very different art journal pages.

On the first page, I used a brayer to apply craft paint, then stamped on top of the paint after it was dry. FAIL - the stamping was too pale to read, so I went over it with a Fude Ball 1.5 and a black Gelly Roll 08..

On the second page, I stamped first, then used a Kuretake brush pen and Winsor & Newton alcohol markers.

Questions are the creative acts of intelligence.

30 day #SaveWOY email campaign

Let’s get this next #SaveWOY project rolling from tomorrow! (02/08/16

So my idea is to send Disney an email a day talking about a different topic of WOY/SaveWOY each day. Disney are currently in possession of both SaveWOY flash drives so let’s work on sending them emails in the meantime while they possibly take a look at the drives.

I want to get this 20.3% as close to 100% as possible! I need everyone to get involved! I’d like for everyone to send their emails on the same day (starting tomorrow 02/08/16 with Day 1) but if you’re joining us after we’ve started then feel free to start this whenever you want!

I want you to send these emails to both and

I’ll be posting the daily topic and more information on what to include on my blog every morning so keep an eye on my blog if you don’t want to keep referring back to this post.

Here are the topics!

That’ll take us right up to the end of August. Now a few rules -

 Always be polite and respectful with your emails to Disney. 

Do not bash other shows or use offensive language. 

Type ‘SaveWOY’ somewhere in the email title if you can.

Don’t worry about being completely professional with your emails. I know emailing Disney can be scary but please don’t worry about it. Your email doesn’t have to be 100% professional. Just be polite and respectful.

It’s good to start your email off with “Dear Gary Marsh/ Dear Cecilia Johnson/ Dear Disney”

It’s up to you if you want to include your name/username at the end of each email.

and that’s it. Please signal boost this and get involved so we can get as many emails sent to Disney as possible! Any questions? Feel free to message me or use my ask box. Thank you.

Update: Cecilia Johnson is currently on maternity leave so we will just email instead.

Stenciled the hexagons with yellow watercolor, then used a lighter yellow watercolor between the hexagons, Screen printed the big bee, then stamped the smaller bee and the word. Using a black Gelly Roll 08 that kept clogging (ARGH), wrote out informational quotes about bees from a dictionary, a concise encyclopedia, and wikipedia.

Axl’s Guitar Playing

“Axl is rhythym guitar on his own songs for the time being.” (Slash chat, 07/30/96)

“I can’t really play guitar too well, I only play the top two strings.” (Axl, Rolling Stone, 08/10/89)

“For the last couple of years, [Axl] started to go, ‘Okay, I’m going to play guitar and actually learn what these notes are.’ It’s an innocent guitar, not unlike Izzy (Stradlin, ex-GN'R guitarist) was, but Axl’s got a lot more musically than Izzy ever did.’” (Duff, Addicted to Noise, 08/30/96)

“'That tripped me out when I first came back,’ Slash says. ‘I figured ‘Okay, that’s where his focus has been. I haven’t really talked to him about it, to tell the truth. I guess he’s just been sitting at home, figuring out chords or something. Maybe he’s been taking lessons.” (Slash, Total Guitar, 01/97)

“Right now, he’s playing guitar and it’s like he plays that instrument for ten years.” (Matt, 09/23/96)
