Some Serious Art Techniques

Hello folks,

Last week I didn't have much to say to the world.  I was in a mood to absorb and that is exactly what I did.  I absorbed a ton of YouTube creative videos and I found a fabulous Art Journalist out of the UK. 
Jennibellie is a lovable soul with a penchant for paper creativity and recycling. She has made quite a few videos for YouTube including the one on background techniques that I have shared below.  If you are serious about mixed media and different techniques that can be applied to mailart, I find her tutorials are an excellent source even if they are geared towards art journals and smash books.
But here, you watch and be the judge for yourself.  After I watched her, I made those postcards I displayed on make something Monday.  My brain is still soaking up all the ideas and I have no doubt this will not be the last time I mention her name on my blog or draw inspirations from the trail she has already blazed.

(be forewarned the video is just under 25 minutes, so watch when you have time)

I hope you enjoy!

P.s. I do not know Jennibellie and am not endorsing any of her products, I am just swooning over her interesting take on art and recycling!
