I have detailed videos on my blog and YouTube Channel on how to make Coptic stitched art journals with and without covers. This video is more about a quick introduction on making a tiny journal (2.5″ x 3.5″) which is what I”m using for the 365 Art a Day Project.
Not an instructional how to, but more of what you can do to make your journal a bit more sturdy if you are using thin paper, such as drawing paper.
Although this Modified Midori Journal is primarily for our 365 Art a Day Project, you can use it for anything you want. It’s great if you want to remove your art booklets or replace them with something else. For more information about the 365 Art a Day Project, click here for the blog post on the site or click here for our Facebook Group.
In session 27 of the DOUG 2014 series, I had created this very simple painting, geared towards anyone wanting to make a piece of art fast or for youngsters who want to be creative. After filming this, we had major technical issues and two videos were affected, so I had to film another painting. Because this painting was done on a Book of Backgrounds page (textured page on the left), I decided to turn this into an opportunity to show you how to get the same look on any random background, regardless of what it is (right)
Techniques include stenciling, broad brush strokes, layering and glazing.
