Create your first mixed media art journal page!

by | Art journal love | 2 comments

”Artyshils” is a lovely mixed media artist who is also very talented. I love her use of bright colours and the kindness that comes out of every face she paints…

I thought you guys might enjoy a video she did where she shows you step by step how she creates one of her art journal pages. If you have never tried mixed media, don’t be scared! Just follow what she does and you will soon be on your way 🙂

The thing to remember is just to have fun! You DON’T need expensive materials, just some paper, some paints and brushes and ideally, some gesso to allow you to paint on any porous surface.

Let me know if you have any questions about starting with mixed media or art journaling and I’ll do my best to help you!



  1. What pens/markers do you recommend for the actual journaling? I have ruined more pens & markers than I can count. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
