Wednesday Wonder – Mini Art Journal Technique with Denise Alloca

In today’s Wednesday Wonder, I’d like to introduce you to Denise Alloca from My Art Adventures. Since I seem to love all things small, I loved her featured video on Donna Downey’s Artist Gang this week. She created a little art journal and shows how she made it from one sheet of paper, and the cover from an empty cereal box. This is a fantastic way to create the backgrounds for a journal, and then have it ready for anything else you’d like to do to complete each page. This basic technique idea will allow you to use supplies you already have on-hand! I have posted two of Denise’s videos below. Enjoy!

If you’re ready for spring, as so many of us are, you’ll love this next video, too. See how she uses pieces of cardboard for some of her mark making, especially the petals of the flowers.

You can see Denise’s entire post with closeups of these little canvases on her blog.

You are welcome to share photos of your own Artful Adventures in our Facebook Group!

Cheers to YOUR Artful Adventures!
