I have been working on my new logo and these are the ones that I have come up with so far. I really want the design to be the focus and the colors will change with each collection and got packaging thus way the overall design will stay the same but the color will help the design to fit in each collection.

This is an art journal spread that I wanted to share today. It is truly a mixed media piece. I started with a page that I already had painted with Deco Art Media Gesso and let dry for a while. (A couple of days at least, I like to work in steps and will add Deco Art Media Gesso or base paint to the pages and let them dry for a while and them come back to them later). I then picked three colors of Aqua Marker that complemented each other and just added color to the page and than some water to let the run and bleed into each other.
After I let that layer dry for a while I went back and removed even more of the Aqua Marker color from the page so that I would just have a hint of the colors on the page. I took some Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylic Paint in colors that Complement the original colors and painted circles on one side of the spread and a border of triangles on the other side.
I then sketched in the words "Be The Light" with a pencil and went over it with the Aqua Marker and they were really too light for the job so I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils to darken the letters and widen some of the strokes.
To finish it off I added a few highlights with a PITT Artist Pen - White Large Bullet Nib .

I still working on my project for MATS Bootcamp. So , I really wanted to share some of the other designs that I have worked up.
This is a floral design based on a flower brooch. I used the color pallet that we were given and added a couple more colors and I thought made the designs pop.

Inspiration from my collection of vintage brooches that were my Grandmother.
Shopping for even more inspiration at Hobby Lobby.
Drawing from my inspiration with both color pencils and my computer.
I love sketching with a pencil first and then inking the lines in with a fine line pen.
Here is one that I have worked up in a lot of different ways once I got it on the computer.
These are a couple that never made it past the sketch phase.
Come back tomorrow and I will have a few finished pieces that I have worked up.
