Art Journaling with Colored Pencils

Being Alive, an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

My latest art journal page started with new colored pencils and rambling thoughts of the latest news from Helsinki: the architecture competition of Guggenheim museum has ended and now there’s a big debate whether the city of Helsinki should finance the museum or not. I did not mean to include the winner building on the page, but you know how it goes: once you think something, it will appear! See the black element in the right!

Cretacolor Aqua Monolith Watercolor Pencils

Last Monday I went to the biggest art supply store in Helsinki to buy some paper and see if they had any Cretacolor Aqua Monolith Watercolor Pencils. I had bought one pencil about a year ago just to see how it works. After many months, I noticed the growing use of that pencil. So now I was thinking to buy a couple more. It turned out that they did not sell the pencils individually anymore, so I bought the smallest set of 12.

Creatacolor Aqua Monolith Watercolor Pencils

As you can see from the picture, these pencils are nothing like ordinary colored pencils! They are not wooden at all, they only have a thin lacquer coating! For me it took some time to get used to how they feel when holding them. But once I got over it and started treating them as any pencil, (pressing lightly and creating multiple thin layers), I noticed that they work great. Thse pencils are soft enough to make the coloring pleasurable but not too soft for detailed work.

It is fascinating that you can also use shavings if you add a little bit water to them!

My art journal page was made without water – these watercolor pencils work really well that way too.

All of my colored pencils fit in two jars as I usually use them all at the same time, no matter what their brand or type is.

Adding Writing to the Page

I was drawn to green tones even if I was thinking of the city view. There’s something magical when the tourists arrive to Helsinki in the spring. They make shy and withdrawn Finnish people more friendly and helpful. When the hard winter is over, everybody is willing to make a fresh start.

While continuing the coloring of the page, I thought about cultural institutes and their events. Whether it is a city full of tourists or a concert hall full of audience, it feels alive and uplifting. It gives me energy and inspiration to create once I get back home. I felt really drawn to the word “alive” and decided to add some words to the page too. By erasing some areas after coloring, I created areas for writing.

For me, being alive is a visual thing. When I am using my senses, I see images. When I draw the images, I feel alive.

Inspirational Adjectives for Your Art

"Introvert", an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

This art journal page is called “Introvert”. I made it while thinking about how much I enjoy spending time alone. My love for sharing and interacting are not the only things that can be found from me, I am also an introvert who needs time to ponder and visualize what’s going on in my inner world. For me, it is often difficult to express myself fully in writing, so I like to create an image first and then write down the thoughts. Usually my thoughts have moved forward and come clearer after working with the image.

"Introvert", an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

My Inspirational Adjectives

When I begin creating and while I am creating, I often get inspired by single words. Many times the same adjectives fascinate me, at least for a while, before I have found new ones. These adjectives challenge me to both start and finish the artwork.

These are my current adjectives: “imaginative”, “forward-thinking”, “avant garde”, “visionary”, “historical”, “futuristic”. I am especially fascinated by adjectives that are somewhat opposites like “historical -futuristic” or which describe a new kind of idea like “forward-thinking – imaginative”. While creating the page I introduced the adjective “introvert” and got inspired by “visionary – introvert”. Brown watercolor seemed just the right choice for an introvert!

Creating of an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

I continued with the black pen, not worrying about what to draw. Namely, it is difficult to express “visionary” without actually having something to look at!

It was a warm summer day so I took my colored pencils outside and started coloring carelessly.

I added some watercolors with a thinner brush after coloring a while.

How to Choose Your Adjectives?

Some people think that art is some kind of outside thing that is defined by various pre-named styles and standards. In general level that might be the case but when creating art, the focus should not be in those outside standards. Your uniqueness should be your standard and thus your adjectives should be set so that you respond to them strongly. They should make you feel not only excited, but a little bit scary. For example instead of “caring” you might choose “sensitive” or “connected”. Seek for detailed words that can be found behind the adjectives that first come to your mind when you are thinking about yourself and your values.

Express Your Adjectives!

Start seeing and enhancing your personality, your adjectives, your values in what you create. What ever you work looks like when you are in the middle of it, think about those adjectives and find ways to express them. “Introvert” instantly brought black color to my mind. “Visionary” made me look for circles like eyes. As there’s something mystique in the combination of those adjectives, I set a quite dark and little bit dramatic color scheme.

From intuitive to more intentional way of creating art, by Peony and Parakeet

When you focus on things that excite and scare you, your art becomes more meaningful. It can bring new kinds of thoughts and ideas not only for you, but also for others. Everybody doesn’t need to know your adjectives. Art can be often interpreted in many ways. But your creativity is most powerful when it’s focused and few inspirational adjectives can bring that focus!

Art Journal about Love for Home!

Home sofa, an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

I am honored to be the featured artist in Documented Life Project this week! The theme is Hometown inspiration: “There is no place like home”. This, if any, is suitable for me and for my art journal! I had a stay-at-home mother and we did not travel much as a family. Probably because of that, I have always loved being at home. When I worked away from home, I missed it all the time. Nowadays, especially every morning when I wake up, I am extremely grateful to be able to work from home!

Let’s create an art journal page to celebrate home!

1) Background – Outside from Home

How do your surroundings look like when you are not at home?
Bring those things to the background of your page!

I thought about the situations when arriving home is most appealing. The house, and the living room couch, looks the most welcoming after walking the dogs on a bad weather.

Snow storm in Finland

Being a dog owner and living in Finland, I have been in the middle of snow storms, pouring rain and everything between.

2) Focal Point – Inside Your Home

Pick some of the items from your home which represent your love for home!

I wanted to express the experience of staying inside, feeling happy, warm and safe from the blowing winds. A couch and house plants are good symbols for that.

3) Location, Location!

Create the page where you feel most at home!

We visual people are often very easily affected by the environment were we create. To make sure that the page would express of a warm and comfortable place, I created the page by sitting on the living room couch.

4) Start by Drawing Freely

Draw and doodle on the page. Don’t worry too much about the end result!

The beginning of an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

5) Add Color (+ 3 new ideas)

To make sure that your page expresses an experience and is not only a static illustration, add few new thoughts and ideas when coloring the page.

1st: For me, the first idea was the green color. Namely, living in Finland is not only enduring snow and rain. Now in summer we have daylight almost through the night. Actually, if you read this on 20th June, we Finnish will be celebrating Midsummer, one our biggest holidays.

This photo was taken just a week ago when walking the dogs 11 pm in the evening.

Light summers in Finland

2nd: My second new idea was that home is not only a house or a apartment. It is a mental state. When I feel at home, my cup gets filled, I become peaceful and energetic at the same time.

The cup is full!

The combination of peace and energy looks yellow to me. So I made sure that the focal point has a lot of yellow. I also cut a yellow heart and glued it on the page with a gel medium.

Love for art journaling, by Peony and Parakeet

3rd: Where ever we go, we always carry a piece of home with us. My third idea was to add some red spots to the background to express that.

Boosted Expression

When you bring new ideas and thoughts around the theme while you are creating, you are not only making the page look more alive and expressive. You are also allowing your thoughts to move forward with creating.

Supplies Used

A black drawing pen (Micron 0.8 mm), colored pencils, a piece of scrap paper and some gel medium were the only supplies used on this page.

Art Quilts in a Modern Way

Folk Music, digital art from handmade elements, by Peony and Parakeet

Here’s something that I have wanted to show you for a long time! I have been working with a custom order which made me think of a new idea: to create fabric prints and make quilted wallhangings from them. This idea is very versatile as you don’t have to be a quilter, you can print your art on fabric and use it for bags, purses, clothes – anything!

The artwork above has been composed digitally from various art that I have made. The person who ordered this, is a fan of modern folk music and the color red. (If you have not listened to modern folk songs, try Hanneke Cassel for example!)

I created one new piece for the artwork. All the other details are picked from my archives.

It was pretty exciting to send the artwork to Spoonflower. When I received the fabric, the print quality was really sharp and detailed! I already knew from the previous experiences that big areas of black don’t print well, so I avoided those.

If you are a quilter, you know that the fabric will look so much better when quilted! I sandwiched cotton wadding, two layers of fusible interfacing and backing fabric and took out my sewing machine.

I am not very experienced with free-motion quilting using the free-motion foot so I used even-feed foot instead. But with patience I was able to create quilting that enhanced my brush strokes.

The finished quilt is about 45 x 39 inches.

I used various colors of shiny embroidery threads for quilting. Using black thread brings the real black that was not produced by digital printing.

I added the label to the printing file too.

Here’s another project that I actually made earlier to test the idea. This one does not contain much digital processing, I only took a good photo of the original art and enchanced it a little bit.

I think this artwork looks really good on fabric! The actual idea when creating the original was to mimick hand embroidery! Read about creating the original artwork: When Pens Replace Needles

I added some embroidery before quilting, but found out that quilting works well as decoration.

Using Fabric on Art Journal Pages

So Much Gardening to Do, an art journal page that uses fabric pieces, by Peony and Parakeet
At this time of the year, in the beginning of summer, there’s a lot to do in the garden. I started early this year but recently there has been so much activities that I feel I have neglected the garden. This guilty feeling also showed up on my latest art journal page!

This page is made on a spread of Moleskine Sketchbook, so the image is fairly small, about 10 inches in width. A special feature here is that I have added two small cotton fabric pieces to boost my imagination. This was just a sudden idea but I actually love how the page feels when touched!

Using Fabric Pieces on Art Journal Pages, by Peony and Parakeet

I attached the first fabric piece at the early stage. Golden Soft Gel Gloss medium was used for attaching the fabric.

After attaching the fabric, I doodled with a black drawing pen to get creativity going.

When I began coloring, I realized that I want to create a spread instead of a page. So I attached another fabric, purposefully a bit different from the first.

While coloring the page I added more details. As my garden looks wild at the moment, I wanted to show the growth on the page too.

Simple Shape, Plenty of Expression

Circle #1, by Peony and Parakeet

I began to create these circles a while ago. They have been created in Photoshop but they use scanned elements of my hand drawn art. The message here is: don’t wait for a major inspiration or grand idea! Your starting point can be one simple shape. Self-expression does not require complex sketching.

Simple Exercise

Creating an art journal page is easy:
1) Draw a circle.
2) Doodle inside it.
3) Color the page. You can add more details while coloring.

Organizing Art Supplies with Konmari Method

Flying with Balloons, an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

This art journal page is about how less stuff can uplift us. I feel like a bird with balloons after I sorted out my art and papercrafting supplies.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

It all started from a book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. It is written by Japanese professional organizer Marie Kondo and she calls her method “Konmari”, which is an abbreviation of her name.

Marie Kondo, Konmari, decluttering book, sweaters on a shelf

The Konmari method is fairly simple. First you get rid of all the stuff you don’t use or enjoy, and then you store them by type. The process is explained more in detail in the book. The book recommends starting with clothes so I organized my sweaters first. Most of them are my own handknits. Marie Kondo explains how to fold each type of clothing and recommends storing things so that you can see them in a row. I have always believed in little joys in life. However I had never thought of how much joy seeing those sweaters can bring.  Each time I open the closet, it joyfully reminds me how much I enjoy both knitting and colors!

Art Supplies that Spark Joy

Marie Kondo believes in handling each object separately and considering if it sparks joy. These spark most joy to me: colored pencils and watercolors! These most simple art supplies delight me more than any new product on the market.

Paivi from Peony and Parakeet with an art journal spread colored with colored pencils

If you have followed this blog for a longer time, you might have noticed that the variety of mediums that I use in my art has been reduced gradually, especially during the last year. I noticed that I had bought many of the products believing they would solve my creative problems. I thought they would make me create better art faster and make creating more fun. But when experimenting with new products I forgot how little ingredients are actually needed for creating meaningful art. Nowadays I feel sad when I see beginners reading instructions that involve huge variety of art supplies. The long lists of supplies are overwhelming and prevent many from start creating.

I believe we should focus less on things and more in our inner world. And Marie Kondo thinks exactly the same! She believes that when we are surrounded by less things, we can treat them better and start thinking what we really want to do in life. I believe that when you use less supplies, a lot of energy is saved from picking and choosing for the actual creating. You will also grow attached to the supplies and start displaying them and taking care of them more often.

Working Area Before and After

Even if I organize my creative space regularly, I felt it was the time for a bigger change. I had already started re-organizing my creative space before reading Marie Kondo’s book, so it felt natural to continue that process.

Creative Space before and after, Konmari method, Marie Kondo

The photo on the left has been taken some time ago. After that I had already cleared the view to the window. But I had not actually got rid of anything, I had just removed some of the stuff to the nearest shelf unit. This time I picked out every single object and decided to give away or throw away those that I had not used for a long time. The photo on the right shows how the table looks like now!

Konmari Method Applied to Art Supplies

Marie Kondo suggests not to put items on the top of each other. That is quite difficult to achieve with art supplies. I managed pretty well though. Jars and boxes help with that.

Art supplies organized with Konmari method

My creative space also includes shelves. Here organising was a bit more challenging and the end result might not be how Marie Kondo had done it. She would probably grouped all the paper booklets, albums and magazines together. However I quite like it as there’s enough logic in how everything is located. As one of my hobbies is scrapbooking I have a large collection of stamps. I was able to put them all to one place on the upmost shelf.

Art supplies organized with Konmari method

Marie Kondo believes that we should take time to consider which is the best way for storing each item. I found that odd bottles of ink are much happier in spray bottles with other liquid inks. Paints are now in boxes on the right side of the middle shelf. I love how easily accessible all the supplies are and how my art journals and inspiring magazines fitted there too.

How to Prevent Decluttering?

According to Konmari method the secret of staying organized is this: once you have dramatically reduced the amount of stuff  and organized by type, you will consider buying new things much more carefully. When you group items by type, you will remember what you already have. When I saw what I had bought during the years, I thought that many times I could have just left the store early and put the time in creating. Focusing on fewer art supplies has reduced my yearn for shopping, so I do believe what Marie writes about.

Find a Focus for Your Art

"I am listening", an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

This is my latest art journal page with colored pencils. It is called “I Am Listening”.

The Phases behind the Artwork

I knew that it would be a good moment to create art, when I heard about a live broadcast of an opera La Traviata. To enhance the atmosphere, I adjusted lighting and closed gliding doors in the room where I was creating.

Evening of opera and art, by Peony and Parakeet

When I started drawing, I had no idea what the final result would represent.

First phase in creating an art journal page, by Peony and Parakeet

And even when I began coloring the page, I had no clue.

Creating a drawing on an art journal, by Peony and Parakeet

But once I had worked for a while, I saw the face appearing on the page. Soon I knew that the drawing would be about listening to music and how it activates the whole brain. I have experienced that personally, but Finnish researchers have proved it scientifically too.

"I am listening", a detail of an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

Focus Sets You Free!

I used to hate people who repeated: focus, focus, focus! I questioned back: “Isn’t experimenting an essential part of creating art? Shouldn’t art set us free, instead of steering us to a certain narrow path?”

But after finding my focus, I realized that I had had misconceptions. The focus should not be a single subject like “birds” or “faces”, certain supplies like “acrylics” or certain style like “cubism”. The focus should not come from outside, but inside. It should answer to the question: “When thinking of self-expression, where are you best at?” This kind of focus will lead you to see more possibilities. You will experiment more and you will broaden your perspective.

I did not mistakenly listened to dramatic music in the suitable surroundings. I used it as a tool to bring out where I am best at: visualizing experiences, systems and transformations. That’s my focus. Whatever I doodle, I can feel free as I do not have to worry about what will appear. My focus will feed my subconscious and my imagination.

For some of my students the focus has been “feelings in relationships”. For some it has been “fairy tales” or “mysteries”. Some have been skillful in seeing “the beauty of everyday life”, others thrive on “atmospheres of dimensional spaces.”

"I am listening", an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

Inspirational Drawing – Find Your Focus!

If you have followed me a bit longer, you might have noticed that my focus on experiences, systems and transformations is central in this blog too. I am always willing to write about how to change something for the better or how to develop creative processes. If you love to talk or write about something, start bringing it to your images too!

But even more than that, free intuitive drawing will help you find your focus. When you let your subconscious take control and develop new drawing routines, you will get to see bigger themes appearing naturally. This is a reason why I developed Inspirational Drawing, a 4-week online workshop that will teach you how to enjoy drawing without being confined by certain subjects or styles. >> Reserve your spot now!

See What You Think!

What I Think and How I Think, an art journal page spread by Peony and Parakeet

Here’s an art journal spread that I created from two little incidents: the intellectual and the emotional.

The Intellectual Incident

Last week I went to an art gallery to see Ola Kolehmainen‘s photography exhibition. I often get very emotional when I go to see art, but this time I was more intrigued by structures and concepts than having heartfelt experiences. Ola Kolehmainen’s photo collages had a cubistic touch which made me experiment with squares and archs too.

Starting an art journal page, by Peony and Parakeet

The starting point of the page looked pretty stiff and formal to me. But also I felt excited about how it would direct my thoughts when continuing drawing and coloring.

Thoughts about Perfection and Order

Working intuitively means working without exact further knowledge, by Peony and Parakeet

Working intuitively means that I do not always know what ‘s going to appear next. I just focus on a small area at the time. While listening to some opera pieces, I remembered how close mathematics and music were in the 18th century. One of the great mathematicians Leonhard Euler was also extremely interested in music. I feel that similarly, drawing can be an experience where we use the intellectual side of us: find out new solutions, practice nuances and fine-tune shapes until everything seems to be in its place. Like Euler said: “… in any thing where there is perfection, there is necessarily also order.”

Finishing an art journal page, by Peony and Parakeet

The Emotional Incident

But then, when we aim for perfection, we often miss the experience. Like the exhibition last week – I went out without noticing any particular change in my feelings. Then, this morning when walking the dogs, I saw the growing leaves and how they glowed against the sun. The sight was so beautiful, although ordinary at this time of the year. Nevertheless, I felt like opening a door to a great gallery – to a nature’s supreme art exhibition!

Leaves against the light

Combining The Two Incidents

When I got back home, I thought that it would be really interesting to interpret this controversy of the intellectual and the emotional on the same spread. I expressed my nature experience with carelessness but with clarity and then made it work with the page that had become very detailed but pretty complex.

A detail of an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

I wrote: “When I see what I think, I become whole” and “When I see HOW I think, I become happy”.

This page spread is not only about going to art gallery last week and walking the dogs this week. This is what happened inside me and how these incidents were combined to continue my story as an artist.

Stop to See Your Inner World!

From Innovation to Experience, an art journal page by Peony and Parakeet

If you watched my recent video interview, you know that I love technology and innovations. People often say that technology is a tool. I do understand that phrase and agree with that to a certain point. But if I had to define technology, I would say that like art, it’s an experience. Whether I read about a new innovation in technology, or see an interesting artwork, I like to stop and think how I feel about it.

A sketch with a black pen, intuitive drawing by Peony and Parakeet

Now you might ask: “Why would I take any abstract concept or inanimate object and add emotion to it?”
My answer is: “Because that’s how you boost your imagination!”
When we see technology as a crowded concert or a tea cup as a gentle old lady, we will open a door to our inner world.

Intuitive drawing with colored pencils by Peony and Parakeet

Often it requires that we stop. Stop taking in common generalizations, and start adding our own associations. This does not mean that you should do it all the time, but in small moments, every day. Because like Terry Pratchett has said: “Humans need fantasy to be human.”

Making of an art journal page, by Peony and Parakeet

By drawing we can work our fantasies so that they become insights. Instead of  continuously searching inspiration from outside world, we can take time for processing information inside. When we integrate our past experiences with new ones, we can have an improved view to our life as a whole. As visual people we can produce images that have that unified vision. These kind of holistic visions are almost impossible to express with words, that’s why they are called “the big picture”.
