Art Journal with me: Collaging

Hello everyone, I hope your Monday is going well! I thought I would kick off the week, with something a little different and throw some creativity at you all! For today’s post I will be art journaling: Collaging edition. For the many of you who do not know, I am very creative if I do say so myself, and one of my absolute favorite art activities to do is, collaging. I got into collaging a few months ago and it is something that I never get sick of because there is always new inspiration out there. Collaging is amazing because you can use different types of media to create a collage, making it personal and unique to you. Throughout this post, I will be sharing some of my tips on how to start collaging and my collaging process for today’s collage.

  • Get Inspired//Find Inspiration:

Inspiration is everywhere around you, whether it’s in nature, on the internet, or in a physical item. In my personal opinion the best place to get inspiration from is either magazines or on pinterest. There is so much out there that will inspire you or call your attention. I love when I flip through a magazine and it’s almost like something is speaking to me on the page, so whether it is an image or words, I cut it out to use in a collage of mine.  

  • Finding a theme:

Okay so this one is not an essential, however I find that when establishing a theme for the collage, it will help you be on the lookout for images/words that correspond to your theme when looking for ideas. A theme could be a mood board, aesthetics, a color, or feelings. Do not discouraged if you cannot find a theme, because sometimes they will form later on or sometimes it is just what you find exhilarating.  

  • Using what you have:

The best thing about collages is that you do not have to go out and buy materials, you can easily use any of the supplies you have at home. Look through old magazines, if you have paint then add paint to your collage, if you have a printer then find images on the internet, go outside to get flowers and leaves, use buttons, tissue paper, or whatever materials your heart desires. Be imaginative and mix your supplies together to create your collage.

Things you will need:

  • An art Journal or paper
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick or mod podge
  • Inspiration & any kind of materials you want for your collage

Okay so now onto my collaging process. I went to an art journaling class the other night and I was inspired to create a collage that had a blue color scheme, it went really well with the page in my journal and I thought why not try it. At home I gathered images and background colors through magazines, cutting them out, I also used different shades of blue tissue paper to layer my pictures on.

I gathered some magazines I got earlier this year to flip through, my scissors and my glue stick. Look for images that speak to you or call your attention and then cut away!

Once you have a good amount of images to choose from, start forming how you want your collage to look.

Start gluing random pieces on top of each other, for an overlapping messy look.

If you notice any gaps or empty white spaces that are not covered, then simply get coloring materials (in this case I used pens and colored pencils, to color in the white spaces or you can choose to leave them, the choice is yours. IMG-1320

Once you are done, you will have your masterpiece. Collaging is just this great way to be inspired and to express yourself. I find it ultimately relaxing and a creative source for inspo. So the next time you are feeling artistic, gather some supplies and your journal, play some winter acoustic tunes on spotify, and let your mind take you to another place.

Valentine’s Day Simple Glam Look | 2018

Hello beauties, Chicago’s currently having a snow day today, we are expected to have a foot of snow by tonight, I love snow so this is pretty great. Since there is a snow day today, I decided to take advantage of the day and work on today’s blog post and a few other ones! For today’s post I will be showing you a Simple Glam Valentine’s Day Makeup Look, (as a disclaimer I am not a makeup artist or anything, but I do love makeup and love to share my creativity with all of you). I hope this post gives you ideas for Valentine’s Day makeup, I kept today’s post shorter and I will also link down all the products I used down below.

Products Used:

05879D90-9C8F-41FB-AED9-45E744216289
Close-up of the Modern Renaissance.

1st Step: To start off, I use the shade Buon Fresco as my transition color, using my Luxie 205 Tapered Blending brush. I blend the color to get a seamless base for my eyeshadow.

2nd Step: With the same brush I previously used before, I apply a bit of the color “Burnt Orange” into the crease.

3rd Step: With my Luxie 229 Tapered Blending brush, I apply the shade “Red Ochre” to the outermost and innermost parts of my crease, leaving the middle empty, doing this adds a bit of depth to my eyes.

4th Step: Taking my Wet n Wild Large shadow brush, I compact the shade “Love Letter”, on the center of my lid, working it into my crease. I make sure my lid is bright and fully covered. (The color really starts to pick up here).

5th Step: With the color “Venetian Red”, I use the Real Techniques Shading brush to apply along my lash line, slightly smoking it out, and to darken the outer corners of my eyes.

6th Step: Using “Venetian Red” again, I take my bh cosmetics V5 Blending brush to really blend out “Love Letter” and to make the shadow look seamless.

7th Step: Now for the shimmer, I use the dense side of the brush that comes with the Modern Renaissance and apply the color “Antique Bronze” first packing it onto the center of my lid, then taking “Vermeer” and doing the same thing, and lastly applying the shade under my brow bone to define it, and that completes the eye look!

 

For my face, I will not go into to much detail, since it is very similar to my Current Makeup Routine | Winter 2018, however for blush I decided to use the color “Breeze”  from the ABH Radiant Blush kit. For highlighter I used my mini Becca Rose Gold Highlighter and for my lips I used the Essence Prisma Glow Shine Lipgloss. A simple glam casual Valentine’s day makeup look.

Here is the completed Makeup look. (excuse my hair, I am just staying home all day). The shimmer also does not show up very well in this photo, so my apologies.
