Hello My Artsy Friends!
Can you believe that September is already at its end? Fall is here! Hooray! (Well, OK, it’s not exactly here in Texas yet, but hoping cooler temperatures are on the way!) So for week 18, I searched long and hard for something fun, painty and had some white space. I don’t know about you, but I struggle with white space! I see all this space and think, “Color, there must be color everywhere.” I found the perfect layout when I saw ‘Feather Art Journal #26’ by Wilna Furstenberg. She created this journal layout in a series of 4 layouts featuring exactly the same pieces, just different colors, and configurations. (If you have the time, check out the other videos in the series. They are truly inspiring as well and what an awesome way to play in your journal!)
Wasn’t that just fabulous? I’m super excited to brayer, drop and doodle with paint! Wilna does such a fabulous job explaining how to do each step. If you don’t have a brayer, I’m willing to bet using the side of an old gift card to swipe on the paint would work. Remember not to get too caught up in doing exactly what Wilna does, but listen to your guts and go with your creative flow! Have faith in yourself and the courage to push beyond what you think your limitations are. You just might surprise yourself!
Be sure to check out Wilna on her links below and show her some love!

As always, you can recreate this layout, or just use it as inspiration when creating your own. If you do choose to recreate, please be sure to give Wilna credit.
Remember you have until Sunday midnight (whatever your time zone is) to post your art journal layout, or whatever it is you were inspired to create this week, to Instagram using the #inspiby tag. Be sure to tag me (and Karen too) in your posts as we love seeing what you create each week! I can’t wait to get into the studio and get inky!
