Life is definitely all about the journey…the destination is only a by-product!
Hi there! Just sharing a few images of what I have been working on during my morning art journaling time. What have you been working on in your studio?
If you are enjoying the way I photograph my artwork take a look at “How to Create Flatlay Photos for Instagram” as my gift to you!
I would like to invite you to hang out with us in the “Clarity Thru Color” Facebook Group. It is a private group of supportive creatives where I offer podcasts on techniques and Q & A’s.
I’m so excited to share what the members of my ArtMythos Online Course have been up to. We spend a lot of time over in our secret Facebook group sharing and talking about all things art. Here are some snippets of those conversations.
Some gorgeous examples of what some of our members created these past few months!
“Still loving those ink blots. I am starting to think that these inked papers and the organic ink blots are helping me make a bridge between how I work sculpturally. Fingers crossed! At least I’m having fun.” – Celia Fulton Walden
“I used to paint doors, walls and windows with encaustic (wax) paints… experimented in my journal with gelli prints instead. Writing on walls! Plus some other experiments using torn paper ensos and ink blots.” – Lynda Fish
“I found some envelopes to Gelli print on and created an envelope book. Here’s some pics!” – Tammy Swafford
(This technique was shown to my students in one of our”studio video series” inside of our ArtMythos: classroom!)
“Here are some reverse/resist inkblots I made while experimenting with resist fluid. I used a photocopy of a black & white napkin design, put some marks down with the clear fluid, folded the paper in half to make my inkblot, waited for it to dry, then went over the entire paper with distress stains. Lots of love to you all!”
I’ve been sharing my love of inkblots with the ArtMythos: members and they are doing some incredible experimentations and beautiful techniques of their own!
“Really beautiful. Such a soothing palette.” – Celia Fulton Walden
“Today’s pages and Sumi-e paper and ink experiments.” – Celia Fulton Walden
“Finished the Clean-Up Journal. I would like you (Robyn Mcclendon) to know that I really appreciate you telling your story in today’s video. Your prompts always make me think and approach my art in new ways. I did a few prints today, and I really like what’s going on in the paper from the hardware store. I have also included pictures from my finished journal.” – Tammy Swafford
“My first prints with Gelli plate on deli paper, craft paper and copy paper. What great fun!!!” – Maryse Perdriat
Even my members who are new to Gelli printing are doing beautiful and organic prints using my techniques that make experimenting with this monoprinting process equally rewarding.

More inspiration from my studio…
As I continue to work daily in the studio searching for new inspiration and techniques to express what spins in my spirit…
I have to admit that it’s not as easy as it may seem from your side of things…
Challenging ourselves to be fully immersed in our passions, mine is creating and teaching mixed media art and helping other find that spark of creativity…really requires us staying in the ring with ourselves….
So I share my work to inform, prod and coax you to yours, whatever that may be, but please be assured that I’m in the ring too!…Everyday!!!
Much Love and Peace
