Trying Something New – DeviantScrap Art

My friend, Sharon, got me into another new thing (I guess it's only fair, we do it to each other all the time) called DeviantScrap which is a web site where you can buy kits for digital collage and art. WARNING!!!!! It is very addictive! At least it is for me. At first I figure this may be like many things I get into... I shop, shop, shop and buy, buy, buy and then do a thing or two and drop it and move on to the next shiny object. Well I have at least gotten off to a good start so far and am really enjoying this. I can see it inspiring many, many fun ideas.

Here are my first couple attempts. The "Walking Our Ducks" was first and then "If It Ain't Baroque Don't Fix It" came next. I spent a LOT more time on that one and had a blast. I like the detail, but really the ones with just a few good elements are just as nice I think. I think I will have a lot of fun with these sets.

I added a couple others that I forgot about. The first was "Time in the Bronze Age" which I made for Sharon. And the other one is "Rhino Reverie" with a circus theme. I have a thing for rhinos which I cannot explain. If you haven't seen the kits or the site do check them out at

Shout! Shout! Let it all out

The latest journal page - a first finished page in a new Moleskine journal. The background was done with my new PanPastels – which I am just LOVING! Collage pieces and some Sharpie and Bic Markit markers.

Tonight is a two-fer! I got a 2nd page done. A little simpler - a pastel background and hand drawn letters.


Feelin' Groovy

A journal page that I did tonight. A bit of collage a bit of stamping and a background using my new PanPastels.

It's All About Me

This page is now done or nearly so. I didn't know about the musical "All About Me" until I was looking for lyrics that would go with this page. But it fit the queenly collaged girl perfectly. This is my first page with the PanPastels and I am loving how they go down. I've done more background pages with them also.

My Next Next Adventure

Ok, I fell short on the 21 Secrets -- did my usual initial burst of enthusiasm and then fizzled out on the follow through. Well here's my next thing I'm gonna try: Artstrnauts Club. I've signed up, watched some amazing and inspiring videos and bought some PanPastels, met some neat folks on the Facebook group and have started a few journal pages.... not a bad start so far. I hope to keep up with it more than I did with 21 Secrets last year (here's hoping).

Here's the pages so far and I'm really loving using the new PanPastels - can't say enough good things about them!
