Book Giveaway and a Watercolor & Resist Video

Jenn Mason over at EverydayArtist Studio gave a wonderful synopsis of Journal Spilling and she is giving away a copy of Journal Spilling this week (comment on her blog here by Wednesday evening, midnight). To get in on the fun, I made a video on using gel pens and crayons as resists with watercolor (with a little spritz of alcohol thrown in for good measure - why not?!)

Jenn's blog is informative and fun. Go have a look. Thanks for the great review Jenn!

Here's the video:

So get on over the Jenn's blog and leave a comment. (You could also leave one here, if you'd like, comments really keep us going in blogland.)  xoxo

Yes, I get inspired by this video for sure. I like resists too, but never tried with gel pens. Not sure I have the right kind but I will try it out. Great videos Diana!

I love gel pens, and i thought the way they were used in the video was really cool! I'd love to try it out as well.

Thank you! I have your book, but these videos just make it all the more fun. I'm enjoying seeing you work! Now, I'm off to play in my studio...a day off and some art. What could be better?

Diana, so happy to have found your blog, by way of Catherine Witherall's blog. I took your book with me to Journalfest, read it on the plane going, and coming...and LOVED it! You have such a great way of expressing yourself, and you provide some wonderful inspiration in there. Thanks so much!
