Art Journaling Under the Influence…of the 70’s

What happens when Carolyn Dube listens to happy 70's music while art journaling? Check out the video and see how she used this Gelli print and Dylusions paint!

I was under the influence of the 70’s while I made this art journal spread. The music was blaring and my muse stopped by to spark my play by making this floral Gelli print® call to me from a stack of prints. If you’ve ever used a Gelli Plate®, you know how easy it is to make a giant stack of papers!

What song was playing? Together We’re Better by the Partridge Family. I’ve been a bit addicted to the sounds of David Cassidy of late partially because my muse always seems to visit when he is singing. My teenager is not so thrilled with this, especially when she has friends over…but she’ll just have to deal with the loud music!

Watch Art journaling with stencils under the influence of happy 70’s music on YouTube.

If you’ve never heard this…or want to hear it again…thanks to YouTube…here it is!

Watch The Partridge Family- Together We’re Better on YouTube.

Rae Missigman might recognize her flower stencils in the Gelli print® that started the play. And yes, those cars from my Coming and Going stencil are most definitely tailgating…Oops! Maybe the drivers were just listening to way too much music.

Since they’re listening to music, had to capture that on the page with Nancy Curry’s stencil with a bit of sparkle from Viva Decor 3D stamp paint. Thank you David for the tunes that are so inspiring my play!

    So funny ! In my workspace, I have the little Hallmark Partridge Family Bus ornament that plays their theme song. I always push the button when I’m sitting down to work on something. Always makes me happy & ready to roll !!

    Thanks Carolyn, I just love your happy videos, they inspire me to try new techniques. Thanks to you I’ve signed up for Wanderlust 2016 & & & I loved David Cassidy in the 70’s so the clip from the PF was brilliant!

    I just found you via the post on Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s blog. I loved the tissue box (I always call them kleenex, too!) post, so I went to your blog to see what else you had posted. I’m enjoying your posts and videos very much.

    I love this journal entry. I don’t tailgate, but I do listen to loud music when I’m driving. I also love David Cassidy and was a loyal fan of the Partridge Family!

    As far as your teenagers go…lol, turn-about’s fair play!
