From faded jades and polka dot patterns to fluorescent pinks and swirly circles, Teesha Moore’s delectable art journal pages emit layers and layers of unique flair.  Each one is a distinct creation, brilliantly exceptional in color and design, and could not have been created without a courageous attitude.

One way Teesha remains fearless in her art journaling endeavors is by always experimenting with new ideas. Today she reveals how this secret ingredient adds a “bright” look with lettering in art journaling.

Still yearning for more art journaling ideas? We’ve asked Teesha to share a couple quick tips for extra inspiration to get your creative wheels churning:

On art journal ambiance:

My absolute favorite place to journal is in any place with a lot of natural light.  My home art desk is directly below my skylight, so that’s always a great place, but outside is fabulous as well. My family has gone to great lengths lately to have spaces like this in our yard.  I prefer quieter places as opposed to more public spaces, but since my husband likes to journal in coffee shops, I join him with my headphones and go to town.

Advice to novice and expert art journalists alike:

The best advice I think would be to never get attached to your artwork.  The minute you do, you might freeze and quit exploring the “what ifs,” and it’s that wild abandon that makes journaling so much fun.  I also tell students, “When you feel like your journal page is finished, keep going. The second time you feel that it’s finished, keep going. By the third time, it probably is finished.”  People tend to stop too soon on a page.

Teesha’s appetite for art journaling is greater than an elephant’s! Her exquisite work has been featured in several Stampington & Co. publications, including one of our personal favorites Art Journaling Spring 2013:

    Thank you Teesha for your vibrancy and gift of sharing yourself! I love this quote and elephants have a fond place in my heart. I have a fondness of the number 3-so I will remember your wisdom!

    Thanks for all the inspiration!
    Your art is stunning! Maybe, just maybe I will be brave and try in public~

    Teesha, looking at your art is like wandering in to a wonderful fantasy land. Thank you for sharing so much of your process. It’s an inspiration. I have now started my first art journal and find it liberating in so many ways.

  4. […] Earlier this year, I started noticing elephants again when I saw this art-full elephant by Jeanette House. It has become a serendipitous prompt to remind me I will be carried in quiet strength — especially when I am w-a-y high in my pendulum swing! {My most recent “fav” is by Teesha Moore.} […]

    Dear Teesha:
    I loved being in your class a few weeks ago in Petaluma, CA; I came all the way from St. Louis, MO and was not disappointed. Learned SO much from you, especially how to have fun and love what you are doing!
    Thank you for sharing yourself and your talents with all of us.
    Love ya,
    Mary
