Spread in my new art journal:
acrylic, painted papers, marker,
pastels, collage images...
watercolor, inchie collages,
and vintage papers.
This journal has heavier paper and
is spiral bound. It's larger in
page size than the last journal
I used, which unfortunately means
the entire page doesn't quite fit
on my scanner. I was hoping the paper
wouldn't buckle when I painted it.
It still buckles, but flattens out nicely
when weighted overnight beneath a
stack of heavy books.
I found myself hesitant to create
the first page in the new art journal...
so I made a collage on a separate
piece of paper and then glued it into
the new journal. One way of
overcoming those blank
pages and wanting
the first piece to be "good."
