Art journaling is such a relaxing and inspiring process. I have my friend Megan coming over today to do just that. I always have pages ready to be filled with words and more imagery. Below are painted pages from several different journals. This one is from a journal I made with large blank index cards. This page has a light coat of gesso, papers adhered with gel medium, stamped images and a wash of watercolor.
This next one in my Moleskine was just watercolor with an image stamped in gouache. The same stamp and gouache that I used in the journal above on the left. Almost hard to notice
Watercolored page with random doodles.
Another journal that I adhered envelope papers to the pages first. You know the insides of all those envelopes that come in the mail have such great designs. Then a bit of dry brushed gesso, stamps, paper and the outside wrapper from a book of postage stamps.
On this page I adhered some paper and added acrylic paint.
Then with a some stamps and a watery coat of gesso it gave it a whole different look.
These pages are ready for my words and more imagery.Which is what I did on these following pages. The first one had a big portion of printed paper and a chipboard frame.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are inspired to pick up your journal and have fun.
