Since I haven't posted for awhile (did you notice the last 4 posts within an hour of each other?) I am getting a lot of posts out of my system. This last one is my newest journal (the above photo is the cover...still deciding if I want to add more or not). I took a couple months off from journaling. was just feeling like it was getting old and same-o for me but recently I have been wanting to have a journal to work in again. I went to the loft yesterday and cranked out these backgrounds to get me going and now I'm jazzed again to play.
so...this is just acrylic paint put down fairly wet (yellow) and then dragging the dropper from some adirondak ink across the page.
This is dribbling some fluid ink with the page vertical.
I've already started laying some collage down...
This is a shot of the pieces that I paint before making my books. I still make my 8x10, 16-page journals just like I show in my videos. I take the 3 pieces of paper, cut to 10x22 and paint both sides before making it into a book.
