I have recently decided to start art journaling again. I found my old one from school and since I didn't finish it then, I'm going to finish it now. I made it out of a Shakespeare handbook I found at the thrift store.I covered the outside with paper and the pages gesso. Depending on what was on the page, I used black, white or clear gesso. The swatches above are in oil and at the time I was trying to figure out what color palette I wanted for a piece I was working on.
Last night I worked on a spread and had a lot of fun getting back into it. I went a bit messier and more colorful than I did when I was in school. Hopefully I'll get a picture up tomorrow.
