With things going so good I decided to take a break from the tarot card to mess around in my art journal for a bit. I've started a new art journal and I LOVE what's going on there.
I took a mail-order catalog from one of my favorite retailers. The catalog I'm using is from DharmaCraft but of course you could use any catalog or magazine. Then I took a clear gesso and painted every page. This gives the slippy paper a tooth to work on.
Now I'm painting out each page. I'm painting around some of the pictures and words from the catalog. Once these pages dry I'll write, draw, embellish, etc around the words and pictures. I think it will be an interesting journal and give me lots of things to write about.
