Thought I'd share a few art journal pages I've been sitting on for ages. Art journals for me let me play with things a bit at a time. I keep returning to the same pages - days, weeks and sometimes months later - adding things and changing things.
I have a half a dozen or more journals laying around. My favorite one these days is the Canson mixed media XL. Somehow I even have two of the same size - both in progress!
These are a few pages where I was playing with supplies, trying them out and just experimenting. First up, colored pencils - different types and brands.
Gelatos, stencils and black paint. You can get a really great effect by rubbing the gelatos with a paper towel and blending. This was done using a Crafter's Workshop stencil.
and adding modeling paste...
