Art Journaling


I have been busy with the grandchildren and I am not getting enough art time for myself but this past weekend I had a chance to work in one of my art journals.



This journal is a hand bound journal I made using a old book cover and recycled scrapbook paper. The scrapbook paper is the heavy white paper you find in those older scrapbooks.

I like to prepare my background pages in advance. So what I will do is gesso the pages and then paint them. I usually have about eight pages ready to go. Then when I feel creative I don't have to wait for the paint to dry on the backgrounds.

Thanks for looking
Arlene
