This was one of the “Action” shots that did not make it into the Miami magazine, It is one of my favorites. I was so nervous having the photos taken but this one captured me in a moment of mark making!
I know you don’t see my face but you do see my page!
I started with a magazine page and scraped gesso across the background using an old credit card. I used lots of different colors and then added some random stenciling to the paper using black and white paints. I punched circles and added them to my book. Now I just have to journal.
This journal was designed a little differently. I ripped muslin into four foot strips and then the same with some used underpaper and alternated them, attaching them with staples at one end.
I gessoed both sides of the muslin scraping and pushing it into the fibers.
The journal is meant to be rolled up.
Adding depth to the already started pages
The start of the journaling
This is a fun sized journal to work in and I like the different surfaces.
I used Pebeo Paints, Gesso (of course), Scribble Sticks, Neocolor II, sprays, Stains and paint pens
This is a journal that I designed for a workshop a couple of years ago and I love coming back to it and adding bits n pieces.
