I did take some time recently to work on the last two pages in a little art journal - altered book that I'd started two years ago and never quite finished. I really enjoy the style of journaling that Teesha Moore teaches so thought I'd give that a try on these pages. It really is a relaxing way of working - no planning ahead of time. Just brushing on some acrylic paint for the background and when that's dry, adding some strips cut from various magazine pages to make the border. Add a little shading with some of the newish Pan Pastels and a focal figure - made up of several different pictures from magazines. I added a saying I'm fond of and a lot of doodling with my milky pens to add the finishing touches. I really like the result and think I'll try another page or two or three...what do you think?
