Some new art journal pages




I've been trying to make it a habit to draw every day. MUCH harder than one thinks, if you are a perfectionist like me! I joined the yahoo group Everyday Matters, and they provide so much inspiration and helpful advice. That's where I got the idea to use gouache for my pages instead of acrylics. Oh, man! Does that totally change things! Now my pages don't stick together, and my pages are soooo bright! Next on the to try list is watercolors, and my Daniel Smith order should be here any day (another recommendation from the EDM group)! So I am totally inspired to keep creating!

Love where your going with your Journal... and welcome to EDM. You're going to LOVE the Daniel Smith colors.. expensive but WORTH it. I've never tried the Sakura pens you blogged about... I love my Sakura Microns... because they DO NOT RUN even if you put a wash on them immediately.
Enjoyed your blog... keep it up...
