If you've followed my past posts at all, you'll probably know that I've toyed with the whole idea of journaling for ages but not really got very far with it. This is partly do with a 'fear' or starting. When you are sat staring at a blank page it can be quite daunting knowing how or where to start. The beauty of this workshop was that we started with a completely blank journal and just played with lots of messy inks, and paints all day, making backgrounds in different ways, before focusing in on completing some of the pages.
We worked with acrylic inks (they were new to me but I really like them!), acrylic paints, water colour pencils and shaving foam! Yes shaving foam - great technique and quite addictive!!
Really like this one - I can see a fairy in there waiting for me to reveal her!
Then we worked on finishing a few pages up - so more messy play with paints and inks :o) !!
I hope you like these pages. I feel a little braver about journaling now. I've joined up to Irreversibly Moi's challenge - Fall in Love With Art Journaling which will last 10 weeks - here's hoping I can keep up with it. The first challenge was to use your initials to create a page - I decided to create a basic page, using just my first initial 'S' and I created it with a Uni-Posca gold pen and a purple coloured biro.
