Hello friends! I am really enjoying my art journal! Today I am going to show you how I made this two page spread and it only took 20 minutes!
Many of you have written and asked how to keep your journal pages flat especially when covering a page with paper and collage. The first part of the video is on that and I will show you my favorite paste for flat pages and I think all crafters should have a jar of it on hand. I’ll show you what it is and how to use it!
The second half of the video will be painting cherry blossoms with india ink. It is a free and easy approach. You can use watercolors if you do not have ink, even children’s watercolor paints will be fine.
Now, on to the video!
I decided to add a few marks to define the blossoms with a black Micron Pen after I looked at it a bit. typically I don’t use black in my paintings but it really enhances the feel of the quote I think. I want to thank Oriental Trading for giving me the Dr PH Martins India Ink, Canson XL Mixed Media Journal and Micron Pens I used today. Thanks so much for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
