I don’t just art journal to have fun and play with cool supplies – although there’s nothing wrong with that, and I do a lot of it. I also art journal to record my thoughts and clarify how I feel about things; sometimes this is about my job, as well as personal stuff. Today’s first journal page is a work-related one. I like how it turned out.

And boy, they were worth the wait … I love them. I’ve just been playing round with them using gesso, inks, fluid acrylics, and working in three different journals to see what happens on the various surfaces. Here’s some of what I’ve done so far.
