So I've been working on creating yet another art journal. I started to say that I have no idea why I'm doing this when I have one huge art journal that is swelling at the binding but holding tight for now, a separate "Rage" journal, and 2 others that didn't work out. But I do know why I'm doing this:
I found this Peter Pan book, and the illustrations inside are just beautiful. There's one of mermaids that is so amazing it inspires a color scheme for an entire room! The problem is that I find Peter Pan to be a little creepy. Ironic, right, that I love Twilight so much and yet a children's book about a boy who can fly showing up in my kid's bedroom freaks me out. LOL
So I picked a random page and began to create art. And it promptly rubbed off the super-shiny page. Markers, gel pens, even pencils were no match for the shiny cream-colored pages. Gesso was a good idea, but I don't have any of that. I do, however, have a lot of craft paints which will dry to a matte finish that has the perfect "teeth" for other mediums. So I began to simply start at the beginning and paint my way through the book: backgrounds for now, and if I'm inspired to do more, it's all good.
