Playing In An Art Journal

Playing in an art journal by drawing, painting or sketching makes me happy.

My page was done with watercolor and a Gelly Roll pen for the hair details. There is no problem going over the watercolor with the pen once the page is dry. The Gelly Roll pens come in many colors, thicknesses and qualities, like sparkle or glaze.

It’s not perfect.

I wasn’t striving for perfect and when I’m not striving for perfect, what ever happens is awesome.

I’m working on practicing.

I don’t have many blank pages in this journal. Once I get to the end, I will go back through and add more artwork or details to previous pages. Many of the pages are only backgrounds, waiting for me to get back to them and play.
