When you begin to open your eyes and look beyond the usual materials you work with, some amazing things can happen. I think it really opens a different window in your brain.
I began by adhering the paper towel into my art journal with Liquitex Gel Medium, matte. I'd had a chance to catch up with Creative Jumpstart 2015, which certainly gave me some inspiration. I specifically chose the matte after listening to Nathalie Kahlbach explain how the glossy makes your pages stick. CJS2015 is such an inspirational online class, be sure to check it out here.
class Finding the Art in my Journal, be sure to check this out also. My husband and I went out to the Coffee Planet on Sunday to listen to one of his music friends perform. My husband always take his sketch book with him and draws everywhere. A couple of his pens sat on the table, a napkin was there, so I thought, why not try the blind contour drawing exercise May asked us to do. So I drew three. My favorite is the one above that I did of my husband.
Thanks for joining me through this exploration of my art journal, and thanks for the inspiration Nat and May!
