Breaking out the New Art Journal

I have finally spend the money and bought a “real” art journal.

Strathmore mixed media art journal

Actually, that was a few weeks ago, so after painting the faces, I had paint left over and no plans on where to put it – so out comes the new Strathmore mixed media art journal!

(Interesting to note that my fear of starting out in a new art journal was less than my desire to use up the extra paint!)

Once the paint was dry, I went over the images with a fine marker any my Golden High Flow Acrylic pen (Thanks Julie!!)

Here are a few close ups:

Stencil used are by Stencil Girl – the bird one is from the May Stencil of the Month Club. The Quatrefoil Mix Stencil by Michelle Ward is also be Stencil Girl. *LOVE* these stencils – sturdy, have their name etched onto them AND they clean really well!

The stencils did bleed a little – completely MY fault; impatient and adding too much water. “Steady as she goes” is a MUST for stencilling, especially with paints!!

Happy creating!
