Get lost in a good book journal page
Tonight’s art journal page is dedicated to one of my favourite pasttimes, reading. I bought new books today, that’s why they’re fresh on my mind.
This is only about half my book collection (yes I read a lot of the same genre, don’t judge). The other half are stored in other bookcases and I’ve since added to the collection. I might be running out of room and need more bookcases.
This page is a mixed media page; the papers, washi tape, and ribbon were adhered down with Golden Matte Medium and then given a whitewash effect with gesso. I then added the bookcase doodle and journaling.
I don’t know if I mentioned before, but this journal I’m using is a handmade one by a lovely couple whose business name is The Dancing Moose. They’re based out of Camrose Alberta. The gentleman who made it used the same mixed media papers that I use in my journaling books, Canson Mixed Media paper, which is why I’m able to do the mixed media stuff in it.
