Holiday Journal

I have set myself a challenge to make a holiday art journal. I'm fairly new to art journalling, although I am familiar with many mixed media techniques. So it's the first time I have done this. Limited by the materials I brought with me - sketchbook, pencil case, brush pens and travel watercolour palette, made me creative in using found objects for my journal pages.

Art journal pages

I have been preparing journal pages with collage, using old, tattered music manuscript.

Monday, 31 July 2017

This morning I have been working in my Black and White journal with my mixed media group.
The sketch book was made in India and has textural hand made paper pages. My journal pages are collages, made from a variety of paper sources.
