lately, i have been working on several different journals - a little moleskine cahier for the sketchbook project, my current personal art journal, a japanese accordion moleskine that is part of a round robin i am organizing, i will post scans and photos of these projects later.
i made a few spreads for a traveling journal: journal 3311 - a journal started by aprile of notpaper blog which highlights many different collage artists - she even did a feature of me a few months ago.
i was the first one to receive the journal so obviously it was mostly blank pages inside. i did 3 spreads i am pretty happy with:
i've been having a lot of fun with doing tissue paper backgrounds. i love the texture the tissue paper makes with its wrinkles and if you lightly apply some paint, you can still see the layer of text underneath.
i also used some crayons around the edges of the pages, i've been using these silky crayons which you can smudge around and are water soluble. i also like mine because several of the crayons are metallic so it gives the page a subtle shimmery touch.
i'm not sure if this spread is finished yet...
