new art journal pages
right now my favorite art supply to work with is acrylic inks. i use the FW inks they basically give a watercolor effect & the colors are nice and vibrant. a drop or two is all you need really and then i like splashing some water on and spilling the color around. easy and fun. this spread is the one i used acrylic inks, the 2nd and 3rd spreads i just use acrylics. after the ink dries i added marks with oil pastels. i also want to give credit to alisa golden's book: Painted Paper which is how i started using FW acrylic inks. she illustrates lots of fun techniques that are really easy and beautiful to make wonderful papers.
in this spread, i used black india ink + a dip pen to make random marks on the page.
i stamped painted bubble wrap on these pages, then i doodled with a pen to outline the circles
