Hi! It's Julie here today with a little peek inside my attempt to get back into art journaling. I've always enjoyed working in my art journals but I will admit that it got pushed into the background when things got busy. I really enjoyed art journaling, so I am determined to carve out some time and do it.
Today I am showing you how to use Faber Castell Gelatos to create an art journal background. If you've read a previous post on this supply, you'll see how awesome they are for art journalers!
For today's project, I used the following Gelato colors:
(Red cherry, tangerine, green tea, and mango)
I started with white gesso and primed my page (you'll see two pages primed in this pic. I only worked with one).
My art journal is an old book I got from a garage sale's free box. :) I really love using old books as art journals. I have a total of 3 art journals started. This one has been neglected awhile so I'm giving it some love now.
In the video below, you will see part one of how I layed down my color to make a background page.
Here's a look at the page from the end of the first video:
I like how it came out here. Once dry, I proceeded to complete my page.
Part two of the process:
It was a lot of fun to just do whatever!! That's what I love about art journaling. No rules really.
Thanks for stopping by!
