Doodling in my art journal....


travel-journal-page-by-Yvonne-Yam-for-The-Crafter's-Workshop

After a couple of failed attempts at keeping an art journal, I am totally embracing the process now. Err... I have like 5 journals. *winks*

Some nights I only create backgrounds with colorants...other nights I make more progress and actually complete pages. Like this one.:)


After applying gesso on my pages, I played with some Derwent Inktense blocks, blending the colours with a bit of water. Then I applied Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso with The Crafter's Workshop stencil. 


After that, I doodled with Daler Rowney gesso and added some splatters with Tattered Angels Gimmer Glam. I varied the intensity of the gesso with water as the effect I wanted to achieve was a semi-opaque black. 


Then I added some Tim Holtz rub-ons.


I went over my doodles with a white pen to really bring out the funky background design.


What do you think?
