7" x 10" mixed media journal page
“Let your heart guide you. It whispers softly, so listen closely."
OMG.... I need some guidance from anyone on the current painting I'm working on.....lol. I'm not so sure what's going on but I am encountering frustration at every turn. After about an hour on her today I threw my hands in the air and decided to do a quick journal page. This is the page above. She was more than happy to pop up and show me some love today. : )
I thought I'd post my favorite paper to work on. I buy Arches Bright White Watercolor Paper, 300 lb. Rough, 22" x 30". Omg....I love the weight of this stuff and the deckled edges make my eyes light up. It is not cheap though. $18 for one 22" x 30" inch sheet.....yikes!! I cut this one down to 9" x 12" sheets and was left with small 5" x 5" pieces to give as little gifts. Actually....I don't cut.....I use a ruler to make a very strong crease and then tear the paper away from itself. It leaves me with the beautiful edges. The thing I like about this paper is how strong and hearty it is. Can you tell how much I really love it? lol
fill your heart with art and awesome art supplies.....u deserve it!!
