My Art Journal Travels!

Today I have a couple of pages from my art journal.  We spend Thanksgiving in Chicago and I carry my journals and a few supplies with me.  This time around we are quite a bit of down time to relax so I worked on a few pages.  Black Friday I headed to Blick Art Supplies and picked up a watercolor pocket size Moleskine plus a few other supplies. I may keep this one with me on a daily basis to doodle in during lunch at work or just for whenever.  I will show you the one page I made in the pocket journal in another post.



***************************



I bought a few stamps with me (Dylusions Rubber Stamps), 6x6 Crafters Workshop templates, and a few markers.  I put Gesso on a few pages before I left and when you use Faber Castell's Pitt artist brush pens they stay wet and you can use your fingers to blend colors or add texture. In the close up below you will see a little texture I added to the leaves.  I colored in the leaves then used a paper towel to add that spotted look.



Thanks so much for stopping by.
