I've already begun to start a new art journal as I know that the gathering phase can take me quite some time. I've created a few using children's cardboard books and this time I would like to work smaller again, though using a standard book, just in a diminutive size. I stumbled upon the meditative watercolour videos of Theologian @juliachendrickson on Instagram and love her conversation of art as prayer. That is something I've always felt and, since I'm not giving up on the idea of creating a black & white altered book for myself, I thought I'd actually put my tube of Liquitex payne's grey to use. Since I've been interested in creating a watercolour-like effect with my acrylics by sprinkling salt on the wet colour, I mixed it into a cream-like consistency using matte medium, flow aid & water. So far I've tried wet paint on dry watercolour paper & wet on wet and I'm really liking it though I've already envisioned collaging colourful birds & flowers to the background...we'll see if I can actually refrain myself.
