100 Days | Art Journal (2)

I’ve been making art journal pages recently, and intend to keep it up for a hundred days, to help with my creative mojo. (The goal is not an ‘every day’ one though, since I don’t want this to become a chore instead of a creative retreat.)

Since my first eight pages went well, I bought a thicker drawing book to help me use up both sides of the paper sheets.

In this set too, I’ve mostly used gel printing with regular acrylics and stencils. I also painted using stencils, drew freehand, and did finger painting.

I gesso’ed some pages to see if the gel printing is affected, and it doesn’t look like it is. It’s definitely more useful for watercoloring than for gel printing.

I’ve also used paper in other ways – cutting patterns into the paper, masking, and using cut paper strips and scraps. Masking is something that I’d definitely like to use more, and in better ways!

Other materials used include oil pastels, random circular lids, and leftover string. I’m making a list of ideas as they occur to me; I hope I use them sometime.

  1. Great art book. Some of your pages would make pretty cards. Your art book is a clever way of trying new techniques. I understand what you mean about not making it a daily chore. I was worried that my temperature blanket would get to the ‘chore’ point, but so far it’s been just a short break to relax and start the day. I hope you have a relaxing weekend.
