I found this small ‘mixed media paper pad’ at Michael’s and I’ve been playing with it for both stamping, but also doing art journal-y stuff inside. Here’s one I made, inspired by a kids T-shirt I saw. I’m big into using a journal or pad of paper to experiment and learn on. To get used to ideas, to make sketches, and to try stuff out without any pressure of it being a good finished piece.
The “oh WOW!” in my art journaling/mixed media work lately is this eraseable pen. I’ve been playing with it a lot – and most of the time if I’m using a lot of fluid color over it, the erasing happens on its own. Pretty cool stuff!
Just a messy little experiment in supplies – just wanted to share. I’m loving the thickness of this paper, and this pen is pretty awesome since I can make lines, mark stuff off, and even plot an art journal page before actually starting with color.
If you’re wondering about my color – this is Dylusions ink sprays used in water brushes for fluid color. The stamps are also Dylusions.
Happy Crafting – and experimenting!
