I filled my regular art journal a couple months ago. I’ve been working in my sketch journal a lot, which is important, but sometimes I just want to smear paint around and glue and be messy. It was time for a new art journal. I usually hand stitch them but just wasn’t finding the time for it so I decided to make a spiral bound one this time. This one is also smaller than I normally use, at 5 1/2″ x 9 1/4″. Humpty (I painted him just for this), the bee (hand carved rubber stamp, and the M all have significance to me.
I decorated the cover but didn’t get to work in it yesterday. Instead, I did a page in my sketch journal for The Sketchbook Challenge’s new May theme – resist. I used a white crayon on highlighted areas of the puppy and as the border in the background, then washed watercolor over it. So a resist technique to portray something I can’t resist – puppies!
