Art Journal

Stage 2

I painted all the pages using Plaid Keepsake Colours gel paints, they are lovely and light. I put them on with baby wipes, blending colours together and wiping off the excess. I didn't want to use a heavy paint as i wanted some of the white of the gesso and some of the original print to still show through.

I still have no idea what will go in this book, or even if these colours will remain, but at least I now have some colour. I have started collecting images from magazines, as I don't buy newspapers and magazines it might take me a few weeks. I shall be getting sunday newspapers for a while.

Hope you like it so far.

PS I have no idea where you can get those paints from, I borrowed my friends. If anyone knows where in the uk sells them let me know.



  1. Love this, like how all the pages are different sizes
