Just playin with painted pages..

Painting pages for journals

funky flowers fun

These are just some of the styles I create for adding the painted pages to my journals. With each journal, whatever the size, I give the client the option to choose between all blank watercolor pages, or a mix of blank and painted pages. For the painted pages I use Canson 90 lb mixed media paper  and Americana Craft Paint  I usually get them at Walmart for 2 for 1$. I love how the paper feels after it has dried.It makes it thick and a very matte finish which is great for painting on top of..or drawing with a pen marker or paint pens.

The pages are fun to do and I usually create them when I am pondering what I want to do next or if I dont feel like thinking too much and I just want to play with paint.

I also use my treasured eraser stamps which I made years ago but I still love today..

..and then I cut them up to fit each journal

New Abstract series..a mix of paint, ink paper and digital collage  …its kind of like a digital printmaking…using layers upon layers of images and paint and paper…sometimes up to 10  or more layers to create one of a kind abstract pieces that resemble printmaking techniques or lino  prints… or monoprints..
