There is nothing I love more than messy, painty fingers. There's something about getting your hands right in there when creating and this art journal spread is the perfect mix of this!
Gesso gesso gesso
I use a lot of gesso in this journal spread but not just to prepare my pages for paint like you would expect. I use it as a white paint here for sections of the page and also to blend my sections together. Gesso is a great medium, so versatile!
scribble your thoughts
I love adding in snippets of journaling to my pages but it can be hard to share anything too personal online. So I like to make sure that I write things in a really messy and hard to read way. I can just about make it out but often it's just a feeling or whatever ever is going through my mind at the time of creation. Give it a try next time you're creating!
