Great page, even though it didn't start out in the same direction you were going.  But that is half the exploration, getting there.  Congratulations.  Really enjoyed the process of this.

I want to be starting an art journal, though I really am in need of some gesso.  I made some DIY gesso, but it is just okay in a pinch.  That heavy gesso looks fantastic.  I love textures and you achieved some really great ones.

Gillian Tries DIY - Gesso
I've been watching several art journaling videos lately and notice they all have one thing in common, gesso.  Gesso is expensive, so I don't own any.  I had some once when I was stretching my own canvases.  So, I wanted to find a cheaper, do-it-yourself opt...

Found the perfect journal to start an art journal.  It's mixed media paper and by Strathmore and the reviews look great.  Added to my wishlist.  It's spiral bound, but you can cover that, think I saw a suggestion to use tape.  :shrug:  

Anyways, adding to this collection as a reminder.  (affiliate link)

Art Journal - a Work in Progress
I had this old blank book, which I didn't like the cover.  So I tore it apart and repapered it in the Stardust cardstack from Die Cuts With a View .  I sealed the cover of the book with matte acrylic gel medium , and it works so wonderfully.  I love the fin...

I'm gillianivy.deviantart.com  You can see my art there and in my Etsy shop Miscellaneous Juxtapositions.

I'm a self taught artist, and I work in a myriad of styles and mediums.  Most notably would be my 'signature style' in metallic gel pens with abstract designs and patterns.

I'm interested in art, CSS, Sims 3, zombies, sci-fi and fantasy, Doctor Who, and random offensive humor.  I live with my boyfriend and our four-year-old son.  We met on DeviantART.
