Awesome walkthrough.  I've rarely used gradient mapping for anything, I'll definitely be trying out this method to see how efficient it is.  I've used adjustment layers and masking them in for coloring, this really seems way more effective.  I would set my adjustment layer to 'color', but this looks like a lot more control.

Thanks for opening the door on the potential of this feature :D

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)

Infusions and Muses

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...

I hate white walls.  My old apartment, I had to paint some areas with color.  The foyer, I painted a pale blue, thought of adding clouds, but it didn't really fit.  I ended up hating the blue, not because of the color, but the matte finish.

I live in my boyfriend's house now, and the walls are all a slightly off-white, so slightly it is pointless for it to not be white.  I hate the walls.  And empty walls are worse than plain ones.

Fun altered paintbrush, hopefully, it will accent her walls nicely.

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.
