And here are a couple photos of the beginning stages of my actual Art Journal page.
I thought I wanted to collage some random pieces of paper to add interest to the background.
I applied a coat of gesso and began to colour my page with the Gelatos. At this point my Gelatos and I were not friends. I did not like the coverage, and it seemed that no matter what I did, because my pages are not flat anymore, there is warping and texture, I couldn't get them to blend the way I was hoping.
So then I just covered it up :) After this, things began to fall into place. I'll share my completed pages tomorrow!!
