#WOYWW 306 Trying New Things in my Art Journal Diary

A mess lol
That's what's on my workdesk :)
I've been trying new things with art journaling
I am actually going to add journaling
to those pages you see there.

I usually clean my brushes in loose piece of paper
or in a spiral art journal.
After that page is full of paint
I use it as a ephemera to decorate my art journal pages.
I tore up the paper in little pieces
and add it to the art journal that I am working on,
and that's what you see here.
The only thing I would do different next time
is prep my page putting gesso first :)

See you around :)


  1. That sounds like a great technique! It's so fun to try new things all the time. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #49

  2. Looks like a fun place to create.

  3. Great looking desk (? coffee table?). I spotted the Gelatos that I bought too. Have you used them yet? Mine are still in the packet (although I hav e watched some videos on how to use them).
    Have a great week,

  4. Looks good to me. You have to try new things in order to develop.
    Have a great crafty week, Angela x 36 x

  5. Great looking desk and it sounds to me you have a plan to use those bits and pieces. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Vickie #8

  6. What a nice play area. Your page looks great. Why would you add the gesso? To make the page stiffer?
    Happy belated WOYWW

    1. Gesso helps to make the paper stronger, also it makes it easier to move paint around.

  7. I like your ideas about how not to waste paint. I think that I will have to try that too!
