Usually in my altered book art journals, I do watercolor so that the text still shows through. But once I started this project, it became acrylic paint heaven. I tend to favor acrylics anyway, and I really had fun with these two projects, combined into an art journal spread. It is still pretty amazing to me that I can actually do some sketching and free-hand cutting and drawing, albeit at a beginner level.
Yep, that’s me there, and I’m taking a home baked pie to someone special, but I have to trek through the snowy woods to get there! Thank goodness for the thick, heavy sweater and scarf!
