I had some black gesso left over from painting a book cover, so I painted it onto a couple pages in my journal...then doodled with metallic Sharpies. The facing page still only has the black gesso rectangle...haven't decided what to do there yet.
More patterns...with flat watercolors & the thin diagonal stripes are Sharpies. These are from 8.26.2013.
Then I went back & added some bright colors to those stripes from the 8.6.2013 spread. I like the bright colors with those black & white stripes.
I'm glad I started this journal...it's a fun distraction. I drew a paisley pattern a few days ago...still need to color it in then take pix. I'll play in this book when I feel I want to...no pressure...no worries.
