Still With It . . .

"Oh, My Baby"
Art Journal Page
Still with it: this is the second art journal page that I've done since reading the newest Art Journaling by Somerset Studio. I love the idea of using leftover paint from other projects to use in the journal. I challenged myself to create something out of the bright red, orange and blue paints that Kendra was using before cleaning out her palette (er, paper plate) . These are not normally colors that I am drawn to, but since the journal is about experimenting, I thought I would give it a try. The vintage image is by Clearly Vintage Blog, a site I stumbled upon that offers free images to use in your artwork.
BTW, if anyone has any great ideas about what type of pens to use in an art journal, I'm all ears: I really struggled with this Sharpie as I had so much texture on the page. Any suggestions?

Hi! Youve got a lovely blog and these journal pages are so lovely. The colours are vibrant and beautiful.
I also struggle to find a good marker pen for my textured pieces. If you find a good pen to use please let me know! :-)
