A fun art journal layout today using many different mixed media techniques and mediums. Today I am introducing you to another type of art journal. A disc bounded one!
Working on a disc bounded art journal gives you the freedom to remove the page, work on it and then put everything back together when you finish. This will allow you to use lots of sprays and water without the fear of ruining the rest of your book. It will also allow you to work more freely, removing the fear of what will happen if you don’t like the final result on a book page… in this case, just don’t put the page back! Also the size I am working on is small, 6×6 is perfect for every art journal beginner out there! Just go for it, it’s so much fun!
For my background I did some gel printing. This is a technique that you can’t do when you work on a classic art journal book… well there are workarounds but it’s not the same as taking the page directly on top of your gel plate.
For coloring my page I combined fluid acrylics with indian ink markers. And check out the video on how I used my dip pen holder to do my sketch lines and doodling. A dip pen holder is great for art journaling, since it will never let you down. You can go over acrylics, pastes… you name it and it will always write …. just clean the nib at the end and you are good to go. Plus you can switch from color to color easily and it dries permanent.
