Lots of experimenting with new materials here, also some scribble faces and quickly drawn “step-above-a-scribble” face LOL. Starting to learn what supplies I like working with the best and others I need to practice more with. Also finding out just how important paper is for different mediums! For example, 100 lb presentation card stock is AMAZING for markers! Toned paper and craft paper is perfect for black and white china markers. Flat canvas and old vinyl album covers are great for collage mixed media. I really love working on watercolor paper however NOT when using markers like copic as it sucks up all the ink.
This is my first Mission Inspiration Art Journal. Mission Inspiration is a fun group created by Mike Deakin, there are journaling prompts in his Facebook group and YouTube channel, and he has an amazing website with journaling prompts, digi downloads and handmade journals.
This is a supportive group and great for all levels of talent! Very freeing and positive community. I find it a great place to learn, relax, and make new friends.
