I am very in to journaling lately and using mixed media on my pages. The below picture is a page out of one of my journals. First I painted the page with white gesso. Gesso keeps the paper from soaking up the paint and the permanent marker from bleeding through. Next, I painted the page with an acrylic paint called pear. I then decided my photos would need matting so I painted some mats using black acrylic paint. After gluing down my pictures (wallet size), I used a black permanent marker to add captions. Overall, I like how it turned out. It's messy but fun!!
